RUBI invented the manual cutter for ceramic tiles in 1951 and today we have the best and most complete range of tools and accessories for cutting and fixing ceramic tiles and other wall and floor materials.
Over time RUBI has become a world leader in the manufacture of tools for tile cutting and fixing, largely supported by design and innovation in its wide range of manual tile cutters. Thanks to the work and co-operation of all the company departments and the great loyalty of our customers, scattered all around the world, we are aware of the demands and specific needs of each market. For these reasons, we design and manufacture products and tools that are tailored to each type of market and that meet the needs of the professional.
The main advantage of manual tile cutters is their working speed. Cutting a ceramic tile is a matter of seconds compared to electric cutters.
Among the advantages of cutting ceramic tiles with a manual tool there is also being clean at work, because we can make many cuts while barely making any mess, since they do not need water or create any dust.
Another advantage of cutting ceramic tiles using a professional tile cutter is that we do not need electricity, allowing us to work anywhere on the site without needing to have a power point nearby.
Unlike power tools, manual tile cutters do not require water cooling. This gives us a great level of autonomy when it comes to working right where we want to, without needing a water supply nearby or making the surrounding area wet or dirty. Therefore, manual tile cutters are reliable tools, providing us the ability to make accurate and clean cuts on any kind of ceramics, including porcelain which is a very common material nowadays.
An interesting point about manual ceramic tile cutters is the low price of consumables. Scoring wheels are low cost and long life tools which can be used to make many cuts in a cheap and easy way. Also, they are very easy to replace on Rubi manual tile cutters, so we can easily change the scoring wheel whenever we need a different type, or when the scoring wheel reaches the end of its life.
Manual tile cutters are very safe tools because they do not contain sharp parts that may come into contact with the body. For this set of reasons we can say that they are always the first choice for professional wall and floor tile installers.
