Industry Insights: Sandcarving Equipment Maintenance

Use the best equipment. Make sure you check it frequently (tips, nozzles, hoses). Be cognizant of your compressor. Smaller units must not run continuously for large projects.

Make sure you use the right glass. Have an engineer configure the weight and load calculations for the design. Heavy and large glass must be accounted for due to the weight. The legs and floor must be able to support the weight.
