Marble / Granite Processing
Technically , Marble is formed from re-crystallized carbon out of limestone which goes thru intense heat and pressure caused by tectonic shifting of earth’s crust .
Whereas , Granite is a solilfied rock from magma comprising of compressed quartz grains , mica and similar material .
These Rocks are drilled , chiseled and also blasted out of mountains and sent to the Processing Plant .
The processing of Marble & Granite starts from mountain rocks and it goes all the way to your Kitchen , Bathroom , Halls , Passages etc .
Briefly , the process can be described as:
Squaring the Blocks , Monolama Gangsaw machines are used for squaring the rocks from quarries , at Marnite Industries we are using diamond blades and monowire technology for swift production and also better finish .
Slab Cutting , is the next step , squared blocks from monolama are transferred to slab cutting section , where our multi-wire saw machines and gangsaw machines cut blocks into slabs , only a skillfully cut slab ensures a great countertop for your kitchen , that is why we use only top Italian stone machine brands for our monolama process .
Slab Polishing our 22 head fully automatic polishing line by Barsanti (Italy) has no match with conventionally used single head Chinese made polishing machines , after polishing the elegance of stones speaks for itself .
Other processes may also be performed on unpolished slabs , such as ;
Antique finish , Flaming , Bush hammering etc.
Tiles cutting the polished slabs are finally cut-to-size into tiles of 30×30 cm , 60×60 cm , 30x60cm etc or kitchen tops as per requirement of the project . This cutting is done on state-of-the-art Bridge Saw machine by Terzago ( Italy ) which ensures laser guided accuracy in leveling and angling of pieces .
