MEC is not limited to design and build machines for splitting and cutting of the stone and concrete, but moves on with its evolution, dedicating an entire range of machines for finishing. There were developed the machines for pitching of sawn strips, making them the effect of rustic stone, split, while maintaining a suitable thickness for laying on interior or exterior wall coverings.
Natural stone was the first material used by man for his constructions. It has been around for millions of years and has extraordinary characteristics of strength, compactness and durability. There are many works that testify to its use and resistance over time: the Egyptian Pyramids, the monolithic structures of Stonehenge, the Colosseum in Rome, the many cathedrals scattered around the world and so on. For these very characteristics, the natural stone has taken on magical meanings and unique properties over time and in society.
Do you need to recover the remaining waste from stone transformation laboratories or after the stone processing, but you don’t know who to ask? With Mec you find what you’re looking for. In addition to the design and construction of splitting and cutting plants, Mec offers also single machine and complete lines for the crushing and selection of aggregates which integrate the splitting cycle of the stone, by giving value to the by-product which will be treated as waste.
The correct recovery and disposal of waste resulting from construction and demolition activities plays a fundamental role in the protection of the environment and in the control of the territory.
Nowadays there are many materials that can be used to cover and decorate our houses. Among many materials, stone still holds the record because it gives the home a better appearance.
When we reflect on the stone splitting and its processing, we should never forget the fact that we are moving quintals of heterogeneous material of different shapes. This is why it’s clear that starting from a certain size and weight, it’s necessary to use a mechanical stone handling system, feeding in this way with continuity and regularity both the single machine and a combined series of machines, increasing significantly the productivity. Thanks to this solution, the operator, who has an irreplaceable control function, does not have to manually move the input material, saving risk and time and reducing considerably the physical effort.
As time goes on, outdoor and indoor coverings evolve and acquire new elements that offer new choices. There are always new and innovative solutions. Cladding is one of the most appreciated aesthetic solutions for coverings as it represents an evolution of stone processing, which affords a rustic and yet modern combination. Starting from a classic element, and creating an aesthetically pleasingly envelope is accomplished with these new applications.
Humans have always needed to reduce the stone into usable dimensions and volumes, both to defend, isolate and protect themselves and to create the works that the works that history, art, architecture and sculpture have handed down to us until today.
Mec offers a wide range of products for automatic stone splitting; those are configurable with size both in handling systems and in splitting power. According to the production requirements of the customer, the proposals may vary from smaller lines, i.e. Semiautomatic systems, to fully automated and customized solutions.
The floors in natural stone both for exteriors and interiors have been part of our tradition for a very long time. Just think about how much our subsoil is rich in hard stones, like marble and granite, as well as sedimentary rocks, like quartzite and sandstone. And let's not forget also about concrete, a valid alternative to natural stone.
