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.
Have you ever wondered where all the stones used in the splitting constructions or in the architecture come from? Which is their origin? For example, which rock’s family does the granite belong to or how is it used after the splitting process?
