Limestone is a sedimentary rock with it’s main component being a carbonate. Its composition varies greatly depending on the formation conditions: often times during it’s formatting, there are living organisms involved, whose traces remain trapped in the rock structure. The stone often also presents stratifications and more compact rocky outcrops.
The split limestone is widely used in flooring, as a building stone and for coverings.
The limestone comes from quarry extraction in fairly regular blocks, not necessarily sawn at a later time. It can be split on manual machines in irregular form, or on automatic machines if it has been previously sawn. Depending on its composition, it may require different splitting power and blades in order to obtain a high quality finish product.
The machines for the limestone processing of MDC Series represent the ideal solution to ensure the finishing of stone before laying. One of their main benefit is the fact of being particularly light and handy enough, so it is possible to transport these machines with the pickups and trucks.
The limestone can also be processed effectively with MEC horizontal pitching machines. In particular, the Horizontal T1 is an automatic machine equipped with a chisel head, able to dress the strips, obtaining a rustic surface. For increased productivity there is a Horizontal T2.
The fairly regular blocks of limestone blend well with the features of Beaver machine. This fully automatic system allows the precise splitting of regular stones on edges, as, indeed, the limestone. The view of the product installation will be as a rustic material, suitable for different contexts.
