LIMESTONE

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.

MACHINES FOR LIMESTONE PROCESSING

Series C

The peculiarity of the Series C machines for limestone processing is identified in their blades, characterized by adjustable teeth. The gooseneck frame of these machines allows better positioning of the stone for the operators, making their work easier and better.

MDC Series

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.

P4 Series

The P4 series is characterized by the presence of side blades in addition to the traditional top and bottom ones.  In this way, the splitting power does the pressure on the entire perimeter of the limestone, obtaining a well-defined split product and a regular profile of the stone.

Half Series

The two horizontal blades of Half series machine are capable for horizontal opening of sawn limestone slabs in an automatic way, it is for obtaining two veneers, each with a split face.

Horizontal T1, Horizontal T2

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.

Beaver

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.
