Travertine is a sedimentary metamorphic limestone.
It has a porous and cavernous structure and is presented with varied stratifications.
Travertine is a native material of the Tivoli neighborhood, in central Italy, (hence the name), but there are also deposits in Africa (Tunisia), East (Iran) and South America (Peru)
It has been used since ancient times for building materials such as the surfaces of decorations, cladding of facades and interior flooring, up to monuments, sculpture and architecture.
The color varies from white to milky walnut, through shades from yellow to red. Often there are fossil footprints of animals and plants.
Travertine is extracted from the quarry in blocks, which are sawn and prepared. Generally it is split with H-frame machines equipped with 4 blades in order to obtain straight splitting profile and guarantee an excellent quality of finish product, such as big cladding slabs.
The MEC P4 Series allows the efficient split of heavy travertine blocks. These machines are, in fact, automatic and equipped with four blades: a bottom, a top and two side blades. In this way the split power acts on the entire perimeter of the block, assuring a high quality finished product.
The FAST series machines for the processing of travertine fall under the cut of the stone category. The diamond blade cutters with four different systems allow a clean cut of the travertine veneers, reaching excellent results in terms of quality and productivity. You can choose by yourself how many spindles do you need for your business.
The Crunch Series as the Series Stark, falls in the travertine crushing stage. These machines for the travertine processing are equipped with horizontal axis free hammers and are made of entirely wear-resistant material. The finish product is the sand of travertine made from waste, that is not recoverable in other ways.
