Slate processing machines

With its characteristic schistose texture and its ability to be divided into thin, uniform slabs, slate is widely used in a variety of applications, from roofing to hydrophobic cladding, from chalkboards to billiard tops, and as an elegant cladding solution for both interior and exterior use.

MEC’s slate processing machines greatly improve the efficiency of the process, ensuring precise cuts and minimizing waste while respecting the natural direction of the stone’s edge. This advanced technology also facilitates restoration projects, allowing for accurate processing that maintains the aesthetic integrity of historic buildings.
