Durable Stone Processing Equipment

  • In the case of stone, the split face is desirable as it provides natural texture and stratification that is hard to duplicate outside of nature. Let’s take a closer look at how manufacturers achieve the split face look and why it can be a desirable finish.

    Natural stone is most often quarried in large pieces and then worked down through various means into the sizes and finishes desired. Primary and secondary cuts are most often made using band style diamond wire saws. Mechanical processing for the finish side of the stone will include the use of stone processing equipment designed to break the stone along its natural cleavage lines, which creates the split face stone look that we are discussing today. Large mechanical polishers, grinders, tumblers, specialty saws, and even bush-hammer machines are examples of other equipment stone manufactures can use to create
