Machines in the production of dimensional stone

Dimension stone is one of the most sustainable materials used in construction, cladding, paving and other applications. Epiroc offers drilling rigs for granite, limestone, marble and sandstone. Over the last 20 years, global production of dimension stone has grown rapidly, especially for building projects where architects are making increasing use of the wide variety of colors, textures and

    Dimension stone can be defined as natural rock material quarried for the purpose of obtaining blocks or slabs that meet specifications as to size (width, length, and thickness) and shape. Color, grain texture and pattern, and surface finish of the stone are normal requirements. Durability (essentially based on mineral composition and hardness

    Nov 30, 2010 The profitable production of dimension stone mainly depends on the extractable block size. The regularity and volume of the blocks are of critical importance, and are controlled by the three-dimensional pattern of the discontinuity system. Therefore, optimization of block size has to be the aim when quarrying for natural stone. This is mainly connected to the quantification of joints and

    A diamond wire has become a standard stone quarrying tool which enables high production rates and increased output of blocks that are used for monumental purposes in areas where flawed or fragile stone is quarried. Owing to its adaptability to suit most sawing tasks, it has also made rapid progress in stoneyards, where both single-wire and multi-wire stationary machines are increasingly used
