Premium Custom Countertops

Initial fabrication process – slicing blocks into slabs

Rocks quarried from the earth are divided into blocks and transported to fabrication centers. There the blocks are sliced into slabs using block saw. Industrial quality diamonds studded in metal wire saws are also used to cut the rocks into blocks.

Slabs into countertops and tiles

Based on customers’ requirements slabs are shaped into countertops or sinks using bridge saw, and given a final touch by polishing.

Automated fabrication machines

Recently, many businesses have been found to use CNC routers and machineries for fastening the fabrication process. In these processes, robots handle everything starting from block movements, slicing into slabs, to finished natural stone countertops and surfaces required for home and office purposes.

A water cooling system helps prevent heating of the stone during cutting and polishing process. Edging as per customers’ specifications completes the fabrication process.

Following are the stone fabrication tips for best results:

• Avoid vibrations and prevent damage to the slab during the cutting process by clamping it near the cutting line

• As the slab already comes with right polish and finish, redoing it can spoil the surface

• Cut long slabs lengthwise first and then widthwise, not vice versa

• While cutting thick slabs or distorted ones, cut half their thickness from opposite sides

• Follow a standard of 1.5 mm radius for external and 6 mm for internal corners

• L-shaped countertops do not need rounding

• Avoid seams or cut edges near corners as they are vulnerable

• Use enough water to prevent dust and heat during cutting or polishing the tiles
