SAUDI ARABIA - A new plant for the production of modular granite tiles has been started by Yamama Granite & Marble, a large stone manufacturer located in Saudi Arabia.
Investments include three “Arco Di Trionfo” multi-blade cutting centers from Pedrini, along with one finishing line for polishing and cutting modular granite elements to size. The Pedrini Arco Di Trionfo simultaneously operates vertical and horizontal cut/unloading operations on different blocks. The resulting strips are then delivered to the dedicated finishing line.
Pedrini reports that the new technology has been engineered to obtain a low cutting cost per square foot, high productivity and the potential to process small blocks.
