Yamama Granite & Marble now has a production capacity of nearly 1.1 million square feet of granite tiles per month, one-third of which will be produced with new equipment from Pedrini of Italy, according to the company.

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.
