As CNC machinery for stone fabrication continues to advance, it is necessary for the tooling and accessories needed for these machines to improve technologically as well. Manufacturers are working closely with machinery manufacturers to be compatible with stone-cutting equipment.
Recognized for their high-quality, pre-colored, cartridge-based adhesives — that offer a perfect color match when laminating, mitering and seaming quartz, natural stone, ceramic and solid surface — Integra Adhesives has launched a unique Silicone line color matched for the surfacing industry.
Rey Matos, head of technical training in North America for Neolith, talked to Stone World about the trends he is currently seeing in the industry in regards to Neolith, as well as some advice to help fabricators to learn how to cut the material.
With exotic stones such as quartzite continuing to grow in popularity among the design community and homeowners alike, stone producers in countries such as Brazil and Peru exhaust efforts to find new varieties of material to satisfy customer demands.
Robotic integration is changing the way stone fabricators are looking at production. No longer are robotics limited to only cutting or moving materials. A fully automated production system, suitable for all machining processes in the stone workshop, is now a reality.
With safety ranking as a top priority in stone fabrication shops, manufacturers of material handling equipment continually evolve their product. The following is a look at some of the latest product introductions for moving stone slabs efficiently and safely around the shop.
For this issue of Stone World magazine we talk to Polycor about the use of Limestone in the Louis Vuitton Foundation building. Also with limestone we spoke to Buechel Stone about the Pray Stone limestone quarry. We also put together a product roundup of some of the CNC tools and accessories available today.
For this issue of Contemporary Stone & Tile Design we focus on the current quartz trends and the use of quartz in a modern farmhouse. Also, learn about how natural stone is used to blend nature and exterior architecture!
