Stone is an interior decoration. To obtain the desired shape, the size is processed by texture processing of the material. Moreover, its appearance will be selected depending on the type of stone.
Types of stone processing, scope
The stone is originally a piece of rock that does not have a shape. To give shape, it is subjected to mechanical processing. After these procedures, it can be used for interior and exterior cladding. Stone-cutting equipment is used to process natural stone.
There are several types of processing:
cut. Slabs with specific dimensions are cut from blanks. After these actions, the surface of the stone will be rough, there are grooves on it. Sometimes irregularities can be up to 5 mm. The material will not slide. Steps, an entrance to the building, garden paths are laid out of it, and wall cladding is also performed. Different saws are involved (disc, band, wire). The slabs obtained as a result can be subjected to other types of processing and used for other tasks;
processing with grinding wheels. Here a more even and less rough surface is obtained, irregularities can be up to 0.5 mm. This treatment is relevant for breeds without a pronounced pattern. Most often, these stones have a light shade. Breeds that have an original color lose their attractiveness after processing. Plates after grinding are suitable for creating floors, platforms, stairs. The process can take place on conveyors or special machines;
