Here's the second new addition to our production line-up... our GMM Brio CNC Bridge Saw.

The Brio is a little smaller than our new Giga, with a maximum blade diameter of 625mm (compared to the Giga's 3500mm blade), making it the ideal saw for some of our more intricate profiling work. The Brio can be operated both manually and automatically too, meaning that it will still be hard at work long after we've gone home for the night!

Here's the first of two new additions already installed in our factory this year... our brand new GMM Stone Machinery Giga 3500 from Roccia Machinery Ltd is definitely made to impress!

With a maximum blade size of 3.5 metres this is sure to make light work of even the biggest natural stone quarry blocks we handle, and we're already seeing a big increase in our production output just in time for what looks to be a busy 2024 for our team!

Okay... maybe digital radio isn't really our thing, although going by the hits on our website this morning maybe there's a bigger market for it that we thought!

Happy April Fools Day!

At Cumbrian Stone we do far more than just cut and supply stone for our customers... did you know that all of our high quality natural stones are fully tested by an independent accredited laboratory, and that we then check and monitor the ongoing performance of each of our stones in our in-house lab so that we can guarantee that the performance of our materials remains consistent with the accredited results we declare to architects and specifiers.

As standard, we carry out over 300 individual tests on samples taken from our production line every month, including checks for density, porosity, water absorption, slip resistance, compressive strength and exposure to extreme temperatures (both hot and cold).

We also carry out a careful analysis of each sample we take, quite literally "putting our products under the microscope", to ensure the mineral composition hasn't changed significantly over the years, as this can have a big impact on the material performance.

If you'd like to know more about our in-house stone testing facilities and the importance of accurate and up to date performance data when working with natural stone then please get in touch with our team.

This is fantastic - we recently ran a training event on how to use AI in marketing. It's great to see a local business investing in tech like this. Would you fancy doing a video interview with us about the business and this new initiative?
