Once a stone has been cut to size (Secondary Sawing) it may require further cutting and carving to produce the finished stone component. One of the options we use for finishing stone units is CNC Profiling. This involves the building of a 3D model of each finished stone and the creation of a set of instructions for the 5-Axis CNC saw to follow. Once programmed these saws will run automatically, changing the tools and self-calibrating to produce the finished unit. ... See MoreSee Less
