How does granite cutting work?

Granite is one of the most valued materials by interior design professionals, thanks to its natural beauty and durability. However, this material also presents challenges that should not be underestimated during processing. In this article, we'll explore how granite cutting works, the difficulties it entails, and how Pedrini's innovation can make this process precise and efficient.

In this article, we'll cover:




The challenges of granite cutting


Granite is one of the most revered materials in the natural stone industry, known for its toughness, variety of colors, and unique textures.


In particular, the hardness of granite, while a sought-after quality for applications requiring durable and resilient materials, poses the main challenge in its cutting process. Additionally, the variability of its structure, with veins varying from one block to another, necessitates a highly personalized and flexible approach during cutting to adapt to the specificities of each individual block.


To overcome these challenges and proceed with granite cutting safely and efficiently, it is essential to rely on advanced technologies and high-precision machinery.


Multiwire machines enable clean and precise cuts, preserving the integrity of the material and ensuring slabs of uniform thickness.


Moreover, the use of these advanced tools not only improves the efficiency of the cutting process but also helps minimize material wastage, contributing to a more sustainable production.

How granite cutting works


To cut granite blocks precisely and uniformly, it's essential to rely on the advanced capabilities of multiwire machines.


These machines perform block cutting using a series of diamond wires for the industrial production of granite slabs in various sizes. With multiwire machines, it's possible to simultaneously produce slabs of different thicknesses.


The process begins with the accurate positioning of the granite block on the machine's block-carrying trolley. At this point, following the detailed project specifications, including the cutting speed and start and end cutting settings, the computerized control system takes command, guiding the machine in the cutting process. This precision technology ensures that each cut is made with millimeter accuracy, guaranteeing high-quality results without material wastage.


Thanks to the high technological level of these machines, granite cutting has become a highly efficient process that maintains the integrity and natural beauty of the material, meeting the growing demands of the market.
