How marble and granite processing works


The processing of marble and granite is a complex and fascinating process that begins with the extraction of blocks directly from quarries. These precious materials are then transferred to the sawing department, where they start taking shape through a process called squaring.


Subsequently, the blocks undergo an accurate cutting process. Using specific industrial machinery, marble and granite blocks are then cut into slabs of various thicknesses, ready for subsequent processing stages. This step requires great accuracy and attention because each slab must maintain the integrity and beauty of the original material.


Granite, in particular, known for its hardness and durability, has a little longer cutting phase compared to marble, a factor to know for the processing of this material.


After cutting, both marble and granite undergo further processing, such as:


  • Resining: This is a crucial step in the processing of marble and granite, used to treat fragile slabs or those with imperfections. Through the application of a specific resin, this process improves both the structural strength and the aesthetics of the slab, filling in cracks and porosity and making the surface more uniform. After resining, the slab is ready for the final stages of polishing and finishing.





  • Polishing and honing: these two phases are crucial to give natural stone a glossy and refined appearance. These processes remove any remaining imperfections and prepare the slab for a wide range of applications. Honing makes the surface smooth, while polishing enhances its veins and color.





Given the importance of each phase in this process and the need for absolute precision, it becomes essential to rely on efficient and highly technological industrial machinery.


In this context, the solutions offered by Pedrini represent the ideal choice, combining technological innovation and reliability to ensure excellent results.
