Polished to Perfection

Our newest piece of equipment in our granite shop is the Marmo Meccanica LCV 711, a fully automatic straight vertical edge stone polishing machine. This machine can polish straight flat-squared stone, or engineered stone edges at over 120 linear feet per hour. Stone pieces are loaded onto the device and move past a series of 7 polishing motors and come out finished. What used to take several workers can now be handled by a few! The LCV 711 requires no further intervention to oversee the operation once it is set, and allows the operator to do other jobs. The material transported through the machine in such a method that guarantees its stability. Reducing the amount of handling of the stone will lead to a decrease in the amount of material breakage and damage as well.
