PRODUCTION

Many different activities are included in the productive cycle of stone materials, and these phases separate extraction of the material from its use in construction works:

 

EXTRACTION AND TRANSPORTATION

Extraction and Trasportation

After testing, purchase and extraction, the blocks are transported to SICC Marmi in Chiampo, where they are inspected, weighed and stored.

 

SQUARING OF THE BLOCK

riquadratura del blocco

The process of squaring, which is necessary if the block has an out of square shape, is performed at the company on single blade frames, for the purpose of maximising the potential of the successive phase of cutting.

 

CUTTING

segagione blocchi

During the phase of cutting it is possible to produce slabs of variable thickness, starting from a single block of marble, thanks to the use of single-blade frames set at different depths. The slabs produced in cutting are considered the "base product" although they are already characterised by a regular and homogeneous surface.

 

STORAGE

stoccaggio lastre

When they come off the multiple blade frame, the slabs are stored in the deposit and ordered according to the type of material, in the order of thickness. In the 4,000 m2 of "slab deposit", construction materials and coloured marbles for interior decorating are stored separately, in specific sectors.
