Stone Splitting

Slabs of stone are brought into the manufacturing facility (aka the cut shop) to be cut by the splitter. The splitter is a large hydraulic press that breaks the stone sheets into pieces of the desired sizes and shapes. (While we’re talking shop: this process is also sometimes calledĀ snapping, chopping, or machine cutting.)

After the initial cut, we also use the splitter to trim any rough edges and perform basic touch-ups, in preparation for the quality check process.
