Block testing

We select and test marble blocks directly in the quarry. Upon specific request, the blocks that are best suited for the current project will be selected, in terms of size and quality. Testing the block represents an important and delicate phase because it allows us to evaluate and simulate how the pattern of the veins will develop in the slabs that will be cut.

The blocks that will prove up to specifications will be selected and carried to the sawmill for cutting. Any flaws detected will be corrected by carefully applying top-quality resins. The block will be then “jacketed”, that is, encased in a special netting holding the whole block together for optimal results.

Blocks marked as fit for sawing will be placed on the sawing bench and cut into the desired thickness. The slabs thus obtained will then be sent on to the next stage of the process.
