The process of fabricating slate counter tops begins by sawing the blocks on a 7 1/2 foot diameter computerized monoblade saw from Park Industries, or our Pelligrini wire saw, which cuts them into slabs of a desired thickness. The slabs then move on to a 72 inch Sawing Systems diamond grinder which is used to calibrate the slabs into the required thicknesses. The slabs are then placed on the computerized slab polisher, and milled to the medium honed finish. A CNC Cemar gantry saw is used for sizing and edge work or sink cut outs are completed on the L-Tec CNC router. The final fit and finish are done by our skilled employees. We have not found any better method to achieve the finish that we want, than by the caring hands of our employees.
