6-Axis CNC Machine
Posted on: November 17, 2019
Many modern stone cutting machines are 3-Axis or 5-Axis (and we have many of those!). Beyond the 5-Axis, we have now added a 6th Axis lathe which gives us the ability, for example, to carve 3-Dimensional sculptures from a single large block of stone.
It also increases the efficiency with which we can produce columns and balustrades (i.e. circular profiled stones). The geometric control and precision is powerful, making it easy to produce entasis (parabolic tapering geometry) into columns for Porticos and similar components.
In summary – we continue to invest in the most advanced and innovative cutting technology. In addition to the machinery, we also invest in the relevant training to make use of the technology efficiently.
