New capabilities at revamped Hertfordshire Site
A new Intermac Five Axis CNC saw has also been acquired and is earning its keep alongside the exisiting machinery. A swing arm crane has recently been installed and construction of new Office space and a Showroom has also begun and will be completed in the coming months.
The Workshop space in the Hertfordshire hub is already receiving new projects, pictured here is the new CNC machine in action, cutting a kitchen basin and worktop section. MD Gary Walters says "We've had a great start to 2017. Development of our Hertfordshire site is well underway and the introduction of the new CNC machine is a welcome addition, enabling our talented masons to create an even greater range of intricate pieces with greater efficiency than before'. The saw is currently the largest Intermac CNC operating in the UK.
Like a 3D Printer for the Stone Industry, the CNC precision cuts the stone creating intricate bespoke pieces for a wide range of domestic and commercial projects. The Saw is wireless and CAM and CAD integrated. It is possible to accommodate stone slabs as large as 4060 mm x 2300 mm or create smaller detailed carving, sculpture and profile pieces to fit a range of project requirements.
Stone Age is adept at working with designers and architects who like to push the boundaries with stone. A recent commission for the team included a curved floor plate and a stunning 'dropstick' floor design for an entrance hall and cloakroom area.
