How Is Granite Cut At The Quarry? (Shelby Township, MI)

Once the granite is removed from the earth, it needs to be cut to size accordingly. This is typically done with wire saws that are often treated with a varying range of abrasives from sand to aluminum oxide to diamond, along with water which acts as a coolant. Other types of cutting devices are often used in tandem, or in the absence of, these wire saws. Water jet cutting, for example, uses a focused, high-pressure stream to cut stone along specified cutting lines. Once it has been established that the granite blocks are to be used for countertops and tile, they are cut and polished into the familiar forms for these purposes. The granite tile and slabs are calibrated to ensure that the thickness of the granite is uniform and gauged to make sure that they are square; tiles are beveled to produce their smooth edges. Once this part of the process is completed, they are ready for your project. According to builddirect.com
