Margraf realizes any stone work with Shapemill
20 January, 2014
The history of Margraf– formerly Industria Marmi Vicentini – started in 1906 in Chiampo, a town in the Province of Vicenza.
Right from the start the company focused on research and technological innovation and, in particular, on the close cooperation with renowned international architects.
Today, after more than 100 years, Margraf rightly joins the world leaders of the stone sector.
Masterly quarrying marble blocks from their own deposits to cut them into polished slabs or tiles and offering a wide range of highly valued material and top-of-the-range products for the construction industry and architecture (from interior to external cladding, up to furnishing complements for bathrooms and kitchens), are just some of the features that made Margraf a well-known and highly appreciated company worldwide.
However, all this did not prevent Margraf from staying focused on the respect for the environment, on the contrary the company invested in many facilities which reduce any environmental damage: most innovative technologies, projects for landscape recovery, strong investments in energy saving and renewable resources.
Past and present merge perfectly in Margraf, a leading company rushing into the future with enthusiasm.
In 2009, Margraf purchased a Shapemillmachining centre with 5 interpolated axes, equipped with a work bench of 5.500x3.500 mm and a lathe for making columns of 800 mm (Ø) x 3.200 mm (length).
Key success factors of 5-axis machining Shapemill centre
