Sandstone Cutting

 Description


Sandstone is a porous, hard but brittle stone. This is sedimentary rock. According to thickness of block, blades get set into gang saw diamond machine.

Blocks quarry: Sandstone mines in the quarry. Blocks of sandstone are not at least in fine shape, because it quarries by drill saw. Wire saw not used in sandstone quarrying hence it has no particular shape blocks.

Dressing: Dressing is very important phase of cutting. It dress the blocks into almost shape before cutting through disk cutter machine.

Cutting through disk cutter: Sandstone blocks from quarry have no large size. So disk cutter can be use for cutting. As much thickness is high, would be best cut by disk cutter. Sandstone also requires water while cutting. Sandstone doesn't need accuracy cutting and even it is not possible due to disk cutter cutting. Such as if you want 5'' block than it is not possible to get accurate 5"block. It would be something around 6" or 4".

Manual cutting: For small blocks or pieces manual cutting can be done. It can process by hammer and chisel and some other hand cutting tools.

Blocks quarrying process: Sandstone quarrying is process of extracting blocks and rough material from the quarry. This process held through the drill machine. There is no need to use gang saw or wire saw because Sandstone forms in …layer coating form.

Dressing: Dressing is essential process before final cutting because Sandstone quarries by drill machine so blocks have no particular shape. In dressing process, blocks are dressed as about to cutting blocks.

Cutting through disk cutter: Sandstone blocks from quarry have no very large size. So disk cutter can be use for cutting. As much thickness of the Sandstone is high, cutting will be best. Sandstone also requires water while cutting. It doesn't need accuracy cutting and even not possible to cut accurate due to disk cutter cutting. Such as if you want 5'' block than it is not possible to get accurate 5"block. It would be something around 6" or 4".

Wheel cutter: Sandstone can also process done through wheel cutter. A grinding wheel is a dispensable wheel used for abrasive and annoying cutting process. Grinding wheel made up of solid steel or aluminum disc which bended to the surface and with solid, fix, cross and circular rounded shaped section are option as per wheel usage.

Manual cutting: Sandstone is soft stone hence the manual cutting can be done on small blocks or pieces. Manual cutting is done through hammer and chisel. Manual cutting provides smooth and regular edge.
