The Menhir range of splitting machines are mainly used as a primary machine in a splitting line producing semi-finished split stone or for the production of finished products such as large kerb stones and wall stones. Menhir machines are used to split granite, limestone, sandstone, slate, porphyry and many other types of natural monolith stone.
These rugged machines are used to split both raw material and sawn slabs. The non-sawn stone includes stone quarried in blocks or very irregular natural stone quarried using explosives. They are equipped with highly adaptable blades and designed with a pivoting blade head to make splitting irregular material efficient, giving a high quality split surface finish and reducing waste to a minimum. Each machine is equipped with a low noise, high-efficiency hydraulic and power unit. The hydraulic unit has several pump configuration options, including the possibility to adjust the speed at which the machine blade begins to apply pressure to the stone, namely any “ramp” or pressure plane for subsequent splitting operations. By being able to set these splitting parameters our customers can optimize the quality of the split face based on the properties of their material.
The Menhir splitting machines come with an extensive range of options including conveyors, loaders, manipulators, remote control consoles and different hydraulic configurations depending on the customers requirements.
