3. What types of Stone Tumbling Machine do you have?
When it comes to material refining and surface polishing, Inovatec has the perfect two solutions with unlimited possibilities.
We have vibratory finishing machines and the shot blasting method to get the perfect results.
At the heart of a vibratory machine, there is an out of balance motor. It’s the imbalance of the motor that causes the tub to vibrate and turn the stone in a perfect circle.
There are big slabs incorporated with abrasive ceramic media manufactured in the Inovtec factories. The workpieces get rounded and have an uneven texture (antique look) as a result of the process. Water plays the role of a lubricant during the process.
Our machines are tested under heavy monitoring.
Other than the machines themselves, we also offer a wide range of accessories like shotblasting media and ceramic abrasive chips.
Our solutions are specifically crafted to match both the customers and the market need.
Tub Vibrators: Using tub vibrators is essential to treat large and thin-walled slabs. These tubs are also perfect for other big parts like columns.
Round Vibrators: If you’re looking for an all-in-one solution for your stone tumbling needs, this round vibrator could be a perfect choice. It has a massive capacity of up to 2600 liters which is tremendous. You can treat anything from small mosaic to large concrete slabs. These machines are a breeze to operate. You can even use parts as media to get the parts of parts action.
Continuous Flow Systems: To get maximum profit out of your system, you need to get a continuous flow system. It’s perfect for slabs and paving stones of large quantities. The process is fully automated thanks to the programmed controls.
Shotblasting Systems: Shotblasting is used to get the rough texture of the stone. The surface becomes non-slippery.
We have dedicated testing centers for you to test the process.
4. What types of stone can we process in stone tumbling machine?
Slab: Slabs are encapsulated in the ceramic abrasive media. As a result, the slabs get an antique look.
Paving Stones: Using paving stones is one of the most cost-effective solutions when it comes to stone tumbling. Paving stones rub against new stones and they round each other. It’s cost-effective because there is no shortage of used paving stones. The stones are laid easily and they’re entirely treated.
Concrete Stones and Slabs: These are treated with abrasives such as the ceramic high cutting media
Marble Granite Sandstone Limestone Concrete Blocks Tiles Ceramic Glass
