MEC has revolutionized the stone industry with its automatic splitters, but we understand that there are times when you’ll need a manual splitter. Below, we’ve outlined the benefits and differences of each along with models you should know about.
Manual stone splitters
Manual splitters allow you to decide exactly when and how to split your stone. They’re designed to split irregular stone and can work in quarries or stone processing factories.
There are closed and open-frame designs of manual splitters.
Examples of manual stone splitters:
Splits in one step
Chisels mechanically align as the split is being made
Uniform splitting power across the entire stone
Works on more kinds of stone and more surfaces than any other machine
Fast manual splitting
The operator can make adjustments directly in front of the working table
Automatic splitters do just what their name suggests - they automatically split stones. They’re designed for high-volume systems such as an automatic loading and unloading system or a palletizing system.
Automatic splitters have closed frame designs and are used on regular or sawn blocks or strips.
Examples of automatic stone splitters:
Small automatic system
Splits strips or long slice materials
Built to obtain veneers, small tiles, and cobblestones
Recovers waste from the stone cutting
Very short cycle times and high levels of production
A PX, H frame machine machine with full automation added
Configured with conveyors and sensors to operate faster and more independently than anything else available
Can operate at high rates of speed and with fewer operators
Layout of the lines can be very flexible with 90 degree turns and pushers to automatically feed slaved machines along the line
