The Trends In Kitchen Countertop Fabrication
The process of kitchen countertop fabrication has not changed a lot since the time of the ancient Greeks and the only noticeable change is that the entire process has become more automated. The kitchen countertop fabrication implies huge stones being taken from the quarries, out of which marble and granite slabs are cut to use for various purposes. After they have been taken out, the marble and granite slabs are cut and polished to suit the needs of different customers. Although the idea of kitchen countertop fabrication and installation has not changed a lot, the equipment that people use has improved with the latest technology.
The kitchen countertop fabrication requires saws, polishers and routers to cut and polish the marble and granite countertops. The saw has different utilities in the kitchen countertop fabrication process starting with cutting of stones into slabs, for which one normally needs a diamond saw. Besides diamond saws there are also bridge saws that are used to cut the slabs into more specific shapes, such as for marble and granite countertops, flooring and mantels.
The polishers also have an integral role in the kitchen countertop fabrication because they sand down the surface to the texture that differs according to the customers' desire. The marble and granite slabs can be polished to a mirror finish from the course rock they once were but most modern polishers can produce a variety of finishes during the kitchen countertop fabrication process. The finishes that one can obtain include smooth, soft look, slick look and mirror finishes, which are also the most common. To polish the marble and granite slab rotating pads are the most common instruments to use in order to obtain the desired effect.
