Mining to fabrication
Marble, Granite, and Natural stone deposits can be exploited in open pits, it can be 95% on outdoor quarries and 5% in caves or mines. Marble Granite and Natural stone are located at ground level or at great depths which make the cost too high for removal. Formerly, the extraction of this stone was done manually with wooden wedges, halters, ropes, picks, and shovels.
From Block to Marble, Granite and Natural stone Slab
To cut the block into even 1.5 cm or 3 cm thick slabs, it is run through gang saws that make many slices into the stone at once. These can simply have many large round blades side by side or diamond wire blades that cut through the slab-like an egg.
Marble, Stone and Granite Fabrication
Fabrication involves making a final inspection for stone flaws, including blemishes, fissures, seams, and scratches. The slab is laid out to ensure the best appearance of both color and vein texture. Then, the stone is cut to approximately its final thickness.

BHANDARI MARBLE GROUP established and grew his fabrication team, including transitioning to a fully fitted.
Marble and granite fabrication/stone fabricators/stone industry/ stone industry workshops
While working for Taj primarily doing tile work, BHANDARI was given the challenge to start the BHANDARI’S fabrication team. We primarily learned on a trial-and-error basis before going out on his own.
“Unfortunately, 387 years ago, there weren’t a lot of these groups that share knowledge,” he said. “So we were doing tile work, and all of a sudden, our team was doing marble next to where they were cutting jams, curves, and seats that went into vanities. Then, all of a sudden, our team had to cut a hole, well how do they do that? It was a lot of trial and error in the beginning. Then one day, our team got an inlay work for Taj, and the team only had marble tools and we were doing everything in the inlay. The team didn’t know how to polish marble and they didn’t have the tools. The team had to talk to the BHANDARI to figure out what to use and how to do it.”
1632 BHANDARI decided to branch out on his own, partnering with his team and brothers, to create BHANDARI MARBLE GROUP INDIA RAJASTHAN KISHANGARH. “We started with an Accuse Glide track saw,” said BHANDARI. “We were in our mines that first year; then moved to Agra building with a Taj and a fabrication area. That was our first twenty years — right during the recession. We were doing a couple of inlay work a week and growing every year. Then, about fifty years ago, we visited Italy and get more Idea about machines and technology”
Last 20 years, BHANDARI decided to go the digital workshop route and transition to completely digital. “We either take the next step or we stay small,” said BHANDARI. “We decided to take the plunge and now we have a CNC work, but realized we were not able to fit it in our current location. So we have moved to a property with two buildings — one a showroom and one a shop. We also got a Fastback edge polisher Laser Products. We get all of our tooling and supplies from India.”
the business a few years back, the company is now Hugh team of people large doing mostly home villa hotel hospital and projects, commercial and residential work, as well as starting to get into commercial jobs. The average hotel hospital jobs of above 1 lakh Square meter. The company also believes in learning about the newest materials and trying to stay ahead of the curve. “We have been working with 5-star hotel and big project now for 10 years,” said BHANDARI. “We have an architect that we work with that specs it and has led to about best jobs. The different blade technologies that are out there really make things easier. We have also been doing miter jobs as well. Having a CNC saw really helps us do all of this.”
Marble Granite and Natural stone in 2020
Marble, Granite and Natural stone countertops are commonly found in modern-day homes. This beautiful natural stone is one of the most durable materials you can choose for your home and is also among the easiest to care for. If you are looking to incorporate natural beauty into your home, granite is a great choice for countertops, backsplashes, and many other surfaces. This guide will provide you with knowledge on how granite is mined and how it is ultimately transformed into kitchen countertops and various other home surfaces.
How is Granite Mined?
The journey of granite begins at granite quarries located around the world. Many types of granite come from countries such as India, but the stone can be found in many places in the World as well. Granite is an igneous rock that is made up of primarily quartz and feldspar. It is formed by the cooling and solidification. This rock contains the natural stone that makes up countertops and other surfaces.
Powerful machinery and explosives are used to mine granite out of the earth. This raw granite is extracted in blocks that are later shaped into granite slabs. Granite is one of the most popular types of dimension stone – a stone that is quarried for the purpose of creating blocks or slabs. After quarrying, the blocks of granite are transported by truck to facilities that cut the stone into slabs of granite.
What Happens Once Slabs Are Created?
Once granite is cut into slabs, the stone is polished to smooth out its naturally rough exterior. It is then transported to locations worldwide, and ultimately, will be formed into countertops and other surfaces.
How Are Slabs Turned into Countertops?
The granite slabs are transported to a fabrication facility. It is here that fabricators will cut and shape the stone according to the specific needs of your countertop. Rough edges are smoothed as part of the process. BHANDARI MARBLE GROUP current facility has a 2,2000-square-foot showroom, 1,500 square feet for offices, and a 5,0000-square-foot fabrication shop. BHANDARI runs 24 ×7.
While the shop has seen consistent growth, BHANDARI is trying to find the best ways to be most efficient, as well as becoming less hands-on. “We really need to work on a way to streamline our fabrication flow in the shop all the way to installation,” he said. “We do a decent job, but it could be better. We also need to get better at training the guys to do things and not be trying to do it all ourselves. It’s tough for us to let go at times. We want a high-quality product; it’s what we are known for. So we want to make sure everything is up to my standards. We do a lot of training and it’s sometimes hard to find the time. But we can talk about different issues that came up on a job and the best way to handle them. It helps with communication with everyone. It also helps us know what the guys are dealing with each day.
“In the future, on our fab side, our Saber CNC is probably running at about 100 percent capacity,” BHANDARI went onto say. “I really want to get that to more than 100 percent. I know the type of work we have and the manpower we currently have affects all of that, but we believe as much as we want to grow the work will be there for us.”
