The legendary KORFMANN chain cutting machines, known for being the
world’s pioneer in quarrying marble and stone are now built in
Carrara, which is the largest area of marble quarry concentration in
the world. No other place could be more suitable for testing new
machines and technical innovations as here, so as to keep this
product constantly ahead in quality and competitiveness and always
ready to deal with any kind of quarry work.
In this way, the tradition of KORFMANN will continue by its come
back on the world market with a product which is the achievement of
years of experience, using the most up-dated components as well as
highly professional technological solutions.
The components used by KORFMANN still are unmatched: the highest
possible resistance to ware and tear is absolutely guaranteed. The
chain arm is now built using a special steel alloy which not only
makes it lighter but gives it much more working stress-resistance
than the previous one.
The “core” of this kind of machine is the reduction gear box. The
korfmann one is made in a single alloy cast box thus making it much
more robust, free from cast cracking and with more thrust power for
the chain arm itself.
KORFMANN has also further improved the world wide well known
robustness of its cutting chain by introducing a new bit-support
fixing system. The chain bit-supports may be equipped with cutting
tools made of tungsten carbide as “widia-bit” or by policristalline
such as “stratapax”. The first type of bit is suitable for cutting
stones of medium hardness while the latter is built to deal with
very hard and abrasive ones.
Another strong point in favour of KORFMANN chain machine are the
rails: these, as they are made of special reinforced steel,
eliminate easy deformation and free from machine positioning
problems even in extreme terrain conditions.
The prestigious name of KORFMANN products, well known all over the
world, are built using the best and most advanced technological
components which together with first class tools enable these
machines to work in the most hostile working sites and to operate
stone cutting even in the total absence of water.
All this, and KORFMANN’s long history dating back to 1880, helps us
to maintain our products to the highest quality standards.
