Marmo+mac, the world’s most important trade fair for the stone industry, has just ended with results exceeding expectations.
At the combined stand of GMM, Bavelloni, Techni Waterjet, visitors coming from all over the world, especially from Europe and the Middle East, were able to appreciate the variety of the offerings covering the needs of any fabrication shop. As reports Federico Bassi (Partner, Bavelloni SpA), “The show was a success in terms of the audience and the negotiations generated, which reached pre-covid levels.”
Reflecting new trends in the architectural and furnishing sectors, there was also growing interest in the processing of ceramic, synthetic and engineered materials, which are becoming more and more popular, compared to natural stone, for their unique features: repeatability of pattern and colour, greater availability and, last but not least, availability in large formats.
Bavelloni, on this occasion, exhibited some of the most representative machinery in our range: a NC machining centre and a VE ST Series straight-line edger which performed live demonstrations throughout the entire event.
Bavelloni’s StoneNRG centres, suitable for processing natural and engineered stone, are available in 3 models depending on the maximum workable dimensions. The StoneNRG 330 Series – represented at the fair by the StoneNRG 330 TPJ model – includes various configurations (3- or 4-axes, with tilting B-axis, with increased Z-axis) and features unique solutions and a wide range of aggregates.
Bavelloni’s VE 350 4 ST vertical edger was also highly appreciated. This machine delivers raw grinding at 46° for perfect coupling by gluing of both strips and large slabs, an application typical of the production of kitchen tops and stairs.
Although not exhibited at the show, visitors were also particularly keen on the automatic handling and on the cutting solutions for ceramic materials. In particular, the Bavelloni REV 372 ST cutting table, suitable for performing straight and shaped cuts on porcelain and ceramic materials met with great interest.
