Thanks to specialist ADI, Surfaces Group is a leader in surface machining of natural and engineered stone
Stone, whether natural or artificial, is synonymous with luxury and fascination through its timeless charm, unchanged throughout the ages thanks to its characteristics that flawlessly combine sophisticated appeal with great eclecticism and practicality of use.
The techniques and equipment used to produce, machine and treat this noble material in its various forms, on the other hand, have significantly evolved.
While the popularity of this precious material in building and furnishing has never waned, the stone industry is now enjoying a newfound, additional impetus, driven by the demands of the luxury segment from countries experiencing strong economic expansion.
As a result, the market for abrasives and diamond tooling is constantly growing and changing, and Italy is among the world’s leading producers.
Surfaces Group is at the forefront also of natural and engineered stone surface machining thanks to Adi, Vincent and Luna Abrasivi. Industry experts that for over half a century have provided the most comprehensive range of products for the natural and engineered stone industry. They successfully anticipate market trends and support producers’ machining processes, offering high-quality solutions that optimise output.
Adi produces diamond tooling for slab grinding, cutting, squaring, drilling, profiling and finishing. With over 40 years of experience combined with a forward-looking and innovative approach, Adi offers a wide range of products for the stone industry that fulfil even the most demanding processing requirements. Innovations that guarantee high production speeds and the highest quality of the final product.
Customers worldwide can rely on the advice of technicians and product specialists with many years of experience on the most effective and beneficial solutions.
Vincent, boasting 50 years of experience and know-how in diamond tooling for natural and engineered stone processing, is an example of Italian excellence capable of meeting the highest requirements. Each material has its own particular hardness and abrasive properties and the tool, whether for cutting, grinding, polishing or profiling, must satisfy the different characteristics of the material, machine and application.
Vincent has established itself as a market leader in surface machining, from calibrating to grinding and polishing natural stone and quartz-resin agglomerates.
Luna Abrasivi has more than 30 years’ expertise in the development of tools and treatments for marble, granite and aggregate processing and finishing. It has expanded its technological expertise, innovating its range of tools to develop cutting-edge solutions that create novel textures for marble, granite and agglomerates. The brand-new fickerts guarantee unrivalled effects and performance, with perfectly polished, high-gloss surfaces or antiqued slabs and 3D textures with alternating polished and brushed/satin-finish parts.
Leading by example with its Green attitude, it uses renewable energy sources in addition to new technologies that enable eco-friendly production.
NoCoat is the benchmark for all chemical protection and polishing treatments combined with specific application tools. Moka-certified and VOC-free products for natural and engineered stone repair the surface, eliminate porosity, increase resistance to all the most invasive agents and improve protection and safety.
Surfaces Technological Abrasives has become the industry standard for end-of-line machining. Tools with high added value are designed using state-of-the-art technology for lapping, satin finishing and polishing gres, stone, marble and agglomerates.
Surfaces Group brings together Italy’s best surface machining companies.
The stone division is divided into:
- FAB/LAB an organisation dedicated to slab machining.
- PLANT an organisation targeting large industrial stone production plants.
Surfaces Group offers exclusive solutions for Natural and Engineered Stone surface machining through its brands Adi and Vincent.
The standard range therefore includes products for both monumental and complex machining operations such as 5-axis machining centres to develop 3D components and also kitchen worktops, with saw blades, stubbing wheels for routing, drum wheels for machining flush top grooves, as well as profiling and polishing wheels.
