Granite Fabrication Technology Installation Unique To Arkansas

This high technology package comprised of computerized image capture and management along with precision-built machinery takes the fabrication of granite to a whole new level at Benton, Arkansas-based Arkansas Granite & More - an AIA Arkansas Silver Ribbon Co-Sponsor.

Founded by a professional with more than 35 years experience in the granite industry, Bobby McElroy, this platform utilizes knowledge acquired over the years to build a "dream" facility that simplifies complex granite fabrication processes, helps eliminate waste, and speeds production times.

When a slab of granite is received, it is photographed on the Pathfinder® 1200 digital photo station and a bar code is generated for inventory management.

The incredibly high quality image captures every vein and subtle variant of each slab. Color printouts are available that perfectly represent the end result appearance. Once a specific job is digitized and measurements acquired, CAD files are created to show seam placement and overhangs, sink cut-outs and similar features that determine cutting patterns. These files are then loaded into the Fusion® 4000 system that guides the powerful CNC saw/Waterjet apparatus through perfectly straight cuts and any radius required.
