The largest slate mine of
the world - "La Fraguiña in Spain.
  Opencast mining in the quarry   The fully mechanised sawing mining
facilitates the work for the employees
above and below ground and contributes
to careful handling of the precious rock.   


Extracting

Extracting   Extracting   Large off-road trucks take the slate blocks with their weights up to 8 tonnes to the above-ground production.

Sawing

Sawing   Sawing   Having arrived in the production hall it is the first additional step in production. The modern sawing installations are controlled by machines. Out of the large blocks they saw manageable small blocks. Depending on which cap stone format is being produced the block is given a different size and form in order to keep the degree of application as high as possible.


Splitting

Splitting   Splitting   In Germany the slate is roofed with a thickness of 4 - 6 mm, for France, for example, it is only 3 mm thick. At the same time the splitter has to take into consideration the different splitting thicknesses for the different markets.
         
After sawing, the blocks are taken to the individual workplaces of the splitters.   The splitting of the blocks is carried out manually with hammer and froe.
   

Trimming

Trimming   Trimming   InterSIN ® is shaped mechanically for various types of roofing. For example for the various rectangular types of roofing, the fish scale type and various types of roofing developed by Rathscheck. On account of the mechanical shaping every cap stone has the same shape and one talks about "template roofing".

Quality
