Where technology meets craftsmanship
Stoneworld’s major investment in the Robostone™ series of advanced natural stone processing technologies offers a quicker, more cost-effective option for masonry and architectural projects over traditional methods.
The technology we have in our digital stone carving robot enables us to take a 3-D image of any object, manipulate that image, and produce a natural stone copy; once or a hundred times!
Services we offer include archiving, reproduction, restoration and creation. Any object, sculpture or feature, however complex, can be digitally captured and either archived or carved in natural stone on the robot. The benefit of the service over a traditional masonry solution is speed, accuracy and cost. All carving is conducted in our own Oxfordshire factory on site, reducing shipping costs.
StoneGenie™ digital stone carving services include:
- Production Templating Service – scanning to create templates for production items such as vanity units and worktops. These templates can then be used in the Production and Finishing service.
- Archive Imaging and Storage – detailed 3-D digital image recording of any features or artefacts for archiving and/or reproduction
- Pre-production Digital Sculpting – using a scanned 3-D digital image and morphing software to recreate a damaged artefact or to create a new sculpture
- Production and Finishing – commanding a multi-axis (up to 7) stone carving robot to accurately and quickly carve from the digital image.
