Thin stone in free form

Stone, flexible like paper - and the variety of shapes is almost unlimited. Even hard stone can be bent up to a thickness of 1.0 mm. The successful realization of such projects requires a special degree of cooperation and exchange. The many years of experience of our partners in the automotive industry guarantee a perfect realization. In the end, every piece produced is unique.

Free forms I

Thin stones in combination with a fine metal plate - the pictures give a first impression what can be possible.

In principle, our entire range of thin stones is suitable for this type of application. However, the stone will always have a thickness of well under one millimeter. Depending on the stone, slight fracture lines may also be visible. It is therefore important to have a detailed exchange with the customer right from the start. Sounding out what is achievable fascinates and motivates us again and again.

A thin aluminum plate as a carrier material can be found in different variations in the product group thin stone - lightweight construction. Aluminium, whether as a plate or as a honeycomb structure, is also an exceptionally good combination for applications in the field of lightweight construction.

Free forms II

A motorcycle helmet or elements from the automobile industry covered with a stone veneer. One of the most difficult things we have done so far.

The choice of possible stones for this extreme form of processing is much more limited than for the other free forms. However, we would be happy to assist you in finding the perfect stone for one of the illustrated or similar applications.

One more note on the treatment of the stone surface in the samples shown under freeforms II. Here, the actual surface was not directly polished or otherwise processed, but was covered with several layers of coating. This is so desired by our customers in the automotive industry, although the haptic of the stone surface is lost in the process.

Free forms III

A handrail or part of a window frame covered with stone? Everything already successfully implemented!

In principle, our entire range of thin stones is suitable for this type of application. However, the stone will always have a thickness of well under one millimeter, especially with these very tight radii. Depending on the stone, slight fracture lines may also be visible, which can be partially laminated depending on the processing of the stone surface. It is therefore important to have a detailed exchange with the customer right from the start. Sounding out what is achievable fascinates and motivates us again and again.

The pictures of this product group show you which radii can be achieved with a stone veneer. In addition, the cladded window frame shows that we are able to align the thin stones exactly to their grain during processing and thus achieve a continuous appearance.

Free forms IX

Thin stones in combination with a fine metal panel - more pictures showing the possibilities.

In principle, our entire range of thin stones is suitable for this type of application. However, the stone will always have a thickness of well under one millimeter. Depending on the stone, slight fracture lines may also be visible. It is therefore important to have a detailed exchange with the customer right from the start. Sounding out what is achievable fascinates and motivates, but also demands clear information about the requirement profile.

In the illustration with the Labrador Blue Pearl we show you a sample with a rounding where the stone veneer is compressed. To solve this cleanly is a special challenge.
