Breton Shapemill of MARGRAF shapes an amazing Corinthian capital


 

After the modillion and the "peach blossom" marble column, Shapemill CNC milling center shapes an elegant Corinthian capital and amazes for its flexibility and reliability.

This interpolated five-axis machine with fixed bench allows you to perform multiple operations without the use of additional tools, ensuring accurate results with low machining times.


A GREAT MACHINE FOR A GREAT COMPANY


The capital was built for Margraf (originally called Industria Marmi Vicentini), headquartered in Chiampo (Italy). It is a historic company that since its inception in 1906 has been characterized by a strong focus on research, environment and technological innovation and by several collaborations with renowned architects.

Its catalog ranges from big projects to the realisation of individual natural stone and marble products such as monuments, bathtubs and much more.


FROM THE RAW MARBLE BLOCK TO THE FINISHED PRODUCT
