Blades for cutting marble

Marble is one of the most popular materials in the building industry, not only because of its highly resistant nature but also because it makes the space look brighter. It is generally used for kitchen furniture as it makes it look cleaner, but also in hotel lobbies or any other room that we want to make more elegant and classier. 

How to cut marble with the best blade for your project

Marble is a beautiful and durable material that can enhance any space. Whether you want to use it for kitchen countertops, hotel lobbies, or other elegant settings, you need to know how to cut marble properly to achieve the best results.

Marble is not as hard as granite, but it is harder than limestone. That means you need a diamond blade to cut it smoothly and precisely. But not all diamond blades are the same. Depending on the type of marble, the thickness of the tiles or slabs, and the number of cuts you need to make, you may need a different marble cutting blade for your project.

At SIMA, we have a wide range of marble cutting blades to suit your needs. Whether you need a marble cutting blade for a circular saw, an angle grinder, or a benchsaw, we have the right one for you. Here are some of the factors you should consider when choosing a marble cutting disc:

The steel core: The steel core is the part of the blade that holds the diamond segments. It should be strong and rigid to prevent warping and breaking. Look for blades with a strong steel core and holes that prevent the blade from overheating.

The diamond segments: The diamond segments are the part of the blade that actually cut the marble. They should be sharp and durable to ensure smooth and fast cutting. Look for blades with turbo, rim, or segment design depending on the type of cut you want to make. Turbo blades are ideal for fast and clean cuts, rim blades are ideal for smooth and chip-free cuts, and segment blades are ideal for deep and long cuts.

You can find all these blades and more at SIMA online store. We have over 50 years of experience in manufacturing high-quality machinery and tools for cutting marble and other materials. We also offer free shipping and returns, as well as a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

How to choose the right saw blade for cutting marble

A marble cutting blade is an essential tool for cutting marble tiles or slabs. However, there are some factors you need to consider before choosing one. You have to keep in mind the dimension of your tiles, the marble cut size you want to achieve, the number of tiles or slabs you need to cut, the marble saw you are going to use, and the condition of your marble diamond blade. Choosing the wrong marble saw blade can damage your material and the blade. It can also cause warping, breaking, and flying shrapnel. Another piece of advice to avoid this kind of mistake is to not press sideways when cutting stone materials such as marble. Even if you have the proper saw blade for cutting marble, you need to be patient and focused on the task.

Can you dry cut marble?

The short answer is yes, but it’s not recommended. Dry cutting marble can cause several problems that can affect your results and your health.

Dry cutting marble creates a lot of dust that can make a mess in your workspace and contaminate the air. This dust can also clog your blade and reduce its cutting efficiency. Moreover, this dust can be harmful to your lungs if you breathe it in, especially if you have asthma or other respiratory issues.

If you can’t reach a water flow for any reason and you have to dry cut, it is essential to use a marble diamond blade specifically manufactured for dry cutting. Using any other marble cutter blade or a standard diamond disc for marble could damage the blade and your tiles.
