Granite

The manufacture of state-of-the-art mechanical engineering components from ancient natural stone: what at first glance appears to be a contradiction is – at a second glance - an ideal combination.

Granite is ultimately an optimal material for the manufacture of precision machines owing to its specific characteristics. Its low thermal expansion coefficient, abrasion strength and its low thermal conductivity ensure high precision in the micro range. Depending on the requirements, a variety of different types of granite are available, for example Impala. E. Reitz Natursteintechnik purchases high quality hard rock types from stone quarries in South Africa, France, Scandinavia and Austria.
