I broke my CNC router bit – How did that happen?
A customer of mine called yesterday stating that the CNC Router bit he uses regularly just broke.
Why? It could be due to a manufacturing defect, but that is not very likely.
I then asked him to explain what work he was doing with his CNC machine when the breakage occurred.
Amastone.com, the e-commerce website specialising in tools and equipment for the stone industry, already receives more orders from UK than from any market outside Italy.
In the magazine “marmo macchine INTERNATIONAL” (May 2020 – Edition 113) the CASE HISTORY on the English artist Thomas Greenaway who chose our 3-axis Amastone CNC to create his works.
Greenaway is the artist who, together with James Elliott, created the coat of arms of Richard III tombstone in Leicester Cathedral.
The increasing demand of the industry for complex-shaped products in natural stone makes the use of automatic CNC machines necessary.
Today almost every stone fabrication shop has one or more CNC machines and make use of special cnc tools designed for the stone, the marble, the granite or quartz working.
Our brand – amastone – means a lot to us, so we decided to register it in Italy, Europe and United States. If you are wondering which are the reasons why a company must register its trademark, here 11 reasons we have considered.

The CNC Vacuum Cups provide the safest holding system for Stone and Glass CNC machines. Stone fabricators often have to drill a marble slab or need to work the edges of a granite countertop, in all these cases the slab must be raised from the top of the table and must be properly held to not move during the machining. With a CNC Suction Cups’ System, this kind of jobs is done safely and faster than using brackets or other improvised clamping systems.
In this article, we have selected the next 3 international exhibitions about the stone working industry (including machinery and tools) which we believe are the most important and you should participate by the end of 2019.
Have you ever heard of the machine commands [email protected], [email protected] or [email protected]?
These commands are available in the standard set installed in an Amastone Next CNC router (thanks to the use of a highly professional control such as OSAI) and they allow you to change the dynamics of the CNC machine’s movements.
If you process natural stones and ceramic you have to set different parameters in your bridge saw to have a precise cut and to optimize the tool wearing.
