Monuments & cemeteries
The patented vacuum-blasting method from Tornado ACS is the perfect solution for photo engraving on granite tombstones and QR codes on natural gravestones. The sensitive foil is not damaged with this soft blasting method. Photos and QR codes can be applied directly on the stone in the workshop or on site. Because of the closed cycle of the vacuum-blasting method, no contaminations develop.
Creating a photo engraving on granite with the vacuum-blast machine has many advantages. The object doesn’t have to be placed inside or outside a blast cabin. The area to be vacuum blasted can be of any size, and the foil is not damaged even during long and intense vacuum blasting.
Photo engraving on granite: How does it work?
With its innovative jet-blasting system, the Tornado ACS can even engrave detailed photos on granite. The first step involves creating a foil of the desired image, which is pressed onto a clean stone surface. The machine then vacuum-blasts different areas of the image until they have reached the appropriate depth. The contrast can be enhanced with white paint, once the foil is removed. The system can also create colour-coded images, reproduce portraits and engrave logos on granite with no risk of damaging the foil or the stone.
Granite, marble and bronze restoration
Tornado ACS is dedicated to preserving history and commemorating the past with efficient restoration solutions. When plaques and monuments age, their beauty can diminish over time as they take on a dull and faded appearance. The Tornado ACS can safely restore a granite or marble monument to pristine condition, as well as bring back the original lustre of a bronze plaque. The gentle system will blast away dirt, grime and other imperfections without damaging the original surface.
