Do You Have A Project Related To Bricks, Blocks, And Tiles Decoration?
Brick, block, and tile linear polishing machine TITAN 250LP.
We produce several types of polishing machines which can be used for adding a glossy finish to both artificial and natural stones.
At the moment our most popular polishing machine is the TITAN 250LP which is equipped with seven polishing heads. We think that seven heads are a minimal requirement for having good quality finish using different kinds of raw materials. We also produce polishing machines with more polishing heads and wider tables on a special request.
In most cases, before the main polishing machine, we install a calibration machine to guarantee stable height and as a result the stable quality of the finish. Our polishing machines have powerful electrical drives and installation places for wear-resistant polishing tools.
All our polishing machines are supplied with water spraying systems for tool cooling. A client must arrange building pools for the wastewater. Stone dust and wastewater can be used in some cases as an addition to the main raw materials necessary for terrazzo tiles manufacturing.
High accuracy during the manufacturing process can guarantee stable work and no vibration.
Our automatic polishing machines can be equipped with automatic loaders for loading stacks of bricks, blocks, and tiles. After polishing you can get an amazing ‘moon marble’ finish which is not only very natural but also durable and can last without any additional treatment for many decades.
The main goal of all our polishing machines is to get a high-quality glossy finish that mimics marble and other stones’ look.
Terrazzo tiles polishing machines (stone polishing machine) makes surface ideally flat and smooth. During the polishing process, our machines reveal natural stones’ texture which is very noble and good-looking.

Types of brick and block surface decoration
Bricks, blocks, and tiles splitters.
Bricks and blocks splitters of TITAN “SPL” and TITAN “SPA” series are designed to split bricks, blocks, or specially made workpieces to obtain the surface texture that is similar to the texture of the natural split stone. Splitting of artificial stone has been used for quite a long time and it remains a popular method of decorative finishing.
The basic items for splitting are the workpieces consisting of bricks which are coupled along the bevels. Besides, workpieces from paired blocks and other items can be split as well.
The splitters differ in the following parameters: the cylinder force, the height of the item to be split, the number of knives, and the degree of automation.
We manufacture a variety of splitters with two and four knives. Machines can be either automatic or semi-automatic.
Two knives are enough to split the item along a pre-formed bevel; to receive a smoother chip when splitting a workpiece without bevels, we recommend using four-sided splitters. Splitting the block requires a lot of the cylinders’ force which makes the knives move.
We manufacture splitters with turn-around tables and adjustable stops for splitting items products of completely different sizes.
The semi-automatic splitters are called TITAN SPL and the fully automatic splitters are called TITAN SPA.
Apart from mass-produced splitters, we can develop individual solutions with different degrees of automation.
TITAN splitters for giving bricks, blocks, and tiles a deep “rock” texture.
After splitting, the surface of items isn’t textured enough: you won’t even see chips if stand only several meters away from the brickwork.
In this case, one should use splitters. They can make the item surface or a special brick workpiece much more textured.
The highly-textured surface is often called a “rock” surface.
For such cases, we have developed a whole range of woodpecker splitters and piano splitters.
The woodpecker splitter has a splitting surface, which literally repeats the shape of the chisel. Due to a large number of chiseling movements, the brick surface turns out to be very textured and resembles a rough chip of stonecutter. The woodpecker splitters are manufactured in different options and with different designs of chiseling elements and their drives.
The same effect of a rougher chip can be achieved by using more complex piano splitters. They have many chisels which move alternately. These are high-performance units that can be built-in into fully automatic slotting lines.
TITAN polishing and sizing machines for sizing and polishing bricks, blocks, and tiles.
TITAN polishing machines (polishing units) are designed to give the surfaces of products molded on hyper press (bricks, blocks, tiles) the effect of natural polished stone.
Polishing machines or polishing units have a linear design. In general, they are similar to natural stone polishing machines, however, there are some peculiarities. We use at least 7 polishing heads and one sizing head in our brick polishing units. More polishing heads can be used when working on harder types of raw materials or if there are higher requirements for the cleanliness of the product’s surface gloss. The brick polishing technology is quite new. If the bricks were polished using this technology, they are called moon marble, moon bricks, Brickhouse bricks, etc. We have developed and patented our technology for manufacturing such bricks.
Just like a brick, a block can be polished on polishing units too. Because of the larger size of the block, one will need larger polishing units with more powerful drives. That’s the only peculiarity of block polishing.
We have developed linear and turret polishing machines for polishing paving flags, as well as facade tiles and Venetian mosaic tiles. Turret polishing machines are more mobile and cheaper, but linear polishing lines usually provide better quality and higher productivity.
As expendable materials for polishing, we use standard diamond-tipped elements such as Frankfurt and others.
Tumbling machines for the aging of bricks, blocks, and tiles.
Tumbling machines (tumbling drums) are installations designed for finishing bricks, blocks, and tiles’ surfaces with the effect of aging. The simplest tumbling drum has a rubber coating. The products themselves are used as tumbling media. Products (bricks, blocks, tiles) are loaded inside the drum. After this, the tumbling drum starts to rotate. Collisions of products against each other and against teeth sticking out from the walls of the drum lead to the finishing of the edges and their irregular chipping.
A simpler option for finishing the brick surface (tumbling) is an installation with chains. Rapidly rotating chains hit the brick surface, thus, making the edges smoother and aging the whole product surface.
The aging of bricks, blocks, and tiles is a very popular finishing technique. Each brick turns out to be unique because tumbling provides random chipping of edges.
Units for washing the tile surface.
Our company manufactures installations for washing the surface of tiles using a high-pressure flush of water.
High-pressure washing of the tile surface is a process in which a flush of water washes off fine particles of aggregate from the product’s surface. Washing is performed on the recently formed tiles. As a result, the surface of the product becomes rough and looks appealing. The main advantage of this technology is the much better traction of shoes on the surface of such tiles.
In terms of technology, it’s very important to correctly select the granulometric composition of the mixture.
Units for painting and impregnating the bricks, blocks, and tiles’ surface.
In some cases, one needs to finish the surface of bricks, blocks, and tiles by impregnating them with chemical reagents (for example, a primer) or painting their surface.
We have developed painting lines for painting and the impregnation of bricks. As the products move in such lines, they are evenly sprayed with chemical agents and paint. Another option is a short-term dipping of products in a tank with reagent or paint.
