Contourbreton NC 300 EVO - NEW accessories FREEPASS and EASYLOCK

When you buy a new Countorbreton NC 300 and NC 300 EVO, you always have a wide range of opportunities to personalize it to improve its use and adapt it to your needs and desires.
Choosing the Contourbreton with ROBOCUP bench will allow you to use special Robocup passive suction cups that do not require a power supply. This system will provide the necessary suction directly from the bench based on the position of the cups, without the need for tubes or manual taps.(EASYLOCK).

You can choose whether your operator, guided by a laser projector, can place the suction cup on the right position or you can deliver the suction cup to the machine that will place it in the desired position, or let the machine operate in full autonomy.
The only thing your Contourbreton will ask is that you have washed your bench after you've unloaded the previously finished pieces.

In case of serial production orders of countertops that requires the same dimensions, you can equip your Contourbreton with EASYLOCK.

This system consists of a fixed suction cup bar located on the back of the machine, and a second one on the front, with micrometric adjustment.

When the workpiece width changes, it is sufficient to move the micrometric bar with its suction cups by simply deactivating or activating the suction cups mounted, which will slide the bar with the help of two perpendicular rails.

If you'd like to receive a quotation about FREEPASS or EASYLOCK please feel free to write to
We'll get back to you straight away!

Thank you for the attention and best regards.

MiterWave and Combicut: the perfect miter always, even with non-planar slabs

MiterWave: "if the world were perfect, it wouldn't be (Yogi Berra)".

Often, if not always, the slabs of different materials, above all ceramic, are not perfectly flat or as flat as one might think.

Tensions, bad cutting, or imperfect calibrations are very common.

When you want to get a perfect 45° cuts (Miter) with a machine, you have to work hard and the result is not guaranteed.

Breton presents MiterWave, the hardware/software package to be able to perform perfect 45° cuts in all non-planarity conditions.

MiterWave, which is especially dedicated to ceramic slabs,
automatically corrects the cutting paths for a perfect result.
MiterWave can be installed on CombiCut machines, even existing ones.

Write to for more information.

Thank you for reading this post.

Best regards.

Smartflex - CNC cutting centre with three cutting spindles, belt rotating work bench and twist head

Equipped with three cutting spindles, one of which mounted on a rotating head that is also equipped with workpiece suction cups in order to optimise the surface area to be cut.

Tool for chamfering and cutting at the same time
Perfect for the production of panels with chamfered edges. It is no more necessary to perform the next chamfer on a different machine.


Breton SmartFlex is the most productive and flexible solution, ideal for fabshops specialised in both medium-large series production for the building trade and single slab optimization procedures for the furniture sector (kitchens, bathrooms, etc.).
In the single slab process with cuts optimisation using exclusively the rotating spindle with vacuum lifting tool, the Breton SmartFlex is transformed precisely into a Breton Smartcut Optima.

Breton Smartflex: the ideal solution for the laboratories of the building-furnishing sector

Article first published on MM International n. 98
Towards the end of the 70s, Luigi Scapin, with his three sons Vincenzo, Gianni and Romeo, built the first factory specialized in the crafting of stones for the building sector. Scamar-Scapin Marbles was then born in Tombolo (PD, Italy).

The company works with natural stone, marble, granite and engineered stone for building construction and furniture design.

The company's core business is kitchen worktops, alongside several related products: bathroom counter-tops, table tops and furniture accessories, floor and wall surfaces, bath tubs, carved blocks and sculptures.

The first step for the company’s success was to increase the level of precision of the work processes, which was achieved by adapting the existing machine tools and purchasing the first NC stone working machines.

The second step was to change the company’s name with one that communicate confidence: "Marmo Arredo, the stones for the furniture".

The most important markets for Marmo Arredo are currently Italy and other European countries, in relation to the daily output of kitchen tops, bathroom tops and furniture accessories. On the worldwide stage, the company operates through contracts or with custom-made projects.

In the near future Marmo Arredo envisions a more heterogeneous market demand that includes both engineered and natural stones, as well as a significant increase in ceramic based materials.

Marmo Arredo is now on the market more and more effectively and efficiently and its research vocation is constantly being proved by constant development of state-of-the-art patents and technologies; in this being also supported by custom-made machineries and solutions developed by Breton. 

Breton has recently provided a SmartFlex: a CNC cutting center with 3 spindles, belt rotating work bench and twist head. One of the spindles comes with a head with suction cups for taking the material and optimizing the surface to be cut. It is a flexible and productive solution, ideal for building products and home furnishings (kitchens, bathrooms, etc.).

The company has specific and complex needs and was looking for an advanced multi-disk cutter that could easily and quickly combine inclined and non-orthogonal contour cut-outs for construction jobs with more complex cuts typical of applications for the furnishing sector.

SmartFlex, thanks to the ability to make sloping cuts on a variety of product types, and to easily use drilling tools, is an "excellent, fast and accurate tool".
Remote programming of the machine without on-site human intervention is another essential advantage which facilitates the production process.

Compared to previous machines, SmartFlex is steps ahead both from the mechanical point of view (higher speed and precision) as well as for the handling of materials.
The machine at some moments "seems to be dancing: the combined movements of spindles and disks are fast, harmonious and accurate".

Thanks to on-the-field experience and Breton collaboration, the company will be able to further refine the software to optimize slab load / unload and tool change cycles, and to further enhance the overall cutting optimization algorithm.

“Breton S.p.A., since 1963 innovation and technology at the service of the operators”.
