Breton ContourFive - the present and the future of ornamental sculpture


The natural stone manufacturing technology – marble and granite – has made strides over the last years thanks to 5-axis working centers, allowing to obtain complex architectural products that were not conceivable until a few years ago.



ù



Thanks to its vertical travel of 700/1200 mm, Breton CONTOURFIVE is the ideal machine for architectural and funerary art as well as for those processing which require a deep dishing out; It therefore offers the users the possibility of performing different and complex machining operations wich would otherwise require several machines: 
  • shaping utilising the saw blade to get large pieces with complex shape. 
  • shaping and dishing out utilising millers. 
  • contouring utilising shaping tools. 
  • sawing utilising the saw blade. 
  • turning of columns with shaped profiles or machining of position for the saw blade to create a twisted effect all along the surface. 


The software "Breton SmartCam MODELLING" has been developed to simulate the Breton CONTOURFIVE when working by dividing the machining centre into different parts: 
- machine structure, 
- axes, 
- spindle, 
- tool-store, 
- tools. 

 The software imports the file generated by the CAM program (ISO code) for the piece to be machined and simulates the entire machining cycle, thus detecting any possible impact which may occur. The software is installed in the pc of the buyer.

This is what a Breton ContourFive 5-axis working center can do:

 



The accessory "Store for saw blade" allows taking/storing automatically the bladewith a maximum diameter of 1000mm. The advantages are the reduction of troughs and the automation of the whole process.







With the accessory "Lathe" is possible to produce columns and twisted effect details with workable sizes: max. diameter 960/ max. length 3200mm.






The opportunity to obtain architectural elements reducing production time, material waste and marginal error makes this machinery a must – have for all manufacturers.
At the same time, the advantage for the final costumer is to have a 360° customizable product , requiring less time and money than those required by a craftsman.





































Breton Contourfive gives you the chance to turn any idea into reality.

We’ll get back to you promptly.

Thank you for the attention and best regards.

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 mail@breton.it.
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 mail@breton.it 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.
