Breton Forte

3 and 4 axis high output monobloc contouring centre

Its structural robustness and exceptional mechanical and electronic reliability mean the machine is ideal for drilling, shaping and contouring in applications such as kitchen worktops, vanity tops, and furnishing accessories.

The basic models

All Breton Forte, Compact, Wide and Extreme models are characterised by muscular 16 kW 12,000 rpm spindle that offers all the power and torque needed to perform the required operations effortlessly, even with very small diameter tools.

The work table size affects the number of workpieces that can be loaded simultaneously in order to optimise the number of tool changes and set-up times.
One major benefit is gained by opting for the Metalquartz work table, which offers exceptional stability and is not subject to corrosion, unlike conventional steel work tables. Grinding is easy in the extreme, thanks to the composition of the table in a special quartz based composite so the process can be performed using the same tools used by the machine for normal production operations.
High productivity versions

Forte is also available in high output versions, designed to increase the quantity of parts produced.

Forte Indy is equipped with a dual rotary work table that makes it possible to load/unload the workpieces while machining proceeds, thereby reducing idle times.

Forte Flux, on the other hand, is distinguished by its workpiece feeding and clamping system. In this system, the workpieces are moved on a conveyor belt and clamped for machining by means of pneumatic grippers instead of the classic vacuum pods. The machine operates fully independently; workpieces can be changed in less than a minute and sink cutout unloading, if necessary, is performed without interrupting the work cycle.

Forte Flash 3 and 4 axis high output contouring centre, driven by linear motors.
The extreme speed and acceleration of the axes, combined with a powerful high-speed spindle, reduces machining times and thus increases productivity.
