Genya is delivered pre-assembled with prewired electrical cabinet. Once the customer has positioned the machine, only the front housings remain to be fitted. The entire assembly and start-up phase can be completed in 5 days. Genya can be easily relocated on the customer's site to accommodate possible changes to the production layout.
5-axis monobloc disc-type cutting centre
The possibility of having cutting disc, core drill bit and Rocket Tool with end cutters always ready for use, combined with elements such as spindle vacuum cups, bridge camera and tilting table make Genya the best machine for the creation of kitchen worktops, vanity tops and claddings.
- Fast movements and high torque to boost productivity1
Fast movements and high torque to boost productivity
Structural components designed in the tiniest details and assembled in Breton's plants, together with the latest generation of Siemens motors and electronics, mean this cutting centre offers top level reliability in its product class.Axis movements are provided by helical tooth racks which, with respect to spur tooth racks, have higher load bearing capacity, are more durable and emit less running noise.
The robust spindle fitted as standard, rated at up to 21,6 kW with service factor S6, provides all the power and torque needed to exploit the possibilities offered by the discs fully with high performance and thus increase productivity by as much as 50% compared to standard market values.
The spindle vacuum cups, which use a Venturi system unlike conventional suction cups, extract air, water and dirt directly at source, with the benefit of not clogging the lines and thus avoiding faults and uncontrolled release of workpieces. The increase in output combined with the reduction in idle times make Genya the most productive cutting centre on the market.
- Rigid monobloc structure with integral tilting table2
Rigid monobloc structure with integral tilting table
The monobloc structure machined from a single piece and then hot galvanised offers both the robustness needed for the most demanding work cycles and lasting corrosion resistance. This type of structure, specifically designed to deliver the machine to the customer in pre-assembled form, allows for easy repositioning of the machine on the site, also because it does not require foundations.The tilting table integrated in the monobloc structure descends almost to floor level, making slab loading and unloading operations exceptionally easy and safe.
- Equipped with all the tools required to finish the workpiece3
Equipped with all the tools required to finish the workpiece
In addition to the cutting disc, the disc motor axis of Genya can be fitted with a core drill bit, which can remain on the machine also during the other processing phases. Also, the machine can be equipped with the Rocket Tool system, composed of an extra motor spindle that can reach 14,000 rpm, to be used for end cutter tools for inside corner cuts. Keeping all 3 tools mounted means that all the work processes required to create a kitchen worktop or bathroom top can be performed without having to unload the workpieces to transfer them to other machines.The One Shot on Board (OSOB) camera installed on the bridge in a position perfectly perpendicular to the work table, is optimally located to take photos of the slab that has just been loaded to allow the operator to assess various cutting layouts directly on the Genya HMI before starting the machining cycle. By moving the cut pieces between one work process and the next, the spindle vacuum cups make it possible to minimise material wastage and optimise use of the slab.
- Numerical control, software and technologies that give an edge in performance4
Numerical control, software and technologies that give an edge in performance
The Siemens 24" touch screen control panel provides the operator with improved interaction, with easy programming of the required cuts by means of a few touches on the screen. The Breton Sphera interface allows tablet-type interaction with the system, so positioning and measurements are carried out simply by swiping the screen, with each phase guided by a wizard.The software runs on Windows 10 and can be used in two modes: Easy and Advanced.
Easy mode is designed for simple operations or for less expert operators, and it allows programming in just a few steps. It includes functions such as “manual nesting”, wherein the operator can manually build a cutting layout by using a finger to drag the polygons on the screen, and “magnet”, which helps the operator align the polygons alongside one another in order to reduce the number of cuts.
Advanced mode makes it possible to use the full potential of the software, exploiting all the available functions.
Breton Vein Matching is used to plan cutting operations, simultaneously coupling 8 different slabs and matching veining to achieve a continuous vein effect while viewing the final result obtained in 3D.
- Vast range of accessories for all needs5
Vast range of accessories for all needs
Although Genya already has a generous equipment package as standard, Breton has prepared a series of accessories to meet special requirements. Alongside the main spindle, the machine can be equipped with the Rocket Tool or Label Pro automatic printer, to identify and track the cut pieces and keep tabs on them until they are installed in situ. The rubber faced work table increases grip of the slab during cutting operations, while adding a handheld unit allows the operator to enter the machine and perform certain tasks while maintaining close visual surveillance. The low thicknesses kit allows installation of discs with thin core and teeth for cuts on ceramic materials or in order to limit cutting kerf.In relation to the software, apart from the Vein matching application to achieve continuous 3D veining effects, SmartCam Mill is also available, for disc shaping operations or milling of drainage grooves and bas-reliefs, all of which can be simulated on screen to avoid collisions and errors.
Finally, the Surfacer kit, which combines the head with Frankfurt mounting interface tools installable on the main spindle, with a dedicated software application, makes it possible to carry out slab brushing processes to create high-end aesthetic finishes.
The fastest way to make kitchen countertops
A complete cutting centre that offers up to three different installed tools, ready for use for the entire period of the work process. In this context, the machine can be fitted with a disc of up to 600 mm in diameter, a core drill bit or cutter on the spindle axis and, with the Rocket Tool option, a Finger Bit, used mainly for cutting inside corners.
The tilting table, spindle vacuum cups, bridge camera, and touch probe make operations of loading/unloading, set up and handling of cut pieces far faster and safer, avoiding material wastage and idle times. All this affects productivity, so Genya makes it possible to finish more parts in the same time, thus increasing profits.
Another core characteristic of Genya is reliability. All mechanical and electronic components are top quality, while assembly operations are carried out by Breton's expert technicians, all factors that guarantee long product life with a greatly reduced number of problems.
