Breton Sphera can define sequences of cutting and workpiece movement operations automatically to optimise productivity and allow the operator to take action whenever necessary.
The operator can also concentrate on programming the machining process for the next slab while the machine is working.
The software suite for bridge saws
Conceived and developed for advanced and intuitive management of slab transformation into a finished product, Breton Sphera is the proprietary software suite for numerically controlled bridge saws.
- 1Powerful and intuitive

The operator is always guided when programming cuts: the software proposes exclusively “logically possible” operations at each step; a sort of “tutor” that makes it possible to save hours of work by avoiding errors and oversights.
Also, the slabs in the system can be easily selected and identified because, unlike standard commercial applications, the system has a preview function: scrolling rapidly through the database means you can easily find what you wish to cut.
Evolved functions that can be used by anyone
The intuitive software interface facilitates the procedure, even for less expert users
Breton Sphera provides highly evolved apps and functions capable of reducing programming times even in ultramodern fabshops.
Breton Sphera can define sequences of cutting and workpiece movement operations automatically to optimise productivity and allow the operator to take action whenever necessary./ 01Automatic sequences
Breton Sphera manages automatic nesting of the cutting layout also of imported DXF files in order to use the slab surface area to the full. The pieces to be cut can be inserted, moved, rotated, and connected to other pieces (automatic snap) simply by touching the multi-touch screen./ 02Drag and drop nesting
Breton Sphera allows automatic optimisation of the slab surface by computing a series of factors and combination experiences and proposing the most appropriate cutting layouts for the pieces to be produced.
It anyway gives the operator the possibility of changing or forcing certain conditions. The resulting savings in time and especially in material is often highly significant./ 03Slab surface optimisation
The interface features smartphone derived multitouch technology: a different and more powerful way of working that allows page scrolling, pinch zooms, fingertip drawing, rotation of workpieces and far more besides. Mouse and keyboard are anyway still available./ 04Multitouch
The operator can use the contextual help function to better understand the operation of each command thanks to dedicated video tutorials./ 05Constant operator support
The machine on-board CAD program allows simple and immediate drawing of the shapes to be created on the slab also using predefined parametric figures, without having to go to the office./ 06Integrated CAD functions
After digital acquisition of the slab image by the camera, Breton Sphera allows you to choose the slab to be processed in the digital repository, and to draw the perimeter on the slab in question and mark defects by tracing them with your finger./ 07Slab selection and defects marking
The Breton Sphera suite is installed in the machine touch screen panel and is available also in an office version./ 08Usable on the machine and on a desktop computer
