Combi is delivered pre-assembled with prewired electrical cabinet. The entire assembly and start-up phase can be completed in 5 days. Combi can be easily relocated on the customer's site to accommodate possible changes to the production layout.
Monobloc 5 axis disc milling and cutting centre combined with a waterjet cutting system
The possibility of combining disc cutting processes with waterjet cutting, together with elements such as on-board spindle vacuum cups, bridge camera and tilting table, make Combi the most advanced cutting centre for the creation of kitchen tops, vanity tops and claddings.
- It combines disc cutting, waterjet cutting and Rocket Tool system1
It combines disc cutting, waterjet cutting and Rocket Tool system
The presence of these three tools makes Combi a complete and versatile cutting centre. The disc is used to make linear cuts, both straight and angled, and wide radius circular cuts. Waterjet technology, in which the slab is cut by a very high pressure jet of water mixed with abrasive material, makes it possible to perform precision work processes that are not possible with the disc, such as inside cuts, tight corners and small size holes.
Conversely, the Rocket Tool system, composed of an additional motor spindle that can reach 14,000 rpm, can be used with end cutters or a core drill bit. 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.
- Smart cutting process for the maximum productivity2
Smart cutting process for the maximum productivity
The Breton Sphera suite, available for this cutting centre, automatically proposes the best cutting process to the operator in terms of time, cost, and slab surface optimisation. From this perspective, the system know when to use the disc and when to use the waterjet.
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. Also waterjet cutting is controlled completely by the system, which automatically defines the abrasive quantity and the necessary pressure, taking into account the parameters entered during programming.
- Rigid monobloc structure with integral tilting table3
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 structure descends to floor level, making slab loading and unloading operations exceptionally easy and safe. The stainless steel water collection tank is located under the bed.
- Bridge mounted digital camera4
Bridge mounted digital camera
The One Shot on Board (OSOB) camera installed on the bridge and 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 Combi HMI before starting the machining cycle.
- Vast range of accessories for all needs5
Vast range of accessories for all needs
You can choose from a wide range of accessories designed to meet different processing requirements.
Alongside the main spindle, the machine can be equipped with the Rocket Tool or Label Pro automatic printer, to identify and track cut pieces.
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.
By moving cut pieces between one work process and the next, the spindle vacuum cups make it possible to minimise cutting kerf.
The robustness and versatility that were lacking
Combi’s strength is that it makes it possible to use disc cutting and waterjet cutting without having to move the slab and to choose the best technology in terms of efficiency, depending on the operation to be performed. The machine will therefore opt for disc cutting, more economical, when possible, and switch to waterjet technology in all other cases. This serves to minimise the production of scrap and execute work processes more in less time and hence at lower cost. It is also possible to create inclined planes without having to mill the workpiece surface but merely by exploiting variable angle waterjet cutting with continuous touch probing performed by the Miterwave Touch system.
Major advantages for higher productivity also derive from the spindle on-board vacuum cups that make it possible to move the pieces to use the disc cutting function. In addition, installing the Rocket Tool system – an additional motor spindle that can reach up to 14,000 rpm, on which to mount end cutters or core drill bits – allows the execution of through holes, blind holes, milled recesses and rebates.
- / 01Designed for delivery fully assembled
The exclusive slab surface 0.1 mm reading device interacts with the machine numerical controller in real time and corrects all axis positions dynamically so that the material is always cut at the correct angle with respect to the surface. This system allows perfect mitre cuts also on low thickness and imperfectly flat material./ 02Miterwave Touch system for perfect inclined cuts
Combi is equipped with a device to control the flow of abrasive to mix during waterjet cutting, avoiding slab breakages./ 03Abrasive flow control device
The work table is composed of galvanised steel blades covered with high friction coefficient rubber profiles to increase grip of the slab during the cutting phase. The rubber profiles are easily replaced to ensure a constantly perfect cutting surface, especially important when working on low thickness slabs./ 04Replaceable high grip rubber profiles
The exclusive tilting work table with dual independent articulations makes it possible to bring the lower edge very close to the floor when in the tilted position, thus making slab loading operations simple and safe. The special 4-piston system also allows insertion of the slab very close to the water surface, inside the tank and not merely above it, in such a way as to contain overspray./ 05Articulated tilting table
Breton patent. The machine is intrinsically more accurate when joining dual technology cuts: the disc cut is in line with the waterjet cut because their coordinates are defined by the same positioning operation./ 06Waterjet nozzle on the same axis as the disc
The machine can be equipped with the high speed Rocket Tool spindle accessory, which makes it possible to perform milling operations with end cutters or finger bits./ 07Optional Rocket Tool spindle
Labelling of finished parts before cutting aids traceability of parts throughout the entire production chain./ 08Optional Label PRO printer
