The bridge is moved by a rack and pinion gantry system driven by Siemens brushless motors of the latest generation in order to guarantee rapid and high precision movements.
5-axis NC machining centre
Contour is a numerically controlled machining centre with five interpolated axes for production of items in marble, granite, mineral surface, and stone materials in general.
Thanks to its 700/1200 mm vertical stroke, Contour is ideal for architectural applications, funerary art, and deep slotting, allowing execution of complex and diversified machining processes.
- 1Structurally robust for durable high precision
- 2Superior class motor spindle
- 3All the tools required to finish the workpiece on the machine
- 4Perfect for both wet and dry machining operations
- 5Breton reliability and assistance
All in 1
Breton Contour is a machining centre that combines the robustness and thrust required for roughing operations with the dynamics and precision needed for finishing. A stable and robust base that is also extremely dynamic, configurable with a broad range of components and accessories in order to handle entire machining processes in a large number of sectors.
Breton Contour is acclaimed for its reliability and precision, two aspects long associated with this model and that place it at the summit of the stoneworking industry in 5-axis machining work.
Contour can be used from contouring up to the creation of complex large size 3D statuary.
The machine is also particularly suitable for grinding and recovery of non-conforming parts after moulding, thus helping to reduce waste and maximise profits.
For more demanding clients the machine can be equipped with 3D scanners to read the shapes to be subsequently reproduced.
Breton Contour is available in 5 versions that are identified by the Z stroke and the torque of the installed spindle:
NC 700 (High speed) - NC700 HD (High torque) - NC1200 (High speed) - NC1200 HD (High torque) - NC1200 SHD (High Torque)
Tool holder configurations:
HSK-B80 - versions NC700/1200 e NC700/1200 HD
HSK-B100 - version NC1200 SHD
- / 01Bridge with gantry system for rapid movements and precise positioning
Helical tooth racks which, with respect to spur tooth racks, have higher load bearing capacity, are more durable, and reduce running noise./ 02Helical tooth racks for higher thrust force
Robust bench in arc-welded steel with aluminium work table having slots for workpiece clamping requirements./ 03Arc-welded steel bench with aluminium slats
Roto-translating tool store offering constant availability of 27 cells for tool changes without reducing the work area or increasing the overall dimensions of the machine.
The store also allows replacements and actions to be performed from the exterior without having to shut down the machine./ 04Circular 27-cell travelling tool store
Disc head with HSK-B80/HSK-B100 tool holder, complete with automatic opening tool store mounted on the machine column.
Allows roughing cuts of the workpiece on a single machining centre./ 05Disc head with automatic tooling
Wireless RF touch probe to detect the workpiece position in the work area. This allows the utmost positioning and clamping flexibility./ 06Wireless RF touch probe
Laser probe to check tool profile, diameter and length, complete with software and mounting on one of the machine columns.
It makes it possible to check the tool condition automatically on the machine and instantly correct the CAM program in order to guarantee the best possible machining precision./ 07Laser probe management software for tool diameter checking
Facility to configure the machine with the 900 mm or 1600 mm diameter lathe to produce even the most complex geometries by means of an external rotation axis to which the workpiece is anchored./ 08Lathe for machining pillars and statues
