The availability of high power at the spindles is beneficial for various work processes, however this is only true if all the power supplied by the motor is transmitted to the operating head. Rather than conventional drive belts, Breton spindles are driven by multi ribbed “Poly-V” belts that prevent even the slightest slippage thus transferring all the necessary power and guaranteeing the maximum process efficiency.
Single head stone slab polishing machine
Polishing machine with single head on mobile beam for marble, granite, engineered stone or ceramic slabs.
Robustness, reliability, and ease of use are the main characteristics of the machine, which can be set up with a series of operating heads in order to process all types of slabs.
Available also in a version with automatic head changing.
- Robust honing spindles with dual actuator1
Robust honing spindles with dual actuator
The spindle dual actuator system controls machining pressure with extreme sensitivity, respecting also softer and more fragile stone materials and guaranteeing minimum response times for head lifts, to the benefit of perimeter honing quality.
- Perfect pressure management2
Perfect pressure management
The exclusive spindle configuration makes it possible to avoid excessive loading of the abrasive tools.
The force required to allow the abrasive tools to process the stone surface can be selected by the operator by means of pressure values adjustable by 0.1. With this system, the heads can follow the work surface with perfect sensitivity for uniformly high shine values, also on imperfectly flat slabs.
- Automatic abrasive tool wear monitoring3
Automatic abrasive tool wear monitoring
As in high production machines, the Luxor polishing machine is equipped with an abrasive tool wear monitoring and control system. Electronic sensors make it possible to check that the heads tool has sufficient abrasive coverage to continue operating, allowing it to be changed before it is fully consumed.
- Motorised splash protection system4
Motorised splash protection system
Thanks to the motorised splash protection system there are two main advantages:
- the cooling water is concentrated in the head-slab contact area instead of being sprayed in all directions
- protection from possible detachments of rotating tools.
The exclusive drive system makes it possible to keep the guard as close to the material as possible, leaving only the minimum indispensable gap between the material and the guard.
- Lasting value5
Thanks to their intrinsic quality, their ability to keep performing after many years in operation, and the constant availability of spare parts, they are highly sought after on the used machinery market and they retain very high resale values even after many years of service.
High quality with high volumes
Breton Luxor is versatile and reliable through time.
The cast iron honing-polishing unit features architecture that assures exceptional stiffness with reduced weight for high system dynamics. The 15 kW power rating ensures the maximum removal capacity of the honing/polishing tools for processing all materials. The spindle lifting/lowering movement is balanced thanks to a pair of cylinders with protected internal rods.
All aspects and components of Breton Luxor are assessed in terms of performance, durability, and reliability in the harsh conditions typical of the stoneworking industry.
- / 01High performance spindle drive
Water is supplied to the heads by means of a large diameter PVC common pipe rigidly mounted to the rear of the spindle and connected to it by means of flexible rubber hoses. This system guarantees rapid cleaning and maintenance operations. An ingenious system diverts the water to the exterior of the spindle body in case of overflows or duct clogging in order to protect the internal components./ 02Safety also in case of excessive supply flows
The external perimeter barriers formed of photoelectric cells and beam projectors keep operators safe without impeding access to the machine when necessary. This technological solution also allows perfect visibility of the work process by the operator with the absence of physical obstructions between the process and its supervision./ 03Perimeter protection with light curtains
