The use of a Dual Drive system with two motors guarantees high force for the heaviest duty operations, exploiting the power of both motors delivering their maximum output in the same direction. For higher precision work the preload value is increased automatically to obtain the maximum accuracy.
The Dual Drive system has lower energy consumption than linear motors and it does not require dedicated cooling systems.
High dynamic and high precision 5 axis vertical gantry machining centre
The development of this machining centre was based on careful technical choices that combine thrust and robustness with dynamics and precision for perfect performance in hi-feed roughing, semi-finishing and finishing of medium-large workpieces in steel, lightweight alloys, and special composites.

Created for mould & die makers, but perfect for aerospace too
Matrix 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.
The robust sandwich structure columns in arc welded and stabilised steel bring exceptional structural stiffness and a high level of vibration damping, both factors that translate into better surface finishing of machined workpieces and longer life of tools and components subject to wear. To guarantee surfaces with a superior finish and greater precision, Matrix E2 exploits High Dynamics and Thermal Shield technologies, both of which are exclusive to Breton. All these factors combine to make this machining centre ideal for the world of large size moulds and dies, but with the correct configuration it is also perfect for machining work in the aerospace sector or in general precision engineering.

The entire Z axis is free of components that could interfere with the operating range because the space occupied by the RAM is the same as or less than that occupied by the head. This is an advantage for deep machining work or when movements are required in confined spaces. Motion is provided via 2 recirculating ball screws with double preloaded nuts, and the axis moves on 2 solid guides at the rear of the machine connected to the carriage via 5 runner blocks: all solutions aimed at achieving the maximum stability./ 02Exceptionally solid RAM
The work area is clad with modular stainless steel panels. Not only do they tend to keep cleaner, but they also remain almost unchanged through time, despite constant exposure to dust and chips./ 03Stainless steel work area
Matrix E2 can be fitted with various types of tool stores, all of which fully compatible with the new tool changer – now even faster and more compact. On the one hand this allowed us to design the column to make it as stiff as possible, and on the other hand it offers the freedom to expand or alter the store to accommodate evolving requirements./ 04Tool changer incorporated in the column or circular tool store
The hydraulic and pneumatic power units of Matrix E2 are grouped together in a compact and orderly manner in a dedicated area to facilitate diagnostics and maintenance. The modular and scalable upper part is fitted for possible future additions to the machine with accessories and/or automations.
For cleanliness and safety, a fluid collection tray is fitted at the base of the cabinet to prevent the release of pollutant liquids into the environment./ 05Optimised maintenance corner
Like other Breton products, Matrix E2 can be optionally equipped with a vast range of rotary tables that can be integrated in the base frame. This allows combined milling operations on cylindrical elements or complex geometries./ 06Available with positioning table
