The use of Dual Drive motors guarantees high force for the most demanding operations exploiting the full power of both motors operating in the same direction. For higher precision work the preload value is increased automatically to obtain the maximum accuracy. In terms of energy usage, the Dual Drive system has lower current consumption than linear motors and it does not require dedicated cooling systems.
High dynamic and high precision modular 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 large workpieces in steel, lightweight alloys, and special composites.

Far more than a machining centre
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 Dual Drive motors guarantee power and precision; they move in unison to provide the maximum thrust when the machining process calls for sheer force, while they operate in preload mode to perform high-precision work. To guarantee superior surface finishes, Matrix E3 uses Breton’s High Dynamics and Thermal Shield technologies. The true benefit is to have all operations in a single set-up: roughing, semi-finishing, finishing, measurement, inspection and quality control of surfaces.

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 6 runner blocks: all solutions aimed at achieving the maximum stability./ 02Exceptionally solid RAM
A clean machine lasts much longer. That's why we clad the work area with modular stainless steel panels, which are easy to clean and retain their properties through time, despite being constantly exposed to dust and chips./ 03Smart work area
Also the electrical cabinets and maintenance area has been optimised. The hydraulic power and pneumatic control units are grouped together in an orderly and compact manner, ensuring all modules involved in diagnostics and maintenance are easily accessible. Designed to be modular and scalable, this system allows potential machine enhancements with the addition of accessories/automations in the future./ 04Optimised maintenance corner
Matrix E3 can accommodate several types of tool magazines, all of which fully compatible with the new high-speed compact tool changer. This solution, which makes use of a reduced opening in the machine column, makes it possible to maintain the maximum structural stiffness with a wide choice of possible tool magazine positions./ 05Tool changer incorporated in the column
