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 power and high precision modular 5 axis vertical gantry machining centre
Concentrated force and accuracy on large dimensions to obtain the maximum performance in roughing, semi-finishing and finishing of workpieces in tough materials, steel, or lightweight alloy.
Available also in a milling and turning version (Flymill MT) that combines the functions of a vertical lathe with those of a 5 continuous axis milling machine, extending the range of possible applications with a single setup.

Power, speed and versatility in a single machining centre
Breton Flymill is the machining centre designed for companies operating with very large workpieces and, especially, for machining of tough materials that require high power and torque.
With Z axis strokes up to 1,500 mm, cross strokes up to 4,000 mm and longitudinal strokes up to 30,000 mm, Flymill is the machining centre for tough materials with the highest operating volume in the Breton range.
This machine is distinguished by its ability to combine milling and turning in a single set-up, exploiting the potential of the turning table and the automatic heads store to automatically switch from the powerful milling head to the boring bar head during the machining process.

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 head changing system, the facility to install turning heads, and the high performance rotary tables, all combine to make the Flymill MT (Mill Turn) version the ideal solution for the general mechanical engineering sector and for machining circular parts for the aerospace industry.
A single machining centre that combines the exceptional milling capabilities of the 5-axis machining centres with the typical turning performance of a vertical turning centre./ 03Turning and Milling on a single machining centre
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 with modularity and scalability in mind, this system offers the potential for future machine upgrades with new accessories/automations./ 04Optimised maintenance corner
Flymill can accommodate several types of tool stores, 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 store positions./ 05Tool changer incorporated in the column
Whether for milling or turning, Breton produces work tables in house using consolidated solutions such as hydrostatic technology plus innovative approaches including the use of Direct Drive motors, also on large size tables./ 06Vast range of rotary tables
