Breton Hawx is delivered preassembled with a prewired electrical cabinet. Once the customer has positioned the machine, only the front housings remain to be fitted. The entire assembly and start-up procedure takes just 5 days: in the first 3 days the machine is unloaded, anchored, and completed, start-up takes place on day 4 while day 5 is reserved for training. Hawx can be easily relocated on the customer's site to accommodate possible changes to the production layout.
High-dynamic 5 axis vertical gantry monobloc machining centre
The right combination of robustness and stability makes the machine ideal for milling and trimming operations at high speed on parts with complex 3D shapes made of lightweight alloy, resin, or composite materials.

The robustness and repeatability that was lacking
Built to exceed the usual limitations of its category: reduced robustness and poor repeatability in time.
Thanks to the optimised design, Breton Hawx is stiffer and more stable while also guaranteeing an excellent size to work area ratio. The machine can be easily inserted in all types of workshops as it arrives already assembled and tested; it does not require special foundations and start-up times are reduced to the minimum.
The arc welded monolithic load-bearing structure is the core of the machine, imparting robustness and allowing easy handling.
The unique nature of the box-in-box architecture guarantees a marked increase in stiffness of the bridge-carriage-RAM unit and combines with the high strength of the new Hornet head to greatly increase the rate of removal and accuracy, all with the maximum dynamics.
The innovative offset geometry of the head also makes it possible to increase machinable volumes while minimising the machine's outside dimensions, simultaneously improving access to the workpiece.
Heads available on Hawx
Spindles that can be installed on Hornet
- / 01Designed for delivery fully assembled
Hornet, thanks to the double offset of the A axis with respect to the RAM centre, allows you to machine wider workpieces with the same X and Y linear strokes, both with the tool vertical and with the A axis at 90°.
The generous rotation of the A axis (-105° +135°) enables undercut machining, reducing the need to reposition the workpiece, with a consequent increase in precision and elimination of a second set-up phase./ 02Hornet, unique design angle head
There are several work table set-up solutions available: flat table with threaded holes, vacuum table, table with with mesh gratings and collection bins./ 03Several work table solutions
The automatic 8-cell tool store, placed outside the work area, makes tool loading/unloading completely safe for the operator, with no need to suspend the work cycle. Thanks to the solution's modularity, capacity can be easily increased up to a maximum of 64 cells./ 04The intelligent tool store
The box-in-box architecture of the bridge-carriage-RAM unit guarantees an increase in stiffness to achieve greater accuracy and repeatability through time, also in heavy duty machining operations./ 05Box in Box Architecture
Allows in line energy recovery during braking, so there's no need to dissipate energy on the braking resistor./ 06Braking energy recovery
