Kinger features process water collection by means of a galvanised steel sheet secured to the bottom of the base frame in order to route most of the process water into the foundation drains.
Horizontal edge polisher
Breton Kinger is the advanced horizontal edge polisher for straight edges with bevelled or rounded corners, equipped with a slat conveyor system for finishing straight edges of marble, granite, engineered stone or ceramic workpieces.

The ideal solution for perfect edges
With its solid spindles, special rubber covered slat conveyor and vast range of accessories available, Kinger is the ideal edge polishing machine for marble fabshops. Kinger allows creation of bevelled or rounded profiles on one or both edges, gauging of the front and rear of the workpiece, and polishing of edges to perfection.The machine can be equipped with additional spindles to hone the band of material adjacent to the polished edge.
- / 01Integral water collection tank
The exclusive workpiece transport system with a 60 cm wide rubber faced slat conveyor and pneumatic pressers with 82mm diameter rollers ensure greater stability of the workpiece during the process.
The pressers are installed with the rotation axis at right angles to the material feeding direction so they do not apply force or rub against the surface of the material upon which they rest./ 02Slat conveyor system
Oscillating hydraulic system (+90° - 90°) to create R3 rounds on edges.
The oscillating polishing unit composed of six spindles allows the composition of the correct scale of polishing grits for all materials.
By keeping the six spindles fixed in the horizontal position, machine productivity can be increased in case of products with bevelled edges, because the oscillating spindles are used in conjunction with the six fixed horizontal spindles./ 03Oscillating system for rounded corners
Ergonomic material loading and unloading station that is completely safe for the operator.
LED illumination of grinding wheels for improved visual supervision by the operator.
Double emergency stop pull-cords at machine inlet and outlet for safe stopping whenever necessary.
Safety microswitches to monitor correct closure of the rear guards./ 04Operator safety
Manual controls for spindle selection, working pressure adjustment, edge touch probes located in a raised and ergonomic position.
Specific processing recipes can be saved for the various materials in production.
Potential for motor driven positioning of the gauging spindles with position setting display, and for control of up/down movements of the spindle with vertical disc for cutting stopped rodding grooves./ 05Practical and ergonomic
Siemens PLC installed in the electrical cabinet located at the rear of the line where it is protected from water spray and vibrations.
Electrical components from the top manufacturers in the sector.
Large size electrical cabinet to ensure better access for checking and maintenance tasks and plenty of space for future additions to extend the machine's capabilities./ 06High quality electrical components
Management of interrupted edge processing cycles.
The machine structure has sufficient available space to allow integration of the following devices in the future:
• gauging spindle at infeed
• two vertical pneumatic heads for machining downstands
• spindle with drip groove or rodding groove disc at outfeed/ 07Additional functions
Breton Kinger can also be installed in an evolved fabshop where an external PC (not connected to the machine) can be used to update the progress of production orders and view process information concerning parts to be processed using the Breton Xpress Top software suite (can be purchased separately)./ 08The 4.0 edge polisher
