Breton Ultrix

5 axis vertical machining centre with trunnion table for milling and turning with high power and high precision

A robust and stable Metalquartz base frame and a dedicated boring bar for a full range of operations on a single machining centre. Ideal for roughing, semi-finishing and finishing operations on superalloys, steel, lightweight alloy, or composites.

Reasons why

Multitasking to have all work phases performed on a single machine

The trunnion table is among the largest on the market

The Breton Ultrix series is ideal for milling and turning of medium-size/large workpieces in titanium, superalloys, steel, lightweight alloys, and special composites. Developed on gantry architecture with a gantry type moving bridge, the machine has a trunnion table and independent boring bar.

A machining centre for high speed milling and turning that delivers high performance with absolute precision while also being able to handle large size workpieces. With strokes of up to 1,700 x 1,700 x 1,000 mm and maximum swing diameter over the bed of 1,600 mm, the Ultrix E3 is our largest trunnion table machine. Painstaking attention was awarded to the layout during the design stage, with the aim of achieving the smallest possible machine footprint.
A perfect solution for the aerospace industry

Ultrix is the best solution for machining aero engine components: the vertical spindle facilitates workpiece positioning, the trunnion table gives better access and allows the part to be cleaned with ease and removal of chips by rotating the A axis.

Up to two angle heads can be housed at the rear of the machine, with fully automatic loading and unloading cycles. The head body is clamped hydraulically to the RAM to allow transmission of all the available motor spindle torque.

Easy access and maintenance

The top bellows open completely, facilitating workpiece loading/unloading operations with overhead cranes. The work area is fully clad in stainless steel to make it bright, easy to clean, and impervious to erosion caused by machining chips. All the axes are pressurised to prevent infiltration of contaminants. Accessibility has been significantly improved, allowing the operator within just 15 cm of the turning table.
