Breton ContourFive - the present and the future of ornamental sculpture


The natural stone manufacturing technology – marble and granite – has made strides over the last years thanks to 5-axis working centers, allowing to obtain complex architectural products that were not conceivable until a few years ago.



ù



Thanks to its vertical travel of 700/1200 mm, Breton CONTOURFIVE is the ideal machine for architectural and funerary art as well as for those processing which require a deep dishing out; It therefore offers the users the possibility of performing different and complex machining operations wich would otherwise require several machines: 
  • shaping utilising the saw blade to get large pieces with complex shape. 
  • shaping and dishing out utilising millers. 
  • contouring utilising shaping tools. 
  • sawing utilising the saw blade. 
  • turning of columns with shaped profiles or machining of position for the saw blade to create a twisted effect all along the surface. 


The software "Breton SmartCam MODELLING" has been developed to simulate the Breton CONTOURFIVE when working by dividing the machining centre into different parts: 
- machine structure, 
- axes, 
- spindle, 
- tool-store, 
- tools. 

 The software imports the file generated by the CAM program (ISO code) for the piece to be machined and simulates the entire machining cycle, thus detecting any possible impact which may occur. The software is installed in the pc of the buyer.

This is what a Breton ContourFive 5-axis working center can do:

 



The accessory "Store for saw blade" allows taking/storing automatically the bladewith a maximum diameter of 1000mm. The advantages are the reduction of troughs and the automation of the whole process.







With the accessory "Lathe" is possible to produce columns and twisted effect details with workable sizes: max. diameter 960/ max. length 3200mm.






The opportunity to obtain architectural elements reducing production time, material waste and marginal error makes this machinery a must – have for all manufacturers.
At the same time, the advantage for the final costumer is to have a 360° customizable product , requiring less time and money than those required by a craftsman.





































Breton Contourfive gives you the chance to turn any idea into reality.


























































For more information and prices, on the 5-axes stone working center Breton Contourfive, contact mail@breton.it.
We’ll get back to you promptly.

Thank you for the attention and best regards.

Contourbreton NC 300 EVO - NEW accessories FREEPASS and EASYLOCK

When you buy a new Countorbreton NC 300 and NC 300 EVO, you always have a wide range of opportunities to personalize it to improve its use and adapt it to your needs and desires.
Choosing the Contourbreton with ROBOCUP bench will allow you to use special Robocup passive suction cups that do not require a power supply. This system will provide the necessary suction directly from the bench based on the position of the cups, without the need for tubes or manual taps.(EASYLOCK).

You can choose whether your operator, guided by a laser projector, can place the suction cup on the right position or you can deliver the suction cup to the machine that will place it in the desired position, or let the machine operate in full autonomy.
The only thing your Contourbreton will ask is that you have washed your bench after you've unloaded the previously finished pieces.

In case of serial production orders of countertops that requires the same dimensions, you can equip your Contourbreton with EASYLOCK.

This system consists of a fixed suction cup bar located on the back of the machine, and a second one on the front, with micrometric adjustment.


When the workpiece width changes, it is sufficient to move the micrometric bar with its suction cups by simply deactivating or activating the suction cups mounted, which will slide the bar with the help of two perpendicular rails.

If you'd like to receive a quotation about FREEPASS or EASYLOCK please feel free to write to mail@breton.it.
We'll get back to you straight away!

Thank you for the attention and best regards.
