Strangbetong have purchased n.5 Breton ContourFive NC 700

Strängbetong, part of the Consolis group the largest European manufacturer of precast concrete products, has eight production sites across Sweden and employs 1,200 people. This company has chosen Breton to provide and supply a plant with “interpolated” technology to process aggregate steps.  
This plant will be installed in the production site located in Herrljunga, Sweden, a site with 220 employees and the largest company  in the Strängbetong group, specialist in manufacturing precast walls and stairs.  
The "turnkey" plant consists of 5  latest generation ContourFive NC 700 NC machines  with the possibility of incorporating up to 8 machines, and an automatic workpiece loading / unloading system.
ContourFive NC 700 is a CNC shaping, contouring, cutting and turning centre with five interpolated axes and a fixed worktable, that offers the users the possibility of performing multiple and complex machining operations which would otherwise require several machines:
- sawing of slabs and small blocks into workpieces utilising the saw blade
- shaping of either large or small blocks utilising the saw blade to get large pieces with complex shape, such as capitals, banisters, tanks, fireplace components, etc.
- shaping and dishing out utilising millers to get shower trays, sinks, vases, bas-reliefs, engravings, etc.
- contouring utilising shaped tools to produce statues, kitchen tops, tombstones, components for funerary art, etc.
- turning of columns with shaped profiles or machining of columns to create a twisted effect all along the surface.
