WIDE TRAVELS, SAFETY, & ACCESSIBILITY

Wide working travel of 3,200/3,800 mm in X-axis.

The Compact version 1.950mm, the Wide version 2.300 mm, and the Extreme version 4.000 mm in Y axis and they are all at 300 mm in the Z vertical axis.

The Forte HD 80 comes with manually opening doors with safety interlock switches.

The worktable is made from a single piece of a special quartz based polymeric material, Metalquartz®.

Large doors and a lower worktable with an integrated step offer the best front access design in the industry.

DESIGNED TO PERFORM

The strong electro-welded structure ensures the rigidity needed for any kind of machining.

DRIVEN BY SIEMENS BRUSHLESS MOTORS

Racks-and-pinions system and Siemens brushless motors drive the mobile bridge and the spindle unit.

A gantry system drives the mobile bridge. Linear guides with recirculating balls and precision encoders assure the movement accuracy.

POWERFUL BRETON SPINDLE 

Powerful spindle manufactured by Breton with closed circuit, liquid cooling, three ceramic bearings with large diameter.  Featuring high performance, 30 Nm with 14.500 rpm, specially designed and built for working with natural stone, engineered stone, and stoneware.

 
USER-FRIENDLY CNC UNIT

Forte HD 80 incorporates the ultimate generation of the Siemens Sinumerik 840 D SL computer numerical control, CNC. A digital control compatible with PC architecture and a PC based on Windows 7 operating system. The control panel is swiveling, provided with a keypad and a color touchscreen with a USB port. 

A portable button panel duplicates the main machine controls; axes management + handwheel, emergency stop, etc.  The operator can carry out and closely monitor all the delicate operations directly on the workpiece to be machined.

BRETON SMART CAM COUNTERTOPS:
CAD/CAM SOFTWARE FOR THE PRODUCTION OF COUNTERTOPS ON CONTOURING CENTERS
 

The CAM module allows the following:

• Cutting with disc
• Contouring, profiling, drilling, milling and emptying with milling or shaped tools
• Polishing of inclined planes
• Milling and polishing of grooves on inclined planes
 3D engravingof Windows True Type characters on horizontal or vertical flat surfaces
• Automatic calculation of toolpaths based on a pre-compiled technology table
• Rapid modification of path entrances and exits tool.

The CAD module allows:

• Create two-dimensional drawings with relative dimensioning 
• Import drawings in DXF and DWG format from external CAD or template detectors 
• Program automatically and view the arrangement of the suction cups on the workbench 
• Interface with the software of the possible laser projector for the arrangement of the suction cups on the workbench.

The SOLIDA 3D SIMULATION module:

• Checks for possible collisions between the tool-piece and the machine-tool The software works in a Windows environment, it is intuitive and easy to use. 

 

ROBOT FOR ROBOCUP

forte cnc router
It is possible to further improve the performance and timing of the Forte HD 80 Robocup by equipping it with an anthropomorphous robot for handling workpieces equipped with a vacuum gripping device.

The robotic application is implemented by Breton in collaboration with the company Optidrive, who specializes in the integration and software of the Kuka anthropomorphic robots. 

The robotized application allows it to automatically place even large pieces on the suction cups (up to 3,400 x 1,600 m) taking the pieces from the feeding roller conveyor, in just 34 seconds.

At the end of the work, the robot places the processed slab on the unloading roller conveyor, unloading the scraps and automatically washing the worktop.
