Depending on production requirements, it is possible to vary the number of cutting spindles.
The working cycle is fully automated and can be programmed from the control panel which is provided with colour “touch-screen” monitor and technologically advanced software featuring a user-friendly interface.
Upon request this cutting line can be supplied with a software option for optimising cutting operations.
The technically and mechanically advanced cutting units are rigidly fixed to purposely designed slides and are provided with vertical and transversal travel:
• A pneumatic actuator provides vertical travel and also allows the operator to exclude single spindle units.
• The transversal travel allows the sequential (or simultaneous - optional) motorized positioning of each single spindle along the beam. The spindle travels on guides in an oil bath protected by a labyrinth seal casing.
This system ensures the perfect parallelism of each single cut.
Upon request conveyor belts for removing the crushed stone scraps can be installed.
The beam travels at a perfect right angle on guides enclosed in an oil bath and protected by a labyrinth seal casing.
Beam motion is controlled by an inverter-controlled motor and two trapezoidal screw synchronised by a shaft.
A pusher/aligner for squaring up the strips before cutting is installed at the front end of the machine.
This system guarantees the perfect geometry of right-angled workpieces.
This system consists of a scanner for imaging the single slab to be cut and of a computer which controls and manages the entire cutting line.
• Work order management based on preset priority.
• The option of excluding and removing any surface defects from the cutting template before cutting.
• The possibility of recuperating uncut areas of the slab to cut pieces to the size of the maximum rectangle shape of the scraps.
• The possibility of recuperating unused areas of the slab which are then cut to standard market shapes and sizes and kept in stock for turnaround orders.
• The possibility of identifying the finished workpieces which are displayed on a PC located in the unloading area and printing off labels which are manually affixed to the piece.
• The option of printing labels and automatically affixing them to the slabs in correspondence to the workpieces to be cut before actually cutting.
• The possibility of printing a code number directly on the edge of the cut workpiece utilising an ink-jet printer.
The spindle units in this configuration are driven by inverter controlled motors mounted on each single spindle unit.
Optional Accessory for slab loading and unloading operations
Usually the slabs to be cut are loaded utilising an automatic loader provided with suction cups.
Breton will suggest the best solution depending on user requirements.
Unloading the workpieces can be either manual or automatic without operator intervention utilising an unloader provided with suction cups.
