Breton FUEGO 10 axis - Shaping machine

How beautiful! 
It's hard to believe that workpieces with such a complex shape can be manufactured, all the more so if you consider they are produced by a MACHINE!

I'm not kidding, the name of the machine at issue is
Breton FUEGO Multiaxis

The evolution of programming techniques and numerical controls was a turning point for the diamond wire machines used to profile architectural components since it rather simplified the way of producing precious and value-added stone workpieces.

With almost 30 years of experience in the usage of numerical controls, Breton was the only company in the world with the ability to put such experience at the customers' disposal through the design of a ground-breaking, high-performance multi-axis wire machine.

Here you can see the FUEGO of OSCAR DAFFE.

That's how FUEGO Multiaxis was born, a machine for cutting blocks and billets with a diamond wire, ideal for producing cylindrical/tapered columns, casings for columns, shaped and rough-hewed components for interior decoration (requiring 4 geometrical axes: "Z" vertical axis, wire inclination angle, linear displacement of the block-holding cart and rotation of the block-holding cart) very precisely and easily thanks to its 8 interpolated axes to which 2 axes with motorized positioning are added.

Here you can see the FUEGO of SAVEMA.

The most critical issue in this type of machines is often connected to the wire inclination, in fact large inclination angles can be achieved only going well below the ground level.

Breton solved this problem pretty well by placing a cart with 2 pulleys 1.000 mm in diameter on each column.

The two carts slide independently, therefore it is possible to incline the wire going less than 30 cm below the ground level.

Well, that’s all for today, thanks for your attention.
