SAVEMA choses Breton

Savema, a leading facility in Carrara, well-known and highly appreciated worldwide in the field of architecture and stone materials.
Breton, the world leader in the production of machines and plants for stone processing.

Luigi Piacentini of SAVEMA and Dario Toncelli of BRETON
After many years, Breton and Savema resume their cooperation. The owners of the two companies have recently signed an agreement for the supply of an innovative and high-tech machine, Breton Fuego Multiaxis, a shaping machine using diamond wires and with 8 interpolated axes capability.
Savema was established in 1975 by the Piacentini and Volterrani families and soon became one of the leading companies worldwide for the production, trade and supply of marble, granite and ornamental stones.

Savema’s core business is the production of architectural stone components (for both interior and exterior applications) designed for sizeable projects throughout the world, including those with a high artistic content, as well as the trade of marble, granite, onyx, travertine and stone slabs for international wholesalers and dealers.

This most innovative machine complements the three Bidese shaping wire machines that have been working for many years at Savema’s production plant to their complete satisfaction.  For those who don’t know, Breton acquired Bidese line of business concerning the production of diamond wire machines in 2011.
Savema’s fleet will therefore be complemented by a high-performance multi-axis machine, which employs new programming and numerical control techniques and whose key factor is innovation. Fuego will enable the company to easily produce valuable and extremely complex workpieces.

Savema SpA

Savema meets the requirements of a more and more demanding architectural market every day - commented Dario Toncelli, who owns Breton together with his brother, in the picture with Luigi Piacentini, Savema’s owner - Our 30 years of experience in the use of numerical controls enabled us to develop a ground-breaking and high-tech machine for cutting blocks and billets, ideal for producing cylindrical/tapered columns, casing for columns, shaped and rough-hewed components for interior decoration and extremely complex elements – something unattainable until today!

Breton Fuego Multiaxis also faces machining jobs requiring 4 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.
Breton SpA
Thanks to the technical solutions adopted for Breton Fuego Multiaxis, even one of the greatest problems this type of machines has to deal with, has been overcome: the wire inclination that usually compels to go well below the ground level in order to achieve sizeable inclination angles. 
Breton solved this problem pretty well by placing a cart with 2 pulleys 1.000 mm in diameter on each column while the two carts move independently. In this way, it is possible for Breton Fuego Multiaxis to reach considerable inclination angles going only 30 cm below the ground level.

There’s more to Levibreton than meets the eye!

A revolution is underway for those who polish marble and granite slabs. 
At present, four technological innovations complement the polishing machines that led Breton and the customers which purchase them worldwide to success, four innovations that provide many benefits especially due to the application of new technological systems.  

Going into details: 
- Shine Master
- Waxing Machine CG200/4
- Imageplus
- APP, Applicator of Polymer Points

Shine Master
Breton latest invention: a device that measures automatically the gloss degree of the slab surface providing the precise gloss order of magnitude, which is visualized on the machine display. 

Thanks to its reflection system, Shine Master, (installed at the back of the machine) provides a qualitative control of the outgoing slabs; if the gloss degree does not fall within the preset standard, an alarm promptly warns the operator

Waxing Machine CG200/4
Once the Levibreton polisher has accomplished its task, the waxing machine’s duty is crucial in order to achieve a perfect finish of marble and granite workpieces.

CG200/4, is provided with a slab reader with photoelectric barrier for the automatic adjustment of the beam travel and the automatic lifting/lowering of the spindles.  
The machine structure is highly rigid, yet easily accessible to the operators; it is equipped with 3 large vessels (3.5 litres) with level gauges that can be filled with different waxes. Thanks to the high capacity of the vessels, the machine has an extended autonomy.

The waxing machine is very simple to be operated and tuned up: the operator is just required to adjust the width of the slabs currently being processed and the timers calculating the correct amount of wax and all work is done! 

Tracking the slabs required for a project, extracting them with an overhead crane, showing them to the customers, placing them again on their original position: all this is possible with one click, or better with Imageplus, the system for acquiring extra high resolution photos of natural and engineered stone slabs, filing them, codifying and labelling the slabs, which is entirely made in Breton

Thanks to an extra high resolution camera with LED lighting system that renders the real colours of the material, Imageplus takes photos that can be instantly displayed and files them in a database where additional info linked to each slab are also available, such as type of material, colour, thickness, real and “commercial” dimensions which are set according to selected parameters

APP (Applicator of Polymer Points): 
Breton conceived a device that applies streaks or points of thermoplastic polymer on the slab polished surface before slabs are automatically unloaded. 

What for? Simply to protect the polished face of the slabs when they are stored and handled arranged in a stack since even a small residue (such as a simple grain of marble or granite) could scratch and spoil the slab.
Using the APP automatic applicator, you don’t run this risk anymore: it is indeed the most effective alternative to the traditional polyethylene film but with no problems and costs for waste disposal. 

In this way, the latter section of the polishing line is complete. Once again, Breton focus on technology and innovation as stated by its slogan: Driven by Innovation

Why don’t you use the Web to promote your beautiful slabs?

Boost your business by publishing the pictures of your slabs to the Internet through Pinterest.

Hello everyone,
Some of you probably wonder about what Pinterest is ? 

Pinterest is a social network founded by Evan Sharp, Ben Silbermann and Paul Sciarra in 2010, where pictures, videos and images can be shared. . .  (wikipedia)

Using Pinterest, you can upload, save and publish pictures taken by ImagePlus or a digital camera to the website, pinning them to the board devoted to images, therefore creating photo books (boards) with the pictures of your slabs quickly and easily.

The stored pictures enhancing the beauty and quality of your products will be easily accessible to any device, besides being a useful online image file where a variety of additional info can be stored as well. 

You may save images on different boards classified by type of material, country of origin or type of application and your customers will see them on their PC, Smartphone or tablet.

Exploit ImagePlus to the full, sign up with Pinterest and boost your business by publishing the pictures of your slabs. 

If you are interested in this new way to promote your slabs, we will be glad to send you the instructions on how Pinterest works.
Write to for receiving simple instructions: you’ll be ready in 5 minutes?
Well, that’s all for today, thanks for your attention.
