Breton, a leader in the design and production of CNC machining centres has unveiled its latest technological solution, the Breton Hawx, which is said to guarantee robustness and precision for high-speed milling and trimming operations.
According to most users, the machines of this category available on the market today are subject to a sudden deterioration of precision and repeatability over time, and lack the robustness necessary to be exploited for the processing of light alloy materials. These are the main aspects on which Breton R&D department has worked to develop the new machine. The result is the Hawx which Breton says positions it at the top of its category and distinguishes itself for robustness, reliability and machining performance.
The innovative monoblock structure combined with the box-in-box architecture is the result of an intense research path, aimed at maximising the performance for customers in the aerospace, automotive, marine and general manufacturing sectors.
Breton Hawx is ideal for those who want to optimise their investment while ensuring a machining centre capable of offering high standards in terms of precision and reliability.
The right combination of robustness and stability makes it ideal for high-speed milling and trimming operations on elements with complex three-dimensional shapes made of different materials, from light alloys to composites, from resin for prototypes to models, moulds or contouring, thermoforms, tooling, jigs and more.
Thanks to the carefully designed monoblock structure, Hawx can be shipped already almost fully assembled, complete with wired electrical panel. Once positioned by the customer, it is necessary to mount only the front fairings and make a quick check of the functionality. After training the staff, Hawx is operational within a few days of delivery. The machine can be easily integrated into any workshop and it doesn’t require special foundations. Furthermore, it can be easily relocated to the customer's site should the layout change.
