Breton 5-axis CNC Machining Center - Steel, Aluminium, Resin and Composite Machining

The right choice for medium, large and very large CNC composite machining.

Breton 5-axis CNC FLYMILL machining centers provide high-speed composite machining.

Ideal for milling a variety of materials such as steel, aluminium, composites and resins.

FLYMILL 1000, 1300, 1600 and 2000:

The main difference between these four models is vertical and horizontal travel.

2,500mm, 4,000mm and 3,500mm. Longitudinal travel spans from 2,000mm to 8,000mm+. Complete, dimensioned table. Structural rigidity. Operational travel distances.

Operate in a single area or in a shuttle configuration.

The linear axis speed is 40m per min and can reach up to 60m per min.

The twist heads, with a continuous rotation of axis C,  axis A rotation from  -105° up to +120°, rotational speed up to 100 rpm and 40kW electrospindle.

Ideal for complex workpieces as it operates along the 3 dimensions at the same time. Machine operation and programming is simple to use.

It is possible to machine complex undercuts without repositioning the workpiece. This is due to the axis A rotating 120 degrees.

These machines have a compact design if limited space is available, yet they still have big work areas

Rotational speeds of up to 40,000 rpm and 137Nm torque

Four models in the FLYMILL range for horizontal and vertical composite machining

Thermally stabilised electro spindles, designed for composite machining

Electro-spindles

Electro-spindles are perfect for:

High-speed machining for rough milling and finishing. Composite materials, light alloys, thin steel and super-alloys.

Various high-performing electro-spindles are available for the range of heads. They reach rotational speeds of up to 40,000 rpm and 137Nm torque (continuous operation).

All electro-spindles include:

Thermal stabilisation. Software designed to compensate for any thermal expansion and drift. This ensures the greatest of machining precision for different operations and conditions.

Extras

Customisations include:

Various applications for the aerospace and automotive industries, die manufacturing and precision engineering, etc. A dust extraction system fitted to the spindle’s nose. Automatic tool magazine for up to 150 tools. Top folding closure to enclose the work area. Radiofrequency workpiece probe. Laser tool setup, etc.
