Built on
your needs

The new Matrix E1 is here. It is the result of our restless research. We started from your needs and expectations, we added our know-how and we built your next machine.

Breton Matrix E1

5-axis vertical
machining centre

With a 2000x2500x800/1000 mm machining volume, it is particularly suitable for hi-feed roughing, semi-finishing and finishing operations on medium size parts made of resins, CFRP and composites but also steel and light alloys.

Reasons Why

Five reasons to choose Matrix E1

  • Best optimization of the ratio between machine size and axis strokes, i.e. the footprint efficiency ratio. The transversal arrangement of the layout (transversal stroke 2500 mm and longitudinal stroke 2000 mm) allows to push the machine rear side against the wall, improve the machine visibility to the operator and deliver the machine to the customer already assembled.

  • The thermo-symmetric structure along with the Thermal Shield technology considerably improves the control of the thermal expansion and allows reducing structural deformations without using expensive cooling systems. The direct motors for the axes movement remove the backlash and the vibrations caused by the belts; the Direct Drive motors for A and C-axis guarantee the necessary power when required. The head is equipped with large bearings to ensure the utmost vibration damping and the best positioning precision provided by the high-resolution integrated encoders; moreover, both torque motors and electrospindle are coolant-refrigerated.

  • This machining centre guarantees enough thrusts and rigidity to perform high-feed roughing and top-of-the-range semi-finishing and finishing operations. At the same time, it offers the ideal dynamics, speed, and accelerations for those who are looking for the highest production performances even on the most complex 3D shapes and in the extremely rigid composites.

  • Installation times and costs have been halved. The monobloc structure allows delivering the machine already assembled to the customer, considerably simplifying installation time on site. The structural rigidity just requires simple flat foundations, thus minimizing the use of anti-shrinkage cement and chemicals for ground anchoring.

  • The reduction of operating costs represents, of course, an added value. The kinematics and mechanisms lubrication has been completely reconceived, replacing the traditional systems with an advanced plant for lubricant control and distribution which prevent any leakage toward your parts. In this way, the most common problems such as part contaminations, dirt, dangerous vapors, and relevant maintenance costs are solved.
    Any variations in temperature are stabilized thanks to thermo-symmetrical structures and the patented Thermal Shield. The working area is covered with modular stainless steel panels which, combined with the most efficient dust extraction systems, allow keeping it clear and safe for the operators and also to extend the machine life.


Matrix E1 a shower of technical innovations

Rigidity becomes dynamic. Matrix E1 has an extremely robust monobloc structure to guarantee the necessary thrust and stiffness to perform high-feed roughing, top-of-the-range semi-finishing and finishing operations and, at the same time, to offer the ideal dynamic, speed and accelerations for those who are looking for the highest production performances.
