Paragon - The new multiwire machine designed and built in Breton
Paragon is the new multiwire machine entirely designed and built in Breton and is the result of all the experience and know how acquired after installing over 200 Breton/Bidese multiwire machines all over the world. In the multiwire sector, our Paragon has become a “model of excellence”.
Paragon multi-wire and 5.3mm wire: a winning combination
The Breton PARAGON multi-wire machines are ideal for cutting granite and marble blocks with diamond wires of 5.3mm in diameter. The minimum fatigue of the wires is guaranteed thanks to the ingenious 5-pulley triangular geometry, all of which are 1,000mm wide.
Additionally, adjustable winding rollers with motorized motion allow a closer positioning to the saw blade so as to guarantee the highest rolling speed and the greatest cutting precision, resulting in a better final quality of the cut slabs.
Breton is a pioneer in granite sawing with 5.3mm diameter diamond wire, starting 3 years ago at Mondial Granit. The company has 6 Breton multi-wire machines, three of which are PARAGON (Paragon 600, 1000 and 2100). These machines systematically saw using 5.3mm wire.
Breton has also been pioneer in marble blocks sawing with its multi-wire machines, starting in 2014 with Toscoveneta in the province of Treviso (Italy), then with Marbrerie Design & Objet (Tunisia) which regularly use the 6.3mm wire, then with Halmann Vella (Malta) with a 5.3mm wire PARAGON 600, and GDA (Carrara, Italy) with a 5.3mm wire PARAGON 1800.
Paragon's key features
Isosceles triangular wire geometry with just five transmission (drums/pulleys), the minimum number compatible with the necessary presence of the wire driving drums.
All the drums, including the wire stretching pulleys, have a diameter of 1.000 mm.
Adjustable wire driving drums with motor-driven movement so as to be always close to the block.
Designed to maximize the operator ergonomic comfort:
• Easy access to the machine with practical staircases and gangways
• Fast and easy wire change and positioning
• Immediate and intuitive operator interface of the touch screen for machine management
Wire driving drums
Breton patented the independent, motorized positioning of the two wires driving drums, available as an option. Each wire driving drum can get as close to the block as 60 cm, therefore they can be positioned nearest the block. This means that:
- the cutting quality is always the best
- the down feed is always the fastest
