Savema chooses Breton

21 November, 2014
After many years, Savema and  Breton resume their cooperation. The owners of the two companies have recently signed an agreement for the supply of an innovative and high-tech machine, Fuego Multiaxis, a shaping machine using diamond wires and with 10 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 meets the requirements of a more and more demanding architectural market every day - commented Dario Toncelliwho owns Breton together with his brother, in the picture with Luigi PiacentiniSavema’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!

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.
Thanks to the technical solutions adopted for 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 Fuego Multiaxis to reach considerable inclination angles going only 30 cm below the ground level.
