Technology

• CHATTER FREE

• ACCURATE BRUSH ENGAGEMENT ON STRIP FOR MAXIMUM BRUSH ECONOMY

• BRUSH DRESSING – MANUAL OR AUTOMATIC

• ACCURATE GRAPHICS TO SHOW BRUSH SURFACE ENGAGEMENT

• QUICK BRUSH CHANGE

Chatter

The strip surface must not show chatter marks from brushing! A well-designed machine will have rigid, torsion-free frame holding bearings and positioning devices. This is the result of experience in designing, building and operating these machines.

Maintenance

We are frequently told by process line maintenance personnel about the difficulty of changing brushes or bearings on their equipment as well as component replacement. This is due, in part, to the retirement of the old guard, and the inexperienced replacements.

As machine builders, we are sensitive to the task of designing problem areas of the past out of future machines.

Performance

We pay attention to brush performance and the effective use of abrasive and nonabrasive media. Whether non-woven or bristle, we design the brush for their specific applications to maximize cleaning and use of the available media.
