The official handover was made at the Interbrush fair in Freiburg, where customers were able to meet both Frank and his technical plant manager Jason Plohr on the Wöhler stand.
Latest developments they were able to show interested customers include the all new SHF 400, making its debut at the Interbrush show in Freiburg. A system specially designed for the flexible production of high density brush segments in disks with crimped wire. The system features servo driven technology for high production rate, integrated disk magazine and punching.
The segments produced are optimally balanced thanks to perfect wire distribution and the minimal use of metal parts ensures the lowest material costs.
The BBM 700 is a modular design brush body moulding machine for the production of brush bodies, end pieces and adapters for technical brushes. Basic contours, such as grooves or centrings, can easily be formed in the brush bodies. A single extruder serves up to 8 tool stations in any required sequence, meaning that no production time is lost for cooling the products in the tools.
Economic highlights include low investment costs for tool sets and the possible use of low-cost recycling material.
Representing new developments in the cutting and trimming of fill brushes in the multi functional trimming bench type MTB 1000, optimised for roll and disc brushes providing a particularly easy operation. Available options include not only custom contour trimming, but also the processing of plastic tubes: Tube lengthening; inner calibration and internal turning of ends.
An excellent example of our dedicated product development and improvement is the ZVA 600: The use of a new angle gear drive has drastically cut set-up times for new brush types. The new twist knot head allows waste-free production with low costs for consumables. Even the machine control has been optimised, making it more clearly structured and function-oriented.
The strip brush machine SBM 92 with its extensive range of optional modules allows the production of various types and styles of strip brushes. The modular design offers everything from a simple basic version up to a fully automatic production system with a production speed of up to 40 m/min.
We look forward to a successful partnership with Frank and would like to take the opportunity of thanking Brian Connors for his excellent service over the years.
