Brush making machine is a specialized type of industrial machinery used to manufacture brushes and other types of fine brushware. These machines are able to produce large volumes of high quality, durable products using a variety of different materials. This includes natural and synthetic fibers, as well as a number of other specialty materials. Brush making machines are available in a wide variety of sizes and configurations, and can be customized to suit a specific application. They can also be equipped with a variety of options, such as a spool feed or puck feed of the bristles.
Typically, brush making machines are used in the production of cosmetics and other consumer products. In addition, they can be used in the manufacture of medical and dental equipment. These machines can also be used to create other kinds of brushware, such as paint roller handles and gripper inserts. In order to ensure that the finished product meets customer requirements, these machines must be carefully constructed and designed. In addition, they must be able to produce brushes with minimal maintenance and downtime.
The present invention provides a brush making machine capable of producing a high percentage yield of quality brushes. The machine is operable at high speed and able to accommodate a variety of brush shapes. Its innovative structural design allows for a reduction in operator labour, while increasing machine efficiency. The new design also increases the safety of the machine and its process.
An example of a brush making machine according to the invention is shown in FIG. 5. It comprises a pair of reciprocating jaws 31 and 32 secured to plate 33 which is slidably mounted in the frame block 34. The ends of the jaws are movable toward and away from a brush back held in a holder 12. A block 35 is secured to plate 33 and connected by means of member 37 to a crank arm 38. Suitable driving means are used to operate the crank arm to lower the jaws toward the brush back each time it is positioned with one of its apertures under the jaws for tufting purposes.
When the jaws are lowered, an anchor wire is placed in contact with the bristle strands and cut to form an anchor to be moved into contact with a needle for tufting. The tuft deflector, which is movable in two directions for freeing a tuft therefrom as the machine operates to set tufts in different patterns, is provided with an improved camming mechanism to control its operation.
Once the tufts have been seated, the anchor wire and needle are raised and the table 14 is shifted so that a new aperture in the brush back is positioned under the jaws. The jaws and needle are then advanced to repeat the above described operations.
The Roth transfer machine as 3- and 4-axes versions are suited for the production of brushes and brooms with lengths up to 350 millimetres. A new filling tool with patented RoAn technology and a fully automated transfer system serve for excellent production velocities. The trimming machine is fitted with a flagging unit and cleaning device, and the processing of all necessary single components up to a finished brush can be accomplished on one single machine.
