A brush making machine can create a wide variety of different kinds of brushes including but not limited to: hairbrushes, bathroom brushes, pet hair combs, nail brushes and other cosmetic brushes. A typical high-quality brush can have a number of tufts, a metal handle and a rubber seal that holds the bristles in place. Some types of brushes can be made with either natural or synthetic bristles. Natural bristles are typically made from animal hair such as pig or human hair, but synthetic brushes can be made from nylon, polyester and other synthetic fibers. The type of bristle used to make a brush can affect the final appearance and cost of the finished product.
In addition to being able to produce a brush with various sizes and shapes, a high quality brush-making machine can also offer a range of features that will improve production efficiency and reduce operator labor. For example, some models are designed to automatically trim the finished brushes ensuring that they meet strict finishing standards. This process is known as deburring and it can significantly improve the finish of the brush, particularly when a precise edge radius is required.
Other brush-making machines can be equipped with a carrousel design which allows the entire manufacturing process from single component to complete brush to be performed on one machine. This is especially useful for larger scale operations and can save time, space and money when compared to a traditional vertical tufting machine. A Roth transfer machine is also available which can be fitted with flagging units, cleaners and other specialized brushes to allow it to be adapted to specific applications.
Another brush making machine is designed specifically for the production of brooms and push brooms. This machine can be fitted with rotary-blade trimmers, flagging units and cleaners to produce a high quality finish for any brush. It can also be fitted with a cleaning system to remove any loose bristles from the finished brushes. The SHARP 2L can be used to trim flat brooms and brushes up to 900 mm (36″) in length.
A technical brush maker has demanded a brush making machine that can be operated at a high speed to ensure a high yield of quality brushes. A machine constructed in accordance with the present invention permits this by incorporating a mechanism for forming both the tuft anchor and the tuft strands which can be driven within a set of jaws. This arrangement has been found to be capable of permitting higher operating speeds since it avoids any interference between the advancing jaws and the rapidly reciprocating knife which must clear the tuft deflector. The result is a very reliable, versatile and highly efficient brush-making machine. It can be used to manufacture all kinds of brushes and fine brushware and is also suitable for high volume production. It is also available in both manual and fully automatic versions. It is also very easy to maintain and operate.
