Large selection, infinite uses
Our cleaning brushes are used in an extremely broad range of scenarios to meet a variety of specific needs. For instance, the twisted brush with sheathed wire and polyamide, i.e. nylon bristles, is used to clean a particular tube in dental technology as well as to deburr plastic parts after injection moulding. To facilitate your selection of base materials, we will gladly provide you with individual advice and develop an ideal combination of bristles and wire to ensure that your brush functions precisely according to your wishes.
Perfect craftsmanship│ Creating twisted brushes in 3 steps
No matter whether a brush is designed for technical or medical uses, the basic configuration always consists of two components: twisted wire and bristles.
Many others are added (through individual modification at the head or foot of the twisted brush) due to the various combinations of materials and production methods.
This results in almost endless application scenarios.
1.) Two to four wires, i.e. one wire bent into the shape of a hairpin (the subsequent brush body), are placed in a turning device in one or several rows.
2.) The bristles (brushes, wire or synthetic materials) are inserted inside the twisted wire.
3.) The turning device twists the wires either clockwise or counter-clockwise until the bristles can withstand even the toughest demands.
The body of our brushes can consist of thin and elastic wire, which means they can easily reach even the most inaccessible points.
