Roth Composite Machinery offers the carousel transfer machine BFK2/E3-Tr with two filling tools for manufacturing high-quality brushes and brooms. With a tailor-made automation level, the BFK2/E3-Tr ensures maximum production reliability. The innovative machine design processes all necessary single components, such as filaments, brush bodies and staple wire to a finished brush on one machine. The Roth transfer machine with carousel design is available with 3, 4 or 5 axes. It has three carrousel stations, a trimming and cleaning device (optional with flagging unit) fitted by cartesian transfer as well as a feeding function via conveyor belt. Furthermore, the user-friendly machine is equipped with a labeling device and a branding iron and features automated ejection and transportation via the conveyor belt.
High Process Safety – Especially When Using Natural Fibers
The 3-axes version is suitable for the production of brushes having a length of up to 350 millimeters. When using 4- and 5-axes machines, brushes and brooms with lengths of up to 600 millimetres can be manufactured. The innovative filling tool with patented RoAn technology serves allows for
smooth running and high production velocities. Due to the fully automated transfer between the working steps, the Roth transfer machine offers high process safety. An integrated trimming machine with two knife shaft units for the flow and return flow of the brushes serves for an optimal cutting result whereby individual geometries and trimming heights are freely programmable. Four lateral cleaning rollers enable a clean finish of the products. “All kinds of filaments, such as steel wire, synthetic filaments, natural fibers as well as animal hair, can be used. Especially the processing of natural fibers leads to excellent results,“ says Thomas Halbrucker, Sales Manager at Roth Composite Machinery.
Machine Concept and Control Provide Versatility
For 100 years, Roth Composite Machinery (formerly known as Schlesinger) has been developing, manufacturing and selling universal production machines for the brush industry. For the design of its brush-making machines, Roth uses its wealth of experience gained over the last hundred years. Thomas Halbrucker says, “For machine operators, our ergonomically perfected machines are absolutely convenient. A 19‘‘ touch screen allows a simple and clear operation and process control. An integrated brush visualization, the step-by-step program procedure and detailed parameter specifications make the production process transparent for the customers. We considered versatile settings for the intuitively operable navigation.”
He also noted project execution is flexible with the BFK2/E3-Tr – customer-provided applications can be integrated into the Roth machine concept.
The drives of the axes are realized by latest servo motors as 1-cable solution. An electro-pneumatic safety device serves for the protection and preservation of the drivers. The robust and service-friendly machine construction provide long maintenance intervals while utilizing a low-noise suction unit of approximately 70 decibels and nearly wear-free operation. Short setup times enable effective production processes. The machine is built for highest output quantities with great reliability and flexibility, while meeting the highest safety requirements.
