EcoBrush

Less broke thanks to new edge press brush

With the EcoBrush edge press brush, the outer layers of a full reel spool can be effectively fixed. Through effective utilization of the wound running meters, production can be increased.

The EcoBrush prevents outside layers from peeling away from the still rotating full reel spool after a web change and becoming unusable due to creasing, telescoping or shredding. The brush strips of the edge press brush are mounted on pivoted levers and are pressed to the full reel spool with pneumatic cylinders. The contact force can be set according to the requirements. For safe pivoting of the brushes, the diameters of the full reel spool and the new reel spool must be monitored. Detection takes place primarily by means of rotation angle encoders on the secondary arm.

The EcoBrush is attached on the operator and drive side of a full reel spool and fixes the outer layers on the way to the end position and during the slowing-down process. Formation of shreds is thus prevented, resulting in better runability and less cleaning outlay.
