Brush making machine are designed to make brush heads of different shapes and sizes. They are used for a wide variety of purposes. From the simplest to the most complex, these machines can handle almost any type of material. They can also produce brushes with a wide range of bristle sizes and types. These machines can be divided into two categories: household and industrial technical brush making machine. The former are usually small and can only be used in home environments, while the latter is larger and has more features.
Brush-making machines are available in a wide variety of configurations and can be found in all kinds of industries. They can even be made to fit the specifications of a specific customer. In addition, many of these machines are very easy to operate. However, it is important to understand how these machines work before purchasing one. It is also important to know how to properly care for your brush-making machine so that it will last for as long as possible.
During the years we have seen an increasing demand from technical brush makers for solutions that increase the flexibility of their production equipment. A key factor in this is the ability to switch easily between drilling/filling and tufting operations without stopping the machine or interrupting its working cycle. This led to the development of our GIOTTO machine. This vertical tufting machine has been totally redesigned to offer the best compromise between productivity, ease of use and maintenance, versatility and low investment cost.
As illustrated in FIG. 2, the tuft setting apparatus of this machine comprises a pair of jaws 31 and 32 secured to plate 33 which is slidably mounted in frame block 34. The jaws are shifted downward toward and away from a brush back having an aperture aligned with one of the jaws for tufting purposes. During this operation the anchor wire and driver needle are lowered into the aperture so that the anchor forms a bristle strand in the aperture. The strand is then driven against and against a stop member which severs the strand to the desired length.
The deflector 120 of the nozzle is positioned so that it surrounds the ends of the jaws 31, 32 to prevent interference therewith by previously set tufts. When the nozzle is lowered for repeated operation, suitable drive means operates to shift the table 14 and position another aperture in the back such as back 22 against the jaws 31, 32. The solenoid 182 is deenergized and spring biasing thereof (not shown) returns the cam follower 163 into engagement with the edge of the cam 170 which includes a portion of reduced radius in order to permit counter-clockwise movement of arm 157 and corresponding clockwise rotation of arm 152 thereby rotating the deflector 120 in the opposite direction to that described above.
Once the tuft is formed and set, it is then trimmed with a CNC controlled trimmer and a new disc brush is finished. The disc is then ready to be taken off by the operator and replaced with a virgin block of a new brush.
