Automatic high speed finishing machine


The FM range are automatic high speed finishing machines for high-quality toothbrushes. The FML-A2 is a high-capacity chain type finishing machine with an output of up to 75 brushes per minute and a very compact construction because of the double-clamp system. It is loaded in safe conditions, away from the moving conveyor chain. It has up to 6 trimming stations and up to 10 end-rounding stations, and can be used in combination with 2 or 3 tufting machines such as the  Hepta or the TB3-A to make an efficient and flexible high-output production cell.

In combination with one single header machines, the FM/L-A, FM-A, FS-A or TS-A are the ideal match, depending on the type of finishing required for the product and the number of other peripheral operations such as cleaning, hot stamping or date coding.



  • Automatic ejection of the finished products
  • Hot stamping and decal presses are available

  • On the FM-A, FM/L-A and FML-A2, longitudinal end-rounding is available for a consistent finish along the length of the brush head
