Compact automatic toothbrush production line


The machine of the TB3-FM range are high-speed tufting machines with one single filling tool, running at up to 1000 tufts per minute with extremely quiet and vibration-free running, with an integrated finishing machine. All of these machines are available with a manually loade stack hopper, or a choice of automatic handle feeders, all with positive transfer of the handles, from the moment they leave the handle container to the moment they are placed in the turret clamps. After tufting, the products are automatically transferred into the integrated finishing machine. Handling devices with servo-motors are available to reduce the cycle times in case of brushes with few tufts, so that up to 34 brushes per minute can be produced. Finishing machines are available with a different number of work stations, depending on the complexity of the product and the number of operations that have to be performed. On the FM-A, FM/L-A and FML-A2, longitudinal end rounding is available for a consistently smooth and glossy end-rounded surfzce finishng along the length of the brush head.
