Cevomat

  • Brush technology

    Four Sword Brushes in all clean metal coils of steel, stainless steel, aluminium and non-ferrous metals from above and from below. The filaments of the brushes remove any contamination effectively from the surface. Lubricants remain on the metal strip and are spread evenly across the surface by the brushes.

  • Self-cleaning mechanism

    The linear brushes are permanently refreshed in a self-cleaning unit to accommodate the continuous operation of manufacturing lines in industrial production. A rotating rack and compressed air nozzles detach particles mechanically and pneumatically from the linear brushes. The loose particles are then disposed of by means of vacuum extraction.

  • Flexible pressure buffer and parallel guides

    Each linear brush is flexibly bedded on a pressure buffer. The flexible pressure buffer provides for a consistent wiping pressure, even onto a wavy metal strip. Parallel guides prevent the linear brushes from tilting into the transport direction of the fastmoving strip. In this way, brush filaments always meet the surface at right angles and are therefore able to achieve premium cleaning results.

  • Crash Protection

    A pneumatic quick adjustment feature lifts the Sword Brushes instantaneously from the surface of the metal strip if a crash situation is detected. Transition areas or faulty sections at the beginning or end of a strip can pass through the Cevomat without damage occurring. The pneumatic stroke facilitates, in addition, a smooth coil changeover.

Flexible pressure buffer

The linear brushes are mounted on pneumatically regulated flexible pressure buffers. These buffers compensate for variations in material thickness and provide for a consistent wiping pressure on wavy metal strip. Furthermore, parallel guides prevent the linear brushes from tilting into the transport direction of fast-moving webs.The brush filaments will always meet the surface, therefore, at right angles without any overbending and deliver superb cleaning results.

Lifting of brushes at sharp edges

The surface of the coil is cleaned from both sides, with two Sword Brushes wiping from above and two from below. To protect the filaments and prolong the industrial life of the brushes, the linear brushes are lifted slightly at the edge of the strip and will touch the surface only after having just passed the material’s edge. The brushes at the inlet and outlet of the machine wipe in opposite directions, thus guaranteeing that the entire product surface is cleaned effectively.

Thermal self-cleaning mechanism

A self-cleaning unit consisting of rotating racks and compressed air nozzles continuously cleans the linear brushes both mechanically and pneumatically. A thermal self-cleaning function is also available as an option. This involves heating elements which heat the walls of the self-cleaning unit thereby liquifying the viscous mass of lubricants (hot melts). The mixture of particles and lubricants is systematically detached from the filaments and extracted through heated suction connections. Aerosols containing lubricants are separated from the extraction airflow via a cyclone separator and collected within an easily accessible collecting tray.

Pneumatic quick adjustment

If necessary, pneumatic cylinders can raise the Sword Brushes instantly from the web. This prevents polishing effects while connecting areas or faulty sections can pass through the Cevomat without causing any damage. The pneumatic height adjustment allows for a rapid coil change.

Trolley

In the version with a C-shaped protective frame and a trolley, the Cevomat can be removed from the production line with ease, even when an in-process metal coil is threaded through the line. Maintenance operations during continuous process applications are therefore undemanding.
