The brush filaments are manufactured in abrasion-resistant polyamide and embedded in a brush belt made of a high-tech composite material. The tips of the filaments are smoothed and end-rounded to protect scratch-sensitive surfaces. For subsequent processes of a particularly delicate type such as coating or lacquering, the linear brush, which has an exceptionally long industrial life, may undergo plasma degreasing.
The circulating linear brush has a flexibly mounted working run. Bedded on a flexible pressure buffer which is pneumatically regulated, the contact area of the linear brush can adapt perfectly to convex and concave curved surfaces with a deviation tolerance of between - 30mm and + 10 mm.
A self-cleaning unit constantly regenerates the linear brushes during continuous operations in industrial production. A rotating rack and compressed air nozzles detach particles both mechanically and pneumatically from the linear brushes. The loose particles are promptly disposed of by a suction system.
The circulating motion of the linear brush and the critical distance to the surface are continuously monitored. Inductive sensors monitor the depth of the impression made on the flexible pressure buffer, the circulating motion of the linear brush and the distance to the surface of the substrate. Sensor-specific data are transmitted via a digital fieldbus system to client process control.
The robot flange is adapted to fit the specific robotic system as required according to client specifications.
