It is a belt-driven brush lift. Its main feature is that it can elevate objects to a defined elevation while maintaining their orientation.
For example, full capsules of previously oriented coffee can be elevated and brought to the packaging station.
Transport is by means of a belt brush, which, due to its adaptability, within certain limits can carry different capsules even without format change. For the same reason, LIFT-Z can be used to neatly elevate a variety of three-dimensional objects, such as chocolates wrapped, cigarette packs and many other forms.
These are machines that use technical brushes in their production process.
Dust collectors, orienters, elevators, conveyors.
Industrial brushes are characterized by great adaptability to surfaces, great flexibility of use, and virtually unlimited variety of shapes and hardness. Therefore, the use of brushes in machines succeeds in being very efficient in many industrial processes.
In particular, brush dust collectors are more efficient than traditional non-contact dust collectors, while in the case of orienters, brushes replace other techniques (compressed air, vibration, etc.) managing to treat parts with low energy consumption, gently and quietly. The small footprint is another important advantage.
It can happen only if the brush is damaged due to an unforeseeable cause, such as a defective product that enters the machine and gets stuck in the brush destroying it, as on the other hand can happen with any other type of part in the machine. It should be mentioned that the same type of brush is currently used in pharmaceuticals and food without any problems.
Speaking of dust collectors, they are definitely cheaper than the main competitors.
As far as the orientators are concerned, they are aligned, but when looking at energy and space savings they are also more advantageous.
There is no one answer, as this time depends on many factors, such as product speed, materials, pressure, shifts, etc. As a broad indication, it can be said that a set of brushes can last between one and two years, sometimes longer.
