Mini Gate is an ultra-compactdust collector that can fit into a processing line within a space of only 50 mm. It works by means of a belt-driven brush, which intercepts dust and carries it to the side of the workpiece to be cleaned.
It has a belt tensioner to work with the right brush pressure, and the motor shaft is also a fulcrum around which the Mini Gate can be lifted for quick inspection or maintenance.
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.
The customer sends us a few panels (sheet, film, etc.) that are treated in the lab with various dust collectors so that we can choose the one that gives the best results. The processed samples are then reviewed by the customer for approval.
We generally have field test dust collectors available, which can be sent to the customer for limited periods of time.
No, the installation is done directly by the customer given its extreme simplicity. Of course, one must first evaluate the available spaces on the line, which sometimes contribute to the choice of the dust collector itself.
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.
