Staple Set Brushes

Rectangular Brushes:

Are the most common brush, and have the widest range of sizes.

Block Materials: Wood, pressed wood, laminated wood, plastic, rubber, assorted resins, phenolic impregnated papers and fabrics, static dissipative plastics, and leather.

Trim Shapes: Flat, concave, convex, stepped, beveled, and converging.

Bristles can be inserted either perpendicular to the surface, or flared at varying angles to the surface.

Some Applications: Agitation, Labeling Alignment, Polishing, Blending, Smoothing, Buffing, Snag Labeling, Carding, Cleaning, Scrubbing, Coating, Solder removal/Deflashing, Deburring, Static Elimination, Descaling, Swimming pool cleaning, Grooming, Thread Alignment

Wheel brushes:

Wheel brushes are defined as a rotary brush where the face width is smaller than the diameter of the brush, as opposed to a cylinder brush, which is a rotary brush where the face width is larger than the diameter of the brush.

Block Materials: Wood, plastic, rubber, phenolic impregnated papers and fabrics, and static dissipative plastics.

Trim Shapes: Flat, stepped, intermittent.

Tuft patterns: In-line (tufts are inline with each other as the brush rotates), or Staggered (tufts are offset from each other as the brush rotates).

Some Applications: Circuit Board manufacture, Flash Removal, Glass fabrication, Leather processing, Metal finishing, Paper Transport, Slag removal, Stitch cleaning,

Cylinder Brushes:

Cylinder brushes are defined as a rotary brush where the face width is greater than the diameter of the brush, as opposed to a wheel brush, which is a rotary brush where the face width is smaller than the diameter of the brush.

Block Materials: Wood, plastic, rubber, phenolic impregnated papers and fabrics, and static dissipative plastics.

Trim Shapes: Flat, stepped, intermittent.

Tuft patterns: In-line (tufts are inline with each other as the brush rotates), Staggered (tufts are offset from each other as the brush rotates), helical (where the brush pattern spirals around the brush-- useful for moving material to one side or another of the brush with an "augering" action).

Some Applications: Circuit Board manufacture, Conveyor belt cleaning, Embossing, die applications, Fruit/vegetable cleaning, Glass fabrication, Leather processing, Mesh cleaning, Metal finishing, Paper Transport, Pipe manufacture, Road Cleaning, Vehicle Washing

Face Brushes:

Face brushes are defined as a rotating disk brush with bristles projecting from the flat surface of the disk.

Block Materials: Wood, pressed wood, laminated wood, plastic, rubber, assorted resins, and phenolic impregnated papers and fabrics.

Trim Shapes: Flat, concave, bevel, stepped. Bristles can be inserted either perpendicular to the surface, or flared-- that is, at varying angles to the surface.

Some Applications: Cement surface cleaning, Chrome polishing, Floor cleaning, Glass polishing, Lens polishing, Powder dispersal, Printed circuit processing, Microchip support (during manufacture), Shoe polishing, Upholstery cleaning, Waxing

End Brushes:

End brushes are defined as a rotating disk brush with bristles projecting from the flat surface of the disk.

Block Materials: Wood, plastic, rubber, and phenolic impregnated papers and fabrics.

Trim Shapes: Flat, beveled or chiseled, Converging.

Some Applications: Deburring, Dish washing, Flux application (automated), Manicuring, Porcelain manufacture, Solder Removal, Typewriter type cleaning
