Helwig Carbon's Brushes for Forklift Motors Combine Quality, Economy and Availability


MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Helwig Carbon Products, Inc., a leading manufacturer of carbon brushes, brush holders and mechanical carbons, manufactures a new line of carbon brushes for forklift motors that combines quality, economy and availability for original equipment manufacturers and motor shops.

"Through Research and Development's field research, we have developed these brushes that are made from high-quality materials and perform as good or better than existing technology," said Jeff D. Koenitzer, president of Helwig Carbon Products, Inc. "And with our facility being located in the United States, our customers are able to get our products quickly either off the shelf or custom made."

The five new brushes fit most popular forklift models and are in inventory to be shipped immediately upon order. A leader in research and development, Helwig Carbon has produced many cost-effective, high-quality brush solutions using alternative materials through testing at their state-of-the-art facility in the United States.

Carbon brushes are electrical contacts that carry current to or from moving surfaces such as motors and generators. Brushes require frequent replacement due to the combination of mechanical wear resulting from friction, and electrical wear from excessive resistance at the contact surface. Helwig Carbon looks to match the right brush to the existing application and operating environment in order to maximize brush and commutator life.

Helwig Carbon Products, Inc. produces replacement brushes for all manufactures of electrical motors. With over 70 years of fabricating, molding and professional problem-solving experience, Helwig Carbon is a family-owned company dedicated to serving the customer with high-quality parts, the most economical methods of manufacturing, timely deliveries and technical support.
