Abtex Introduces Three-Brush Planetary Head System
Abtex Corporation's new three-brush planetary head system has been designed to produce optimal brushing action in through-feed applications.
Three, 10" disc brushes offer 207 sq. in. total of abrasive surface area, compared to 151 sq. in. with six, 6" brushes or 75 sq. in. with three, 6" brushes. Independent variable speed drives allow for job-to-job fine tuning of the rotary head to individual brush speed ratio by the system operator.
Brush changing is unique and operator-friendly. There is no threaded bolt or nut retaining the brush from underneath. Instead, the operator simply turns a horizontally located set screw to release or capture the brush via a "knob-headed" retaining pin. This eliminates the need for a spindle lock since the brush and center retaining pin need only be held up in their mounting position during installation and removal.
The Abtex three-brush planetary head system design is the result of extensive lab work and 25 years of machine building and brush application experience.
