Anti-Static Rotary Brush
Our Technical Solutions team were contacted by YKK (Europe) Ltd who requested a replacement for their existing anti-static rotary brush.
The brush is required during the manufacturing process and is to be fitted to a bespoke manufacturing machine for the removal of foreign objects or debris from zip fastenings.
The material of the brush had to be anti-static and a soft material so as not to damage the plastic teeth of the zipper. The composition of the item must be resin set to avoid bacterial build up and ensure knot security.
The solution developed by our team was a brush component of similar dimensions to their existing brush but amended to suit their manufacture capabilities and YKK’s machine alterations.
Rather than the original anti-static nylon brush they had it was recommended by our team that pre-formed pure bristle tufts would be more suitable for both the application and manufacture purposes.
“Cottam developed a brush which provided a solution to our changing manufacturing capabilities. The development and design service and consistency of product has impressed me greatly”
