Staple Set Tufted Cylinder Brushes.

Staple Set brushes are constructed with a series of individual tufts.

The tufts of filament are inserted into a core which can be made of various materials. Staple set cylinders can have a variety of brush patterns. The function of the brush application combined with the fill material size determines the density and size of the tuft holes.

Coil Wound Cylinder Brushes.

After the metal back strip brush is formed, the strip is attached to a core, shaft or tube and wound under tension to make a coiled cylinder brush. Cores and shafts can be made of different types of materials, most popular materials are stainless steel, aluminium alloy and carbon steel.

The metal back brush can be wound on the core with a right or left hand spiral and a specific pitch to determine brush density. Density is accomplished by winding the strip open for a less dense brush or close wound strip for a full brush.   

The finished coil can be assembled to a core or shaft or unassembled for mounting to a customers shaft in the field.
