Robotic System: Automated Brush Trimmer and Flagger
Valley Brush Corp. - Aldergrove, BC
To fully automate the trimming, flagging and combing in the
manufacturing process of special brushes used in the truck
Contract engineering and building of robotic brush trimmer and flagger.
The robotic brush manufacturing station is approx. 9ft. long,
5ft. wide and 6ft. high. It comprises a controller
compartment (with a 5 axis servo-controller, power supply,
monitor and keyboard) and four individual work stations.
First is a trimming station. Then follows a coarse flagging
station, where the brush bristles get split. The third
station contains a customized flagger which assures the
unique softness of the bristle ends, for which the client is
renowned. The fourth station is a comber, which straightens
the brush bristles. An end effector that moves in X, Y and Z
direction and that additionally can rotate in the horizontal
and one vertical plane, holds the brushes with an attached
pneumatic gripper and takes them automatically from station
to station. These tasks were previously performed manually,
presenting a high risk for the operator's hands, as each brush
had to be held dangerously close to the rotating knife sets of
