Quite the bounty: Up to 75 brushes per minute


Operated by hand, fast, and dangerously reliable

And the Z.SWORD offers all this with remarkably easy and secure operation. In contrary to the swordfish – being a predacious, bony fish feared for his ruthless hunting instincts to catch and eat other fish – our Z.SWORD eats filaments. Filaments which habe been cut by trimming units before the end-rounding process. The tufted toothbrushes are placed onto a conveyor belt by an operator, and subsequently clamped precisely and tightly at the brush head. The product is given the corresponding topography by trimming units combined with spreading systems. A great end-rounding quality is guaranteed by an adjustable number of grinding and polishing units. On request, it is even possible to decorate the toothbrush handle – with a fish, for example. The process is rounded off by brush cleaning, which offers the necessary hygiene.
