Kevlar braid is no problem for our brushing machines

Kevlar braid is no problem for our brushing machines

Kevlar braid – A first for us!

Another Boewe cable brushing machine ordered but this is for one very special application. A Kevlar braid cable that hangs out of the back of a helicopter!

This process generally takes upwards of TWENTY hours per cable end when done manually. The unbraiding must be done to a very high standard as its purpose is to support a large mass from the back of a helicopter in flight and its associated drag.

Switching across to using the BSB1005 we were able to reduce this time to the point where ≈ 95% of the work was done in 25 five minutes!

Boewe Elektrik constructed a special support plate but the brushes are standard, as is the rest of the machine.

You can see this in action in our YouTube video here:
