To try to save money by skimping on brush material can become quite expensive – this is also stressed by Pär Wallmark: „Inadequate materials mean that the carbon brushes need to be changed more frequently. That leads to rising material costs and above all production stops. Moreover, the systems have to be cleansed of abrasion dust more often. And if you neglect to do that, you even risk incurring a short circuit in the motor or generator.“
In the course of their inspection visit, however, our experts did not only examine the Schunk parts which had been installed in the systems. Their respective counterparts, such as commutators and slip rings, can also be subject to mechanical or electrical wear. „We want the best possible efficiency and reliability for our customers“, concludes Pär Wallmark. „And the feedback of our customers shows that we are really good at achieving this.“
