Simon Siewert

Simon Siewert, one of the two managing directors, along with Jürgen Traub, of Göppingen-based Trauwert GmbH, answers your frequently asked questions.

1. What are the advantages of mounting your clipper trimmers on roller bearings?

Mounting the clipper trimmers on roller bearings means that they can work with absolute precision and virtually wear- and maintenance-free. The result is a consistently good and long-lasting cutting performance without unforeseeable failures. This allows an outstanding degree of certainty in terms of planning in the production process.

2. What is meant by linear guideway?

These are components which move without play in a completely straight line. Depending on the requirements in terms of speed, precision or bearing load, either sliding, roller or ball bearings are used. On account of the above-mentioned advantages, we have chosen to use roller bearings.

3. With which machines are your roller-bearing-mounted clipper trimmers compatible?

In general, our clipper trimmers are compatible wherever complete cutting units are used. Examples include manufacturers such as Zahoransky, Esto, Schlesinger, Carnevali Dino, and so on. The various different types of drive which may be installed do not cause a problem with these makes. However, our clipper trimmers are not compatible with the manual brush trimmers from Baer as these trimmers are not complete cutting units. In the future, however, we would like to be able to offer our own complete units for this kind of manual cutting.

4. Are your clipper trimmers suitable for all cutting operations in brush and paintbrush manufacturing?

Yes. Our wide range of different standard toothings and the possibility of producing customised toothings quickly and inexpensively mean that we are able to cut any material.

5. You also offer surface and profile-grinding technology. What is the maximum size of workpiece you can machine?

Surface grinding: 600 mm x 300 mm. Profile grinding: 600 mm x 250 mm.

6. Is it possible in principle to produce any shape using profile grinding?

Virtually any profile or surface finish is possible. Tests must be carried out for very complex profiles, and these can be performed effectively by our freely programmable dressing process.
