Z.RAY from ZAHORANSKY: precise and hygienic manufacture of wooden toothbrushes
Mon July 13, 2020
Oral hygiene starts with a clean toothbrush. This is especially true when it comes to the increasingly popular versions made from the renewable raw material wood, such as maple, bamboo, birch, hornbeam, and teak. With the new Z.RAY, ZAHORANSKY is introducing the next logical development for the hygienic manufacture of such wooden toothbrushes. Thanks to a separate drill unit with attached suction unit, more than 800 holes per minute can be drilled within a protective shield. The resulting wood dust is automatically extracted. This means that up to 35 handles can be produced every minute. The Z.RAY is compatible with machines from the Z.SHARK and Z.ORCA ranges.
For many people, wooden toothbrushes are an ecologically sensible alternative to the conventional plastic versions. As a result, the demand for this former niche product is steadily increasing worldwide. The new Z.RAY fully satisfies manufacturer’s requirements for customized models in large volumes. Different hole patterns with diameters from 1.0 to 3.0 mm and depths of 2.5 to 3.8 mm can be used. The Z.RAY is also flexible when it comes to feeding in the previously treated wooden handles: this can be done either manually or automatically.
