Domestically Produced: Twisted Wire OEM Cleaning Brushes Made in the USA

Industrial cleaning needs are incredibly varied in size, scope, and application. Along with those variations comes an array of cleaning best practices, standards, and required equipment. Industrial cleaning supply OEMs know that the right product can make cleaning jobs much more efficient. An important tool in any product line is the twisted wire brush. Using the right industrial cleaning brush can help clean more effectively, especially when adhering to environmental procedures in which the use of chemicals might be limited.

Rapid Virtual Prototyping with SanMac 3D
We turned to the software used by major motion picture animators to allow us to produce realistic renderings of design prototypes that can be easily modified. The SanMac 3D software is less expensive and faster than traditional sampling methods, letting us create virtual twisted wire brush designs that offer 360-degree visibility and industrialization feasibility testing prior to prototype build-outs. By using this method, we maximize design creativity while saving time, money, and unnecessary delays. This technology, combined with 60 years of experience and expertise, guarantees that development is quick, on budget, and ready for large-scale production.
