Strip brushes on a mission to Mars

Wöhler strip brush on mission to marsCarolina Brush uses Wöhler machinery to produce brushes for NASA’s Mars mission.

The US brush manufacturer Carolina Brush is a long-standing customer of Wöhler Brush Tech and is convinced of the high machine quality. Carolina Brush offers a wide range of various brushes with the focus always on individual customer requirements, mostly custom solutions with a high priority on quality and service. In order to meet these demands it was clear to Fred Spach, President and CEO, that he needed the right machinery for the reliable and flexible production of these quality brush products.

This is why Carolina Brush relies on Wöhler Brush Tech, perfectly combining its US brushmaking expertise with German engineering and over 80 years of experience in the industry.
“Wöhler is an unbeatable partner in strip brush production – living and loving their commitment to innovation just like we do. We have a number of Wöhler machines in operation and are always impressed by their high quality and flexibility.” Production Manager Mike Carpenter stressed, having just returned from an acceptance test for a new strip brush machine at the Wöhler facility in Germany.

Not only Carolina Brush is convinced by the brush quality produced on Wöhler machines: Honeybee Robotics, for example, is a direct supplier to NASA and customer of Carolina Brush. This is how strip brushes from Carolina Brush came to be part of the prestigious Mars mission. To meet the most exacting demands of the US space agency is a great honour and an award in itself. Absolute reliability of every probe component is a must as they are exposed to many unknown factors on their 56,000,000 km long journey to Mars.

“We are both pleased and proud that Wöhler Brush Tech and Carolina Brush have been able to contribute to NASA research and the successful realisation of the Mars missions.” concluded Matthias Peveling, Managing Director of Wöhler Brush Tech GmbH, clearly satisfied.

Such cooperation with international customers has made Wöhler Brush Tech one of the global leaders in brushmaking machinery.
