Mink U-System

he Mink U-System - for damage-free holding and protection

Damage in the form of scratches, dull spots, shiny spots, packaging marks or resins from foam materials can create immense costs in manufacturing. For example, bathroom fittings, glass and furniture manufacturers already benefit from the Mink U-System, with its flexible and versatile bristles,
in avoiding scrap.

Advantages:
• Damage is avoided
• Parts in all shapes and sizes can be held in position as required, simply and reliably
• Items can be safely placed on order picking trolleys for assembly lines

The Mink U-System® – a kit for order and efficiency in production
Damage in the form of scratches, dull spots,
shiny spots, packaging marks or resins from
foam materials can create immense costs in
manufacturing. Products such as bath fittings,
glass goods and furniture must be conveyed with
the utmost care to avoid damage to visible parts
and other vulnerable surfaces. A company that
must retouch parts or replace them entirely is less
efficient and less competitive. The Mink USystem’s
® flexible bristles provide reliable
protection, thus preventing rejects.

Advantages of the Mink U-System®:
Screw-connected segments permit low-cost
assembly and easy replacement
■ Components or assemblies with different
geometries can be held in position as required,
simply and dependably
■ Damage of any kind is avoided
■ Items can be reliably positioned on order
picking trolleys for assembly lines
■ Fragile parts are optimally secured and
protected from knocks
■ Bristles have minute areas of contact, reducing
friction to a minimum
■ Transport on and off premises is made safer
■ More packages fit in a given volume

Just as there are many ways to configure the
brushes, there is a huge selection of bristle types.
Standard bristles are made of hard-wearing
polyamide and are available in three colours,
three hardnesses and two lengths. The brush
bodies in the Mink U-System® are made of
polypropylene. The base plates, which are made
of polyethylene, are 10 mm thick. We’ll gladly
supply them in the dimensions you need. If you
have special requirements like electrical
conductivity, let us know. Attachment screws of
the correct size are supplied as needed.
