Electric Motor Brush Holders From ETCO Are Custom Designed for Optimum Performance

BRADENTON, FL--(Marketwire - Nov 9, 2011) - ETCO Incorporated is introducing custom manufactured carbon brush boxes for electric motor OEMs that are designed to reduce brush noise and extend motor life.

ETCO Carbon Brush Boxes are custom engineered to meet OEM design requirements for holding brushes ranging from 0.031" to 0.75". Made from brass and other materials in sizes from 0.008" to 0.090" thick, tolerances can be held to 0.002" across all critical formed surfaces, depending upon material.

Custom designed with multiple formed surfaces to provide an optimum commutation system, ETCO Carbon Brush Boxes incorporate base extrusions and eliminate rivets. They are formed in a high-speed progressive die which dramatically reduces the per part price, claims the firm.

ETCO Carbon Brush Boxes are priced according to material, configuration, and quantity. Representative samples are available upon request.

About ETCO Incorporated

ETCO Incorporated was founded in 1947 as Electric Terminal Corporation. The original company produced wall plug blades in strip form for attachment by the customer on a patented air operated machine. ETCO still produces wall plug blades, although the production speeds have increased from 175 parts per minute to as fast as 3,000 parts per minute. Today, the company's product line has expanded into thousands of different products; both catalog and custom terminal products designed and tooled for their customers' individual needs.

ETCO Incorporated is divided into several divisions representing distinct product areas including automotive. The reason for this is so that each division can respond to the customer with the care and concern of a small manufacturer while retaining the overall resources of a larger manufacturer. This formula has worked well and the ETCO philosophy of "old values and customer service" has propelled the company to a position of industry leadership.
