Carbon brush mounts
Carbon brush mounts, often also called brush mounts, are an indispensable component for the reliable operation of electric motors. They serve as an interface between the power supply and the rotating components of the motor and thus enable the efficient conversion of electrical energy into mechanical work.
Brush mounts have the task of holding the carbon brush in a defined position in a system consisting of a carbon brush and slip ring or collector in order to establish electrical contact with a rotating or sliding part of a machine.
The brushes are arranged so that they come into contact with the collectors or slip rings, which are part of the motor's rotating shaft. The carbon brush transmits the electrical current from the power source to the rotor of the motor.
Carbon brush mounts are an important part of many industrial and everyday applications wherever electric motors are used. They are an essential component in electric motors and enable the smooth conversion of electrical energy into mechanical work. Regular maintenance and replacement of worn brushes increase the service life and efficiency of the motors.
Areas of application – carbon brush mounts:
Carbon brush mounts are used in a large number of motors. Typical examples of such motors include: Slip ring motor, single-phase series-wound motor, repulsion motor. Carbon brush mounts are also used in certain types of generators to transfer current from the rotating shaft to the external circuit.
Wear & maintenance – Carbon brush mounts:
The carbon brushes wear out over time due to contact with the rotating parts during operation. Wear depends on factors such as operating time, load and quality of the brushes. It is important to carry out regular maintenance to increase the service life and ensure smooth operation of the motor. During routine maintenance work on electric motors, the carbon brushes are checked and worn carbon brushes are replaced.

Frequently asked questions about our carbon brush mounts
What are carbon brush mounts and what role do they play in electric motors?
Carbon brush mounts, also known as brush mounts, are essential components for the function of electric motors. They ensure that the carbon brushes remain in electrical contact with rotating parts, such as slip rings or collectors, which enables the efficient conversion of electrical energy into mechanical work.
How do carbon brush mounts work in an electric motor?
The carbon brush mounts hold the carbon brushes in a defined position so that they can make continuous electrical contact with the rotating parts of a motor. This contact transmits the electrical current from the stator to the rotor and thus enables the motor to function.
What types of motors use carbon brush mounts?
Carbon brush mounts are used in various motors, including slip ring motors, single-phase series-wound motors and repulsion motors. They are also used in certain types of generators to transfer current from the rotating shaft to the external circuit.
Why is the maintenance of carbon brush mounts important?
Regular maintenance of carbon brush mounts is crucial to maintaining the service life and efficiency of electric motors. As carbon brushes are subject to wear during operation, checking and, if necessary, replacing worn brushes is an important part of maintenance.
Do you offer suitable carbon brushes and slip rings for your carbon brush mounts?
Yes, we offer suitable carbon brushes and slip rings for our carbon brush mounts. Our product range includes all the necessary components to ensure that your electric motors run smoothly and deliver optimum performance.
