ASEIN as a manufacturer of carbon brushes and graphites has a very large range of products suitable for every need on the market.

Asein is a Spanish manufacturer of carbon brushes for power tools, forklifts and other industrial purposes. Asein is based in Barcelona since 1983 and they are currently exporting to 30 countries all over the world. They are leading Spanish market thanks to the quality and competitive prices of their products.

This is the reason for which we trust the ASEIN brushes.

A brush is a device which conducts current between stationary wires and moving parts, most commonly in a rotating shaft. Typical applications include electric motors, alternators and electric generators.

For an electric motor or generator to function, the coils of the rotor must be connected to complete an electrical circuit. To accomplish this, (copper or brass) 'slip rings' are affixed to the shaft, and springs press braided copper wire 'brushes' onto the rings which conduct the current. Later, these copper wire brushes were replaced with carbon blocks; but these blocks are still called brushes. As the brushes are slowly abraded, they may have to be replaced, if this is possible.

If the copper rings are split into parts with "interlaced" connections, the arrangement is called a commutator.

Metal fiber brushes are currently being developed again. These brushes may have advantages over current carbon brushes, but have not yet seen wide implementation.

There are distinguished basically 3 types of carbon brushes:

  1. brushes for automotive applications: DC current, voltage 12 - 48 Volts.
  2. brushes for "household" applications: AC current, voltage 110 / 220 Volts
  3. brushes for industrial motors: both AC and DC current of various Voltages.
