This week, GreenBroz announced an expanded strategic partnership with Brother Gearmotor, a division of Brother International Corporation, for the use of their gearmotors and expertise in the production of GreenBroz products. Notably, GreenBroz is the first company in the cannabis industry that Brother Gearmotor deals with directly.
The collaboration expands upon a relationship begun last year with the successful introduction of Brother gearmotors customized for use in the GreenBroz Model M Dry Trimmer. Brother gearmotors are now incorporated into the Precision Sorter and the Rise Conveyor. Specific attributes include:
- Brother's more efficient hypoid gearmotors, used for the grinders, transmit additional torque at lower HP due to increased efficiency.
- In-line helical gearing for trimmers are grease-filled, not oil-filled, and can be mounted in any direction and sealed for the life of the gearmotor without maintenance or leaking.
- The use of higher-quality copper wire makes motor winding more efficient and improves electrical conductivity due to fewer impurities in the metal.
Brother makes the ideal engineering partner for GreenBroz because of its commitment to quality and insistence on manufacturing components in-house to ensure quality control.
"They were able to customize the output shaft and put our logo inside the machine," said GreenBroz engineer Kevin Bower of the Model M. "The drilled and tapped shaft is unique to what they are manufacturing for us. Their motors are lightweight, quiet, efficient, washdown-ready and completely waterproof."
