Description

  • The The present invention relates to a toothbrush head having a plurality essentially stem-shaped, elastic cleaning elements, preferably on a cleaning element carrier to clumps summarized are attached and stand out from this. The invention further relates a method of making such a toothbrush head.
  • at usual Toothbrush heads become regularly individual Filaments or bristles to tufts summarized and as bristle tufts the cleaning element carrier attached to the toothbrush head. This can be done either by a so-called anchor plug process, where the bristles are U-shaped be turned over, so that a anchor plates between the thighs of the bristles is taken. The bristle tuft is while stuffed into a hole in the cleaning element carrier, the anchor plate itself across the bristles extending into the recess is injected so that it to whose walls are anchored and the bristles in the recess holds. alternative For this purpose, it has become known, the combined into a tuft bristles to pour in the injection-molded plastic injection element carrier, wherein here the bristle tufts with their inflowing Ends in the injection mold can be introduced so that you in injection molding of the cleaning element carrier in be poured this.
  • at this conventional Toothbrush heads is However, it sometimes difficult, the bristles or bristle tufts directed to give mechanical properties. For example, it may be desirable be, the bristles and the bristle tufts formed therefrom in to give one direction less rigidity than another Direction, for example, when cleaning in one direction large forces, for example to be able to apply on the plaque, while cleaning movements in one other direction smaller forces should be produced, for example, around the gums and the oral mucosa not to hurt, just to gently massage. Also, the Tufts of tufts only be trimmed into a limited number of forms or are more complicated Head shapes of bristle tufts just difficult to achieve. The heads the bristles themselves can regularly only rounded down.
  • Out WO 01/12013 A1 is a toothbrush and a method to their preparation is known in which serving as bristles filaments first in series one behind the other with their base portions on a band glued or welded become. By rolling up the tape with the attached bristles becomes a bristle tuft produced, which is then attached to a bristle carrier. Advantageous is here that through Stringing different lengths and / or different solid Bristles targeted properties of the resulting bristle tufts achieved can be. However, it is also difficult here, ultimately actually directed To obtain mechanical properties of the bristle tufts, in particular can the mechanical properties of the bristles themselves are not in the desired Way directionally changed become.
  • Of these, The present invention is based on the object, an improved toothbrush head and to provide an improved process for its production, avoid the disadvantages of the prior art and the latter in advance advantageously. In particular, it should be easier Way producible toothbrush head be created, the cleaning elements and Putzelementebüscheln in easy way the desired directionally different mechanical properties can be given.
  • According to the invention this Task through a toothbrush head solved according to claim 1. In procedural terms, the said task is through a method according to claim 20 solved. Preferred embodiments of the invention are the subject of the dependent claims.
  • According to the invention So as cleaning elements no conventional Bristles or filaments used as the starting form regularly individual Use plastic fibers, which then to the necessary length of the Bristles cut and to clumps summarized become. Instead of such bristles or filaments with non-directional, i.e. in all directions transverse to the longitudinal axis same mechanical Features beats the present invention, as cleaning elements to use film strips, the by a suitable separating forming process from a foil sheet be made. Such film strips can by suitable choice of Starting film, in particular its thickness and material composition, as well as suitable choice of geometry the desired mechanical, in particular directed properties are given. That's the way it is in a simple way, the film strip in different directions transverse to its longitudinal axis various mechanical properties such as bending force, elasticity, restoring force, Bend curve, etc. to give.
  • In particular, as a starting material for the production of the film strip, a thin films be used material and the film strips are given a blank, so that the individual cleaning elements have a rectangular cross-section, the length is preferably a multiple of its width. In particular, as a starting material, a film having a thickness in the range of 10 .mu.m to 500 .mu.m, preferably about 50 .mu.m to 250 .mu.m can be used. The film strips are preferably made of such a film in a strip width which corresponds at least ten times, preferably at least fifty times, the thickness of the film. For example, foil strips with a strip width of 1 to 5 mm can be produced.
  • One Another advantage of such cleaning elements consisting of film strips, more precisely their rectangular cross-section with a large ratio of his length to its width compared with conventional bristles with round cross-section in the improved toothpaste application on the teeth to be cleaned. While at tufts from conventional Filaments the abrasive elements of the toothpaste due to the convex bases of the toothpaste usual Bristles relatively fast outside the cleaning area of the bristle tufts, the flat or flat Film strips better the toothpaste and its abrasive elements and longer at the head of the cleaning tufts hold and thus over the tooth surface to be cleaned wipe, which is beneficial for plaque removal effect.
  • The Production of film strips from a foil sheet can be up to resort to different separating forming processes. After a preferred execution According to the invention, the film strips are punched out of the film sheet. This allows On the one hand high processing speeds are achieved, on the other hand are the geometric diversity of the film strips almost no limits.
  • alternative or additionally can in the production of film strips and cutting methods such as Laser cutting be used. This can be done with the help of cutting tools Cut introduced into the starting film and in this way the original one related Foil individual cleaning elements are produced in the form of film strips.
