Paper machine coater section rebuild
Our UK customer was running an old coater on their board machine and was experiencing failures and significant down-time. Walmsleys offered a paper machine coater section rebuild to upgrade the system and eliminate current failures.
Problems with the old equipment included:
Split / twisted coater pan
Faulty hydraulic cylinders and flow controllers
Damaged pan lifting arms
Applicator roll arm pins and bushes were badly worn
No work was required for the backing roll or coating head
For a much lower cost than a new coater, Walmsleys supplied and installed new equipment to fix the above problems and to get the coater in full working order again.
