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.
