Advanced Metering Rod Technology for Converting Plants and Film Coating
Converting plants that transform paper, film, and foil into tapes, labels, window films, protective masking, and other products demand the highest quality metering rods to meter coatings according to their unique specifications.
Converting plants around the world use Buschman grooved, wire-wound, and smooth metering rods to meter coating for a vast array of custom converting requirements, such as coated films, applying adhesive to tape, silicone release, or laying down tint on window film treatments. Our in-house manufacturing process enables us to deliver precision products that meet your needs for quality, consistency, and stability.
Buschman invented the grooved metering rod and is the global leader in grooved rod engineering and manufacturing. We offer over 28 thread profiles, the most of any supplier in the industry. We can create customized thread profiles tailored to your coating applications.
Buschman wire-wound rods, also called Mayer coating rods, are hard chrome plated stainless steel wrapped with 300 series stainless steel wire.
Buschman smoothing rods are hard chrome plated stainless steel. Many Buschman converting plant customers use a smoothing rod as a follow-up process to a metering rod or other coating method to create a smoother coating result and distribute higher viscosity coatings evenly and smoothly.
Buschman rod holders are precision manufactured for a more uniform and consistent rod fit along the entire length of the holder. We manufacture rod holders from Hot Cast Polyurethane (PU) and UHMW Polyethylene (PE).
