Metering Rods for Linerboard & Packaging Paper Production
Linerboard and coated packaging papers manufacturers use Buschman metering rods to apply a variety of color and functional coatings to brown liner and medium paper.
Buschman rods are manufactured in-house for precision, quality, stability, and consistency. Our metering rod solutions enable linerboard and packaging paper manufacturers to apply white coating prior to a printing operation and to apply barrier coatings, such as water-resistant and grease-resistant coatings.
Buschman is the grooved metering rod expert, offering more than 28 thread profiles and the ability to engineer a customized thread profile specifically for your linerboard application. We optimize our products for superior, long-lasting performance and consistency you can count on in linerboard coating.
Many linerboard plants use a Buschman smoothing rod as a follow-up process to a metering rod or other coating method to create a smoother coating result, especially when using high viscosity coatings.
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).
