Buschman rod holders are used in paper mills all over the world. We offer the longest lasting, best fitting metering rod holders and rod beds in the industry for every coating application and machine type.
The stability, durability, and quality of Buschman rod holders is unmatched. We are the only metering rod manufacturer in the world that manufactures our own Hot Cast Polyurethane (PU) rod holders and UHMW Polyethylene (PE) rod holders in our own facility under one roof. We have the unique capability to control ALL aspects of production and quality to deliver the precision required from today’s papermaking industry.
Our proprietary in-house manufacturing and machining process produces rod holders and rod beds that give the metering rod a more uniform and consistent fit along the entire length of the holder. Our rod holders reduce rod vibration, increase rod and holder life, and promote a more uniform coating.
