The FloaterCoater is the roller coater of the future for the metal stamping industry today.
It is constructed of stainless steel and
rolls that float with the movement of the coil
stock. The FloaterCoater is computer controlled to dispense the correct amount of lubricant to the surface of the roll
where it is then transferred to the coil stock. roller coater. Manifolds which feed the lubricant to the rolls can be
shut off and on to cover precise areas of the coil stock as well as top or bottom only lubrication. All of the features
of the FloaterCoater were designed for delivering the most controlled lubrication to the surface of coil stock while
still giving the operator ease of operation and maintenance of the system.
How The FloaterCoater Works.
Dispensing heads are held against the rolls and lubricant is dispensed upon command. The LSP electronic controller
is programmed to dispense the correct amount of lubricant for each cycle of the press. A floating chassis allows the
rolls to float with the coil stock insuring that the rolls are always in contact with the material. Lubricant to the
FloaterCoater is controlled with either manual on off valves or with the LSP Controller itself for precise lubricant usage.
Heads are individually selected by
the On/Off Valve and are spring
loaded against the Lubricating
Rollers. Faces conform to the
Lubricating Roller’s curvature to
ensure an even spread of lubricant
onto the roll.
Apply Lubricant Only Where Needed
Each Dispensing Head is controlled with an ON/OFF Valve. Closing a valve prevents lubricant from coating a specific area of the coil stock.
Roll Types to Cover a Range of Applications
Polyurethane with a Smooth Finish (left) applies a very light coating. Felt Rolls (center) give more versatility in lubricant thickness. Polyurethane with a Textured Finish (right) provide a heavier coating.
