Solutions to Common Problems of Roller Coaters

Ⅰ. Know the roll coater


The full name of the roll coater is the roll coater. That is, a device that uses more than one set of rotating rollers to apply a certain amount of paint to a flat material. The thickness of the coating can be adjusted by changing the pressure between the two rollers. Typical roll coaters include roll coaters, pressure roll coaters (gravure roll coaters), forward and reverse roll coaters, and the like. In addition, the coating machine that replaces the coating blade with a small diameter coating roll is also called a roll coater.


Ⅱ. Coating mechanism of roll coater


The coating mechanism of the roll coater is also called the coating head, which is composed of a winding roll, a coating roll, and a coating pan. This method of construction is often referred to as the twin roll type. The working principle of the coating mechanism of the roll coater is that the take-up roller picks up the paint from the paint pan and delivers the paint to the applicator roller, which applies the paint on the surface of the roller. Each roll is equipped with an adjustment device that is able to adjust the gap and pressure between the rolls to achieve the desired coating amount. The roll coater is stopped and the seam of the coil is passed. An active adjustment device actively contacts the front applicator roll from the web to keep the applicator roll from being damaged.


The difference between the three-roll coating head of the roll coater and the two-roll type is that a regulating roll is added, and the gap between the regulating roll and the winding roll is changed to adjust the wet film thickness. Roll coaters with high production speed often have two coating heads, two coating heads on the front of the web, and two coating heads are used to quickly change the coating and applicator rolls.


Ⅲ. Understand the solutions to common problems of roll coaters


1. The front end of the roll coater is heavily painted. Solution: It may be caused by the slow coating wheel of the roll coater, and the speed of the coating wheel can be adjusted appropriately. It may be caused by too fast conveying speed, and the conveying speed can be slowed down.


2. The back end of the roll coater plate is stacked. Solution: It may be caused by the excessive rotation speed of the coating wheel of the roll coater, and the rotation speed of some coating wheels can be adjusted appropriately to check the effect; it may be caused by the transmission speed being too fast, and the transmission speed can be slowed down.


3. The surface coating of the sheet coater looks very uneven. Solution: The surface of the roll coater is uneven, the water content of the plate can be adjusted, or the plate can be replaced. There is too little paint between the steel bar of the roll coater and the glue roller, that is, too little oil in the oil pump, and the oil pump cannot be turned on. There is a problem between the steel bar of the roll coater and the coating roller, and the gap can be adjusted.


4. The motor of the roll coater cannot rotate normally. Solution: Check whether the start switch is turned on; check whether the contactor in the control box is damaged; check whether the inverter is working normally.
