Durable, rugged and reliable, Walco machines meet a full range of industrial coating needs, including high-volume, direct and indirect, and more complex coating applications:

  • Allow users to successfully apply various types of coatings to a wide variety of materials.
  • Apply precisely measured amounts of adhesive to any coating needed, including UV sensitive coatings.
  • Offer sheet or roll feeding options for both flexible and rigid materials.

Professional quality gluers

Walco's professional gluers are guaranteed to be of the highest quality and are known worldwide for their accuracy and workmanship. With customers on 5 continents, in over 60 countries, our gluers are trusted by companies of all sizes.

These automatic liquid coating machines (also called "roller coating machines") are specifically designed to directly apply virtually any liquid coating. Suitable substrates include:

  • The top and/or bottom of clean, flat, dry sheets,
  • Wood,
  • Glass,
  • Acrylic,
  • Plastic,
  • Sheet metal,
  • Fabrics, nonwovens and more.

Walco's automated coating equipment is the result of decades of engineering for simple and reliable operation.

Automated roll coating applications can include the following actions:

  • Spreading of adhesive,
  • Clear topcoat,
  • Color coating,
  • Painting,
  • Oil coating,
  • Reverse coating,
  • And many others.

Precision settings allow for exact dosing of coating fluid for a uniform finish, saving time and money.

Learn more about the precision of Walco gluers: The roller opening is adjustable. The coating fluid is poured into the reservoir formed by the coating roller and the doctor roller. By moving the doctor roller away from the coating roller, the operator can adjust the thickness of the coating liquid.
