The Black Bros. Vertical Coil Coater is an outstanding solution to the floor space challenges that impact plant layout.

The Vertical Coater will apply Pre-paint Chemical Treatments, Phosphates, Chromate and Acrylic coatings to metal coils. When you have pre-painted metal you get products that are stronger and stand up to corrosion.

The coater has the ability to apply many different kinds of liquids and substrates onto the product from one or both sides. Also, install a Vertical Coater to apply Dry Film lubricants.

Vertical Coaters can be configured with the Black Bros. innovative Fast Change and Shuttle Head features for quick color change and off-line clean up in painting operations. An additional list of optional features, such as the innovative automatic cleaning cycle is available. Black Bros. also offers a two-year warranty on all coil coating machinery.

Ten Benefits of the Black Bros. Vertical Coil Coater:

1. Get a consistent coating weight over the whole length and width of the coil

2. Greater edge coating control

3. No streaks in the coating

4. Total control of the coating weight over many line speeds

5. A faster and more controlled engagement and disengagement process

6. Easier cleanup

7. Faster roll change. (And with our quick change feature — we’re faster than our competitors.)

8. Get rid of hazardous waste and sludge that is the byproduct of a spray system

9. Stop the health risk of airborne chrome

10. Quieter operation


Coil coating is an effective and powerful way to increase the life, beauty and use of a product. This process can be used when you’re creating a home appliance, trim for architecture, building material or a container (to name a few of many uses.)

While the coil is being manufactured, coil coating (or toll coating) is the process by which the manufacturer applies a chemical or paint, typically to steel or aluminum, which are created as large rolls of coil prior to final forming.

The coils are bathed through layers of different products using multiple rollers. This is best accomplished in coil coating machinery, such as Black Bros. Vertical Coil Coater. During the coating process, the coils are opened, cleaned and treated so they can best retain the application of a final chemical or paint finish.

First, the chemical cleaning treatment helps form a surface that allows the final chemical or paint finish to adhere to the surface of the coil. The next step is to apply primer in the Primer Coater, which is followed by a trip through an oven to dry the primer. The last layer is applied in the Finish Coater, which rolls the lasting paint or chemical sealant that will form on one or both sides of the coil. The last step is rerolling the coil, which is then distributed to be machined into various products, such as refrigerator’s, garage doors, appliances or furniture.

One great benefit of coating is that the coat lasts longer when applied in a controlled factory setting with a Vertical Coil Coater – onto the virgin coil – than when it is applied after the final product is manufactured, when it’s impossible to replicate the powerful steps in the coil coating process.

What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
