The textile coating machine of the textile coater is mounted on the vertical support arm of the coater, and the coating mechanism is moved up and down by the belt, chain or cable transmission, and coated along the surface of the screen. The transmission is connected to a servo or variable frequency motor for smooth operation and precise control of the position of the coating mechanism.
Before the textile coating machine, the clean, stretched screen is loaded from the front of the coater, and some models can also be loaded into the screen from the side. Among the models designed for large format frames, side loading is more common because the frame is large and bulky, and the side loading allows for a smaller amount of lift and movement. When the automatic screen coater is operated online with other automatic screen processing equipment, it is more convenient to mount from the side.
Once the screen is in the correct position, the pneumatic clamp or mechanical clamp is closed and the screen is locked. In order to make the operation more convenient, many models have pedals to control the folder movement, and the operator can free his hands to control the screen. After the screen is installed and the corresponding emulsion is poured into the automatic coater, the coating can be started.
