Intelligent Coating Unit

The ICU (Intelligent Coating Unit) automates the coating preparation from its as supplied state to the density that delivers the most consistent layer thickness – continuous monitoring, control and adjustment ensures optimized coating performance utilization. The ICU is ready for Industry 4.0 standards.


Flow Coating Equipment

The equipment consists of three main parts: the pressure tank, the control box and the catchment tray.  It operates on the principle of displacement of the coating from the tank via a flexible hose by use of low pressure compressed air.
No other power source is required and the low degree of wear due to the absence of mechanically moving parts in contact with the coating is of special advantage.

"Prior to our relationship with Weaver Materiel, we were purchasing riser sleeves direct from the OEM. As a stocking distributor, Weaver typically is able to deliver same or next day. OEM lead times averaged three to four weeks. With Weaver, I've been able to reduce my working inventory by about 40%."

“Ashland Foundry & Machine Works and Weatherly Casting are grateful for the partnership in our working relationship with Weaver Materials.  Weaver has helped us maintain pricing and avoid increases in a volatile market.  Weaver has always kept us in supply of material when markets dictated shortages/allocation status.  If Weaver was not in our vendor pool daily production ability would have been negatively impacted.  Weaver is also technically able to review our foundry processes and make suggestions to either achieve a cost savings or process improvement.  I am looking forward to a continued collaboration between the Weaver team and my locations.”
