How to configure your metering rod

First select whether you want to configure a smooth or profiled metering rod. Next, select the diameter and enter the total length of the rod in mm. If you want to configure a profiled metering rod, select the desired profile. Now the selection of the coupling(s)/machine end(s) must be specified. Please indicate whether this is one-sided or both side.

Finally, enter the quantity and add the product to the shopping cart. That's it!


Metering with smooth rods – equivalent to metering with coater blades – is based on the hydrodynamic principle. The pressure generated in the dosing zone is of decisive importance for the coating volume.


Metering with profiled rods is referred to as volumetric metering. During the metering process, the points of the profile are almost in contact with the sheet or backing roll. The precise coating volume is determined by the geometry of the profile, i.e. by the rod profile cross section and distance.

The design of the profile also affects quality of coating and rod life. On profiled metering rods, the linear load serves more as wear compensation than for setting of coating volume. Ideally, after installation of a new metering system the start-up is performed at high contact pressure, which is continuously reduced until minimum pressure is reached. This ensures a consistent coating volume at maximum service life of the metering system.


It is not only the metering rod that determines the quality of the job - the rod ends / couplings
also play a role that should not be underestimated.

We offer rod ends for various types of systems or mounting points.
