    Variable Speed Draw-Down

    Our best seller

    Get consistent use of grind gages using the ADM 2 automatic draw-down machine from Little Joe Industries. The ADM 2 is designed to be durable and simple to operate.

    • Designed for use with liquid and paste coatings.
    • Adjustable draw down speeds from one to ten seconds
    • Consistent and accurate scraper force adjustable from 1.75 to 6 kg (3.5 to13 pounds).
    • Smooth motorized scraper movement.
    • Rigidly held scraper provides consistent scraper angle.
    • Uses existing grind gauges and scrapers from your current supplier.
    • Works with grind gauges and with draw-down pads.
    • Requires less operator training and supervision on proper grind gage use.
    • Removes operator variables.

    The scraper is held at an 85-degree angle. This allows using each side of the scraper twice, effectively giving you four scraper edges instead of just two and doubling the life of each scraper compared to a 90-degree angle. 90-degree versions are available [Link] by special order.

    The ADM also makes color comparison draw downs on draw down pads using a scraper. This requires the purchase of a Draw Down Kit [Link].
