Absolutely perfect surface finishes:
Ten Rotamat coaters at APO

APO: Absolutely perfect surface finishes

APO – Pursuing Absolutely Perfect finishing Objectives: While this word play is a good description of the company’s philosophy, its name actually originated from the initials of the founder, namely Antonio Pozo. The coating job shop, located in the former coal region around the city of Aachen in Germany operates ten Rotamat coaters from Walther Trowal round the clock in three shifts. Every year around one billion parts are being coated.

APO purchased its first Rotamat, model R 90, in 2002, the year the company was founded. Since that time a close partnership has developed with Walther Trowal.  This cooperation has no doubt contributed towards the fact that today the drum coating of plastic components is the generally recognized standard.
