The original founders owned a precision machine shop called Nichols
Machine. In the 1920’s they developed a high pressure, precision gear
pump to process rayon, thus creating Zenith Gear Pump company. They
subsequently saw new applications for their line of precision gear
pumps in the precision fluid pumping and in web coating applications.
In 1949 a new company, Acumeter was founded to service these
May Coating Technologies
May Coating Technologies was founded in 1983 by two partners with
roots in the precision coating and pumping industries. MCT produced
hundreds of high-performing adhesive melters and coating machines
serving fortune 500 clients as well as small to medium sized
companies. May Coating Technologies merged with Acumeter in1992.
The combination of the two companies results in outstanding Acumeter
gear-pump technology and modern coating and web-handling designs. The
current owners of Acumeter are the founders of May Coating Technology.
They have been in the business of melting, pumping, coating, and
web-handling machine design for a combined 60 years. Our founders and
current owners have extensive backgrounds in manufacturing and
industrial machine design. We know the importance of machine up-time,
productivity, ease of maintenance, and service after the sale.
Acumeter has numerous patents that attest to our ingenuity, including
inventing the inverted-drum style drum unloader. Our equipment is in
operation around the globe. We want to translate this ingenuity and
rich history into a great customer experience for you. We want to
