Flexo Concepts Refines Doctor Blades

PLYMOUTH, MA | Flexo Concepts will promote new refinements to its MicroTip doctor blade edge at a technical seminar offered this week in Barcelona, Spain, by FINAT. Enhancements to the tip reportedly further improve metering precision and reduce waste that occurs during press startup.

Company says a modification to the MicroTip design doubles the tip’s stiffness at the contact point to further refine metering performance on high line screen anilox rolls. An improvement to the manufacturing process also is said to produce a smoother contact edge, eliminating the start-up lines experienced at times by printers when using polymer doctor blades.

Since its release to the market in 2013, the TruPoint Orange polymer doctor blade with a MicroTip has been endorsed by numerous press manufacturers, company reports.
