Gravure Doctor Blade Holders

Replace worn or damaged blade holders with a holder that features boltless blade clamping and tool-less disassembly for wash up.

Allison offers retrofit blade holders that do not use bolts to clamp the doctor blade, thereby eliminating the problems associated with bolted blade clamping. Various types of Allison “boltless” holders are available to fit into most press configurations. The holder may include a pre-wipe device to minimize the amount of ink turbulence and force to which the doctor blade is exposed. Pre-wipe devices have been proven to reduce haze at high press speeds as well as other print defects. Our holders can also contain built-in seals to reduce clean up problems.

The Next Step!

All of our holders are custom designed to the application based on proven design concepts and components. We will design your holder to include the options, styles, and features you need and desire. A prototype holder is manufactured first for testing on your press. Upon approval of the prototype, additional blade holders are manufactured to complete the press retrofit.

Please send us the following information if you would like a quote:

  1. Press name or manufacturer and model number on which the holders will be installed.
  2. Number of stations and number of holders desired.
  3.  Gravure cylinder size(s) (diameter and face length).
  4. Type of inks used (Water, Solvent, or UV) and viscosity.
  5. Web path schematic and/or press drawings in the area of the doctor blade holder, if available.
  6. Maximum press speed, FPM.
  7. Any issues you are having with the current blade holders.
  8. A few digital pictures of the current blade holder and the blade holder installed on press.
