Flexo Doctor Blade – It’s All About the Ink

Flexo Doctor BladeA lot of ink and substrate can go to waste in the printing business. Much of this is due to the quantity of ink being delivered to the plate. Additional ink film needs to be eliminated or the print quality suffers. This is why many printers are choosing higher quality, long life versions of the flexo doctor blade to solve this expensive problem.

A properly chosen flexo doctor blade makes the whole process much more precise, thus reducing wasted ink and  substrate, since  control is established with a metering system that carefully distributes the optimal amount of ink film based on the anilox engraving. The improvements in the product are visible immediately as there is consistency, so the final product doesn’t vary in color or quality.

You need to increase your efficiency and ensure the final products contain quality images and accurate colors, and of course, reduced waste is good for business, as well as the environment. Plus, your customer ends up with a beautiful product with the printing looking just as it was meant to be — such a little thing to make a big difference in your printing business.

Doctor Blades – Providing the Edge in Printing

Doctor BladeYour printing business depends on meticulous attention to detail because it’s the little things that make a huge difference when you’re printing thousands of impressions for an order. One tool that many printers find invaluable is a doctor blade to control the thickness of the ink film. These blades are of great importance to reducing waste as they play a crucial role in achieving accurate metering and consistent results.

Your goal is to get as many copies as you want of a label,  package, or brochure. You also want these copies to look the same as far as quality and color go. You don’t want to throw away printed materials because the color  or appearance is variable, rather than consistent.  The correct doctor blade is an essential tool that gives your company the advantage.

Whether rounded, standard, or  Superhoned®, a doctor blade that fits the needs of your printing press is essential for performance. You need a reliable tool with the edge that produces results. As printing is changing continuously, your company must respond with products that result in higher quality products for your customers with less waste and higher efficiency for you.  Contact the team at Allison Systems Corporation for more information about our products.
