The blade is being used on the print station of the tissue converting company’s napkin production line. After trialing TruPoint Orange doctor blades in this application, 9Septembar Chief Engineer Constructor Branko Brković found they “improved performance of the printing section, increased safety during handling operations and were faster and easier to change than other doctor blades.”
Like numerous OEMs, the company will be shipping new napkin machines with the TruPoint Orange blade. Brković went on to say, “We are satisfied with the durability of the blades and we see Flexo Concepts as a reliable partner in the future.”
Located in Serbia, 9Septembar also manufactures handkerchief-making equipment, slitters and rewinders and sells to over 40 countries worldwide. The company delivers turn-key solutions that can be customized with a lamination station, a variety of embossing and perforation sections, and wrapping units in addition to print decks with up to 6 colors.
