Plymouth, MA, February 26, 2018. Flexo Concepts will promote new refinements to its innovative MicroTip doctor blade edge at FINAT’s Technical Seminar 2018 in Barcelona. Enhancements to the tip further improve metering precision and reduce waste that occurs during press start-up.
A modification to the revolutionary 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 produces a smoother contact edge, eliminating the start-up lines which are experienced sometimes 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. Last year at Labelexpo Europe, Orange was run on equipment by AB Graphic, Cartes, Domino, Edale, Focus, Werosys and others, many of which ship the blade standard with new equipment installations.
