Doctor blade types
Blade cost savings with HiQ doctor blades in combination with blade holders
The AkeBoose blade holder doctoring system allows to use a 10 mm wide round-tip blade strip as doctor blade instead of the 40 to 60 mm wide lamella doctor blade, which is traditionally used in rotogravure printing. The purchase cost per meter for a 10 mm doctor blade is naturally much more inexpensive than a much wider lamella blade of the same material.
Thanks to the low-pressure blade holder set up, not only the lifetime of the doctor blade can be increased by up to 50%, but also the service life of the printing cylinder can be extended.
This makes the HiQ doctor blades together with AkeBoose Strip-Blade and NewEdge® blade holders a very economic and efficient doctoring solution for rotogravure printing. The doctor blades are available in different thicknesses of 0.065 mm to 0.203 mm to accommodate different micro wipe requirements.
