TRUPOINT Plactic Doctor Blade

TRUPOINT Plactic Doctor Blade

With new press technology and increasing customer expectations, it is critical that a printer select the right doctor blade material to maximize print quality and minimize costs. Next generation plastic doctor blades designed with innovative materials offer a great solution in the world of ink metering. A mix of precision micro edge profiles and long and steady wear capabilities allows printers to achieve smooth ink metering in creating great image qualities. The improved structures of plastic blades allow for a fine contact area and no splintering or cracking.

TruPoint™ doctor blades are an economical and practical substitute for steel doctor blades in flexographic printing and offset coating applications. 

Manufactured from a variety of plastic and composite materials,TruPoint doctor blades can last up to five times longer than steel and will effectively meter all types of inks and coatings. TruPoint blades also reduce anilox roll scoring and are safer to handle than steel. This means fewer anilox roll repairs and fewer chances for operator injury.
