BLADE EDGE CONFIGURATIONS
1. LAMELLA EDGE: also commonly called STEP Edge is the most commonly used edge configuration preferred by customers.
Incorporating the latest technology, SUREPRINT Doctor Blades increase productivity, improve quality and reduce wastage or rejections. The unique shape of the lamella ensures that a constant contact area with the cylinder is maintained throughout the life of the blade resulting in uniform printing throughout the print run, thus no re-sharpening is required.
The novel shaping process of the lamella ensures that there are no longitudinal grinding scratches or shed marks. Also, the parallel zone of the lamella ends in a smooth taper called the dynamic zone which reduces vibrations and fatigue.
2. STRONG LAMELLA: This is basically a lamella type blade where instead of the edge being absolutely parallel to the main blade body it is tapered between 5 to 30 microns depending on customer requirements. This doctor blade edge helps to minimize print errors with poor doctor blade settings and to make it a little more "forgiving". The blade has a gradual contact edge and has increased strength to better support the lamella.
3 . Other edge configurations, such as Round Edge blades are also available on request.
