In its quest to continue providing tag and label printers with innovative doctor blade advancements, Flexo Concepts (stand 7B20) will introduce a new refinement to its MicroTip® technology at Labelexpo Europe 2017.
The modification to the MicroTip design doubles the tip’s stiffness at the contact point to further enhance metering precision on high line screen anilox rolls. An improvement to the manufacturing process also produces a smoother contact edge, eliminating start-up lines which have plagued non-metallic doctor blade users for years. Early lab and field testing has yielded positive results and the company is excited to share its latest innovation with the European label printing market.
An adaptation of the lamella, MicroTip offers printers more effective metering at higher line screens than traditional polymer blades. Last year, the company announced new configurations that allow printers to select a customized blade thickness and MicroTip combination to optimize performance and blade life in their specific applications.
