Absolute Engineering, the supplier of woven carbon fibre doctoring systems, has just completed the installation of four 5,640mm (222″) chamber for a Jumbo Gopfert post printer.

These are the biggest chambers Absolute have made, and incorporate a 100mm (4″) section carbon fibre crossbar to complement the unit.

The existing units were no longer fit for purpose, as the original coating had flaked off and the chambers were now badly corroded. This corrosion had also spread under the blade clamp, resulting in leakage and reduced blade life. These issues led the customer to look for a solution that would resolve these issues permanently.

By upgrading to the Absolute system the customer, a major integrated corrugator group, was already experiencing increased blade life, better ink returns and improved output due to reduced downtime.

Antony Whiteside of Absolute commented “Carbon fibre is especially appropriate for the Jumbo chambers as the combination of lightweight construction and incredible stiffness ensure that we don’t suffer from the sagging issues of aluminium or the vibration issues associated with stainless steel. We believe this is why more and more corrugated customers are selecting Absolute as their preferred supplier.”
