JUMBO CONVERSION FOR ABSOLUTE

Absolute Engineering, the supplier of woven carbon fibre doctoring systems have just completed the installation of a 5100mm (200″) Uniblade single blade doctor unit on a Rapidex flexo unit.

The unit, which was supplied complete with a carbon fibre crossbar to support the blade unit, is still light enough to be handled by one operator.

The installation at a UK converter has provided the customer with significant production and financial improvements.

Antony Whiteside of Absolute commented “The customer was struggling to produce a consistent colour tone and finish over such a wide width with a rubber roll applicator. In addition, the inks used are expensive, and so the cost of ink loss on colour change was significant. By upgrading to a blade unit, ink loss is cut dramatically”

Absolute introduced the Uniblade system 2 years ago, for customers who want to benefit from the advantages of utilising a doctor blade, without opting for a dual blade chamber.
