The inventor of TruPoint plastic doctor blades
Since its foundation in 1988, Flexo Concepts built a name as a manufacturer of high-quality plastic doctor blades. Flexo Concepts is also a pioneer in the application of new generation polymers as an alternative to steel doctor blades.
In the development of doctor blades, Flexo Concepts strives for:
- optimizing flexo print quality
- reduce operating costs for printers
- improving work safety
- prevention of anilox roll scoring & premature wear
- sustainable production methods and use of materials
- extended doctor blade life
New Flexo Concepts doctor blades for even better printing results on corrugated board
The use of new materials and technologies led to the development of TruPoint UHMW, an extremely durable doctor blade for both metering and containment.
Next came TruPoint Orange. This was the first plastic doctor blade to beat traditional steel doctor blades in all areas. Both in terms of longevity, safety, avoidance of scoring, and prevention of ink spitting, as well as unprecedented metering precision.
By developing innovative corrugated blades, such as TruPoint DuraPoint and TruPoint Green, Flexo Concepts achieved optimal printing results in corrugated board printing. TruePoint Green’s material makes it even more resistant to wear and creeping than steel. And its excellent stiffness and spring guarantee that the blade’s edge remains in close contact with the anilox roll. This results in optimal graphic quality, even on corrugated board. Moreover, the use of recaptured carbon reduces its ecological impact, which is why it is rightly called Green.
