Doctor blades are a critical part of the gravure printing press and are highly engineered lengths of steel. To ensure the best printing results, the doctor blade angle should be set between 55° and 65° to the tangent of the gravure cylinder. When this is achieved issues like streaks, hazing, scumming and excessive cylinder wear are significantly reduced. With our devices, you can be sure your blades are at optimal angles.
