Doctor blade
Max Daetwyler Corporation
Huntersville, NC USA
The Softblade is constructed of carbon doctor blade steel and a durable nickel-based coated tip to protect the blade. Using the Softblade reduces defects in gravure printing and significantly reduces score lines in flexo applications, especially when running higher line counts. The product name does not reflect a softer base material.
