SWED/CUT

ELIMINATOR®

Improved ink metering for fewer print defects and mid-run press stops. 

SWED/CUT ELIMINATOR® Doctor Blade

ELIMINATOR® combines corrosion resistant micro-refined chemistry with physical dimension and extended bevel to combat UV spitting and other similar print defects. It is a top performer for long running printing and coating applications requiring consistent and precise metering. ELIMINATOR® is helpful in combating ink and coating metering issues for UV spitting. It precisely meters for solids, line work, screens, vignettes, and general process.

Microstructure Matters

The ELIMINATOR® combines corrosion resistant micro-refined chemistry with physical dimension and extended bevel to combat UV spitting and other similar print defects. It is a top performer for long running printing and coating applications requiring consistent and precise metering.

Compared to standard strip steel, the ELIMINATOR® doctor blade’s microstructure is defined by it’s small and evenly distributed carbide particulate which assures slow and even edge wear, low friction, and smooth ink film formation.  For you that means a higher quality doctor blade that reduces the likelihood of common print defects, reduces wear to your anilox rolls, and allows you to run your blades longer.
