SWED/CUT M-FLEX II
Refined microstructure for longer blade life and uniform edge wear.
SWED/CUT M-FLEX II® | Improvement Class Doctor Blades
M-FLEX® II performs particularly well for longer multi-shift runs with scheduled blade change environments in print and coating applications where consistent precise metering is required. M-FLEX® II is ideal for precise metering for solids, line work, screens, vignettes, and general process running water and solvent inks for market segments like: narrow web, label, envelope, carton, wide web flexible, multi-wall bags, kraft bags, post-print corrugated, and pre-print corrugated.

Available Blade Edge Profiles
The M-FLEX II® doctor blade is available in the following blade edge profiles.
The M-FLEX II® 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 M-FLEX II® 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.
