FLXON’S Ryan Sharkey – VP Sales is scheduled to present a presentation on Recent Doctor Blade Technology Advancements and Why They Matter at the upcoming Harper Road Show in Fullerton, CA on Thursday, June 15th.

This presentation will discuss advances in doctor blade technology that meet the demands of HD FLEXO, especially at high speeds. It will answer questions related to selecting between different grades of steels, if plastic makes sense, coated blades, which thickness and edge is right for your application and address safety concerns.  Ultimately this presentation will help you determine which blade is a best value option in your pressroom.

Mr. Sharkey’s presentation will include ways to:

  • Prevent dot gain and dirty print – even on long runs
  • Eliminate back doctoring, end seal leaking, and UV spitting
  • Lower doctor blade use and annual spend
  • Reduce downtime and mid-run press stops
  • Prevent anilox wear and damage
