Doctor blade

Doctor blades are thin and ground tools used to remove excess transfer media off the surface of anilox rollers (in flexo printing) or printing cylinders (in gravure printing). The core task of the doctor blade is to ensure that only the pre-defined amount of transfer media remains in the cells. Usually, doctor blades are made of stainless steel (coated or uncoated) but also composite materials are used.
