Product category: Doctor blades

300 serie

PrimeBlade® 300 serie is our basic, but very commonly used, type of carbon steel used at printing houses worldwide. The base steel material is made from genuine high quality Swedish steel. Together with our Swedish raw material supplier and end users, the doctor blade was produced to improve production quality, blade lifespan and to increase machine speeds. This thanks to the increased amount of carbides/µm² in the steel microstructure, compared to cheap and low quality carbon steel.

400 serie

PrimeBlade® 400 serie is a good choice of blade to use when corrosion is an issue. It has enhanced properties against rust problems when water based inks are used. Also very good against fast oxidation of the blade tip and abrasive conditions. It is produced with a refined particle microstructure and denser particle distribution. That helps to avoid steel particle contamination of the inking system and improves doctor blade life.
The steel is a hardened stainless steel and heat treated to reach our high quality standards.

600 serie

PrimeBlade® 600 serie is the high quality type carbon steel, compared to other carbon steel blades, and a further development of the 300 serie. The doctor blade steel has a highly refined microstructure compared to other carbon doctor blades, and a modified steel grade and heat treatment. The PrimeBlade® 600 doctor blade has twice as many carbides/µm² compared to the already improved PrimeBlade® 300. So it wears down into much finer particles and cause less print issues when used.

700 serie

The PrimeBlade® 700 series is our ceramic coated doctor blade, developed by combining our unique surface grinding and special surface treatment technology. This improves the coating adhesive bond and wear resistance compared to existing coated products. It can even be an alternative for PrimeBlade® 900 Nano I blade users, especially for rotogravure printers.

The high grade steel together with the special ceramic particle surface coating technology gives a very low doctor blade tip contact friction, enhanced lifetime, and gives an extraordinarily clean wipe. It reduces the brittleness and cracking risk in the ceramic coating area, and lessens the risk of blade damage due to mechanical impact. Also, due to the refined steel and extra fine ceramic particles used, it reduces the ink contamination that causes higher wear on chrome cylinders.

800 serie

PrimeBlade 800 is a newly developed long life-blade material, for use by both flexo and gravure printers.

The microstructure of the PrimeBlade 800 steel consists of finely distributed small carbides, giving it an exceptional wear resistance and performance better than many alternatives.

900 Nano I serie

PrimeBlade 900 Nano I has been developed together with partners in Nano technology, to treat and produce different steel qualities optimizing the properties and performance.

The microstructure of the PrimeBlade 900 steel consists of finely distributed, small carbides, giving it an exceptional wear resistance, reduced friction and higher printing performance.

PrimeBlade 900 Nano I is produced by using the latest Nano technology, with the idea of not using the ceramic & nickel coatings that are used today; resulting in none of the side effects these coatings can have on environment, brittleness and other issues.

It´s a revolutionary patented metallurgic-treated steel blade which will extend blade life to hitherto unseen levels in non-ceramic coated blades in both flexo and gravure applications. The blade will outlast any non-ceramic blade on the market, without any of the brittleness associated with long life blades, with no extra consequent anilox roll/gravure cylinder wear and at a competitive price.

Today many of the flexible printers are looking for solutions that will improve the financial bottom line by; increasing productivity, printing quality and reducing the downtime due to the lack of blade longevity. PrimeBlade Nano I will be a part of that solution. Additional products will follow shortly, developed especially for white inks wear problems and for printers that want to increase the life time even further.

PrimeSeals End Seals

As a supplement to the doctor blades, PrimeBlade Sweden AB also supplies the high quality PrimeSeal ink chamber end seals.

The PrimeSeal end seals come in many material types and each type is tailored to the customer needs. It is of most importance to use a high quality end seal to prevent the chamber from leaking and to avoid end seal friction issues. This to be able to use the end seal for longer runs or multiple jobs, especially important if a long life doctor blade is used in the chamber system. The PrimeSeal end seal products are made for optimum fit in the chamber and perfect seal against the anilox.

Company details

PRIMEBLADE – THE SWEDISH DOCTOR BLADE

PrimeBlade Sweden AB is a global manufacturer and supplier of Doctor Blades for flexo, gravure, offset printers, and coating applications. Together with our Swedish raw material supplier and end users the doctor blade was produced to improve production quality, blade life, and to increase machine speeds.

Our Doctor Blades are available in all different edge types, standard thicknesses and widths. They are supplied in 100 meter / 328 foot rolls in easy-to-use cassettes, or cut in lengths to meet your needs.

The pre-ground blades have radius-ground edges, enhancing blade functionality. The blade and cylinders last longer than conventional blades. The pressure exerted by the blade on the cylinders is constant, eliminating uneven blade wear.
