Absolute Certifies Flexo Concepts’ TruPoint Green Doctor Blade Plymouth, Massachusetts based Flexo Concepts has con- firmed that its TruPoint Green doctor blade has been au- thorized by Absolute Engineering for use with the com- pany’s carbon fibre chamber systems. After conducting extensive testing, technicians at the UK-based chamber producer found TruPoint Green to be a solid option in mid- high line screen corrugated metering applications. TruPoint Green was created in Flexo Concepts’ Doc- tor Blade Innovation Lab as an alternative for steel blades when increasing anilox line screens test the limits of UHMW’s metering capability. The blade’s excellent stiff- ness and spring properties allow the blade edge to main- tain good contact with the anilox roll and execute the de- livery of higher quality graphics. Green blades are drop-in replacements for UHMW and safer than steel in terms of preventing operator injuries and anilox roll scoring. “Flexo Concepts is proud to partner with Absolute En- gineering, a leader in the design and manufacture of car- bon fiber-chambered doctor blade systems,” says Kevin McLaughlin, President of Flexo Concepts. “By combining two cutting-edge technologies – Absolute’s carbon-fibre chamber systems and TruPoint Green’s plastic doctor blades – printers can maximize quality and productivity while improving safety.”
