Tresu’s new light-weight carbon fibre chamber doctor blades

Easy handling flexo printing solutions

Tresu Group’s new lightweight carbon fibre chamber doctor blades offer improved chemical resistance, optimized flow and safe, easy handling in all flexo printing situations

Tresu Group has launched a programme of lightweight carbon fibre chamber doctor blades, offering improved chemical resistance, optimized flow and safe, easy handling in all flexo printing situations. The carbon fibre composition gives the chamber high-strength qualities, enabling a relatively low weight of between 2.4 kg and 4.1 kg a linear metre, thus easing chamber exchange. Inside the chamber, a top-coated ink-repellent surface offers extra protection against ink and detergents with high and low pH values and ensures efficient, thorough cleaning after job completion. Furthermore, curved inner surfaces maximize volume and facilitate controlled discharge. The chamber’s design also enables ink and coating circulation in relatively low volumes.

The units offer pressure-controlled ink and coating circulation with manual or closed-loop control systems, like the Tresu F10 iCon Ink Control System. They feature Tresu’s patented seal system, preventing leakage, and stainless steel blades whose clamping system enables one of the fastest possible changeovers in the industry — within two minutes.

Because of its simplicity and high level of automation, the Tresu carbon fibre chamber can be cleaned and prepared without being removed from the press, shortening makeready times. Henrik Kristensen, vice president, Tresu Ancillary, said, “Thanks to its time-saving advantages, optimized fluid control and resilience, the Tresu carbon fibre chamber offers a long-term solution for high productivity, low ownership costs and uniform quality.” All units are retrofittable with all of Tresu’s currently available chamber doctor blade systems.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
