Offers corrosion resistance and easy handling in flexo printingTresu’s new light-weight carbon fibre chamber doctor bladesTresu 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.
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 situationsThe 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.
