New Chamber Wrap Doctor Blades Save Makeready Time
Chamber Wrap Doctor Blades save printers makeready time and clean up hassles. Chamber Wrap blades come with plastic film attached to the doctor blade. When installed in a doctor blade holder, the plastic wraps around the holder and is self- fastening to the chamber body. Ink that normally builds up on the doctor blade chamber instead builds up on the film wrap. When the doctor blade is removed from the chamber, all the mess is removed with it! This is especially effective for capturing the excess ink generated from back doctoring. All the chamber hardware (pins, bars, bolts, clamping assembly) stays clean saving hours of clean up work.
Chamber Wrap is being applied to steel, mylar and long-life doctor blade material such as the BTG DuroBlade. Blades are running on a wide variety of presses with both OEM and retrofit doctor blade holders. Chamber Wrap blades are also available with the foam seal that The Provident Group
is widely known for.
“With ever increasing pressures to reduce changeover time, printers are looking for every advantage they can find” says David Allen, Director of Sales & Marketing for The Provident Group
. “In addition doctor blade holders will not work properly unless they are clean and properly maintained. Chamber Wrap insures holders stay clean for the
longest possible time. Clean holders mean more trouble-free production.”
Chamber Wrap marks the second innovation awarded a United States patent being manufactured by The Provident Group (US Patent 6,796,231). The first was the highly successful foam seal attached to the doctor blade which is marketed as the Rx Doctor Blades. “We are always working on unique solutions for printing problems” adds Allen. “Many companies offer doctor blades that do a good job doctoring ink, we strive to deliver doctor blades that do more!”
Chamber Wrap and Rx Doctor Blades with the foam seal are manufactured exclusively by The Provident Group located in Concord, New Hampshire. Hundreds of customers around the world have benefited from the unique doctor blade solutions provided by Provident.
