TKM Opti Print®

TKM OptiPrint doctor blades, designed for gravure and flexographic printing, are multi-purpose blades, gentle to your cylinders, manufactured of premium carbon steel with a high chromium content. The fine micro-steel structure wears down powdery, preventing contamination from detached steel particles throughout the entire inking and doctoring system for a constantly high level of print quality.

Of course, we supply back-up blades suitable for our high-performance doctor blades and your individual applications.
