Low pressure doctoring

Or "Kiss impression touch" is a discinctive feature of all AkeBoose chamber systems, as doctor blades and end-seals are not being used as bearings. Every chamber, with its blades, is running at a minimum of pressure against the screen roller, due to a mechanical looked chamber positioning system, reducing wear of doctor blades, end-seals and screen roller significantly.

Optimal blade angles, asymmetric chamber
Optimal blade angels with asymmetrical chamber design
The truly asymmetrical NOVA XLS chamber system, with
optimized blade angels for both working- and sealing blade,
eliminates effectively problems like back doctoring,
scoring of rollers and ink spitting. 

Thinner doctor blades for better microwiping
Extra ordinary straightness and flatness is the key to Low pressure doctoring and AkeBoose HiQ Doctor Blades are carefully selected from the highest qualities of Swedish strip steel. All AkeBoose products are designed to use thinner, high quality doctor blades with Round Edges as standard for better microwiping at lower running expenses in flexo- and gravure printing.
