PrimeBlade to invest huge amount to develop next generation of doctor blades


Swedish based doctor blade producer PrimeBlade Sweden AB is investing approximately € 750.000 to develop the next generation of doctor blades for the flexo, gravure, offset & coating industry.

The printing & packing industry is facing increased demands, where quality, productivity and prices are the main focus in order to meet the future demands. PrimeBlade is investing in the latest grinding technology to increase the quality and productivity even further. Investments also include taking the award nominated 900 Nano I doctor blades to the next level, including the development of Nano II and III.

The next generation of Nano blades will include Nano II (water based inks) and Nano III for the really long life solutions, including solutions for very abrasive inks, like white ink etc.

Very important is to notice is that the Nano products do not include any ceramic particles that could be abrasive towards the cylinders and aniloxes.

PrimeBlade operates via partners and agents on a worldwide basis, with sales and exports to approximately 60 countries.
