Tresu Group, a global supplier of flexo presses and ancillaries for the flexo and offset printing market, will show developments in its chamber doctor blade systems for narrow- and mid-web at Labelexpo India. The company will exhibit at the stand of its recently appointed agency, Capital Graphic Supplies (New Delhi), Stand K18.
The new agency offers a fast, accredited and direct source of Tresu Ancillary consumable products and systems at competitive prices, as well as technical support and expertise.
The Tresu FlexiPrint Reservoir Chamber Doctor Blade System is a show highlight for narrow-web water- and UV-flexo presses. It eliminates splashing, requires no ink pump and facilitates fast, effortless changeover. The system locks with ease into any position in the printing sequence. Uniform ink coverage is assured on the anilox roll, even when volumes are as low as 0.2 litres.
Also on display will be the Tresu FlexiPrint IMW Chamber Doctor Blade System E-Line, for water-, UV- and solvent based inks and mid-web flexo coating. This system has been enhanced to include, as an option, Tresu's pressure control technology for foam sensitive inks and coatings. This unique technology maintains a constant barrier between the chamber doctor blade and the rotating open anilox cells, preventing air-bubbles from entering the ink chamber. Furthermore, both chamber doctor blades include Tresu's E-Line doctor-blade changing system for safe blade-switching in less than one minute.
All Tresu chamber doctor blade systems now include Tresu Next Generation Seals. There is a range of seals for any printing situation, flexible to suit all anilox roll sizes (from ø60mm to ø450mm), all doctor blade lengths, and all Tresu ink chambers. The seal eliminates the risk of leakage or spillage, even at speeds of up to 300m/min by creating an airtight barrier. This also enables leftover ink to be stored for long periods, without evaporation or deterioration in quality.
"Our range of chamber doctor blades enables us to provide a unique service to each individual printer," says Henrik Kristensen, sales director, Tresu Ancillary. "We can assure quality results at high print speeds and minimise make-ready time. Tresu is constantly working with leading flexo and offset press manufacturers and specifically major narrow-web manufacturers on chamber solutions, to develop adapted versions which seamlessly fit into the any press design."
Tresu has partnerships with several of the world's leading flexo and offset press makers, developing a wide range of auxiliary products for narrow-, mid- and wide-web printing and coating situations. The company has also recently launched Tresu Webshop, so customers can order original ancillary and spare parts as well as consumables directly and at highly competitive prices with authenticity guaranteed.
