MDC ROTOSTAR REPLACES MDC IBOSTAR
Daetwyler SwissTec replace MDC IBOSTAR with MDC ROTOSTAR. The MDC ROTOSTAR will then be available for all gravure applications. It is specially developed as an entry-level product in the coated gravure doctor blades market.
SMALL BATCH SIZES ARE CHALLENGING THE PACKAGING INDUSTRY
Product variations with small to medium batch sizes are presenting packaging manufacturers with even greater challenges. Increases in efficiency and cost savings are associated with this. The MDC ROTOSTAR is precisely designed to print small to medium jobs quickly and efficiently in gravure over short lead times without additional doctor blade changes.
• Made for gravure printing
• Suitable for mid-run jobs
• Reduces hasing and streaks
MDC ROTOSTAR provides optimum doctoring from the first contact with the gravure cylinder. There is no need to run-in the doctor blade. Clean doctoring throughout the entire printing process is ensured thanks to an additional low-friction soft coating. This means that the doctor blade pressure can be set to a required minimum right from the start, which has a positive effect on chrome wear of the gravure cylinder. In addition, the MDC ROTOSTAR is provided with an all-round coating that offers optimum corrosion protection, regardless of whether solvent or water-based inks are used.
