MDC END SEALS – The End Seals jungle has come to an end
End seals are a complementary product for doctor blades. The end seals are required for the flexographic printing process in order to seal the chamber doctor blade system cleanly and to prevent the paint from escaping. Together with the doctor blades, the end seals form a necessary part of the chamber doctor blade system. Both act by contact with the anilox roller as wear parts and affect the system of ink transfer and each other. In this context, a new concept for end seals was developed. Here, the MDC End seals are divided in three different quality and price levels according to the material properties and are offered to the customers according to their running time and MDC doctor blade quality used. The three quality levels have the following designations: MDC Regular, MDC Advanced and MDC Expert.
The distribution partners are informed about all available dimensions and materials by the developed MDC End Seals booklet. The MDC End Seals Booklet is intended to serve as a tool to facilitate communication between Daetwyler SwissTec and its distributors, as well as between distributors and end users. With this concept, Daetwyler SwissTec creates a standard that helps customers out of the jungle of end seals and offers a fitting solution for MDC end seals for the already used MDC doctor blades.
