The MDC LongLife has already revolutionised the printing industry since its market launch. Thanks to the specially developed Longlife coating, print qualities and service lives have been achieved in printing that were previously unimaginable. Today, large and small printers all over the world trust the quality of MDC doctor blades, especially the MDC LongLife.
The new MDC LongLife Pro was specifically designed by Daetwyler SwissTec for gravure printing applications. The company had already gained more than 50 years of experience with coated doctor blades in the printing industry which have been incorporated into this development. Gravure printers are facing great challenges. Efficiency increases and cost savings are daily topics in the pressroom. The MDC LongLife Pro was developed precisely to meet these requirements.
The MDC LongLife Pro achieves outstanding quality immediately without run-in times. Once the blade has been set up, the doctoring is clean and constant over the entire run length. This is the essential and crucial advantage of the MDC LongLife Pro.
With the MDC LongLife Pro Daetwyler SwissTec has managed to print consistently over the entire runtime with minimal contact pressure as well with one machine setup. In addition, this special feature results in less friction in the contact zone, which has a positive effect on the chrome wear of the gravure cylinder
