Absolute Engineering Ltd

Carbon Fiber Chamber, Reverse Angle and Low Ink Loss Doctor Blades

Chambered doctor blade systems and single reverse angle blade systems manufactured from woven carbon fibre.

Absolute are a leading supplier of carbon fibre ink doctoring systems for both new flexopresses and retrofits. We manufacture all our products from a unique woven carbon fibre and supply:

Carbon Fiber Closed Chambered Doctor Blade

Our carbon fiber chambered doctor blade products are totally enclosed and ensure consistent anilox doctoring. Rapid tool-less blade and seal change, ink repelling surface and the low pressure doctoring system all ensure unbeatable minimum downtime figures.

Uniblade Single Reverse Angle Doctor Blade

A single reverse angle doctor blade that has all the characteristics of our market leading closed chamber doctor blade, encompassed in a simple economical single blade design.

Low Ink Loss I-MAX Chambered Doctor Blade

Giving all the advantages of our chamber, but with the additional benefit of ink loss on a typical 100" (2500mm) flexo unit color change of less than 0.1 gallon (0.3 litre).

All our ink metering systems are supplied with our unbeatable 15 year guarantee against corrosion. This ensures years of maintenance free production, unlike aluminium Teflon coated chamber systems

Our woven carbon fiber material is 300% stiffer than the same section in aluminium, guaranteeing color consistency in widths up to 240" (6,000mm)

Woven carbon fiber is also stable in environments with significant temperature change, and so is guaranteed not to twist or warp as a custom Urethane cavity can.

Absolute provide systems for both OEM customers and as retrofits for end users.
