Using CAD-Driven Equipment to Create Custom End Seals

End SealsEnd seals are a vital part of modern printing applications. With today’s CAD-driven processes, these valuable components are easy to customize in accordance with your operation’s needs. Turn to a company that offers specialized cutting equipment and enjoy all of the benefits of contemporary custom seals, including:

  • Personalization – Depending on your equipment and its intended use, any number of specific designs might be necessary to deliver the right results when you print. Because seals made with CAD-driven technology are easy to customize and create using various materials, they offer tailored precision without a hassle. Some of the available materials include foam, rubber, felt, and composite.
  • Replication – Since CAD systems can easily replicate an existing design, even highly customized variants are easy to reproduce with quick turnarounds. This is ideal for larger operations in need of numerous seals, as well as ensuring that quality replacements are easy to obtain when needed.
  • Cost-Effectiveness – In addition to saving time and delivering dependable results, CAD-driven cutting equipment creates the seals you need without breaking the bank. Those savings don’t come at the cost of quality, either. Superior to die-cut equipment, these designs help you avoid issues like warpage, concave edges, and chamber leakage.

Using Graphite Doctor Blades

Composite BladeGraphite composite blades need to be effective if they are going to deliver the results you are after. Similar in function to standard metal blades, these graphite doctor blades are perfectly manufactured to be used for flexo applications with laser engraved ceramic anilox rolls that have less than 500 LPI screens.

Featuring graphite lubricating characteristics, these blades offer a long lifespan when they are being used with abrasive water-based inks on large ceramic anilox rolls. These doctor blades are provided in a seal relief shape, which helps to reduce end seal distortion at the blade. It is also effective at reducing end seal ink leakage.

Graphite doctor blades are typically used for the creation of higher-end graphics in corrugated applications. You will be able to find these blades in 20, 25, and 35 mil thicknesses. Finding the right combination of material, shapes, and thickness is a must if you are going to get the results you are after when it comes time to work on your project. That is why you must work with an educated manufacturer to discuss your needs so they can guide you towards the perfect option to fit your specific needs. The right choice delivers the right results.
