In gravure printing it is often difficult to know what the angle is between doctor blade and printing cylinder.

The desired angle should between 55-65 degrees. There are some tools out on the market, but unfortunately they are not very accurate. And a wrongly set doctor blade angle can create a lot of issues, like haze, lines and other printing problems.

PrimeBlade are now proud to offer a tool that helps gravure printers to better be able to know the set doctor blade angle. The angle gauge is produced in a size that the operator can keep it in their pocket and is handy to use when changing doctor blades.

The PrimeBlade Angle Gauge comes in two sizes. One from circumference 300mm to 785mm and the other from circumference 785mm to > 6.280mm. It is delivered in a plastic pouch for protection.
