Doctor Blades can be used to print and coat paper, films such as PET, BOPP, PVC, and foils used in packaging, labelling, publications, corrugated products and displays, metal decoration and printed electronics.  But how well do Esterlam blades work against steel?

Do they meter as well as steel?

 YES. As printing technology has advanced, so to have Esterlam doctor blades creating significant advantages over steel in today’s modern printing environment. Longer life, elimination of roller scoring and less roller wear, improved operator safety all add to improving productivity when using Esterlam blades. Consistent high-quality performance in all areas of flexo printing and gravure coating has lead to many leading corporations worldwide changing to the Esterlam blades.  Further evidence can be seen in an FQC project carried out by the FTA in the USA, which tested the Esterlam synthetic doctor blade against carbon and stainless steel to see the effect of doctor blade material on dot gain.  The report summary showed that the Esterlam blades actually caused less dot gain than steel.  A full copy of the report is available from the FTA or Esterlam can give further details on request.

Do they last longer than steel?

YES, Esterlam blades are designed to run with less pressure than traditional steel blades and also have special self-lubricating characteristics, Esterlam doctor blades last significantly longer than steel in all ink formulations. Longer life means less blade changes, less machine stoppages means less start ups and less waste. It also helps to increase production time and productivity.

With 40+ years’ experience supplying tailored bevelled & many different size step/lamella edge profiles, Esterlam can provide the perfect blade solution to optimize production processes.  They have the products, experience and the technical support needed.

UK’s Esterlam wins major new contract in South China  

By | Esterlam | No Comments

Following the Shenzhen International Lithium Battery Power Technology Exhibition (IBTE) at the end of 2017 in China, Esterlam has successfully secured a MAJOR new contract for the supply of their new Electronics Doctor Blade.

IBTE is the world’s largest exhibition of lithium-ion technology, with over 35,000 professional buyers for the domestic new energy electric vehicles, lithium, mobile phones, power tools.

Based in the UK, Esterlam are Global leaders in providing doctor blades for the printing and coating industries.  Having developed the world’s first synthetic doctor blade over 40 years ago, Esterlam have now created a specialised new blade for coated electronic applications.

Commercial Director Neil Hailey said “It was such a great exhibition to attend and gave us the opportunity to introduce our new blade face-to-face.  Following the exhibition, we visited several of the leading companies in this emerging technology and were able to find out more about their industries.  We are delighted to learn that one of these visits has already resulted in a major new deal for our electronics blade.”

The contract is set to secure Esterlam’s position as leaders in this rapidly growing market with other leading electronics companies expected to follow suit very soon.

“The renewable energy market is set to increase dramatically over the next few years as millions of new electric vehicles will be made,” added John Hailey, Esterlam Managing Director.  “With diesel sales plummeting, car buyers appear to be switching to plug-in vehicles in greater numbers than ever before which is one area our blade is very successfully used.  Our blades are now being used for a range of production applications from battery separators for electric vehicles to aerospace and printed electronics to flat panel displays, photovoltaics and mobile phone technology.  These specially developed blades are at the forefront of new technologies.”

Backed by government policies — China’s battery companies are beginning to dominate an industry which has been led for three decades by South Korean and Japanese manufacturers such as Panasonic, which makes the battery cells for Tesla cars.

Lithium-ion batteries revolutionised the consumer electronics market after Sony commercialised them in 1981. From the Walkman to the iPhone they are an essential part of the gadgets used in everyday life. Now they are set to play an equally significant role in transportation, energy harvesting & storage and helping to reduce our dependency on oil.

Esterlam’s NEW E Series Doctor blades – Leading the charge in electronic markets

By | Esterlam | No Comments

Based in the UK, Esterlam are Global leaders in providing doctor blades for today’s demanding printing and coating industries. Having developed the world’s first synthetic doctor blade over 40 years ago, Esterlam have now set new standards for the future of coated electronic applications.

Commercial Director Neil Hailey said “In real terms, this means our special E Series blade is perfect for a whole range of applications from battery separators for electric vehicles to aerospace and printed electronics to flat panel displays, photovoltaics and mobile phone technology. These specially developed blades are at the forefront of new technologies.”
Utilising the latest developments in advanced polymer technology, Esterlam’s innovative E Series have improved spring characteristics giving greater consistency and control over coat weights from start to finish. “Greater control means less wastage, increased yields and improved productivity,” added Neil. “Their self-lubricated qualities mean longer blade life with abrasive ceramic and graphite applications, plus significant reductions in roller wear and scoring.”

The growing renewable energy market is set to increase dramatically over the next few years as millions of new electric vehicles will be made. The UK electric car market has exceeded expectations in September with plug-in cars representing 3.5% of all new cars sales. With diesel sales plummeting, car buyers appear to be switching to plug-in vehicles in greater numbers than ever before.

Backed by government policies — China’s battery companies are beginning to dominate an industry which has been led for three decades by South Korean and Japanese manufacturers such as Panasonic, which makes the battery cells for Tesla cars.

Lithium-ion batteries revolutionised the consumer electronics market after Sony commercialised them in 1981. From the Walkman to the iPhone they form a central part of the gadgets in everyday life. Now they are set to play an equally significant role in transportation, helping to reduce the dependence on oil.

“As carmakers invest more heavily in electric vehicles the lithium-ion battery will be a key technology for at least the next decade,” said Esterlam Managing Director John Hailey. “With years of ongoing development, our E blade is already being utilized in this very exciting area. We already supply blades for a host of different industries in over 100 countries globally and we look forward to continued success within this new industry.”
As well as coatings for battery separators for electric cars, bikes, buses, trams,

fork lifts trucks, boats, planes, drones, Esterlam’s specifically developed E Series is also being used for RFID tags, mobile phone batteries, energy harvesting and storing, touch screens, plasma screens and OLED screens, microgravure, printed electronics and Photo Voltaic films.

“The applications are endless,” added Neil. “We keep innovating and providing solutions that work and we’re so fortunate to have such an experienced global technical team at the heart of everything we do.”
