The PrintBlade range

Quality, reliability and supply chain security.


With ever increasing demands for higher quality print and productivity, fast and direct access to the world’s finest doctor blades is invaluable.

PrintBlade combine high quality products with friendly, fast and reliable service. We know that while the doctor blade is not the costliest element in the printing process, it can be the most critical.

That’s why we work closely with our customers to ensure precise, clean ink metering, long blade lifespan and a secure supply chain, so you never lose valuable production time because of a doctor blade problem.

We use only the best European steel and manufacture to the highest quality in our Sheffield manufacturing facility. We combine the latest technology and the expertise of our technical and production teams to ensure every blade we produce is durable, accurate and supplied with your exact requirements in mind.

Every PrintBlade product is manufactured in the UK by a highly skilled, specialist workforce in an ISO9001 certified factory. Our technology guarantees accuracy.

High quality doctor blades are the only way to achieve a consistent ink distribution. Doctor blades are a relatively low cost item, but have a massive impact on your costs and finished quality.

PrintBlade continues to develop and react to challenges in our demanding market. Our goal is to offer our printers a precision wipe of ink to create a consistent ink transfer, with a blade that is durable and efficient.

We recently carried out a series of trials of our PB10 range against a comparable blade from one of the market leaders. Below are just some of the comments received.

Trials were successful, PB10 performed better than the standard competitor blade where we were experiencing ‘spitting’ problems. The PB10 blade delivered good results with no spitting.’
