Kadant Solutions (Auburn, MA) has extended its doctoring product line to include drum flaking applications with its new ProFlake doctor blade line. The blade uses a bi-metal technology for longer blade life, reduced operating costs, and improved flaker performance. In addition, they’re available in a variety of widths, thicknesses, and bevel configurations. Other features include:
- A non-brittle, wear-resistant alloy that allows the blade tip to maintain its doctoring edge throughout its life.
- A wearing edge that is more wear-resistant and harder than steel, according to the company.
- Blade holders that offer precise adjustment of the blade tip and fast blade changes.
