Agergaard Graphic Supplies GmbH - Press consumables for printing excellence

Agergaard Graphic Supplies GmbH is specialised in developing and manufacturing high-performance press consumables for the printing and packaging industry. The area of application ranges from narrow-web label printing to wide web flexible packaging, corrugated as well as folding boxes. Agergaard products are predominantly but not exclusively used in flexographic, sheet fed offset and gravure printing applications.

Operational cost savings with application-specific press consumables

Agergaard’s mission is to support printers in achieving more output, less machine downtime and ultimately in saving operational costs. We do so by providing product solutions that are tailored to the respective application and thus offer optimal functionality.

The main product categories are:

  • End seals for flexo printing decks and offset coating units
  • Doctor blades for flexo, gravure and offset printing
  • Wash up blades for offset printing
  • Filters for dampening water circulators and ink mist extraction
  • Wear parts for offset press feeder and delivery (e.g. slow down belts, rubber suckers)

High performance end seals for a leak-proof printing process

The purpose of end seals is to seal the outer ends of the chamber doctor blade system in a printing deck or coating unit. For optimal sealing function and long lifetime, it is important to adapt the seal shape to the chamber geometry and the seal material to the printing parameters such as ink type, printing speed, substrate, etc.

Agergaard end seals, traded under the name coatSEAL, are manufactured from high performance materials such as technical foams and felts as well as wear-resistant rubber and plastic types. The end seal range comprises more than 4000 different end seal designs, covering a large number of printing press brands and models. Special developments are also possible, since we have an in-house R&D department and a flexible production set up.

High precision doctor blades for a consistent ink transfer

Doctor blades wipe excessive ink from the anilox roller that transfers the ink to the printing plate. To make sure that the ink is transferred evenly and consistently, the material and the working edge design of the blade should fit to the respective printing application.

The Agergaard doctor blades range includes high grade steel and wear-resistant plastic materials. The steel types, traded under the name steelBLADE, include carbon steel, stainless steel and tooling steel which can be additionally surface-treated to increase the lifetime and anti-frictional properties of the blade. The plastic doctor blades, traded under the names polyBLADE and fiberBLADE are often used in corrugated or tissue production. Due to the material flexibility, plastic blades are also ideal for use as sealing blade along the ink chamber.

Wash up blades for quick ink changes in offset printing presses

Wash up blades are used for scraping off cleaning liquid and ink from the oscillating rollers in the offset printing deck. Agergaard’s washupBLADEs are made from wear resistant plastic with a special cleaning geometry that speeds up the cleaning process in comparison to conventional blades and allows to reduce the cleaner consumption.

Filters for a clean printing periphery

Agergaard offers a range of products for filtering the dampening water and ink mist in the offset printing process. The dampening water in offset is used to wet the non-printing surface of the printing plate. The filters make sure that the water conditions remain stable, cleaning it from dust and dirt occurring in the printing process. Ink mist extraction at the printing decks is crucial to prevent contamination of the press. Agergaard cleanFILTER products are available for all common dampening water units and press models.
