Ink Innovations (www.inkinnovations.net) says it developed the new Ergo-Force Squeegee Blade for garment printers who wish to optimize the performance of Ink Innovations’s aluminum Ergo-Force squeegee handle. According to the company, the 64-durometer Ergo-Force-Blade will deposit greater amounts of ink than typical 70- and 75-durometer blades, yet will have the feel of a stiffer blade, when installed in an Ergo-Force squeegee handle. Ink Innovations explains that the softer squeegee blade conforms better to irregularities of any given substrate and improves coverage significantly when printing over a white underbase. The purple, 64A, Ergo-Force-Blade is made of urethane, can be used with manual and automatic presses, and is made to the industry standard size of 2 in. (51 mm) wide by 0.375 in. (9.5 mm) thick. Each blade is imprinted with a Best Before date.
