Setting and maintaining the proper doctor blade angle is critical to maximize doctoring performance. The AngleSet gauge is used to set the proper angle for doctor blades and scrapers for improved doctoring performance. Applications include creping, drum flaking, and converting equipment.
To determine blade angle, the AngleSet gauge is placed on the roll surface with the foot's center line at the point of blade contact. This establishes a tangential reference. The gauge is then placed on the doctor blade surface to measure the actual doctor blade angle. The blade angle can be read directly from the digital display without changing the orientation of the sensor with respect to the housing.
