Title: Doctor blade system

Abstract: A doctor blade system with clamping device is provided for clamping a doctor blade, for example, in a doctor blade chamber without using screws and without having to use tools. A clamping mechanism, preferably pneumatic, counteracts the clamping by actuation. By disposing a sectional rail between the clamping rail and the doctor beam, the sectional rail drawing the clamping rail and the beam together with a spring mechanism, the doctor blade is clamped between the clamping rail and the beam. In another embodiment, the clamping rail is designed as an angular section tipping about an edge.
