Blocking Of Sheets While Sheet Feeding Due To Static

Problem

Feeding film or paper into an offset sheet feed press (lithographic printing) can result in multiple sheets being fed into press at once due to electrostatic attraction between the media.
In addition the electrostatic charges on the media can result in sheet alignment problems due to the media sticking to the bed of the in feed.

Solution

Introducing ionised air using Meech 261 ionising nozzles between the sheets being fed will allow the sheets to moved freely, preventing press jams and alignment issues.
