There are numerous points during the commercial printing processes where static electricity can be generated and cause problems in production and risks to both staff and machinery.
When any media, whether paper or film is fed into the printing press, it’s very possible that static is generated between sheets. This will cause in mis-feeding, where multiple sheets are fed through and alignment problems in a range of known printing presses.
The folding process, again provides another opportunity where static can be generated causing production problems, and high speed folding proceses are even more susceptible to such problems.
Conveyor systems also pose problems with static being created between sheets or at the stack creating jams, uneven and poor product quality during collation.
