An offset printer produces a large electrostatic charge.
This charge causes various problems such as: two-sheet feeding, sticking to the feeder board, ink splashing, sticking to the drum, uneven powder application, paper jam/misalignment in the paper discharge section and errors in the next process.
Using a static eliminator can prevent these problems.
- Running cost is high.
Handled by workers
- Cost increase due to increased labor cost
Countermeasures with static eliminators (ionizers)
Costs can be reduced.
Cost of antistatic agent: $1,000/month x 12 months = $12,000 (when the amount used is reduced by half)
Labor cost per line: $200/month x 12 months = $2,400/year
