A paper sheet is charged with static electricity by the friction with and separation from the rollers.
The charged paper sheet gets trapped by the roller due to the force that makes the sheet partially stick together or cling to the roller.
Paper and fabric are easily affected by humidity and this problem often occurs in dry environments.
Conventional static eliminator
- The static elimination speed is insufficient.
- The static elimination status is not clear.
Countermeasures with static eliminators (ionizers)
An ionizer can eliminate static electricity which could not be eliminated completely with conventional methods while visualizing the effects.
Although the disposal cost when complaints arise depends on the product type or frequency, significant losses are expected. Consequently, measures against static electricity were mandatory.
