ANTI STATIC SYSTEM FOR SUPER WIDE PRINTERS

The normal handling of media such as Foamex and Dibond can create huge amounts of stored energy.


Delivery to site, removal of the protective film, in house transportation and pre cleaning all charge the sheets of media with high voltage electricity.


Anti static solutions generally fitted by OEM’s are outdated and inefficient.


Many print related quality issues are related to poor handling of static stored in media and/or generated during the printing process. 


Our system not only eliminates almost all static related issues it also is:

  • Smaller & lighter
  • Cheaper to maintain
  • Uses less power at a lower voltage
  • All parts are available separately
  • Annual maintenance is simple
  • 12 Month Parts warranty
  • Mountings can re-used or re-made to fit most printers
  • Installed and re tested after 2 years of production use with no loss of functionality

There is a document at the bottom of the page called "What is static and how to cure it" please take a few minutes to read it for an explanation on how & what static does to cause loss of production.
