How Ionix works in folder to eliminate static in the feeder

Ionix Static Eliminator for foldersSince most small format printing is now done on copiers or digital printers, the problem of feeder static is more prevalent. There is static in the paper from the digital imaging process. In folders, these paper sheets with static will not easily separate in the pile feeder. Folder operators experience misfeeds leading to paper jams in the feeder.

To eliminate static in folder feeders, an Ionix is installed in the pressure or blast air line going from the feeder pump to the feeder. The Ionix can be installed at any point in the main air line going to the feeder. However, install Ionix before any lines branch off from the main blast air line since all air going to the feeder needs to be treated by going through the Ionix. When the compressor air goes through the Ionix, the feeder mechanism blows out the air between the paper sheets which is acting like an electrical insulator and replaces it with air that acts like an electrical conductor which discharges the static on the interior surfaces of the paper. This eliminates the static attraction within the paper in the feeder.

Ionix for folders are sized based upon 1. the maximum sheet size of the folder and 2. the inside diameter of the main blower air hose. Therefore, in order to install Ionix on a sheet feeding folder you must have this information.

For folders capable of feeding a sheet up to 20" (510MM) wide:

for 1/2" (10MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 200-2
for 3/4" (20MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 200-3
for 1" (25MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 200-4
for 1 1/4" (30MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 200-5
for 1 1/2" (40MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 400-6
for 1 3/4" (45MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 400-7
for 2" (50MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 400-8

For folders capable of feeding a sheet over 20" (510MM) wide and up to 26" (650MM) wide:

for 1/2" (10MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 300-2
for 3/4" (20MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 300-3
for 1" (25MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 300-4
for 1 1/4" (30MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 300-5
for 1 1/2" (40MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 400-6
for 1 3/4" (45MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 400-7
for 2" (50MM) inside diameter feeder air hose: Ionix Model 400-8

Static in collators

Generally, if static occurs in collators it is due to copied or digitally imaged paper in the individual bins of a collator which will not separate. To dissipate this static and cause the paper to separate, an Ionix needs to be installed in the blast air line going from the air pump to the bins in the collator. Identify the pressure air line going from the pump to the collating tower.

Some newer collators do not use an air compressor. Instead they use turbines or fans to generate separating air. Since these turbines are built into the collator and there is no air blast pressure line, there is no method to introduce Ionix into the air feed system.

Static in die cutters, laminators and other sheet feeding bindery equipment

Generally if your machine is a sheet feeding machine with air separating the sheets, an Ionix can be installed in the feeder air system to eliminate static causing sheet misfeeds. However, if the static problem in the delivery, please contact Ionix for proper sizing.

Static in bookbinding machines

Generally, static is bookbinding machines such as saddlebinder, perfect binders or case binding occurs in one of two areas. If the static is in the gathering pockets, static in the signatures cause misfeeds. This problem can be remedied by installing the proper Ionix in the air separation line blowing into the signature pockets.

Static also causes misfeeding in cover feeder attachments in binding machines. This is remedied by installing an Ionix in the air line going to the feeder pocket. In both cases, your should contact Ionix for proper sizing the initial Ionix installation.
