    Working with a sthal 26" folder. Our sheets are printed and aqueous coated right out of the press. And were fighting static problems; Tried water in buckets at folder, tried static elimanator bars and these help very little if at all, Tried grounding the folder (like an extra earth ground besides the input power ground. Not haveing any luck. Need new ideas!!!! This crap gets old fighting problems like this. I'm woundering what you guys are doing to prevent this or how you cope with the issue. And YES I know about the tensil and it doesnt work very good. Thanks Brady

    There are new rollers out there that are antistatic (they have some sort of metal in them.) Call your vendor. If they don't know PM me and I will call my guy.

    We've used a vaporizer to get the humidity levels up. Usually helps.
