In today's printing industry there is a requirement for high quality brushes as bristle brushes are used to clean printing plates. They are an important component of many offset press sheet feeder, sheet steadier and press blanket wash systems. Static electricity is a major problem in the printing and engraving industry. During the printing process, the most important factor effecting the quality of the products is static electricity. Strong static electrical charges can even cause sparking or fire. Anti-static brushes are used where there is a need to reduce particle contamination from a static charge. Anti-static, Thunderon® brushes, and Corona Cord™ material are used to control and eliminate static electricity. Different types of rollers (commonly used for holding down materials, straightening the product or to help move along paper) and block brushes are used in high speed presses.
