GHH36 – Electrode Charging

High voltage generators generate positive and negative high voltage which is passed on to the charging bars mounted in the folder. The positive and negative bars are arranged in opposition to each other. The ribbons pass between them. The resulting force causes the paper ribbons to attract each other, the air in between is displaced and the ribbons are pressed against each other. The press can run at higher speed with better folder accuracy.
