Humidification for Sheet-fed Offset Printing

In offset printing, it is very important to avoid double feed, misalignment, paper curl, bad stacking, and double offset.

Solution: industrial humidification systems

Low air humidity negatively affects printing equipment and increases the error rate and machine downtime. The level of static electricity increases especially during winter, leading to poorer product quality, misalignment, paper jams, double feeding, dust adhesion, and even the risk of fire. You can avoid these problems by adding spot industrial humidification near the printing machine. Industrial humidification will reduce static electricity and help to keep constant product quality. The IKEUCHI industrial humidification system sprays dry fog, that doesn’t wet the equipment.


AKIMist®E dry fog sprayer. Due to the miniature diameter of the water droplets, dry fog doesn’t wet objects and the environment. When using demineralized water and clean compressed air, the need for maintenance is eliminated. The system is easy to install and has low operating costs.  


  • Fewer press breaks and a lower percentage of paper jams caused by double feeding.
  • Reduction of paper curl.
  • Higher work speed.
  • Higher product quality.
  • Cost savings (lower error rate and decrease of downtime).
  • Year-round constant humidity (set according to your preferences).
  • The option of spot humidification requires less energy.
