Remoistening in digital printing

Remoistening / conditioning

In digital printing, dryer systems are used to dry water-based inkjet inks or to fix toner-based systems. Paper consists of organic fibers whose properties change negatively when exposed to heat.

The following problems can occur:

  • Raised edges (curling) and plates of the paper

  • Wave formation in printed products

  • Reduced register and register accuracy in further processing

  • Rough and unclean fold breaks

  • Reduced processing speed due to high static charges

**Nature needs moisture - so do your printed products !

With the WEKO-DigiCon, the paper can be given back exactly the missing moisture that was previously removed by high drying (performance) temparature.
Using a non-contact rotor spray process, fine micro-droplets are evenly distributed on the paper surface. The paper regains its natural properties. The above-mentioned (impairments) Disadvantages are significantly improved - processing speed and the quality of the end products can be sustainably increased.
