Abstract (en)

[origin: US2008265493A1] An air delivery device and printing or coating machinery using the same. In one configuration, the air delivery device is an air knife that cooperates with a printing device such as a printing press, coating machine or the like. In a particular configuration, the air knife is situated adjacent a set of cylinders in the printing device such that upon a sheet or related piece of printed substrate being put in an air flowpath created by the air knife, one or more operations can be performed on the still wet printed or coated sheet to minimize the chance of contact of the wet sheet surface with sheet delivery or related components. Examples of such operations may include turning, bending or folding the sheet, as well as drying the ink or coating placed on the sheet by the printing machinery.
