Static Control for Slitting and Rewinding
Static charges can cause trim fragments and fibers to stick to films after slitting. The dirty, charged roll may cause production slowdowns, poor product quality and even rejected product.
A Simco-Ion Phoenix™ Ionizing Blower installed above and just after the slitting operation directs the ionization at the film and trim fragments.Static charges are eliminated during the slitting process, preventing fragments from being reattracted to the film. As a result, neutralized materials stay clean.
Pneumatic Conveying Static Removal
Highly charged slitter trim materials cling to the sides of the cyclone of the trim collection system, forming a clog across the exit duct. The trim collection system must be shut down - affecting all operations producing slitter trim. The Conveyostat system controls static on trim materials prior to entering the cyclone. Once neutralized, the materials flow smoothly throughout the system, eliminating system shutdown.
Dry Bonding Web/Sheet Lamination
Chargemaster power supplies and charging bars work to bond the substrate and the laminating material. The materials pass between the two bars without contact and are electrostatically bonded. This ensures that materials remain aligned during the lamination process.
Electrostatic Charge for Roll-to-Roll Changeover
Chargemaster applies a temporary charge to the leading edge of the roll of film at rewind. The edge then adheres to the core without the use of tape or messy adhesives. Finished product quality is enhanced by elimination of creases in the roll of film caused by tape and glue on the core.
Binders and Video Cassette Covers
3-ring binders, cassette cases, and other types of binders are assembled in layers. The seal process requires that the layers stay in the position in which they were placed. Pinner bars strategically located over the assembly table allow pinning the materials together before the seal process to eliminate rejects. The various layers of the structure are held in their correct position.
Static Control for High Speed Web
The PerforMAX IQ Static Control System is capable of neutralizing charged materials traveling up to 3,000 feet per minute, and faster depending on conditions.
In addition, the PerforMAX works well in all types of applications and neutralizes even very high levels of static charges. It is particularly well suited for difficult applications, where a traditional static control bars may not be enough.
Static Control for Fiber Optics
Strands of optical fibers can produce high static charges when wound onto a spool. This prevents the strands from laying properly on the spool, slowing down production. The charges can also damage the cable.
Use a Blue Bar to neutralize the charges from the fibers.
Static Control on Rollers
Particulate is attracted to a charged rubber roller causing impressions from the contaminant to be transferred to the paper. A Blue Bar installed facing the roller takes the charge off the roller.
Static Control on Accumulators
Static charges can build up on a web in an accumulator. When charges become too high, the web may attract to itself or other surfaces, and the accumulator may not extend to its full range.
Place R50 Static Bars, which are very high output bars, in the open areas between the folds of the web (see diagram). If the opposing sides of the web are within 2 or 3 of each other, mount the bars with the pins pointing up. This eliminates the need for two static bars within one fold.
Static Control on a Wicketer
Static charges can make bags stack poorly, decreasing production yields and increasing rejects. Because of its extended range and high ionization output, the Blue Bar can neutralize static on materials several inches away, eliminating the static charges responsible for stacking problems on the wicketer.
Electrostatic Charging for Bagmaking
The speed of the conveyor can cause the lead edge of the bag to lift up and shift. Electrostatically pinning trailing to leading edges prevents lifting and keeps bags proceeding smoothly along the conveyor line. Chargemaster can also be used to remove air from bags prior to packaging. The reduced thickness allows the use of smaller, more cost-efficient packaging.
Static Control on an Open Web
Static charges on an open web can attract dirt, shock operators and cause product defects. A Blue Bar will neutralize the static charges, eliminating production problems. The Blue Bar neutralizes static charges on webs at speeds to 2500 fpm at 1 and can be mounted up to 6 from the web at slower speeds.
Static Control on RFID Tags
RFID tags contain an antennae to enable them to receive and respond to radio-frequency queries from an RFID transceiver. The microchip contained in an RFID tag can be damaged by static electricity.
Static charges are commonly found in tag and label printing/production operations anywhere along the path from the feed-roll to the rewind.
Static Control on an Extrusion Line
Simco-Ion's Ionizing Blowers installed above the film directs the ionization at the film. Static charges are eliminated during the rewinding process, preventing ambient contaminants from being reattracted to the film.
As a result, neutralized materials stay clean and dust free, dramatically reducing slowdowns and rejected rolls, and improving overall product quality. The elimination of the static charge also eliminates “operator shock” to your employees.
