Static Control for Injection Molding
Injection molded parts can have high static charges which attract airborne contamination, resulting in product rejects. Operators may also experience uncomfortable shocks when working next to the collection bin.
A Simco-Ion Phoenix Ionizing Blower provides ionization to quickly neutralize the molded parts. As a result, the parts do not attract airborne contaminant and remain clean and operator shocks are eliminated.
Static Control for Cleaning Thermoformed Trays
Thermoforming trays attract dirt and contamination resulting in rejects.
Simco-Ion’s Phoenix Static Control Blower installed directly above the delivery of the thermoformed trays offers improved product quality with the reduction of dust and dirt.
Static Control for Plastic Parts Cleaning
Plastic parts can have high static charges and attract dust and dirt, resulting in rejected parts.
Simco-Ion’s Phoenix Static Control Blower installed on a belt conveyor, directed at the plastic parts, will neutralize the static charges, prevent reattraction of contaminates and reduce rejects.
Electrostatic Charging on Heatshrink/Overwrap
An electrostatic bond holds sheets of paper or plastic in place until the heat sealing or welding is completed. Chargemaster applies an electrostatic charge to bond sheets together to keep them in a tight stack. This prevents the film overwrap from pushing the top sheet out creating a shingling problem. Imperfect packaging and damaged sheets are also prevented.
Electrostatic Charge on In Mold Labeling (IML)
Static charges can be used to pin a decorative decal tight against the inner mold surface during injection molding, a procedure which greatly improves finished product quality. A decal is placed by robot into the mold cavity. An electrostatic charge is applied simultaneously as label vacuum is turned off. The static charge pins the decal to the mold. The decal will not slip or change position in the mold.
Static Control for Form, Fill and Seal
Vertical form, fill and seal operations often result in rejects of the finished package due to product fines attracting to the film in the seal area. Blue Bars positioned just below the fill tube neutralize the film, resulting in a clean seal.
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.
Static Control and Air for Bottle Cleaning
Simco-Ion's ionizing air nozzles are ideal for delivering ionization into inaccessible trouble spots, such as isolated, hard-to-reach sections, dirty areas, or small spaces. Operating on compressed air, nozzles provide a highly efficient pin-point source of ionization to neutralize charges in very specific spots, often several inches away from the nozzle tip. At the same time, dust, dirt, and particulate are blown away from the targeted surface. Available in four styles, the nozzles can be arran
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.
