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 a
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.
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.
Interleaving a Protection Layer
Chargemaster pins the protective sheet to the base material, holding it in position through the shearing and stacking processes. Chargemaster equipment supplies the electrostatic force to bond a protective layer of paper or film to cut sheets of metal, glass, wood, and other products. Chargemaster is also used to hold wood laminates to core board prior to thermal bonding of desk tops and panels.
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.
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 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 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 R51 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. Further than 3, t
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 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
Electrostatic Charging for Catalog Stacking
Simco-Ion Chargemaster BP-30 power supply and Pinner Superbar charge catalogs just prior to stacking. As a result, the catalogs become flat and snap onto the stack, electrostatically adhering to each other. The catalogs are held together in a tight, registered stack as they proceed through the overwrapping and shrinkwrapping processes. Jams and edge damage are eliminated and throughput rate is increased. Use of strapping equipment is reduced or eliminated.
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 Corrugated Materials
Slitter Dust, chaff from sheeting, and other environmental contaminants on the surface of the corrugated material make it impossible to achieve production goals and difficult to maintain quality print standards.
Neutro-vac Web and Sheet Cleaning Systems effectively remove slitter dust, chaff from sheeting and other contaminants from the surface of corrugated material.
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. The charges are generated by the contact and separations of the web material from the unwind roll, and as the material travels over the various rollers and pro
Card Insertion on Perfect Bound Lines
On perfect bound lines, card inserts often overshoot the target area because of the line speed. Also, it may not exactly match the line speed hence the card may slide backwards which results in bad positioning on the package. Apply a static charge with the charging bar to the card as it hits the page to effectively hold the card in place.
Static Control on Flexoprint Machines
Slitter dust and other environmental contaminants on the surface of the film material make it impossible to achieve production goals and difficult to maintain quality print standards. Neutro-vac Web Cleaning Systems effectively remove slitter dust and other contaminants from the surface of films prior to printing.
Static Control on Labeling Machine
Static electricity on labels may cause poor label feeding on high speed labeling machines. Static electricity on plastic bottles to be labeled will result in poor label placement and bad positioning. These problems will cause slower production speeds and higher rejection rates. Static Control products positioned as shown above will eliminate the static charges and allow optimum process productivity.
Static Control on Shrink Wrapping Machine
Packaging film is unwound and formed into a tubular configuration, as the product flows on a belt into the tube of film. The film is overlapped either on top or bottom side. The so-called overlap is required to fix the two ends of the film tight together. Heat welding or electrostatic charge is applied, to prevent the film from tearing in the shrink tunnel. The electrostatic electrode uses less energy than the heat welding system. It also requires no maintenance and the final product is easier f
Static Control on Sleeving Machine
Printed shrink sleeves for decorating plastic or glass bottles, offer an effective medium for advertising purposes and additional protection. The flat film is unwound and runs through a bufferstack and is then pulled over a mandrel to form a tube. The sleeve is cut to size by knives in the cutting unit. The sleeve is then pushed down over the container and shrunk to fit the container contour in a heat tunnel. Static electricity may cause the film to stick to the mandrel or, once cut, the sleeve
