Static Control Solutions For Plastic Applications

In the plastics industry static charge can cause machines to jam, parts to stick to each other, and contamination which can increase product defects that waste time and money. Materials are becoming increasingly thin and sensitive, while processes are becoming faster and more lean. Ensuring your process runs smoothly is becoming critical to guarantee your customers get a quality product. Simco-Ion solves problems for a variety of plastics applications by offering custom static control, contamination control, and web cleaning solutions. Our products are ideal for many plastic applications including:

  • Laminating
  • Blow molding
  • Film extrusion
  • Thermoforming
  • In-mold labeling
  • Injection molding 
  • Chill roller pinning 
  • Trim collection coating

IQ Power Control Station

The core of the IQ Power System is the Control Station which includes a full color touch screen designed with an intuitive interface and user-friendly features that help you monitor and control the system globally or by device.

The Control Station provides information you can rely on; including system name, status, output and current. Also shown are upstream and sensor bar data for operator safety and verification.

The Control Station offers upstream and downstream charge readings when used in conjunction with the IQ Easy Sensor Bar. Using the Sensor Bar allows the output of the power supply to be adjusted dynamically resulting in optimized static neutralization. 

The Control Station incorporates several relay output choices to suit desired alarm methods for streamlined operation and maximum productivity. Global relays as well as individual IQ Power BPS relays are accessible for both warning and fault user selectable alarm thresholds.

Data logging is sometimes necessary in critical areas. Therefore, the IQ Power Control Station incorporates user selectable time interval data points in addition to event logging capabilities. Couple that with simplified data retrieving methods via USB or FTP for ultimate convenience. The Control Station provides operating details of each device in the system upon clicking on the individual icons from the Global View screen. Device details include system name, status, output and current. Also shown are upstream and downstream charge indicators for operator safety and verification. An optional web speed encoder can provide automatic web speed readings if desired.
