Your Problem

In this section you find a description where typically in work processes electrostatic charge is occurring and when you should expect problems.
You cannot see electrostatic charge, but most probably you have already witnessed their impact and potential damage erlebt. We also explain which counter-measures you can take or where and how you can deliberately apply and use static charge. However, these webpages do cannot replace a detailed analysis of your situation on-site through our domain experts.

Tip: Even if you have not yet encountered any problems so far, you should keep electrostatics in mind when:

  • Changing material/supplier
  • Exchanging machine parts e.g. rollers with different coating
  • Changing of environmental conditions especially air moisture

GENERAL WORK TASKS ILLUSTRATIONS
Separation of Surfaces
  • Moving web over roller and pulleys
  • Winding-up and rewinding of material like sheet/foil/film/fabrics/cloth/filament/yarn etc.
  • Separation and handling of sheet stacks

Friction of Surfaces
  • Sheet are rubbing each other e.g. stacks
  • Sheet are grinding on surfaces (z.B. feed tables, conveyor etc.) and ducts
  • Transport of solids through tubes and channels
  • Transport of parts e.g. vibrator bowls, conveyor belts etc.
Cutting of Surfaces
  • Slitting of sheet and rolls/web
  • Cross-cutting of sheet/film
  • Die-cutting of parts
  • Milling and trimming of parts

Drastic Temperature Change
  • Cooling-down of parts in injection-moulding
  • Thermoforming processes
  • Extrusion processes
