Charging

To deliberately use the adhesion generated through electrostatic charge as “temporary glue”, ion clouds are produced through highvoltage and emitted on electrode tips, like in the neutralisation. We have categorised the products for the different applications according to the following criteria:

  1. Requested adhesive area dimension
  2. Strength of charge to cater for distance and material type

Depending on the application and case, either 1 generating ioniser (e.g. edge trim adhesion) or 2 generator bars with opposite polarity on each material side are used (e.g. several layers to be blocked). Our domain experts are happy to analyse your problem and needs on-site and give you best advice on potential solutions.

For the deliberate charging of material, primarily the surface area or correspondingly width on moving material is pivotal to determine the required product type.

The area or correspondingly the width is a result of the work process before or after which a metarial needs to be electrostatically charged (refer to examples and also applications in practical use)

The charge generating systems can be categorised as follows:

  • Generator BARS (app. 100 mm to 4’000 mm)
  • Small Area PINNER (up to 100 mm)
  • Smallest Area PINNER (app. 20 – 40 mm)
  • MULTI-TIP generators (3 stripes on app. 20 – 40 mm)
  • SPOT TYPE generators (thin stripe)

Product types cf. charge area/width

We have summed the last four types under one category in the IONTIS offering. Furthermore, all charging ionisers need an HV Generator forming another distinct product category (also refer to charging distance in “Strength of Charge”.
