Static Eliminators for Converting
TAKK static eliminators provide an even distribution of ionized air over slitting, sheeting, unwinding, rewinding, laminating and coating operations. This eliminates the static electricity which causes the frequent incidence of personnel shock and also static problems which cause jamming, clinging, and sticking of materials being processed. This is a common occurrence with the types of papers and films used in converting and packaging.
High static charges can cause the bags to cling together or repel on the collated stack. As a result they stack poorly, decreasing production yields and increasing rejects. Installing static eliminators as the bag enters the wicket area, while on the wickets and at the stack will ensure that the single bags and the collated stack are fully neutralized and stack properly.
During the unwind operation, as the web is pulled from the roll and the material separates, a static charge is created. The static charge increases as the web moves across rollers and when the material is slit. As the material starts to rewind the static can cause the layers to repel each other and decrease roll quality.
Installing a static eliminator prior to the rewind will neutralize the charge and prevent contamination and poor quality rolls.
In high speed applications, such as sheeting, static is generated by the fast speed, the friction and the separation. As the sheeting process takes place, the individual sheets are attracted to the machine and repel each other when stacking.
Installing a static eliminator above and right after the sheeting operation will neutralize the static and lead to good stacking, a reduction in jamming and down time and increase productivity.
During the winding operation, as the web is pulled from the roll and the material separates, a static charge is created. This static attracts airborne dust and contaminates causing rejects, waste and operator shocks.
On both unwind and rewind applications, installing a static eliminator on top of the roll will neutralize the charge and prevent contamination and shock.
Applying Protective Sheets to Metal/Plastic
Producers/processors of steel, glass, or plastic sheets need to apply a protective liner or interleaf sheets onto finished goods prior to packaging sheets for shipping. Usually applied to protect the finished side of the materials. Ideally the producer wants to use a fast, non-marring solution to apply the liners. Adhesives, glues and strapping are costly, time consuming and can interfere with uniform stacks.
Non-contact electrostatic charging of liner/interleaf material avoids drawbacks of other application methods. It is effective, fast and reliable. And it does not require purchase of consumables like adhesive, glues and strapping.
