Static Control for General Manufacturing
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.
As various materials – plastic totes, foam boards, case packs – ride along conveyors, electrostatic charges are generated on the conveyor belt and the conveyed materials. The result is static discharge to operators or line sensors. Static shocks to operators can cause serious injury while discharge to line sensors can cause materials to be misdirected or belt jams.
