Plastic Film Converting – Problem and Solution

The Problem:
A plastic film converter was experiencing electrostatic problems in the winding process, which was negatively impacting effective operation of the converting machinery. Typical static eliminators were not effective or lacked the suitable ionization range to solve this converter’s static problem.

The Solution:
The IonStorm XR2 Static Elimination System provides high-performance ionization output and extended ionization range. As the web winds or unwinds and increases or decreases in diameter, the IonStorm XR2 continuously and effectively neutralizes the static charge of the web.
