Any industry that handles non-conductive materials experiences sometime process problems from the influence of static electricity. The following are the industrial processes that are usually exposed to static electricity.
The manufacture and handling of plastic products often generates major disturbances due to static electricity. Plastic film, plastic bags, jet moulding and moulding of car parts, packaging etc can produce this negative side effect.
Large static problems are generated in textile machines in carding, warping, flushing, textile printing and quality control.
In the manufacture of tissue and non-woven material, major disturbances of operation are generated due to static electricity. The vision system and other quality testing equipment can also be disallowed or show incorrect results.
Some fuel types can be charged during filling and emptying and may cause explosions or fires. Nostatic has, however, no systems that take care of the challenges that safe fuel management represents.
Printing on paper, plastic film and products requires clean surfaces so that the print quality is desired. A statically charged surface attracts particles that makes good print quality impossible. The material can also be uploaded when run through the machine and thus cause mechanical problems.
Varnishing requires a surface free of static charge so that the coating is not uneven or patterned with negative end result. But there are actually varnishing methods that in a controlled environment in fact use static charge to get a more efficient process.
Electronic components are extremely sensitive to the impact or discharge of static charges. Often special environments must be set up to eliminate risks and to control personnel charging.
Machine packaging is handled to transport, demonstrate, decorate and protect other products. Packaging machines work with plastic film and similar materials, such as laminates, which are flushed through the machine and generate static problems.
Pharmaceutical manufacturing consists of very expensive products that are filled in packaging with the exact weight. The packaging process is hampered by statically uploaded packaging, for example, with inhaler filling.
Food handling in many cases consists of filling dry products on a tube. When charged, the dry product may be pulled statically into the plastic film and sticks to the welded joint, with leaking packaging as a result.
In the manufacture of plastic automotive parts, it is vital to neutralize the components before coating to achieve the desired finish.
