An electrostatic charge is created on the surface of the material as it travels through the machine with continued contact and separation events, complicated by the speed of the process. The surface charge can build to potentially hazardous levels at the print station where the use of solvent based inks creates a dangerous situation. A spark from an electrostatic discharge can ignite the solvent/oxygen mixture, causing a fire. The ATEX approved anti-static bars neutralises these static charges before and after the print station allowing for static free, safe, printing. Simco-Ion also recommends static control equipment at the rewind station, to avoid electrical shocks to operators.
The rugged Performax Easy static neutralizing system, with reinforced profile offers superior deflection performance that minimizes damage due to (accidental) bending. The Performax Easy has an integrated high voltage power supply and requires only a low voltage input of 24V DC.
Compact high efficient static neutralising for explosion hazardous environments. The Performax IQ Easy Ex has an integrated high voltage power supply and requires only a low voltage input of 24V DC. A two color high bright LED visualises bar ON (green) or bar FAULT (red).
Manager IQ Easy Introducing a new level of static control; the heart of the new IQ Easy platform is the Manager IQ Easy. It comprises of a Control unit with a 7” LCD touch screen, provides information from all the connected devices and makes it easy to change and monitor status and parameters. Up to 6 IQ devices can be directly connected to the Manager IQ Easy.
