In the chipwood industry decorated paper, impregnated with synthetic resin and hardener, is usually put on both sides of the chipwood panel. The sandwich is then transported into the press. During this process the problem occurs that the decorationpaper slides due to the sudden movement, so that only a part of the chipwood remains covered. The panel becomes waste. Simco-Ion advises to use charging bars, to be installed above and below the chipboard just before the sandwich is moved into the press. Applying opposite polarity electrostatic charge to both sides of the panel will prevent the paper to move.
A static charging system consists of a high voltage generator and an electrode or applicator and cabling. The high voltage generator supplies the high voltage needed to create a static charge. This can vary from 3 to 60 kVolt. The charging electrode or charging applicator comes in different shapes to enable an optimum result for each specific application. Size and shape differ to make optimum solutions for each situation.
CM5 is fully backwards compatible with ECM30/60 and ECM DI30/60. For basic users a quick set-up menu is provided to set-up the generator to function as an ECM30/60. The new standard function Current Control will enable you to set a constant current vs a constant voltage.
