Static Electricity Solutions

This section provides some basic examples of solutions regarding the elimination of static electricity and the use of static electricity in processes.

Static Electricity Solutions

Static Electricity damages the material

Static electricity that creates a static charge on a material can build up along the process. Friction between idle rollers and film create a charge that can become severalk kilovolts.

Use static charge in your process

Materials can be charged deliberately to make them bond temporarily. Static charge can be an invisible helping hand in your production process. This method is already used in many processes in various industries.

I want to prevent dust attraction

Static charge on a material can build up along the process. Friction between idle rollers and film creates a charge. Each new friction accumulates charge.

Optimize the production process

Static charge can be used to optimise a process.

Determine the position of a material

Perforations in a web material can be used to determine the position of the material in the machine.

Detecting perforation in products

Perforations in products can be detected using high voltage to create a spark through the perforation. Common application is testing the injection point of injection moulded products e.g. yoghurt cups, bottles and containers.

Detecting perforations in a moving web

Perforations in moving webs can be detected with a special detection bar and a high voltage generator. Perforations will be detected but not localised.

Counting Bags

High voltage spark over can be used in a controlled way. A spark over from a special electrode to a ground reference can be detected and evaluated. Perforations in plastic webs can be detected and counted. A Perfomaster provides the hardware and software to generate a controlled spark over, detect this and evaluate the spark over to produce a pulse signal.

Prevent Air Inclusion

Static charge can be used to bond 2 materials together to prevent air entrapment. The materials that need to be bonded have to pass a charging electrode.

Perforation Detection

High voltage spark over can be used in a controlled way. A spark over from a special electrode to a ground reference can be detected and evaluated. Perforations in plastic webs and products can be detected and counted. A High voltage generator provides the hardware and software to generate a controlled spark over, detect this and evaluate the spark over to produce a pulse signal. The pulse signal is available on the output connector and can be used for detecting spark-overs and thus perforations in materials.
