Simco-Ion anti-static bars
Simco-Ion anti-static bars or static eliminators generate an electrical field which causes the air molecules in the vicinity of the bar to break down into positive and negative ions. Because opposite charges attract, any charged material passing near the bar will attract ions until the charge on the material is neutralized. The materials will no longer be attracted to each other or to the machine parts. Attraction of dust, explosion or fire hazards and electrical shocks to personnel caused by static discharge are avoided.
Simco-Ion offers a very wide range of antistatic bars in shockless and non-shockless versions: Performax Easy, Performax IQ Easy, Performax IQ Easy Ex, Performax Easy Ex, ThunderION 2.0, MEB, MEJ, 1/2"SS, MaxION, P-Sh-N and the P-Sh-N-Ex.
The anti-static bars consist of a series of ionizing emitter points powered by a voltage power unit. Simco-Ion anti-static bars are also available for applications requiring long range neutralization.

Normally it is not so easy to find the right type of ioniser. There are many parameters that can influence the choice that you need to make. Next to distance and speed in the machine the proximity of metal is very important. Also the current level of the static electricity or the static charge on the material is very important before you an chose the right type of static bar. To find out how high the charge is you can use our FMX-004 fieldmeter. If you need additional answers or help to determine the right type of anti-static bar or static eliminator our local contacts, that speak your language, are available and you can find yours here!
