Static Problems in the Carding Process

In the carding process, electrostatic discharge can pose a number of challenges, starting with human safety. High-speed machines–which continue to increase in speed with the growing demands of the industry–create a highly charged environment and a potential shock risk to employees. Electrostatic discharge can also make materials unwieldy and difficult to handle, for both employees and customers.Micro-contamination is a key concern that can cause costly damage to your products, your customers’ products, and your bottom line. Transforming Technologies provides custom solutions to help manage static and contamination to ensure your process runs smoothly, cost-effectively and in a way that’s amenable to your customers. Most solutions here utilize corona ionization due to the nature of the plastics environment and the speeds found in many of the spools they are not ideal for alpha solutions.
