A static charge is often the cause behind many of the issues that occur during inkjet marking on plastic (or plastic wrapped) products. Static discharge can also cause damage to sensitive equipment.
- The static charge on plastic products, or products wrapped in plastic film can distort the ink pattern or upset the electronics. Static can also discharge which may damage the print head or electronics.
- This can be prevented by installing a 1250-S Bar in the position shown above. If there is a variation in product height of more than 100mm and the 1250-S Bar cannot be similarly adjusted in height, then a longer-range solution is required.
- The NEOS 12L will provide excellent medium range neutralisation at distances up to 600mm.
If for some reason a Bar cannot be used (mounting issues or location) then a 2010 Blower will deliver excellent results.
Static is typically generated by friction, rapid heat change, contact and Separation or Induction. Many of these actions occur during packaging and labelling processes and the result is generally harmless. Static, however can cause materials to misbehave and is a leading cause of print issues as well as presenting a real risk of shocks to operators. Fraser Anti-Static have over 20 years experience in this field. We recognise that many static issues are unique and offer an obligation free consultation for all prospective customers to ensure that the solution we provide will deliver.
