Diagnose Static Problems With A Handheld Static Meter

Handheld fieldmeters are our workhorse tools for solving static problems.

Static Control for Corona Treaters

Corona treaters can deposit very large amounts of static on web.

Static Control for Labels

Labels are prone to static failures because cut sheets are more sensitive to static than continuous webs.

Static Control for Flexographic Printing

Control static to prevent sparks where the printed web exits the central impression drum.

Static Control for Adhesive Lamination

Prevent static from becoming laminated inside a multi-layer web using best-practice static control.

Static Beat | Assess Static Risks Using Electric Fields

Handheld fieldmeters are excellent tools for diagnosing static problems. Using a fieldmeter, how do we know if we have a problem? What do our static reading really mean?

Static Beat | Static Control for Nip Rollers

A nip roller can deposit a lot of static. Put a static dissipator exiting a nip facing the web surface that touched the polymer nip roller.

Static Beat | Use Static Splices with Metallized Films

Static splices suppress sparks from metallized webs and films with conducting traces when splices pass over metal rollers.

Static Beat | Static Control for Films with Conductive Layers

Sparks from metallized webs and films with conducting traces are difficult to suppress because static control devices are ineffective.

Static Beat | Control Static on a Winding Roll

Suppress static sparks on winding rolls to protect operators from shocks, release layers from damage, and labels from blocking.
