In converting, there are several major challenges static creates, starting with human safety. Converting environments are highly charged areas and can be, potentially, hazardous to employees, posing shock risks when not properly managed. Electrostatic discharge can also make materials unwieldy and difficult to handle, for both employees and customers. Micro contamination is another huge issue, which can cause costly damage to your products, your customers’ products, and your bottom line.
NRD provides custom solutions to help manage static and contamination to ensure your process runs smoothly. Most solutions utilize corona ionization due to the nature of converting environments and the speeds found in many of the spools, which are not ideal for alpha solutions.
