How can I use static charge to improve a process?
An electrostatic charge can be very useful! Materials can be charged deliberately to make them bond temporarily. Static charge can be an invisible helping hand in your production process. This method is already used in many processes in various industries. Some examples are:
- Block a stack of paper or magazines to prevent shifting during transport or packaging.
- Fix an address label to a brochure before the brochure is packed in a wrapping film.
- Keep the last bag of a roll (e.g. Garbage bags) fixed to the roll to make packaging in a carton easier
- Bond a small section of a film during winding on a roll to prevent the roll from telescoping.
