Using Electrostatics to Pin Multiple Sheets
‘Pinning’ or temporary bonding of multiple sheets is incredibly useful for handling, packing and sorting. Commonly used for inserts by mail houses, magazines, newspapers, publishing companies and more. Static generators provide a clean, safe, efficient and cost-effective solution for temporarily bonding two or more sheets or webs.
Using Electrostatics to Pin Multiple Sheets - Select a problem:
7160 Generator Bars can be used to adhere (pin) two or more webs together, expelling trapped air and producing a long lasting bond that allows easier processing further downline.
In most cases, using a single polarity generator bar powered by the IONFIX Compact Static Generator and a proximity earth - such as a 101/102 Static Discharger - is enough to produce the desired effect.
Where the stacks to be pinned are thicker or there are multiple webs, a single generator bar may not be powerful enough.
This can be overcome by replacing the earth with a second 7160 Generator Bar powered by an IONFIX Compact Generator of the opposite polarity, thereby doubling the power and pinning capacity.
