Eliminate Static from Wrapping Machines
A static charge is a very efficient way to temporarily bond two materials. When this process is controlled, it can be extremely beneficial. When it is an unwanted by-product, it can cause many different problems.
If a static charge is present during wrapping then there is a range of problems that can arise. The film can bond to itself or the machine, refuse to leave the reel or even wrap around rollers. The solutions shown apply equally to over-wrappers, flow-wrappers and shrink-wrappers.
Eliminate Static from Wrapping Machines - Select a problem:
If the film sticks to the product, this can be prevented by installing a short range 3014, 3024F or 1250-S anti-static bar as close as possible to the last place where the film is in free air before wrapping the product.
If the unwinding film will not leave the reel, or wraps around rollers, it should be neutralised with a 3024L Static Eliminator located just after the unwind.
If large reels are used, then a NEOS 12L Intelligent Static Eliminator provides excellent medium range neutralisation at distances up to 600 mm.
