Static issues in packaging can be costly and wasteful as static can prevent packages from filling correctly, forcing product to misbehave. Static can also create sealing issues and numerous problems with label printers and applicators, shrink wrappers, containers and webs.
Fraser’s range of static generation equipment can also be incorporated into packaging processes to replace the need for conventional adhesives wherever temporary adhesion is required.
The technical experts at Fraser have developed static control and generation solutions to prevent packaging applications from becoming adversely affected by static.
The thermo-vacuum forming process is static generative with the result that a stack of trays can be highly charged. Sometimes there can be a problem de-nesting the trays or, more usually, the static problems are associated with the filling of the trays with product.Find out more
If the synthetic label is statically charged, it has the ability to adhere to the inside of the tool so that it can be incorporated into the moulding. Low volume applications can be addressed by hand, whereas there are different ways of charging the label on automatic systems.Find out more
Non-stop winding is frequently used on printing and converting applications where the machine cannot be stopped to swap a rewind reel when it is full. Static Generation provides temporary adhesion to begin the next reel. It replaces manual and automatic taping machines. One customer was using €100K of double-sided sticky tape each year throughout its factories.Find out more
Electrostatics can be used to squeeze the air out of multi-layer products, such as rubbish or refuse bags, so that the end-product is as compact and tightly wound as possible.Find out more
There are many applications where a loose item such as a label, an advertising insert, operating instructions, etc, is added to a moving product. Using electrostatics is a simple, clean and controllable way to prevent these loose items from sliding off.Find out more
We understand the electrostatic challenges that new materials, faster speeds, complex machinery and advances in industrial processes can present. This resource provides easy access to product brochures, information on static electricity and how it can be measured, removed or generated in specific applications.
