  • Do Static Brushes Need to Touch to be Effective?

    Monday, March 05, 2018 Kelly Robinson

    Static brushes, strands of tinsel, and ionizing cords are passive dissipators that can neutralize static charges on webs, polymer covered conveyance rollers, and unwinding rolls. These passive dissipators need only to be grounded to operate. Active dissipators like static bars have power supplies. Passive dissipators do not but are often installed so that they touch webs or unwinding rolls. Is this necessary? Read on to find out.

  • Steady growth and expansion of the flexible packaging industry is going to rely on three growth factors: innovation and technology in products, growth in new and existing markets, and the ability to quickly adapt to changing consumer behavior and preferences.

To suppress sparks on a winding roll and to have low static when the roll is unwound in the next operation, the static control system must accomplish two goals. Read on to find out more from Kelly Robinson at Electrostatic Answers.

  • In this second blog from Alison Keane, we’ll talk more about how expansion in new and existing markets, with emerging markets and a growing global middle class acting as key factors, will spur new growth for the converting and flexible packaging industry.
