Stacked resin containers are separated from each other before they are individually placed on the transfer line. The containers are charged with static electricity when separated.
The charged containers attract dust or other minute particles. Even if the dust is blown off with an air blow, the charged dust adheres to the container again.
- Labor costs are high.
- Some dust is overlooked or missed depending on the worker.
Countermeasures with static eliminators (ionizers)
The costs for labor, disposal and addressing complaints can be reduced.
Labor cost: $20/hour x 8 times/day x 250 days = $40,000/year
Cost for disposing return due to complaints: $200 x Once a month x 12 months = $2,400/year
In addition, there are other resulting benefits of improved reliability.
