Adhesion of Foreign Particles and Electric Shock of Workers During Material Winding

In the calendar process for tire steel cord, the material is wound together with a polyethylene sheet, which generates significant electrostatic charges.
This causes adhesion of foreign particles and delivers electric shocks to workers. Using a static eliminator can eliminate these issues.

Conventional countermeasures

Static elimination brush

  • The elimination ability is insufficient and it is impossible to support faster lines.
  • Lint is generated by friction.

Countermeasures with static eliminators (ionizers)

Non-contact, high-speed static electricity elimination can support faster lines without lint generation.

Words from the worksite

Support of faster lines

The present method cannot support the line speed of 120 m/min or faster.
Consequently, it was crucial to find a solution.
