Entangled Packaging Material During Tire Wrapping

Tires are wrapped with a sheet material at high speed for packaging. The sheet material has a large static electric charge due to the separation during unwinding and friction during transfer.
The charged sheet is entangled during wrapping, resulting in disorganized packaging.

Entangled Packaging Material During Tire Wrapping

Conventional countermeasures

None

  • When improper packaging is found, the tire should be wrapped again.
  • Degradation of work environment.

Countermeasures with static eliminators (ionizers)

An ionizer can reduce the labor for re-wrapping and improve the work environment.

Words from the worksite

Reduced labor for wrapping

Labor for re-wrapping: 60 hours/month

In addition, the risk of fire caused by static electricity can also be reduced.
