Cold-rolled coil is wrapped with a protective sheet before shipment. The protective sheet is charged with static electricity by separation during unwinding.
The charged protective sheet generates an induced charge on the surface of the cold-rolled coil, which causes a force to attract the protective sheet. As a result, the protective sheet gets trapped in the roll.
- Repeated packaging makes the work time longer.
- Workers may get an electric shock.
Countermeasures with static eliminators (ionizers)
An ionizer eliminates the necessity for repeated packaging and shortens the work time. The work environment is also improved.
Shortened time: 50 hours/month x time charge of $20/hour = $1,000/month
In addition, the work environment can also be improved.
