Trapping of Resin Film During Roll Transfer
A resin film is charged with static electricity by the friction with and separation from the rollers.
The charged film sometimes gets trapped by the roller due to the force that makes the film partially stick together or cling to the roller.
Conventional static eliminator
- The effect is insufficient and varies depending on the diameter of the roll.
It cannot improve the quality.
Countermeasures with static eliminators (ionizers)
An ionizer can avoid complaints about defective products and improve quality.
Improvements and Effects
Words from the worksite
Reduced cost for preventing the release of defective products
Disposal cost of $30,000/year + Recall cost (transportation and on-site service travel costs) of $10,000/year = $40,000/year
Films with higher added values will be produced in the future. If no measures are taken, there will be a risk of further damage.
