6 solutions for maintaining cleanliness and safety whilst also controlling Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)

Ever feel like you’re fighting a losing battle? You are in charge of improving and maintaining the ESD Control measures at your facility, but every time you try to make a change you feel like something is battling with your objective. Often, we find… Continue Reading “6 solutions for maintaining cleanliness and safety whilst also controlling Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)”

IONISATION IN ELECTRONICS PRODUCTION

A complete static control programme must deal with: isolated conductors insulative materials that cannot be grounded. When each of these are process essential, and cannot be replaced with an ESD safe alternatives, we must use Ionisation to protect from ESD damage. That might sound… Continue Reading “IONISATION IN ELECTRONICS PRODUCTION”

3 Steps In Fighting ESD

So far we’ve learned what ESD is and why ESD Protected Areas are so important. In today’s post, we want to equip you with 3 simple tactics to protect your ESD sensitive items. It’s easier than you think! ESD Protection is a Requirement!As electronic technology advances, electronic… Continue Reading “3 Steps In Fighting ESD”

Requirements for an ESD Work Surface

The purpose of an ESD protective working surface is to aid in the prevention of damage to ESD Sensitive Devices (ESDS) and assemblies from electrostatic discharge. An ESD protective working surface provides protection in the following two ways: Providing a low charging working surface… Continue Reading “Requirements for an ESD Work Surface”

What is an ESD Protected Area (EPA) and why is it essential in controlling ESD?

An Example of an ESD Protected Area (EPA)

In a previous post, we talked about ESD: what it is, what types of ESD damage there are and what costly effects ESD can have. Missed it? Catch-up here. In this post we will start to uncover how we control ESD, but where to start?… Continue Reading “What is an ESD Protected Area (EPA) and why is it essential in controlling ESD?”

Live WEBINAR: Body Voltage Measuring

WHEN: Thursday October 29, 2020 at 10am GMTREGISTER: Here In the last webinar we covered the importance of measuring resistance within the EPA, however for a Person/Footwear/flooring system this is not the only test that needs to be carried out. In this webinar we will… Continue Reading “Live WEBINAR: Body Voltage Measuring”
