Static charge between two surfaces can create enormous adhesion forces. These forces can also be used in a productive way in all kinds of production applications e.g.
- Keep materials together to prevent shifting during cutting, punching, laminating or packaging
- Position a label for In mold labeling or on a magazine prior to packaging
- Keep extruded film on the cooling roller to prevent shrinking
The materials need to be bonded have to pass a charging electrode. Opposite to the charging electrode a ground reference is positioned, e.g. an idle roller. A static charge can be applied ranging from 3 kV to 120 kV depending on the material thickness, speed and adhesion force required.
