    The shocking facts about static electricity

    Wednesday 15th July 2015

    Static electricity adversely affects most manufacturing processes, causing major production issues. These include problems such as sticking, jamming, feeding, exfoliation and separation. Heat generation due to static electricity can cause fires and product quality is decreased through dust adherence, contamination and other types of damage. It is also extremely unpleasant for machine operators and maintenance teams when static electricity is discharged.
