Meech – Hall 6 Stand C34

Meech, provider of solutions for static control and web cleaning will exhibit, for the first time, the Hyperion 650QAC. The 650QAC is a high accuracy ionising bar designed for ESD sensitive applications where static charges need to be controlled at very low levels. The titanium emitter pins are driven by a Quasi AC (QAC) high voltage waveform that generates positive and negative ions from each pin. This is vital for the delivery of rapid charge decay with near-zero residual voltage on the object being neutralised, which reduces the risk electrostatic discharge (ESD).

Intended for use at operating distances between 50 and 400mm and including a built-in keypad for setting different configurations, the 650QAC is ideal for applications where ESD may damage electrical components.  This includes RFID tag manufacturing where static charges are generated during the unwinding, printing, drying and rewinding processes and stored in the metallic antennae. The population of the chip onto the antennae can then result in the stored static charges discharging to the chip, causing immediate and ‘catastrophic failure’ or ‘latent defects’. 650QAC bars installed on the unwind, after nip drives and any point where friction or heat is applied throughout the process will control the static charges on the substrate, ensuring voltage levels are within acceptable levels.
