For electronics manufacturers, controlling ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) is a serious matter. Many new electronics for industry and consumers use electronic components that are particularly ESD sensitive. An ESD floor provides an essential precaution to ensure the quality of the assembly process and to ensure the reliability of the finished products.
ESD-sensitive components can be found in smartphones, notebooks, scanners, printing devices, smoke detectors, medical equipment and many other applications. Semiconductors within the microelectronics are highly sensitive to shocks and can cause irreparable damage in low operating voltages. This has major financial consequences:
“The average product losses of electronics manufacturers due to electrostatic discharge are 16-22%.” – Stephen Halperin, Guidelines for Static Control Management
Electronic components are frequently damaged during the manufacture and assembly of electronics, without any knowledge of this. Often because the damage cannot be detected by the standard quality tests. As a result, the damage will not occur until the component is already installed in the relevant equipment or when the device is put into service. By following the ESD regulations required (read: Placing an ESD floor), you will avoid unnecessary warranty claims.
ESD floors are specially designed to prevent electrostatic charge build-up, making them an indispensable part of electronics production and assembly lines. Electrostatic charge created by friction is discharged by the conductive properties of the floor in a controlled manner and thus neutralized. What is not there can also not cause damage.
With HIM ESD floors, you can effectively deal with the invisible danger and leave nothing to chance. In addition to antistatic, our ESD cast floor is also hygienic and easy to maintain. And: give your business floor a clean look right away.
The precise filling of the ESD floor depends partly on the mechanical load on the floor and the intensity at which the production and/or assembly area is used. We will be happy to map out the best solution for you.
