Plastic, and many other insulators, can build up a static charge creating numerous inefficiencies for manufacturers. If not taken care of, static electricity can cause small particles to adhere to packaged goods, causing sealing and contamination problems during the packaging or labeling process. The best way to continue to maintain productivity is to ensure that the static (and subsequently the small particles) is removed before the packaging or labeling occurs.

A manufacturing engineer, at a large diesel engine manufacturer, called me looking for a cooling solution. They needed to speed up cooling of a hot 3” diameter cam gear that is a shrink fit onto the engine’s crankshaft. They were using four cold air guns from a competitor of ours to cool the gear and they needed a solution that would allow them to increase the cooling capacity, quickly adjust the cold air temperature and reduce the cooling cycle time.
