Investment in ESD Technology
We hope that you will be as pleased as we are with the opening of our new electro-static discharge (“ESD”) suite which ensures that sensitive electronic assemblies have maximum protection at every stage of the manufacturing process.
We are increasingly being asked by customers to integrate electronics into injection moulded assemblies and in recognition of the growth in this side of our business Inoplas have invested in a dedicated ESD controlled room. In this area we have installed ESD flooring, benches, soldering stations, gluing stations, fume extraction and general assembly areas. The suite has an ESD wrist and heel strap test on entry and all materials entering or leaving the room must be in anti-static containers. This room allows us to solder wires, cables, components and do any additional work needed to a customer’s circuit prior to moulding. The ESD sensitive part to be over-moulded is transported to the relevant moulding machine in antistatic containers. The machine’s associated assembly bench is also fitted with an antistatic bench mat and both this and the operator’s wrist strap are earth bonded.
The new equipment is a significant investment for us as we continue to extend and improve our capabilities.
