05: What is Anti-Static Packaging?
Explaining the what and why of ESD safe packaging
Static charge is prevalent in our everyday environment and can cause easily cause damage or alter the effective operation of electronic equipment.
In fact, static electricity has posed problems for industry for many years, long before the advancement in technology over the last few decades.
It has even been recorded that static control procedures and devices were in operation as early as the 1400s, to prevent and minimise electrostatic discharge igniting gunpowder and other explosives.
One of the main problems with ESD is that it’s practically invisible. Within industry today, ESD can damage many electrical parts and components, including microchips, electronic assemblies and circuit boards, often beyond repair.
Manufacturers of such devices and components must therefore control static discharges in not only their processes, but also during transit to the end users. Failure to do so can see the equipment or components supplied either not working, or having a significantly reduced operating lifespan.
Failure to address improper packaging of ESD sensitive components, products and equipment costs both manufacturers and users millions of pounds each year.
It can impact on productivity and reliability in practically all aspects of today’s electronics industry, and this is because most suppliers and end users do not understand how ESD sensitive items fail. To start addressing these issues, speak with the experts at GWP Conductive.
