Recently Dave Genest, Polyonics’ Marketing and Communications Manager, published an article at www.US-Tech.com discussing causes and solutions to ESD from labels and tapes in the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) manufacturing world.
In today’s PCB manufacturing scene barcodes, packaging tapes, and labels are vital to efficient production. However, these materials traditionally cause Electro Static Discharge which results in product failure. It is estimated that “product losses due to ESD can be up to 7% of manufacturing costs”.
By using ESD safe tapes and labels, PCB manufacturers and assemblers can reduce failures significantly. Polyonics offers a full line of labels and tapes that can be safely adhered and removed from a product throughout the entire manufacturing process.
