Blow Molding

…introduction of the Blue Bar eliminated the registration problem…

Corrugated Printing

Saving the customer $79,000 per year in production losses.

Plastic Bag Production

Results show that residual static (voltage) on the bags was 86% lower with the Blue Bars than with the traditional bars

Capsule Filling

Static induced rejects, caused from under-filling, were down considerably – from 9% to less than 1%.

Injection Molding

The rejects and downtime previously caused by static were virtually eliminated.

Pre Paint

… reducing the need for plant compressed air and having operating costs 45% lower than plant air systems.

Polishing Pads

Production time for each polishing pad decreased by 64% and overall productivity increased 132%.

Fiber Optics

…total static neutralization was achieved along with the added benefit of a 9.5% increase in production speed.

Sheet Fed Printing

22% Downtime Before Static Control:
8% Downtime After Static Control

Film Extrusion

By using the Blue Bar system, the plant could operate free of shock hazards. Complaints of operator shocks were reduced to zero.

Printing

ROI: 308%
Payback Period: 4 months

Plastic Bag Production

…resulted in extra 8-10 cycles per minute or a 3 to 5% increase in production speeds. Also, the extra operator was no longer needed.

Corrugated Printing

Rejects caused by specs and printing imperfections were reduced almost 75%. Payback period 5 months.

Printing

Downtime was drastically reduced — from shutting down from three times per shift to once every few days.

Flexographic Printing

…where before they had problems running at 200 packets/min., they could now run trouble free at over 500 packets/min.
