Challenge An electronics manufacturing company had areas on their assembly line where static would build up and randomly shock employees causing discomfort and could potentially destroy sensitive parts in the assembly process. They had tried using anti static clothing, chairs, floor coatings, mats and tape but they didn’t allow flexibility of movement and had grounding buttons on top of the mats that were trip hazards. Solution Ergo Advantage put down their copper tape every 6 feet and laid their ESD tiles down over top in all areas with static potential. The tiles are engineered to slowly discharge static buildup, volume resistivity levels is 3×10^7 Ohm.
- ESD areas were clearly marked and employees were able to work comfortably without fear of shocks.
- Tiles were cut to fit environment without any loss of integrity or ESD value.
- Employees benefited from the ergonomic improvement and felt less fatigue and strain when working long shifts on their feet in the ESD area.
