Static Control

All US based Desco Industries locations will be closed on Monday May 29, 2017 in observance of the Memorial Day Holiday. Customer service will be closed for the day and no orders will be processed for the day. Normal operations will resume on Tuesday May 30, 2017. www.DescoIndustries.com/ppt/Veterans.pptx

Desco manufacturers products in several factories in the USA. In addition, Desco leases 450 acres of prime agricultural property in Chino Valley where we grow coil cords for wrist strap production. An on-site facility conducts research in pest control, soil testing, and bio-sustainability. Future plans include growing ground cords, vinyl berries, and breeding alpacas for improving…

ElectroStatic charges and ElectroStatic discharges are different. All material can tribocharge (generate ElectroStatic charges). This is static electricity which is an electrical charge at rest. When an electrical charge is not at rest, but discharges (i.e. ESD), problems can occur. All matter is constructed from atoms which have negatively charged electrons circling the atom’s nucleus…

The ideal ESD Control Plan is one that improves productivity, quality, and reliability, in addition to being flexible enough to accommodate changes and improvements in the manufacturing process. ESD Control Plans must evolve to keep pace with costs, device sensitivities, and the way devices are manufactured in the future. The management of an on-going ESD…

As electronic technology advances, electronic circuitry gets progressively smaller. As the size of components is reduced, so is the microscopic spacing of insulators and circuits within them, increasing their sensitivity to ESD. Industry experts estimate that average electronics product losses due to static discharge range from 8 to 33%. Others estimate the actual cost of ESD damage…
