Products such as electric vehicles, communication devices, household goods and toys, may have sensitive electronics requiring protection throughout the supply chain. These electronic components can be damaged by static electric discharge from equipment, induced electrostatic fields or humans. These discharges can also cause data failures or spark fires or explosions in flammable environments.
ORBIS has helped address these potential issues by ensuring the company has properly trained and qualified personnel to speak to these product concerns. This is part of a continuing effort to provide advanced ESD protective solutions for customers. The certification has increased ORBIS’ overall competency level of ESD-safe products and improves buyer-seller communication.
In addition to certified personnel, ORBIS has a variety of ESD-safe packaging products that protect the most sensitive components from static charge that can occur during electronic device manufacturing, assembly and shipping. ESD-safe protective packaging and dunnage includes unique materials with conductive properties along with the complete packaging design to provide a system that is ideal for transporting electronic components.
This certification is based on Bahr’s knowledge, experience and competency with helping customers protect sAnnensitive electronic parts from electrostatic discharge (ESD). “Earning this certification has leveraged ORBIS as a leader within the electrostatic control space,” said TJ Bahr, project engineer, ORBIS. “This advanced knowledge that comes with certification, combined with our line of ESD-safe products, further proves ORBIS is continuing to help our customers move their electronic parts faster, better, safer and more cost-effectively.”
ESD-safe material is available in the ORBIS StakPak®System, the Hand-Held Folding Container System, LEWISBins® and ORBIShield® products.
