For more than 2 decades now, Restronics Northland has been supplying ESD expertise to its customers. Our expert staff conducts audits in accordance with the EOS/ESD 20.20 standard. We hold the tools and technology required to conduct an audit and aid end users in fixing sections that do not meet specifications. There are different client demands for semiconductor producers compared from those manufacturers of low tech technology. Our expert team can give you advice on the best strategies to meet the appropriate regulations.
Our crew has access to and is experienced with a large variety of ESD supplies and accessories, from ESD matting material to grounding and testing technology. In many companies, continuous ESD tracking is considered to be more efficient than having operators physically test them at a central test station on a regular basis. In the face of increasing sensitivity of our customers’ products to ESD issues, inspecting wrist bands once or twice a day is no longer sufficient to ensure maximum confidence in grounding. Furthermore, continuous monitoring guarantees that benches and ESD mats are appropriately grounded, eliminating the need for a facility person to test each work bench on a a monthly basis. ESD monitoring removes the need to retain paper or digital records of all personnel.
The extensive selection of ESD supplies includes personnel grounding material, non-static workbench supplies and tools, ESD packaging items such as metalized bags and moisture barrier bags and ESD handling boxes for transporting ESD sensitive materials for both in-plant use and shipping products. ESD floors (either using ESD wax or permanent ESD tiles) are commonly used as the foundation of any ESD program.
Furthermore, non-static and ESD generation are becoming increasingly important in pharmaceutical manufacturing, biomedical manufacturing, and server farms. In all of these markets, ESD protection is becoming increasingly important.
With the help of Restronics, ESD control methods can be installed. We can assist you with one or two workbenches, or a whole facility.
