Static Generation creates a controlled static charge on a non - conductive material that will allow a temporary, adhesion between surfaces with charges of opposite polarity. A high DC voltage (up to 50kV) is safely produced and is carried to a static generator bar or pinning head, where it is connected to an array of suitably designed emitter pins to generate a “corona”. The DC voltage may be positive or negative. The emitter pins are positioned within close proximity of a grounded surface or, for greater effect, a generator bar/pinning head with emitter pins of the opposite polarity. The material(s) to be bonded are passed into the “corona”, resulting in bonding to the grounded surface or to the other material.
