Static Generation involves the controlled creation of a static charge on a non-conductive material, enabling a temporary adhesion between surfaces possessing charges of opposite polarity. This process safely generates a high direct current (DC) voltage, reaching up to 50,000 volts. This voltage is then directed to a static generator bar, where it connects to an array of appropriately designed emitter pins, inducing the formation of a "corona" discharge.
The DC voltage may be either positive or negative. The emitter pins are strategically positioned in close proximity to either a grounded surface or, for enhanced effectiveness, a generator bar equipped with emitter pins of opposite polarity. The material or materials intended to be bonded are introduced into the vicinity of the "corona," resulting in their bonding to the grounded surface or the other material through the attractive forces created by the opposing charges.
