Electrostatic discharge of car seats

Car seats are covered with the seat cover.

The car seats arrive to the assembly station wrapped in a foil and are unpacked there. During the assembly of the car seats, the foam is covered with integrated and insulated steel linkage, with the textile cover. This work is done manually.

Can electrostatic discharges occur on personnel during assembly?

When the foam is unpacked from a protective film, handled and moved on an assembly table, etc., the foam seat becomes electrostatically charged and affects the charge on an insulated metal linkage. If the linkage is touched accidentally, sparks are discharged onto the employees, even through protective gloves.

Our solution

Electrostatic flashovers on personnel are significantly reduced by using the highly effective flexION R60L discharge bars.
