Simco-Ion Chargemaster systems are excellently suited for temporarily bonding materials; adhesion between the material surfaces is brought aboutby generating an electrostatic charge. As a result, production processes can often be simplified and accelerated. A system consists of a DC highvoltage generator and one or several charging electrodes. The generator generates the high voltage for the high voltage points in the electrodes. The high voltage points produce ions to charge the materials, which then adhere to each other or to other surfaces electrostatically. Highfrequency switching technology is used in the generators. This technology ensures a consistent output voltage at a preset value, until overloading. The generators are electronically current limited and protected from spark-over. Features of the modern design include the control panel, which has membrane switches and rotates through 180°.
