Remove Dust & Debris with Sonic Ion-Air Static Control Air Knife Systems
A global automotive parts manufacturer headquartered in Japan needed a solution to ensure that inventoried parts and components were dust and debris-free when being transported on pallets from a non-clean room storage area to a clean room production area for their largest U.S. manufacturing facility. This facility employs over 4,000 people and produces starters, alternators, instrument clusters, various automotive electronic products, and inverters for hybrid vehicles.
Sonic's Blower powered Ion-Air Static Control Air Knife System is able to remove all dust and small particles as the tugger operator moves the pallets through the air tunnel zones without dislodging any of the items from the pallet and prevents contamination as it moves to a clean room area of the production floor.
Sonic competed against Japanese suppliers and won the project. With the Performance Guarantee offered by Sonic’s design and application team and technical support provided by the local manufacturer’s rep, the customer was very pleased with the results.
After the successful installation of the first system, the customer added three more air tunnels and installed Sonic Ion-Air Static Control Air Knife Systems to ensure 100% removal of dust particles and small debris from pallets.
