For over 2 decades, Restronics Northern California has been providing ESD guidance to its clients. Our expert staff conducts audits in accordance with the EOS/ESD 20.20 criteria. We have the tools and equipment required to conduct an audit and help end users address issues that do not meet standards. There are different client demands for semiconductor producers compared to those for manufacturers of low-tech hardware. Our specialists can advise you on the best methods to satisfy the necessary regulations.
Our crew has access to and is experienced with a large variety of ESD supplies and accessories, from ESD matting material to grounding and testing technology. In several organizations, constant ESD monitoring is regarded as more efficient than having workers physically test them at a central test station on a daily basis. In the face of increasing sensitivity of our customers’ products to ESD issues, inspecting wrist bands once or twice everyday is no longer sufficient to ensure great confidence in grounding. Furthermore, continuous monitoring assures that benches and ESD mats are properly grounded, eliminating the need for a facility employee to inspect every work bench on a monthly, or even quarterly basis. ESD tracking removes the need to retain paper or digital records of all personnel.
The extensive selection of ESD supplies includes personnel grounding material, non-static workbench supplies and tools, ESD packaging items such as metalized bags and moisture barrier bags and ESD handling boxes for transporting ESD sensitive materials for both in-plant use and shipping products. ESD flooring (either utilizing ESD wax or installing permanent ESD tiles) are a typical base for every ESD program.
Moreover, ESD and non-static generation are becoming increasingly important in server farms, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and biomedical manufacturing. ESD protection is growing more and more significant in each of these areas.
With the help of Restronics, ESD control methods can be installed. Whether it is one or two workbenches, or an entire facility, we can help.
