Reflecting a few months after exhibiting at the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show, we’ve been buoyed that the optimism we witnessed during the event has continued. As requirements for ESD flooring continue to increase for Ecotile in 2023, here’s a quick look back at our experience of attending the annual show.
The packaging industry used the terms “static dissipative” and “conductive” to categorise materials based on their ability to shield components from electrostatic damage. The Electronics Component Industry Association originally declared that conductive materials offer better shielding than static-dissipative materials. Official ESD standards and test methods were developed as studies realised the impact of humidity, different […]
Many electronic devices are sensitive to static, which can damage their internal components and lead to costly failures. Electronics manufacturers use electrostatic discharge (ESD flooring) to protect components from static electricity. ESD flooring is essential to many businesses in the electronics manufacturing industry, impacting device reliability and reducing returns and warranties. In turn limiting finacial […]
Addressing procurement fears during uncertain times The months approaching the end of the tax year is often the time for businesses to focus their attention on controlling costs. Whilst this year will be no different, it will be set against a global backdrop of increasing uncertainty, which will no doubt see purchasing and waste reduction […]
Concrete has always been the go-to flooring solution for commercial environments such as manufacturing, warehouses, or workshops. However, the nature of repeated heavy footfall, vehicle movement, and lifting and dropping of heavy items will inevitably take its toll. Over time concrete will start to show wear and tear. There’s nothing new in that. The presence […]
Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, businesses have been tested in many different ways, for some it has resulted in their unfortunate closure, whilst for others it has been a seed of opportunities with a massive boom in sales and business expansion (particularly in the case of online e-commerce stores). But with an increased […]
