We have run Mydata machines for 10+ years with no ESD damage from the machine itself that we know of. Can you tell us how you have verified it is the machine causing the ESD damage? It seems to me the ESD damage would be far more likely coming from

This issue is coming from a customer. The customer demands that we do not mechanically center or test passive components, because of issues they had in the past. There has been a studies that it takes about 8-10 newtons to damage chip. Most of our pa

It's called running every day 3 shifts for 22 years. Anyway....My precise numbers aren't handy but lets just say a lot of parts were placed in that time. I would be pretty confident in saying that the centering jaws do not cause ESD damage on Mydat

We have placed billions of components with our Mydata's. No issues with ESD.

Has anybody had issues with the Mydata centering jaws causing esd and part damage. I understand we can lower the force on the components but ESD is my main concern. In the past I heard of companies testing the centering jaws because of this concern.

That is a lot of Mydata lines to place billions of parts.

The centering jaws are made out of copper, I believe...and conductive. I'd suggest that the conductivity of the copper makes it a fairly poor source of ESD damage in a component. I have observed physical damage to components from the centering jaws

Hello We a Mydata and put all kinda of components with the midas unit, but never had problems with ESD, and some of them are very delicate parts, perhaps like our colleague said perhaps you should look at the trays or feeders that you are using, pe

Hi, Not really. "In aerosol sprays, friction is generated as liquids race through the plastic tubes of the spray can. This creates powerful electrostatic charges (ESD) of up to 12,000 volts; ESD voltages as low as 150 volts can cause ESD damage." I
