The abbreviation ESD means: Electrostatic Discharge
Here you will find many useful transport equipment in ESD version. These are electrically conductive and thus protect sensitive components against damage caused by electrical discharge. All transport trolleys are powder-coated electrically condictive in RAL 7015 slate grey. The shelves are made of electrically conductive derived timber material board in light grey acoording to DIN 68765.
Our ESD TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) castors also contribute to optimum conductivity. These are an own fetra development. Thanks to the hubs with precision deep-groove ball bearings, the castors offer many advantages on even floors and are characterised by low rolling resistance. They are odourless and non-marking. The swivel castors are fitted with brakes according to EN 1757-3 (safety of platform trolleys).
Electronic components are used in more and more products in the course of increasing digitalisation. Self-driving hoovers, the on-board electronics in cars or automated production facilities are equipped with sensitive technology. Manufacturers have a special duty of care: they have to take precautions to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) of sensitive components throughout the entire production chain. We have developed customised solutions for this and have expanded our product range of ESD trolleys with numerous models.
If two differently charged objects touch each other, electrostatic discharge occurs, which can impair the functionality of sensitive components. Whether circuits, resistors, etc. have been damaged by the effects of electrostatic discharge is often only determined after installation in the product. For the manufacturing company, this can mean not only financial losses but also a strain on the customer relationship. This can be avoided with the ESD trolleys from fetra. Not only the powder-coated tubular steel construction but also the shelves and the fetra TPE ESD castor are electrically conductive. The transport equipment thus ensures that potential electrical charges are discharged and that voltage breakdown does not occur. So far, the ESD range has included push bar, table and shelf trolleys, designed for different loads and available in several sizes. To cover even more areas of application, we have expanded our ESD range and included Euro box dollies, side trolleys and Euro box trolleys in various designs.
