What ESD can do - The dangers of the “invisible menace”
Manufacturing experts refer to ESD or electrostatic discharge as the “invisible menace”. That’s because ESD packs the double burden of being invisible and capable of significant amounts of damage to machinery and humans. For example:

  • Damage to Electronic Components: When static electricity discharges through such electronic components as integrated circuits, transistors, capacitors, and resistors, it can cause irreversible damage. That damage might not be immediately noticeable, but it can affect their performance, leading to premature failure or malfunction.
  • Fire and Explosion: Static electricity can ignite flammable liquids and gases, causing fires or explosions. If you use flammable solvents, cleaners, and gases at your electronics manufacturing facility, you have genuine cause for concern. 
  • Safety Hazards for Workers: It goes without saying that if the above bullet happens, workers are at risk as a static spark can ignite vapors or fumes, causing fires or explosions.
  • Production Delays and Costs: The damage to equipment and delays in production caused by static electricity can lead to increased costs in the form of downtime, scrapped or defective products, and costly repairs.
