One of the biggest risks at electronic workstations is posed by electrostatic discharge. This can lead to considerable damage in production. The charging of objects or people at the ESD workstation thus needs to be prevented at all times, and the conduction of displaced charge guaranteed. ESD chairs from Bimos provide reliable protection at the ESD workplace: The upholstery, steel parts, plastic, castors and glides are conductible. The comprehensive conduction of all components makes ESD chairs from Bimos a reliable overall solution.
A top choice for ESD workplaces: When it comes to conductive work chairs that look good while delivering on ergonomics and comfort, the only real option is the ESD Neon chair. Just like all the ESD solutions from Bimos, this model far exceeds current standards. Combined with its outstanding design, the ESD chair bridges the gap between the highest of technical requirements and lasting comfort when sitting.
Ergonomic support, practical handling and outstanding robustness - modern industry demands specific requirements of the quality of work chairs. With its unique industry ergonomics as well as simple, intuitive adjustment to the respective user, Nexxit automatically ensures the correct sitting posture. It impresses with high comfort and extreme resistance for use in industrial environments.
Reliable ESD protection meets flexible seating: With its conductive surfaces and volume-conductive materials, the Sintec chair offers outstanding suitability for use at the ESD workplace. Its excellent ergonomic quality, its comfort and its individual functions make this ESD chair the ideal seating solution for any work situation.
Solid and inexpensive - ESD Unitec is the basic solution for the ESD workplace. It offers all the standard protective features for the prevention of electrostatic charge and allows for simple adjustment to meet respective user requirements. This ESD chair is ideal for workstations at which the employee needs to both sit and stand. It has a generous seat and a high backrest.
The all-rounder among the ESD chairs - ESD Basic is the most economic seating solution for the ESD workplace and is particularly good value for money. Its ergonomic design, high level of user comfort and reliable ESD protection according to EN 61340-5-1 represent all the important features of a high-performance work chair for the electronic industry.
Product information Some of the tasks associated with ESD areas call for elevated seating positions or require workers to stand for long periods or to alternate between standing up and sitting down. As a result, their bodies are often subjected to a great deal of physical stress. Bimos has the answer to these requirements: stools and footrests suitable for ESD areas that support the human body and relieve physical stress.
Like lightning striking a tree – for a semiconductor, a sudden exchange of charge carriers can have devastating consequences. Static charging and discharging present a major risk, especially where microelectronic components are involved. Many environments in the electrical industry are thus subject to special conditions when it comes to the use of work chairs: A working environment is only deemed ESD-compatible once it is equipped with suitable ESD chairs. In order to meet the requirements for an ESD workstation, certain standards apply.
REQUIREMENTS FOR FURNISHING THE ESD WORKPLACE
The European standard EN 61340 which regulates ESD protection and provides support in the selection of appropriate measures specifies that the resistance at all areas of the seat that could, when used normally, come into contact with the human body must have a contact point with the floor of less than 109 Ω. With the ever-smaller components in microelectronics becoming increasingly sensitive, ESD chairs can be expected to meet even stricter requirements in the future.
ESD CHAIRS FROM BIMOS: AN OVERALL SYSTEM YOU CAN RELY ON
ESD chairs from Bimos boast unique protective properties, making them valuable assets for any ESD workplace. Bleeder resistance and surface resistance of the ESD chairs is 106 Ω. With their optimum selection of materials and joining technology, the ESD chairs ensure that electrostatic charge does not develop at the chair and that the charge generated by the user is reliably discharged (to the conductive floor). With conductive comfort upholstery, conductively coated steel parts, volume conductive plastic, castors and glides, as well as a comprehensive conduction of all components, the ESD chairs from Bimos are not only a combination of effective protection measures. They comprise a reliable overall system that guarantees optimum conditions at the ESD workplace.
