ESD roller conveyors

  1. Aug 16, 2012 #1
    Do they exist? Looking for any recommendations on ESD "proof" metal roller conveyors. Not sure if the static generated by the rollers can be dissipated with grounding straps, etc. I have a massive payload (250kg), so I'd rather steer clear from belt, chain, and pallet systems.

    I'm pretty sure they exist. You see rollers used all around electronics production lines in ESD safe areas. Have you talked to any roller manufacturers and asked about ESD safe configurations?
