Altico Static Control Solutions, a division of Actum Electronics, is the only business in Southern Africa which focuses exclusively on the control of ESD (ElectroStatic Discharge) in the working environment
What is ESD?
ESD stands for ElectroStatic Discharge and is the transfer of electrostatic charge between two objects. The resulting discharge from an electron imbalance may be so small that the human body can’t feel it, nevertheless it can have serious consequences. In electronics manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, ordnance manufacture and storage, ESD incidents can often cause material, component or system failures, which may prove costly and sometimes even dangerous.
