Case 3. Copier Manufacturing Plant Case 4. FPD (Flat Panel Display) Factory
100% reduction in complaints Defect rate reduced by 75%
On average, manufacturers will receive five complaints every month regarding dust particle defects. However, when TRINC's Phased Array Ionizer was introduced to one assembly line, dust particles were kept from sticking to the product and complaints were eliminated.
Employees of the assembly line said "We tried many times to blow off the dust, but it never came off this easy before". They now use the same ionizers in their plant in China.

■Installation example
Panels attract dust when unpacked and placed on a process line or in between different assembly lines which lowers the yield rate.
The lines are isolated from the outside air by transparent acrylic covers, but dust particles still finds a way to attach to the panels.
By ionizing the glass substrates and inactivating dust particles, one factory recorded a 75% reduction in defects beginning the next day.

Introduction of TRINC’s EPA Ionizer Cannot produce the products without TRINC
To improve painting quality and reduce re-work job at a factory that is painting aircrafts, After TRINC's EPA Ionizer was introduced, It has greatly contributed to a reduction of defects.





Delivery delays were caused by unexpected dust defects at a factory which manufactures game machine cases. An upset buyer came to the factory to investigate the cause of the defects.
The reason for the issue was that a worker forgot to switch on the Gun TRINC he was using, which meant he was trying to remove dust just with air blowing only. Since then he could not get the most effectiveness of TRINC's powerful DC static elimination. As soon as he switched on the Gun TRINC, the dust problem was completely solved.
"I can't produce these products without TRINC anymore," said the factory manager.
