Detall ESD Workbench Features And Advantages
Here is a summary or overview about the basics of an ESD workbench
and how an ESD work bench is constructed and used.
The ESD protection is most important in electronic industry for
electronics production, repairing, testing, and any work related
What is ESD and Its damage for electronics?
Mainly, the ESD protection solution guides the static electricity
to the earth ground with a safety way.
Workbench is widely used in the electronics industry because it is
the most frequently used equipment in electronics assemblies.
That’s why the static electricity guiding of the workbench is the
one of the key elements for any ESD protected area that can be
provided by the ESD workbench.
Why we shouldn’t use a conductive workbench to guide the static
electricity to earth?
Conductive surface is originally used as an ESD work surface like
stainless steel. This is not a right concept. These are far from
ideal because of the following viewpoints.
- The conductive surface will short out any connections making
operation and testing of the circuit impracticable.
- The conductive surface will provide a low impedance discharge path
that will give a very rapid discharge, resulting in high currents
flowing and possible damage to the circuitry.
- A further reason for having a high resistance dissipative surface
rather than a fully conductive surface is that of safety. If high
voltage is present in a system, then accidentally touching a
conductive work surface and a high voltage source can be dangerous.
Accordingly, safety precautions necessitate that a high resistance
dissipative surface is used.
In order to provide the correct environment for an ESD workstation,
an ESD workbench should have a static dissipative surface.
Static dissipative surface
Typically, an ESD protective work surface should have a resistance
value between the 1.0 x 109 and 1.0 x 106 ohms. This is for two
reasons, firstly for preventing a rapid discharge of any static
that may cause damage, and secondly for safety reasons as mentioned
The key to an operation of the ESD work bench is the surface of the
What is the work surface of Detall ESD workbench?
As static can build up anywhere on a work bench, it is essential
that all working surface of the bench must be static dissipative.
Either electronics assemblies, or tools may be placed here the
shelves need to be part of the ESD protected area. Also, if tools
are placed on a non-ESD dissipative surface, attract static, and
used to work on an electronics assembly, then the chances of damage
The top of the table is most frequently used working surface on a
workbench. And most of ESD workbench will use with the soldering
works, then it requests the worktops not only the static
dissipative but also the fireproof. Detall ESD Workbench table top
uses the best ESD laminating from Wilson art in which the
resistance value is 1.0 x 106 <1.0 x 109 ohms and fireproof at
the same time.
Other working surface:
The ESD workbench is consists of a number of different elements
* Shelves: Shelves are usually use for placing and other
electronics spare parts for electronics assembly, repair and
inspection. Detall ESD shelves has two kinds of the materials.
First is known as the metal shelves and the second is named as the
material just like the table top – ESD laminating.
* Metalwork: While the metalwork itself is conductive, the paint
used is not normally conductive. For an ESD workbench, it is
necessary to utilize static dissipative painting to prevent any
sudden discharges. Moreover, the painting must be strong adhesion
and durable because this painting is the core elements for a ESD
workbench, the most valuable things should be used very long time
for high cost performance. Detall use the special durable ESD
powder painting that is anti-scratch with the ideal resistance of
1.0 x 106 <1.0 x 109 ohms.
Why an ESD rubber mat on a normal workbench shouldn’t use?
Some user said “A ESD Workbench can be created by placing an ESD
rubber mat on the normal tables and connected with a wire to the
Seriously, it is not enough to have an ESD mat on worktop, why?
1st. By placing an ESD mat on tabletop and a wire connecting, the
static discharge will get only one way to the ground that is
through the connecting wire, the static will fail to discharge to
ground if any problem occurs in this wire.
2nd, The static can be produced anywhere in the environment, on the
tools and work bench, In electronics production, repairing and
assembly, chips, tools and test equipment may be placed on other
parts of workbench, the static may be accumulate here. And when we
put the chips on workbench parts, process the electronics with
tools, the static damage will happen.
3rd, ESD mat usually made by rubber or PVC, poor wear resistant,
easy to age and short using life. In soldering working, the high
temperature tin slag and welding gun can damage the rubber and PVC
Characteristics of Detall ESD workbench:
- Durable Material: Strong cold steel with the anti-scratch ESD
powder coating. ESD laminating worktop (fire proof)
- Ergonomic design: comfortable and beauty, can improve the
- Modular design: various accessories are changeable for combination
- Standard design, accessories are exchangeable, higher cost
performance for changing damaged parts.
- Permanent ESD property: ESD Laminate top and ESD powder coating are
Use an appropriate ESD workbench is the demand of the day and there
should be no compromise in this reference. For this intention, the
services of Detall ESD workbench is outstanding as they are up to
the mark that meet the modern world demands and available in
reasonable and thus affordable price.
