In Flat Panel Display (FPD) manufacturing, automated handling charges both sides of the glass panels. Conventional ionization technology has a limited effect for ESD and particle contamination control as most of the ionizing bars are put over the top of the glass panels. But the glass has also been charged on the bottom of the panel, and as the glass gets bigger and panel transportation speeds increase, higher residual charges cause more damaging ESD Events and attract more particles.
