Simco-Ion’s Pinner bars are available as part of the Chargemaster Electrostatic Generating System. These bars are energized with our Charging generators to deliver a safe charge to temporarily pin or bond materials together. Quality construction and engineered for performance, the Pinner Series will help you achieve your Electrostatic Pinning goals whether working with IML, lamination, card tacking or edge pinning.

Pinner: Stainless steel emitters; 6 per inch.

Pinner-T: Tungsten emitter pics for longer life and less maintenance, high output pinning performance; 3 per inch.

Pinner-R: Removable stainless steel emitter pics for longer life; 5 per inch.

Features and Benefits

  • Super-rugged design for Industrial Environments
  • Resistively coupled for operator safety and reduced EMI emissions
  • High output for outstanding pinning performance
  • Part of the Innovative Chargemaster System, for demanding Industrial applications


Arcing can cause a multitude of problems such as EMI interference, shutdown of production lines and personnel injury due to surprise from electrical shock. Resistance to arcing means that the Pinner applicators continuously supply static charge. This feature makes them easier and safer to set up and use. The Pinner also produces superior bonding compared to less sophisticated applicators. The Pinner applicators are also available in a non-current limited version for less sensitive areas.

Features and Benefits

  • Current limited design for operator and equipment protection
  • Arc condition sensing and instantaneous intervention resulting in uninterrupted pinning action
  • Minimized EMI and RFI generation, preventing disruption of sensitive control
  • Optional manual adjust gooseneck with easy lock/release feature and insulative brackets
  • Replaceable pins to ensure maximum pinning performance
  • Rated for use in temperatures to 500°F
  • Designed and tested as an integral component of Simco-Ion electrostatic charging systems


The Chargemaster VCM is programmable for either voltage or current control mode to supply the high voltage for charging bars and various charging applicators used to electrostatically bond materials. The Chargemaster VCM provides a robust solution for a wide range of production processes maximizing the efficiency of the application.

Features and Benefits

  • Run up to 4 charging bars or applicators
