In electronics manufacturing, precision and attention to detail are paramount. When handling sensitive electronic components, the risk of Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can have big consequences.

ESD is the sudden flow of electricity between two electrically charged objects caused by contact, an electrical short, or dielectric breakdown. It can occur when working with electronics and can cause severe damage to sensitive components, leading to malfunctions or complete failure. ESD carts provide a dynamic solution that combines mobility and static control.

In this article, we explore the significance of ESD-safe carts in protecting sensitive electronics and maintaining the integrity of electronic manufacturing processes.

The Role & Benefits of ESD Carts in Electronic Manufacturing

plastic laminate shelves esd adjust storage electronicESD transport carts provide a controlled and safe platform for transporting electronic components and devices, reducing the risk of ESD incidents. Here are the key aspects that make ESD mobile carts invaluable:

Electrostatic Dissipative Materials

ESD carts are made from special materials that spread out or scatter static charges. These materials stop static electricity from building up on the cart’s surface, making it less likely to have a sudden electric shock during transportation.

Precision Mobility

ESD mobile carts are made to move easily, with wheels that can turn in any direction. This makes moving electronic parts around spaces simple without worrying about damaging them from sudden electric shocks.

Safe Handling

The design of ESD carts includes features such as adjustable shelves, bins, and dividers. These elements allow for the safe and organized storage of electronic components during transit, reducing the potential for ESD incidents.


Electronic manufacturing environments vary widely in their needs and workflows. ESD static control carts can be customized to accommodate different sizes and quantities of components, offering flexibility in their application.

Compliant with ESD Standards

ESD-compliant carts are designed to follow specific rules for keeping electronics safe. These rules ensure the carts are important to protecting valuable electronic parts.

Keeping Electronics Safe

Getting More Done

Factories that use ESD carts can get more work done without interruptions from ESD problems. The carts make moving and organizing electronics easier during manufacturing, reducing mistakes and wasted time.

Using ESD carts shows that a company is serious about following the industry’s rules to keep electronics safe.

Types of ESD Rolling Carts

ESD carts are available in various types to meet different needs and applications in industries where static control is crucial. Here are some of the carts we offer:

  • ESD Shelf Carts: ESD shelf carts and ESD utility carts transport various electronic components, tools, and materials. Shelf carts can be customized to accommodate different-sized items, making them suitable for electronic manufacturing and repair processes. These carts feature adjustable shelves to accommodate items of various heights.
  • Mobile ESD Workstations: These are equipped with work surfaces and shelves. These carts are designed for technicians and engineers to work on sensitive electronic equipment while ensuring static control.
  • ESD Bin and Tote Carts: ESD bin carts feature bins or compartments for organizing small electronic components and parts. They are commonly used in electronic assembly and manufacturing settings to transport parts safely while preventing ESD. Tote carts have ESD-safe totes attached to the cart’s frame. These are particularly useful for transporting small electronic components, preventing them from coming into contact with non-ESD surfaces.
  • ESD Tray Carts: ESD Tray carts have trays designed to securely hold electronic components during transport. They are suitable for handling larger quantities of components or semi-finished electronic products.
  • ESD Tool Carts: ESD tool carts transport and organize electronic repair and manufacturing tools. They often feature compartments for various tools, ensuring they are readily accessible while preventing ESD.
  • ESD Computer Carts: ESD Computer carts are designed for securely transporting and working on laptops and computers in environments where static control is critical, such as cleanrooms and electronics manufacturing.
  • ESD Instrument Carts: ESD Instrument carts are tailored for safely transporting delicate electronic instruments and measuring equipment. They provide both mobility and static control.
  • PCB (Printed Circuit Board) Carts: PCB carts transport and store printed circuit boards, ensuring they remain protected from ESD throughout manufacturing.
  • SMT (Surface Mount Technology) Carts: ESD SMT carts transport SMT reels, trays, and components, ensuring ESD control in electronics manufacturing facilities.
  • ESD Cleanroom Carts: ESD cleanroom carts and ESD wire carts are designed for use in controlled environments with stringent cleanliness requirements. They provide ESD protection while meeting cleanroom standards.

Each type of ESD cart is tailored to specific industry needs and applications, ensuring the safe and secure transport of electronic components and equipment while mitigating the risk of electrostatic discharge.
