Electrostatic Spray Equipment Manufacturers and their Electrostatic Dispute Cases
An overview of the most important Electrostatic spray equipment manufacturers reveals that there are only two in the USA. Electrostatic discharge, or EDM, is a technique for creating an electric charge within a material. This process is not a new one but only recently have people started using high powered equipment for this purpose. High voltage systems and machines use the principles of electrostatic discharges to produce large amounts of temporary charges. They can be used for a wide range of purposes from protecting plants and machinery from potential harm, or even creating a controlled environment where it is easier to keep equipment and other materials safe.
In recent years there has been a serious increase in the popularity of electrostatic spray equipment and paint sprayers. These tools are used for a wide range of applications, ranging from security and crime prevention, protecting buildings and private property, or simply covering up evidence of theft. Electrostatic discharge products are also used on a smaller scale within the home, such as the paint sprayer found in most kitchens and bathrooms. Paint sprayers come in a wide variety of forms, including backpack sprayers and canisters, and although they may seem similar to a typical portable sprayer they are actually very different.
The main types of electrostatic spray equipment are air atomized systems and the short-stroke systems. Air atomized systems use pressurized air to create a charged object. This creates a small “ping” sound, which some people hear when there is static build up. The air atomized system works on lower voltages and so does not require a high-powered compressor like the short-stroke systems.
Short-stroke systems work with the high voltage power source and high frequency technology claims by many paint supply companies. It uses a pump to move a low-voltage charge through a medium, usually foam, but can also be through a small amount of air or water. After being sprayed, the foam neutralizes the charge then releases. It is important to note that all claims 5.0 systems are not alike, and not all systems will work with every brand of paint.
Both the air atomizer and the pump must be certified by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). To determine if the product meets the USPTO’s requirements, it is important to review the definitions of both the USPTO and the Uniform Commercial Code (UPC) in relation to each product’s patented features and limitations. Paint spraying equipment can be certified as providing patented or unique features and/or as providing unique or unauthorized methods of operation, by reviewing the USPTO’s definitions of these terms. The USPTO publishes a list of patents covering a range of paint spraying equipment.
Once a patent has been filed, it becomes a public record and it can only be issued for a period of fourteen years from the filing date. During this period, anyone can contest the patent by filing a lawsuit in federal district court. If the plaintiff cannot prove that the defendant’s industrial paint spraying machine was illegally designed, the court will issue an unconditional judgment against the company. This means that the manufacturer will not be allowed to sell any parts or repair the machinery until the case is settled.
After the date expires, if the defendant does not settle the case, the plaintiff may file an action in state court to recover damages. If the complaint is successful, the court will issue an order to pay damages. Some states allow the victims of industrial crimes to recover damages from both the manufacturer and distributor. Others may limit the damages to the direct victim. There are a number of class action lawsuits in which the manufacturers and distributors of electrostatic machines are holding liable for personal injury claims.
When industrial crime victims file a patent infringement suit against companies manufacturing electrostatic discharges, they often seek monetary damages only. Many victims fail to obtain sufficient compensation because they do not know enough about the technology or they lack sufficient knowledge to understand how to obtain adequate damages. The manufacturers often have the experience and knowledge to help the victims obtain a sufficient settlement. Many victims mistakenly believe that filing a patent infringement suit requires very little expense. Unfortunately, it often requires considerable expense and consumes a lot of time and effort. Therefore, victims should take care when choosing the right patent attorney and should also consider hiring an experienced patent litigation attorney to handle their case.
