Doyen Medipharm LLC, Lakeland, FL, a specialist supplier of converting and packaging lines for the medical and pharmaceutical industries, is launching a new 4DS wound care converting machine into the U.S. market. The 4DS complements Doyen's range of high-end manufacturing equipment, employing the renowned and proven converting technology to provide a solution for manufacturers of advanced wound care products with lower production requirements while retaining Doyen quality and efficiency.
The dressing converting machine was first introduced at the Compamed/
Medica show in Dusseldorf, Germany in November 2008, where it impressed customers and visitors with its high operating speed and the quality of the finished product (a multi-layered island dressing).
The system has been designed for fast changeover to various types of products using interchangeable tooling and modules. As with all Doyen solutions, the 4DS is fully validated as standard and is manufactured to meet all relevant building standards.
As the model exhibited at Compamed was a standalone machine, many visitors were interested in linking it to a packaging process. "We offer full integration of four side seal packaging modules for an efficient automated process," explained Neil Andrews, vice president of sales and marketing, "The modular build of the 4DS also offers the ideal basis for integrating a variety of performance-improving components like auto-splicing, printing or in-line vision inspection."
