Machinery manufacturer Zuiko has developed a face mask production line capable of making 600 materials per minute. Each mask features a three-ply, pleated design with a nose fitting element.
Zuiko has also developed alternative ear hook components as a solution to shortages of key raw materials.
The mask machine uses standard technologies from diapers and sanitary napkin machines like zero-speed splicing for continuous production, precision material lamination, and soft welding of materials.
The product is inspected at several points during the converting processes and any product that is out of specification is automatically rejected by the machine. Products can be stacked into multiple pieces before exiting to the packaging equipment or exiting one piece at a time depending on the customer’s needs.
