Converting unit

IMA FACE 400 mask converter is based on a well consolidated platform widely used to convert products made by lamination and welding of different fabric webs by hot melt or ultrasonic sealing. The unit is able to produce surgical masks in 3 layers, with nose clip and elastic threads applied transversally to be worn “over head”.

Elastics are seamed to mask body by hot melt and an additional side patch is applied on top of them in order to close them in a robust and safe sandwich. This process allows to use all type of elastics as polymeric, textile, round, squared, providing ultimate flexibility in product design. Layers are welded together by ultrasonic system to give a nice and well defined profile pattern. FACE 400 includes an automatic stacking device and allows a quick and electronic counting change over to be operated on its HMI avoiding any machine stop.

This unit is designed and manufactured according to the latest sanitary design standards; this makes it extremely easy to sanitize and helps keeping the machine and products safe from undesired bacteria proliferation. FACE 400 is capable to run from 200 up to 400 masks/min depending on raw materials and counting. It can be adjusted to produce different mask sizes by simply replacing the profile of the ultrasonic unit.

 

Packaging unit

IMA FACE 400 packaging unit is a modular flow wrapper designed to handle surgical masks. Ideal for integration into complete lines thanks to an easy plug&play solution, it can also be provided with a manual feeding system for a stand alone application. This platform is available in different configurations aimed to handle any size of overhead mask as well as both short and long side leading wrapping style.

Given this versatility, the machine allows to run stacks from 1 to 40+ pieces and also to handle multiple (parallel/adjacent) piles, both short and long leading. Machine speed capability is up to 200 ppm with a single mask. Pillow packs with or without gusseting as well as euro hole feature are also available. Complete with automatic splicing device and a quality control system, it can also be equipped with an in line printing unit. Easy machine cleaning and accessibility are guaranteed according to the latest design standards.
