Following successful launch of the D-Tech line for production of surgical/medical masks in April 2020, the international technology group Andritz AG, Graz/Austria, is now presenting its new D-Tech face mask line for respiratory masks, such as duckbill and flat fold respirators.
The new respiratory mask line can be customized to laminate different layers of fabric. It comprises unwinding and guiding units for nonwovens, automatic splicing of all raw materials, cutting and positioning devices for the metal nose bar, an edge welding and cutting unit, a 90° rotation process, positioning and welding of the ear loop elastics, as well as quality control using the D-Tech Vision System. Other options are also available. Machine dimensions can be customized according to customers’ plant requirements.
The fully automated production line includes complete ultrasonic technology, a facility to include printing systems, and an interface to the automatic packaging machine. Products can be packaged in bags by an automatic flow pack machine or packed in cardboard boxes by an automatic cartoner. Producers already operating an Andritz D-Tech surgical mask line can upgrade it to produce respiratory masks with a special kit.
