Face Mask machinery and equipment

face mask machinery and equipment

In this article, we will share the different types of equipment used to manufacture these important items in large-scale manufacturing. We introduced innovations in mask manufacturing and machine performance after exploring online. Sharing these machines and records here for your information only. For more detailed information, you can contact our machine builders and machine suppliers.

As mentioned in the previous article, there are two types of face shields: surgical masks and respirators. The collection system for these two will also show up as something else.

Surgical Mask

These are the least difficult masks, so they are very easy to make. There are two types of nursing masks available, one with elastic circles and one with a hook and loop. The manufacturing process is the same for both types, and the accessible machines are of two types, fully programmed and self-loading.

1. Fully programmed machine:

Fully programmed machines work as if they did all the work at the touch of a button. The raw materials are 3 or 4 layers of polypropylene non-woven, multi-purpose loop or non-woven tape, and front rail. The course starts with working with texture and composition. Given the evolution of the mask, this still collapses into the center. On the way, place the nose applicator and put it on the canvas and it’s ready. Next, the layers go through ultrasonic welding machines that weld along the wire and hold them in place over the nose stem. This provides a complete line and more efficient bacterial filtration. During the reaction, the masks are individually cut to the size accordingly.

The mask is then put together and welded with ear hooks or with welded joints to provide full-face coverage. Whereas, a typical machine creation limit can be up to 45-55 skins at a time, HR up to 3 people, one talented, the rest incompetent. Below is a video of the device in action.

2. Semi-Automatic Machine

The assembly path continues as before, but for the automatic hoist, the machine parts separate in the same way that the belt/connection assembly works on the stock machine. Initial responses to making the clear face shield included repairing the nose incision, fitting the edges, and cutting the final material. Place the back on the circle so the mask is ready. Below are specific recordings of both types. 

3. Respirators Manufacturing Machines

The assembly of respirators can often be compared one at a time, however, their various shapes and components, including tubing, molded foam, etc. Requires many machine connections. The smallest set of respirators can work on a fully programmed machine. Firstly, remove the clear mask and then solder it to the various joints. Here are some records showing how different ventilators work. Click on the image to view the machine and gear record.

Materials used to make masks

The most common material used to make them is polypropylene, with a thickness of 20 or 25 grams per square meter. Masks are of polystyrene, polycarbonate, polyethylene, or polyester.

How did you handle the mask?

The mask is ready in several stages. Initially, collecting twill, polyvalent fabrics, needles, threads, and scissors from the market. Then, at this point, the cotton fabric is cut into two rectangles about 10 x 6 inches. Furthermore, next to stitch the two squares together to form a shape.

What type of fabric does the mask used?


For example, tightly woven cotton works to make the most of high-count paper; researchers report that four-layer silk fabric combinations, such as cotton and wool or cotton and gauze, are best to make masks to protect against the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV -2 Excellent material for spread.
