Up to 1 million surgical masks per day: W+D/BICMA develops highly productive face mask converting line06/04/2020

Neuwied, June 4, 2020  -  Reacting to the worldwide shortage and peak demand for high quality lower cost face masks, the W+D/BICMA hygiene group of Winkler+Dünnebier has developed a fully automatic, high-speed face mask converting line for the production of high quality disposable face masks: Auxilium FM.

This new converting line has a speed of up to 150 m/min (492 ft/min) / up to 800 face masks per minute and is able to produce up to 1 million high quality face masks per day − making it one of the fastest mask production machines in the world.

The Auxilium FM mask line laminates and converts three or more layers of appropriate nonwoven materials (spunbond, meltblown, thermobonded or others). By converting suitable raw materials, producers may apply for EN 14683 I, II or IIR certification for masks they made on this quality machine. It combines W+D/Bicma’s proven technology in highspeed nonwoven processing with newly designed features like nose clip and earloop application.
