Creating a system for less waste in hygiene products

Hygiene Solutions

Saving approx. 85 % of single-wrap material

Get inspired by our concept for more sustainable products, focusing on the replacement of the typical PE single-wrap pouch for menstrual or incontinence pads. By applying technology from W+D’s high-speed handkerchief machines, we have developed a system for creating a small count of three to five folded products, wrapped in a reclosable pouch. With up to 300 ministacks per minute, the capacity of this product’s production system far exceeds the speed of typical hygiene bagfillers. Wrapping material can include classic PE film, recycled film, as well as paper or other bio-based materials.


„Single-wrap for menstrual or incontinence pads causes an average of roughly 25 Mio sqm of pouchfilm per year per production line. It is time to make a quantum leap, by introducing new wrapping concepts, avoiding plastic wasteand reducing the overall consumption of material.“

Marc Wolpers, VP Sales & Market Development Hygiene Solutions, W+D
