A premium mask machine at a competitive price

The Australian designed and manufactured Medmach mask machine is a superior solution to the need for localised mask manufacture.

It is available for export to regions outside of Australia.

The fully-automated machine makes a high-quality mask using up to four layers of roll-fed non-woven material laminated together using ultrasonic welders.

Depending on the materials used, it produces a Level 3 mask with Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) of greater than 99%, and Particulate Filtration Efficiency (PFE) of greater than 99% of particles greater than 0.1 microns, with excellent breathability.

Originally designed for Med-Con Australia, who produce PPE for the Australian Government and wider medical industry, it was the world's first fully automated mask machine and the first to use ultrasonic welding.

The design has been proven and tested in the market, with a working life of 30+ years (and still going strong).

The Medmach mask machine uses genuine brand name components, requires minimal maintenance or adjustments and has been updated to the highest international standards for electrical, mechanical, controls and safety design. It makes elasticised loop style masks at 44 or 80 masks per minute, or tie style at 44 masks per minute. 

The costs of installation are minimal and—unlike imports from many other regions—requires little or no remediation to meet local electrical and safety standards. The machine can be disassembled into two sections for international shipping.

Foodmach can assist with sourcing non-woven textiles, and has proven expertise in commissioning complex machines by remote.

I would like to receive further marketing communications (such as email) from Foodmach Pty Ltd.
