MK delivers belt conveyors for PPE mask production

MK delivers belt conveyors for PPE mask production

MK has responded to a key customer request by delivering a large number of conveyors in a short time frame. The conveyors were required for a plant that needs to produce up to 100 PPE masks per minute in a fully automatic process. As the demand for such plants is extremely high due to the spread of the coronavirus, the conveyors needed to be delivered quickly as well as being easy to put into operation.

The MK conveyors needed to convey the masks to separate production steps within the plant, such as folding, bonding and supplying nose clips. The masks are then disinfected in subsequent steps. The conveyor had to be designed for a three-shift operation.

Together with the customer’s design team, MK employees configured a conveyor consisting of as many standard components as possible, but which still satisfied the necessary cleanliness requirements. The best-selling MK GUF-P 2000 conveyor was the best solution for the job. The highly standardised belt conveyor can be quickly delivered and is easy to integrate, which enabled MK to deliver 40 conveyors in just a few weeks. The conveyor is also reasonably priced thanks to the high level of standardisation.

An FDA-approved belt was used in order to keep the masks free of contamination. MK constructed the belt conveyor with low-maintenance, indirect drives with timing belts to ensure that the three-shift operation runs reliably and without malfunctions.
