Previously, PCMC wet wipes machines operated with less than 20% alcohol, producing disinfectant wipes for personal, home, industrial, and automotive use. However, the COVID-19 pandemic created a spike in demand for sanitizing wipes that contain at least 70% alcohol, the key component in killing or deactivating viruses.
The new designs feature increased air exchange for better ventilation and additional sensors to eliminate the risk of flash points and fires. The machines also include IDS 150/300 integrated dual stackers and a redesigned Mako saw to meet more stringent regulations and higher machine performance expectations.
PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO (Sept. 27-29, Las Vegas Convention Center) will reunite the packaging and processing community, offering new products, technologies and solutions, while implementing up-to-date protocols for a safe and successful in-person event. Attendee registration opens in May.
“We are proud to offer new solutions for our customers that will ultimately put more sanitizing wipes in homes and offices around the world,” said Laercio Catao, PCMC Nonwovens Sales Director. “We made this possible by tapping into our extensive history working with nonwovens and hazardous materials like solvents in our flexo printing presses. The result is a machine we are confident produces high-quality sanitizing wet wipes and helps keep operators safe.
