Quick Changeover of Machines for the Production of Protective Masks

All around the world, nothing is more valuable than a protective mask right now. In the spirit of #stayhealthy, Helmholz GmbH & Co. KG is happy its I/O system is being used in the production of disposable protective masks by a customer in China.

However, since the Covid 19 outbreak, there has been a major gap in global supply. As a result, many companies are retooling areas of production to manufacture respirators. The assembly lines equipped with TB20 I/O systems from Helmholz, a major Chinese manufacturer, have been running flawlessly for production for disposable protective masks since the beginning. Helmholz and the production company prove that flexibility in automation solutions achieves fast and reliable results, even in special times.
