Making Surgical Face Masks

A surgical mask is also referred to as a procedure, face mask, or a medical mask. This mask is mostly worn by health professionals while performing tasks like surgery. The main role of the mask is to prevent health professionals from falling victim to the bacteria that is shed in liquid droplets and aerosols. However, traditionally, the masks are not meant to protect the wearer from inhaling airborne disease-causing viruses and bacteria. This was the task of a respirator mask. But currently, these masks are doing a great job preventing the spread of Coronavirus. Surgical masks are manufactured using a face mask machine. In this write-up, we discuss features of a face mask machine.

  • Productivity

Face masks are awfully small products that need to be manufactured in large quantities. It is, therefore, a lot of work to make a single product at a time and by hand. A face mask making machine is designed in such a way that it can manufacture up to thousands of masks in a single day. The productivity is mostly influenced by the fact that the different parts of the machine are integrated in the way they function.

  • Automation

Face mask machines are designed in such a way that they are automatic. A fully automatic face mask or surgical mask making machine is one that can realize a series of processes. The process normally starts with material feeding. Once the materials are fed into the machine, the next process is automatic. The next process is the nose clip welding. This process is automatically followed by the blank mask welding process, folding, cutting, ear looping, and binding. The machines are designed so that each step is automatic and integrated. The only part where human resource is required is the process of feeding the materials and collecting the finished mask product.

  • Safety

A good face mask making machine is a safe one. The safety feature includes both the safety of human resource in the manufacturing dock and the products. For instance, you do not want a machine that puts employees at risk or one that puts the raw materials at risk of such issues as fire. Face mask making machines are designed in such a way that they are safe for both the users and materials.

  • Quality

The quality of the final product is greatly influenced by the quality of the machine. Most face mask making machine manufacturers follow a stringent quality control process, which helps to ensure that the resulting product is without a flaw. The maintenance of the machine also plays a great role in ensuring the quality of the end product. An automatic machine does not require many human resources. However, some require human management here and there. In such a case, the quality of human resources influences the quality of the final product.


The Deqi Surgical Face Mask Machine is one of the best products of its kind in the market. It is an automatic disposable medical face mask making machine made of aluminum allow and 304 stainless steel.
