Continuously produce sophisticated stoma care products – meaning your production technology must be able to handle web processing perfectly. For this reason, we combine decades of experience and new technologies in plant construction to form continuous production processes. A permanent in-feed of all materials guarantees you maximum machine availability.

More speed, less material loss
Why you are on the right track with Optima for the production of high-quality stoma products

The production of stoma care products comes with a huge responsibility. The goal is to enable patients to live comfortably and safely. Optima manufacturing systems support you from the development through to series production – safely and efficiently.

Three criteria considered particularly important for producing skin barrier plates quickly and reliably are: Positioning, cutting accuracy and web tension control. We meet these with sophisticated system technology and extensive expertise in handling diverse materials, such as hydrocolloid, film or foam. Integrated process steps minimize your consumption of materials and your product costs.

Whether you develop ostomy products from scratch or adapt them, make use of our in-house technical center for testing to achieve the best possible results in subsequent operation.

Unwind with autosplicer

Attach web manually and stop the machine for this? Spare yourself the effort: Optima autosplicers handle the continuous supply of all common materials. The aim: nonstop converting.

Plant for printing products


Whether a logo or application note: Thanks to the integrated dual color printing systems, you can add high-quality imprints to your web material at full speed. A corona pretreatment optimizes the print image, a camera system then checks its quality.

Twin barrel emptying

When it comes to the twin barrel press, the system is also designed for continuous production: While one barrel empties consumable material, you prepare the second barrel. The emptying system switches over to the next barrel automatically and on time. The entire product path is heated, from the barrel emptying to the dosing nozzle or to the extruder.

Dosing via multi-head dosing unit

This ensures no drops are lost: The system dispenses its valuable ingredients exactly as required. This is both sustainable and minimizes your consumption of materials and product costs. You can set the dispense mode for product quantity and geometry individually, ensuring the optimal production of the subsequent product layer. The heated and multi-head dosing system guarantees gentle handling and high machine output.

Forming via multi-head press module

The press module continuously forms defined cookies from pre-dosed product portions – in a controlled and reproducible manner. The press parameters for each product can be stored directly in the system control. Format changes are quick and easy. This means you can consistently produce completely different formats in the highest quality.

Web lamination

Your Optima system includes the right station for every lamination task. You handle both the lamination and delamination of several webs as well as hot lamination.

This station handles the extrusion and calendering of the product mass. To ensure that the material web is produced without interruption, a twin barrel emptying system feeds the extruder (inline extrusion). The highly precise calender subsequently provides the right web thickness.

Machine for cutting various materials

Cutting of the final product contour

Optima rotary cutting stations universally cut different materials such as films, foams, nonwovens or SAP (superabsorbent polymer). Thanks to zero cutting, you can make the best possible use of your material. Format changeover takes place in record time, as drawers simplify the exchange of cutting tools.

Plant sorts the products into boxes by Pick & Place

Product handling with Pick & Place

The finished stoma products are stacked fully automatically and placed in boxes for intermediate storage. The Pick & Place System ensures gentle handling.

Inspection system checks wound dressings

Product inspection

Trust is good, inspection is better: Inspection systems check every stoma product in terms of cleanliness, size, alignment and print image. Camera systems are used, which also perform control tasks. They also monitor the position of the cutting station, or even the synchronization of the dosing and compression station.
