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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The finished stoma products are stacked fully automatically and placed in boxes for intermediate storage. The Pick & Place System ensures gentle handling.
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.
Our systems are designed for maximum speed and minimal product loss to help you get the most out of your stoma products.
Whether as a one-layer or two-layer hydrocolloid design: With a production plant from Optima, you combine all the relevant process steps into one machine. To ensure you get the most out of your production, we develop systems for maximum speed and minimal product loss. In parallel to this, inline inspections and audit trail functions guarantee 100% product safety.
