PCMC adds virus-killing wet wipes machines Rx200 and Mako Clipper to nonwovens lineup
Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC) has announced that its wet wipes folding machines the Rx200 and Mako Clipper are now available with high-content alcohol, measuring as much as 70%.
Previously, PCMC wet wipes machines operated with less than 20% alcohol, producing disinfectant wipes for industrial, automotive, personal and home use. However, the pandemic has created a spike in demand for sanitising wipes that contain at least 70% alcohol, a key component in killing or deactivating viruses.
To help manufacturers meet the increased demand, PCMC redesigned its Rx200 and Mako Clipper to safely operate with high-content alcohol. 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.
"We are proud to offer new solutions for our customers that will ultimately put more sanitising wipes in homes and offices around the world," says 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 sanitising wet wipes and helps keep operators safe."
