High Speed Medical Filter Element Production.

Producing 1 filter element every two seconds, this machine uses blade pleating technology to create very crisp pleats. Spacing of the pleats is then achieved using mini-pleat adhesive application. Each element is then cut to the correct size and 100% vision inspected with any elements not meeting a very tight tolerance being rejected.
