PCMC offers full line of diaper machines.

Paper Converting Machine Company offers a full line of baby and adult diaper machines to meet the needs of today's market. The new Series 530 Diaper Machine, advanced drum former, high compression packaging station, automatic cutoff and flying splice unwinds, and the barrier leg cuff feature are all part of PCMC's full complement of converting machinery.

New Series 530 Diaper Machine with Drum Forming System

The new Series 530 Diaper Machine has been engineered with over 80 design improvements to offer increased production speed and flexibility, as well as simplified operation and maintenance. It is available with the advanced drum forming system, termed Model 530-D. This system provides an effective means to produce specially contoured and shaped fluff pads, which cannot be done efficiently on the alternate flat wire forming system. The drum forming system includes a newly designed hammermill, which results in better quality fluff and higher pad integrity.

Barrier Leg Cuff Now in Demand

The barrier leg cuff (BLC) feature, also known as the standing leg cuff, is an important new development which greatly improves diaper containment.

It is predicted that nearly all private label producers will soon add this marketable feature to the diapers they manufacture. PCMC can provide a barrier leg cuff system, tailored to the design requirements of existing or new machines.

New High Compression Packaging Station

PCMC has responded to the needs of the marketplace with the introduction of a new high compression packaging station. Grant Craig, PCMC Sales Manager for Disposables Machinery, explains: "High compression diaper packaging substantially reduces shelf space requirements, packaging materials and shipping costs. The new PCMC compression station can be added to new or existing baby or adult diaper machines. This high capacity unit can reduce diaper stacks up to one half (50%) of their original machine-made volume. Compressed stacks are accumulated to produce dual tandem or quadpacks and then transferred through loading horns for manual or automatic bagging. This new system offers diaper manufacturers increased efficiency and cost savings."

New Feature Saves Operator Time

Automatic cutoff and flying splice unwinds are now available for use with poly, nonwoven and tissue parent rolls. The automatic transfer eliminates the need for operator attention by automatically cutting off the operating web and splicing in the standby parent roll. The process is activated in one of three ways: 1) by sensing the expiring tail; 2) by sensing a preset minimum roll diameter which then activates the automatic web cutoff and splicing system; or 3) by manually triggering the cutoff and transfer process anywhere within the operating roll, as may be required to cull out a troublesome or off-quality roll.

Adult Diaper Machine Meets Needs of Expanding Market

PCMC's Model 610 Adult Diaper Machine is designed to provide the added production flexibility and efficiency required by the rapidly expanding adult incontinence market. The Model 610 now includes change over capability to produce all sizes of adult briefs - in addition to underpads and chair pads.
