Recycling solution captures edge trim from face mask manufacturing
The WasteTech All-In-One trim removal system from Danish-based company Lundberg Tech, automatically captures edge trim waste generated during automated facemask production, cuts it into confetti and collects it for recycling or disposal, without interrupting production.
Conveniently installed next to the production line, the WasteTech All-In-One eliminates line stoppages for manual waste handling and removal and allows manufacturers to maximize the capabilities of their automated mask production lines. Unsanitary, unsightly accumulation of edge trim waste on floors or billowing over containers is also eliminated, along with the potential dust hazard.
Proven for manufacturing medical grade surgical masks, civilian facemasks, and other multi-layer, nonwoven personal protective equipment, the WasteTech vacuum waste removal system encompasses the inlet tubes, granulator with silencer, fan ventilator with silencer, air separator, cartridge dust filter, and built-in bag holder, all set within a clean, compact, attractive housing. The trim handling system is offered in five models to suit nearly any type of edge trim, label matrix, or other waste material, and meet nearly any production speed or requirement. The WasteTech All-In-One units are stocked in the company's Newark, Delaware facility and ready for delivery and quick installation.

Although every operation is different, by streamlining the front end of the C&D operation processes with purpose-built technologies, recyclers can tap into new end markets, accommodate higher material volumes, stay ahead of regulatory restrictions, increase recovery rates and add commodity revenue, while decreasing labor and other costs.
