New Doyen Packaging Unit Fits Like a Glove

Hand cuffing and hand placing of gloves into the shadow box of Doyen Medipharm’s glove packaging units is a thing of the past. The process was labor intensive and relied on the operator placing the gloves accurately. The company’s new automatic glove-placing unit allows operators to load surgical gloves onto mandrels. The mandrels are carried through a dedicated feed system where the gloves are reoriented and presented to a placing station. The placing station removes the gloves from the mandrels and automatically presents them in the correct position on the packaging web.
According to the company, the unit reduces labor by up to 50%. It also improves the accuracy and consistency of the glove cuffing and improves placement accuracy by a factor of at least two. The company recently supplied a confidential customer in Malaysia with a second automatic glove-placing unit.
