Sonobond Ultrasonics’ Machinery Creates Barrier Seams That Satisfy Regulatory Requirements for Face Masks, Medical Gowns, And Other Nonwoven Textile Medical Supplies

Our SeamMaster® Ultrasonic Sewing Machine uses a rotary operation to quickly create a strong, reliable seal without glue gaps or stitch holes

West Chester, PA – April 9, 2020 – During the current COVID-19 pandemic, while sufficient supplies of personal protective equipment are critically needed by hospital staff, first responders, and other healthcare providers, Sonobond Ultrasonics’ textile assembly machines can help increase your production speed and create barrier seams that satisfy regulatory requirements.

The Advantages of Ultrasonic Technology

Our machinery uses high-frequency ultrasonic waves to produce sealed edges and secure barrier seams. Strong, reliable bonds are created without stitch holes, glue gaps, fraying or unraveling; no thread or other consumables are required.

What type of face masks and medical supplies can our equipment assemble?

Most commonly used face masks can be wholly or partially assembled using our SeamMaster® Ultrasonic Sewing Machine or a combination of the SeamMaster® and our PlungeBonder™ Ultrasonic Spot-Weld Bonder. Disposable medical gowns and shoe covers, lint-free wound dressings, pillow and mattress covers, and pouches for sterilizing and storing medical instruments are some of the typical products assembled with our machines.

How do we ensure that our equipment will suit different customer applications?

We offer no-charge, no-obligation textile bonding viability tests to produce sample assemblies using your own nonwoven or synthetic materials. This allows you to evaluate the results and confirm the quality of our process before placing an order.

Is Sonobond continuing to make machines even as other businesses are shutting down to combat the spread of COVID-19?

Yes. Sonobond has been granted a waiver from our state’s COVID-19 Orders to continue our critical role in providing equipment that assembles life-sustaining medical supplies. However, due to high demand and our adherence to CDC mitigation measures to protect our staff and the community, we appreciate your understanding if your order is not filled as quickly as usual.
