Bandages, from small band-aids to gauze, often require a sterile packaging environment. Keeping the bandages safe and sterile is vital due to their usage to treat open wounds. Decreasing the risk of contamination is a top priority. Most companies have turned to automation to decrease the amount of human contact and reduce the risk of contamination in the necessary sterile environments. The most common application when packaging bandages is feeding batches of bandages into boxes. Do you have the right equipment to package your products safely?
