Check the solution we offered to Greece customer, introduced to Prime Minister of Greece.
Mr. Costas (Our Customer)
So, this is the mask production line. Everything happened very quickly. I had an amazing experience; after all the years I’ve been working, the customs were waiting for us to close up. Imagine, the airplane landed on 5 o’ clock, the machine was cleared at customs that same day, the truck was waiting, it arrived to Xanthi at 8:30 in the morning, and at 1 or 2 in the evening, I was sent a video where the machine was working already. Things I’ve seen for the first time, very interesting, but what’s the most important?
That all this gives us courage, gives amazing strength to our people, …
Mr. Mitsotakis (Prime Minister of Greece)
Good. I want to thank you all for your amazing work. I’m glad that you’re creating an ecosystem in Greece of verticalized production of protective equipment. I’d be glad to visit your installation in Larissa and you, Thrace Plastics, in Xanthi. I’m wishing you success and congratulations again.
Why Choose Us? An important fact comparison we hope you be aware of before you make the final decision:
|Choose TESTEX, you choose:||Because we do these:|
|After the you receives the machines, you connect the electricity and compressed air, load the materials, press the start button, you can produce normally without debugging.||Each unit is installed and takes three days to commission. |
Four days of testing (with meltblown cloth) before shipment.
we wish you can avoid:
|Choose others (usually cheap solutions, speculator), you might choose||Because they do:|
|After you get the machines, you have to debug the machines on your place for 12 to 17 days before normal production, you will find the mask bodies is not formed right, the earloops are not welding right, and many things need to be adjusted...|
Machines can not persist running stable, production interruption means low capacity.
|Rush installation with no commission: |
Machines shipped directly after assembled;
Some companies do not even have the non-woven fabric and earloops or nose clips installed to test the machines.
The manufactuers are selling off, so the use of the unqualified spare parts, no warranty can be expected.

Mask manufacturing problem-solving and troubleshooting Q&A
Here we have collected some of the problems we have found when commissioning the mask machine and producing masks, as well as some of the problems from customer feedback and inquiries for solutions.
These problems can be generally categorized into:
- Mask quality is not up to the requirements,
- Mask production volume is not up to the expected requirements, resulting in a very high overall production cost of the mask.
Part 1: Mask Quality Issues Q & A
Q1: The mask bodies are not cut in the middle of the welding area?
A1: Cloth cutter not adjusted to a proper position.
Solution: Try to rotate the cutter control switch to adjust it clockwise or counterclockwise, and then press the “Inch” button to run the machine at a very low speed to check whether the problems solved.
Q2: Mask bodies’ length is not stable, lengths are at the normal range when running in the early period of prodcution, but then shortens and narrows in width when the fabric is running out?
A2: As the diameter of the mask fabric roll becomes smaller, the torque becomes smaller, resulting in additional force acting on the longitudinal side of the fabric, causing stretching, and as the stretch tightens, the mask body is welded and cut, with subsequent retraction of the length in its natural state, resulting in a smaller length.
The basic reason is that the physical properties of nonwoven and meltblown fabrics are not suitable, and the longitudinal elasticity is not within a reasonable range.
Solution: Choose qualified fabric material.
Q3: Horizontal folds and cracks in the mask piece?
A3: In the process of creating 3 creases in the mask piece, the fabric is too brittle due to insufficient lateral elasticity, causing it to break.
Solution: You should validate the raw material quality, choose to buy mask fabric (mainly the meltblown fabric) with the required transverse tension.
Q4: Mask Bodie’s pieces be unevenly hemmed and wrapped?
A4: The raw material roll (usually the inner layer pp nonwoven) is not properly secured and the roll of fabric often wobbles from side to side, resulting in uneven wrapping.
Solution: Check whether the reel is fixed loosely, etc., and ensure that the position of the 3 layers of cloth is correct before folding.
Q5: Inconsistencies in the left and right lengths of mask straps?
A5: For example, the left earloop is often shorter than the right earloop, which is not in the required range, and the short side is elongated due to the extra resistance, and then retracted after welding, resulting in insufficient length.
Solution: Check whether there is additional resistance being applied to the earloop feeding. And buy the earloops with suitable placement.
Q6: Inaccurate welding position of mask earloops, large deviation?
A6: For automatic welding machines: mask bodies’ lengths are not stable, resulting in a large misalignment of the mask piece during welding.
For manual welding machines: in relation to worker proficiency.
Solution: Use an automatic welding machine instead of manual welding machines and solve the problem of question 2 to ensure that the length of the mouthpiece is uniform and that the transverse and longitudinal displacements on the automatic welding track are within the tolerance of deviation.
Part 2: Low Capacity Issues (compared to the expected max. machine capacity)
Q7: One-day production capacity of mask body machine can not meet expectations?
A7: According to our observations and statistics, the main reason is that continuous production time is not as expected. The original design and production of 10 hours, actually only produced more than 8 hours: the refueling time accounts for the main factor, followed by the raw material is not strong enough, will be Torn off, resulting in additional time for cloth refueling.
Solution: Adapt raw material roll with a suitable diameter (too small, increasing the frequency of refueling, too large, not conducive to stable production).
Q8: The output of the automatic earloop welding machine did not meet expectations, more labors needed then expectation (doubled)?
A8: The left and right earloop feeding mechanism often interrupts production. In order to ensure that the final mask earloop length is stable, it is necessary to ensure that the earloop is not subjected to additional tension during the conveying process, i.e. no extra tension applied.
In actual production, due to the earloop production process, earloops are either rolled into a roll or directly packed in plastic bags, which results in: you need two extra workers to smooth the twisted earloops to continue the welding process manually and repeatedly, very time consuming and labors costs added.
Solution: Smooth the earloops under a natural tension-free state. The earloops supplied by us can solve this problem, Minimize manual intervention on the ear strap rope, or you can buy similar earloops which are not heavily twisted.
Only a small part of the various problems in the production of masks are caused by the mask making machines, and most of them are caused by the wrong purchase of raw materials.
These problems can only be better discovered through actual production.
This is also the reason why our mask making machine solution has been evolved, we have improved the equipment, and now to maximize the capacity of our mask making machines, we established server mask material standards aiming to solve the problems you might meet during the actual mask production, to get a smooth mask manufacturing process and eventually produce the qualified masks for medical staff use or daily protection application, you will need materials that meet these two requirements:
1. Meet the quality requirements of the mask standards, such as particle filtration efficiency, bacterial filtration efficiency, breathing Resistance, penetration of synthetic blood (medical masks);
2. Friendly to the mask making machines: material specifications suitable for the optimal production process, no extra interruption, maximize the production time.
