Protection perfection at Screenworks

Suffolk-based screen print company Screenworks has paid tribute to the impact that its new Beck Serienpacker has had on business, revealing that the machine has played a big part in its production of reusable face masks.

Demand for face masks is higher than ever in the UK, given the new regulations related to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19), with masks now mandatory in all shops and on public transport.

Screenworks’ Bumpaa Anti-Viral facemask and snood is treated with ‘ViralOff technology’, which leads to a 99% reduction of viruses in a textile or material over two hours.

In response to high demand for masks, Screenworks took on a Beck Serienpacker S1750XJ from Friedheim International, a machine that is able to manage over 1,800 items per hour.

After it has finished work on the masks, Screenworks plans to add it to the end of its automated folding line for use on other projects.

Alan Porter, operations director at Screenworks, comments: “We have seen fast-paced, high demand for our Bumpaa masks and snoods since their launch.

“The Beck machine has played a great part in facilitating this demand. It has helped us reduce packaging time, to ensure orders are met on time, thus supporting significant output of these important products during this critical period.”
