Our Pallet Design
The head frame consists of three layers laminated together. The middle layer is rubber. Because of the small size of the printing area, we found that the head frame is very strong and has no need for a flange. We have also eliminated the spring-turnbuckle assembly. We lean the head frame 10 degrees past 90 to keep it from falling down. For finishing, there is no powder coating. We tumble the parts that can be tumbled, and use various sanders on the head frame. Everything is smooth and pretty!
This design has minimized manufacturing and assembly times considerably. It is something that we can make custom versions of very fast and cost effectively. These masks will cover almost every face mask being produced.
