About Our Systems
Forward Technology has developed automated production systems
for formed respirators and disposable face masks, capable
of quickly producing mass quantities for use across multiple
Our production systems are ideal for mid to large size companies
looking to make their own masks to comply with government
mandates and provide additional protection for their employees.
The systems are also ideal for government centers that provide
masks for employees and visitors.
The process is highly-efficient with a small footprint, allowing
companies to seamlessly install the equipment in existing
infrastructure without disrupting existing process flows. Each
automation system contains Mecasonic Ultrasonic generators and
components, making for a fully-integrated automation line.

Formed Respirator System
Our Formed Respirator System produces 500+ masks per hour and can accept a wide range of filter medias, an optional fourth roll, and web feed for additional filtering or graphic layers. One operator can keep the equipment fully functional by loading and unloading the rotary based ultrasonic welding station and changing material rolls as necessary. It features a completely integrated controls package that allows complete system control from one central HMI. The respirator’s shape and strap options may be customized to meet each customer’s individual requirements.
*Please note that several items, stations, and features are not shown in system images above for clarity purposes.
Disposable Face Mask System
Our Disposable Face Mask System is capable of producing 1 mask every 4-6 seconds, which equates to over 650 masks per hour. An optional second strapping system may be added to further increase throughput. The equipment can accept a wide range of filter medias, an optional fourth roll, and web feed for additional filtering or graphic layers. This is a fully-automated system with no operator intervention required except for material roll change out and final packaging of completed product. It features a completely integrated controls package that allows complete system control from one central HMI.
