Product highlights

  • 60 bags per minute
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Long lifetime of tooling
  • Low maintenance


The ACE 600 will produce and pack cotton pads of round, square or oval shapes. The ACE 600 replaces up to four manual systems and two machines can be operated by one operator.

The cotton web is automatically inserted in the ACE cotton pad production machine with the unwinder unit. The punch unit with dies, punches the pads out the cotton web in nice stacks into a product carrier. A swift change-over to a large variety of pad shapes by switching product related parts ensures a highly flexible production level. Every format punching tooling such round, oval or square is available in a stitch and non-stitch version.

The punched cotton pads are automatically pushed out of the product carriers in bags when the product carriers are full. The numbers of cotton pads depends on the size of the bag and the programmed amount of desired pads per bag. The bag magazine turns after the bags are filled, enabling a new row of bags ready to be filled. The full bags turn to the sealing unit. After the bags are sealed, a conveyor belt transports the bags out the machine for further processing. The web that is left-over from the punching can be recycled.

The bag magazine consists of three stations with bags to be filled, enabling the ACE machine to fill, seal and at the same time get an operator to refill a station with empty bags.

To scale up production, VMI developed the ACE 600 to process bigger web widths up to 600 millimeters. Resulting in the lowest cost per bags of cotton pads available today, the machine will considerably raise your productivity. The long lifetime of tooling can be added to that which results in a low cost of ownership.
