How are medical gloves manufactured?
Nitrile examination gloves and latex surgical gloves are manufactured using a similar manufacturing method. Often they will be manufactured on the same glove making machine, with changes being made to the raw materials, line speed, and dwell time and oven temperatures. Hand shaped ceramic formers are washed in cleaning tanks which removes residue and contaminating particles that could negatively impact the quality of the gloves. Next the formers are dipped in a coagulant liquid which coats the formers in calcium nitrate. This causes a thin layer of the raw material to aggregate on the former. The next stage is to dip the former in the latex or nitrile depending on the glove type you are manufacturing. The nitrile or latex will form a thin layer on the former creating your nitrile examination glove or latex surgical glove. The formers are then dried to remove moisture in the drying oven and then cured at a high temperature in the curing oven. The final stage in the glove production process is the stripping stage where an automatic glove stripping machine will remove the gloves from the former, and an automated packing machine will pack the gloves.
Why is now a great time to enter the glove market?
The demand for nitrile examination gloves and latex surgical gloves is continuing to rise, and the since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and the surge in the demand this rise is set to continue at a high level for considerable time.
The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the worlds over dependence on glove production from a single region, primarily South East Asia. As a result healthcare providers and governments are looking for alternative supply chain routes to diversify their suppliers and minimise risk.
Traditionally glove manufacturing involved considerable amounts of labour, but now the technology is now available to fully automate the process, in particular the glove stripping and packing stage. This presents a huge opportunity for companies to enter the glove without the burden of high labour costs, particularly in Western countries.
The majority of the world’s gloves are manufactured in Malaysia, with Thailand and China manufacturing
Why you should work with glove manufacturing experts?
Glove manufacturing is a highly technical and advanced engineering field. It brings together technology within the fields of mechanical engineering, automation and controls, process engineering, chemistry and chemical engineering.
Working with glove manufacturing experts is paramount to the success of your project. The intuitive knowledge that is required when setting up and operating a glove making machine can make or break a project.
