– Highly Automated & Labor-free
You may already get to know many different types of wet wipes in the market: baby wipes, makeup removal wipes, disinfectant wipes, sanitizing wipes, moist toilet wipes etc.
However, if you search a wet wipes machine by its applications, chances are you are getting nowhere.
Varied wet wipes product names are in fact a matter of formulation that can be processed on the same wet wipes production line.
In general, Wet wipes machines can be categorized into 4 types by its Output Products:
By Output Products
Single Sachet Wet Wipes Machine
Suitable to make Individually Wrapped Wet Wipes
Cross-fold Pocket Wipes Machine
Suitable to make on-the-go pocket sized wipes in a pack of 5-40 sheets
Flow Pack Wet Wipes Machine
Suitable to make soft pack wipes in a big pouch of 20-120 sheets
Canister Wet Wipes Machine
Suitable to make big pouch wipes in a pack of 20-120 sheets
Wet wipes machines can also be classified in terms of their work flow into semi-automated wet wipes machine /fully automated wet wipes machine/ end-of-the-line packaging machines.
By Work Flow (Automation Level)
Wet wipes packaging machine (Without wet wipes making machine)
Wet wipes making machine (without wet wipes packaging machine)
Complete Wet wipes production line
（Wet wipes making machine +Wet wipes packaging machine)
End-of-the-line packaging machine

What is the general wet wipes manufacturing process?
( How are wet wipes made?）
–What are the wet wipes machines required for each production process?
A complete wet wipes manufacturing process entails the following 4 processes：
(1) Wet wipes converting process
Non-woven roll unwinding → online slitting → tissue folding → wetting → tissue stacking into piles
(2) Wet wipes packaging process
Laminates packaging film roll unwinding → (hole) die cutting → re-sealable sticker labeling → bag forming→ sealing → output product
(3) Wet wipes lid application process
labeling on lid →gluing →lid pasting
(4) End-of-the-line packaging process
Case packing→ palletizing
*Each process is completed on an individual equipment with varied numbers of manpower required.
No. of operators required
Total No. of labors required for a complete production

How many labors do we need for a wet wipes machine?
In light of varied production process, we need varied number of workers to manage the whole wet wipes production
Please refer to above chart on Question No.3.
*How much Automation do you need depends on your budget frame, sales volume forecast, capacity requirement, labor cost.
What is the difference between a full-automated wet wipes machine and a semi-automatic wet wipes machine?
Full-automated wet wipes production line:
A typical full-automated wet wipes machine is composite of a wet wipes converting machine and a wet wipes packaging machine.
Packaging is done by machine not manually.
No human intervention throughout the complete process.
(Refer to Question 4 wet wipes work flow illustration, the work flow of a full automated wet wipes machine goes in the following way: process (1)+ process (2))
Nonwoven roll unwinding → online slitting → tissue folding → wetting → tissue stacking into piles → tissue piles transferred to wet wipes packaging machine → Laminates packaging film roll unwinding → (hole) die cutting → re-sealable sticker labeling → bag forming→ sealing → output product
Semi-automated wet wipes machine:
Semi-automated wet wipes machine generally refers to a wet wipes making machine (without packaging machine).
If you buy a wet wipes making machine only, you have to pack wet wipes with pre-made pouches then seal the pouch manually
If you buy a wet wipes packaging machine only, well, you are not able to complete the whole production
Nonwoven roll unwinding → online slitting → tissue folding → wetting → tissue stacking into piles → Tissue Stack picked up by labors– manual packaging ( with pre-made bags) – manual sealing(small sealing machine)- finished product output.
Tissue in a stack form packed into (Pre-made bags)by manual work
Do you produce full-automatic wet wipes machine or semi-automatic wet wipes machine?
Droid makes full-automated wet wipes machines for various applications of premium quality standard only.
Is there one wet wipes machine that can make all types of wet wipes?
There is no one-size-fits-all wet wipes machine.
Can I make baby wipes on a cross fold wet wipes production line?
Generally speaking, baby wipes can be packed both in pocket size (cross folds) for on-the-go application and bulk size (Z/N folds) for household application.
Although Most commonly seen baby wipes in the market are packed in 80s,100s, 120s worldwide, on-the-go baby wipes are also favored by consumers due to its portability.
So, it is not a problem to make baby wipes on the cross-fold wet wipes production line in 20s,25s,30s per bag.
Can I use baby wipes machine to make disinfectant wipes and facial cleaning wipes?
Yes, you can.
All you need is to change the ingredient / formulation for each wet wipes.
But make sure your wet wipes machine has sanitary piping design and quick rinsing system to avoid cross-contamination after change-over of each formulated wipes.
What is the typical structure of an automated wet wipes machine?
