Modern medical and hygiene products ensure a higher quality of life from youth into old age. An item which looks like a simple diaper or compress, quickly turns out to be a rather complex structure made from a large number of materials, each fulfilling specific tasks, which must be joined reliably during the production process.

For incontinence hygiene products, for example, the belt configuration options are accordingly varied, coating on one or both sides, elastic or transversally rigid and abrasion resistant. For surgical dressing products, belts must also undergo high-quality processing to make them appropriate for cleanroom applications.
