Web processing for medical and skin care products

Patient and user-friendly wound care products suited for acute or chronic, non-healing wounds or sores continue to evolve. In addition to classic wound dressings with a great diversity of formats, Harro Höfliger’s modular machine concepts allow the flexible production and packaging of advanced wound care systems that feature complex structures. Included among them are foams, hydrocolloids, hydrogels and alginates as well as antimicrobial dressings for state-of-the-art wound management.
Dressings can also be fitted with „smart“ onboard technology for added value. All processes for manufacturing wound dressings, as well as skin care products such as corn plasters and heel care patches, can be scaled from laboratory to high-performance machinery.

Our expertise

Web material handling

In the manufacturing of multi-layer products, what is essential is to be fully knowledgeable of the properties and behavior of the individual web materials. With our many years of experience we offer individual solutions using modular technologies, unique in their combination and based on extensive PoP.

Medical products

In addition to traditional wound care products, we are leaders in the manufacturing of modern wound care systems that feature complex structures. Included among them, for example, are foams, hydrocolloids, hydrogels and alginates as well as antimicrobial wound dressing.

On-board technology

Wound care systems with additional benefits: Our flexible, easily adaptable processes also make it possible to provide wound dressings with digital on-board technology. These "smart" high-tech products can monitor wound healing and send data to medical staff.


  • Blister patches – production and packaging

    Production of blister patches for the heel, followed by packaging in containers and cartoning.

  • Corn removal patches – production and packaging

    Production of corn removal patches plus packaging in sealed bags and folding boxes.

  • Reservoir patches – production and packaging

    Manufacturing of reservoir patches: Active ingredient gel is dosed onto a carrier film.

  • Wound dressing – production and sterile packaging

    The behavior of the different web materials must be taken into account in the production of wound dressing.

  • Foam patches – manufacturing

    Foam patches for wound treatment are transferred from the dry tunnel and cut to the exact size.

Machines and categories


Smart patches equipped with on board technology

Mobile medical monitoring by means of a smart device: Dressings with small sensors and wireless technology are comfortable to wear and accurately record patients' data.
