Swab packing machine is notable for its easy to understand operating interface and high production rate. What makes the packaging equipment achieve the efficient performance are its interconnected parts that work as one system.

Let’s look at the key swab packaging machine components that will ensure smooth operation of the equipment.

PLC Controller

Programmable logic controller enables you to control the swab packing machine from one central location. This industrial digital computer system enables you to control all the production processes and parameter.

Touch Screen Control Panel

The touch screen HMI allows you to control the packaging parameters. Some of the process variables you can control include temperature and speed of the swab packing machine. This intelligent micro-computer facilitates convenient, quick and accurate swap packaging process.

Film Handling System

Swab packing machine has an integrated material handling mechanism that feeds film used for packaging. Most film handling systems are compatible with all film types.

Conveyor System

The conveyor system enables quick and safe transportation of the cotton swabs from one point to another. Most packaging machines have stainless steel conveyor panels to ensure hygienic handling of items.

Sealing Assembly

Here is where the swab packing machine seals the packages. The sealing assembly gives a long continuous vertical or horizontal seal. You can choose between pneumatic sealers and heat sealers depending on the packaging material.


Automatic swab packing machine come also fitted with a microprocessor. This device assists in accurate counting of swabs during packaging.

PID Temperature Controller

PID temperature controller is a device that the machine uses to control temperature. A temperature sensor in the instrument sends signals to a control element. As a result, the element controls the temperature within the set limits.

Photoelectric Sensors

Photoelectric sensors are also called photo eyes. They emit a light beam that helps in detecting the presence or absence of cotton swabs on the machine.

Package Labeler

Some swab packing machine come fitted with a product labeling device. The labeler can either be an inkjet printer or thermal coder.

These optional devices helps you in tracking and printing the batch number, date of production, and manufacturer name among other information.

How Swab Packaging Machine Work

As we have already explained, the primary application of swab packing machine is to package cotton swabs. It is a fast, precise, affordable, and adjustable solution that automatically improves productivity and profitability.

Therefore, it is important to understand the step-by-step process of how swab packaging machine works.

Step 1: Feeding Packaging Material

You place the packaging material in the film handling assembly. Typically, swab packaging machine uses a film roll wound around a core known as rollstock.

Step 2: Stretching of Film

The rollers of film handling system pulls the film off the rollstock and stretches it to the required tension. Both the bottom and top materials get stretched in readiness for swab placement.

Step 3: Optional Printing

If necessary, you can integrate a printer device for printing codes, dates, and graphics among other details on the swab packages.

Step 4: Swab Feeding

Next, you can manually or automatically introduce the swabs into the. The conveyor system then transfers and places the cotton swabs onto the stretched film.

A pair of grippers on the conveyor holds the swabs as the machine passes them from one station to another. Also, there are photoelectric sensors station on either side of the conveyor system to ensure that each gripper has a cotton swab.

Step 4: Heat Sealing

First, the sealing assembly applies bottom and top seals to each cotton swab pack. After that, a horizontal sealing mechanism seals both margins of the film as it moves to the cutting system.

The sealing mechanism applies uniform heating due to presence of an automatic temperature controller.

Step 5: Automatic Cutting of Swab Packs

This is the final step in the operation of swab packing machine. Here is where the cutting mechanism cuts the swab packs into individual packages.

After cutting, the system discharges the packs onto another conveyor for secondary packaging process.

Types of Sterilization Used in Swab Packing Machine

Different types of cotton swab

Different types of cotton swab

Sterile swabs are safe from virus, bacteria or any other living microbes. Therefore, cotton swabs need to undergo thorough sterilization process. This is because swab sterilization prevents contamination and infection.

For that matter, let’s look at the best sterilization methods you should apply to ensure aseptic swab packaging process.

Ethylene Oxide Gas (ETO) Sterilization

ETO sterilization is a low temperature gaseous procedure broadly applied to sterilize medical products including swabs. Using vacuum-based process, ethylene oxide gas penetrates the swab packs surface and sterilize them efficiently.

Also, being a low temperature sterilization technique makes it compatible with swab packing machines.

Gamma Irradiation Sterilization

Gamma rays are a kind of electromagnetic radiation similar to x-rays though with higher energy. The rays penetrate through plastics and eliminate bacteria by splitting the covalent bonds of their DNA. This is the best method for swab sterilization because gamma radiation is highly penetrating.

Autoclaves Sterilization

In autoclave sterilization, the device blasts cotton swabs with hot steam to kill microorganisms and germs. This sterilization method uses pressure and steam to raise the temperature between 121-132 degrees Celsius. Basically, autoclaves function is a similar way as pressure cookers.

Production Capacity of Swab Packing Machine

The production rate of swab packaging machines ranges from 200-2500 pieces/minute. But, high-speed designs can produces up to 3000 pieces per minutes. You can adjust the production rate according to your requirements.

Integrating Swab Packing Machine in Existing Production Line
