We’ve repurposed our manufacturing equipment to make medical supplies for Southern Nevada hospital workers and first responders. Our company has bought every available spunbond polypropylene rolls of fabric in Philadelphia, and it is heading our way for mass production of surgical masks. We’re dedicated to production 24/7 to help with the shortage.
In an effort to mass produce masks and gowns for the first responders and healthcare providers, we have created a GoFundMe for those who have been reaching out to donate to help with the costs of the supplies and our employees that are making this possible for the State of Nevada. 100% of proceeds go to PPE supplies and helping keep our employees employed. THANK YOU everyone for the overwhelming amount of support and kindness near and far : https://bit.ly/3af7FU5.

The Dual Cutting table gives you a two blade option of Ultrasonic or Pressure cut. The Pressure cut is great for laminated materials; it can cut outdoor screens and can cut both interior and exterior fabrics. By simply turning a switch, the cutter changes blades. No tools necessary!
Ultratab’s Impulse Welding machine can create pockets as well as join fabrics together. The welder was designed for single user operations, which saves both money and time, One of it’s best features is its ability to weld shades wider than the machine.
