Specialty Fabrics Review December 2019 - 24

Manufacturing 4.0 and
IoT are not fads, and they
are going forward and
here to stay.
KENT LAMMERS

The film and fabric welding offered
at Polo produces medical drainage and
collection bags; ostomy, nephrostomy,
and colostomy bags; laparoscopic surgery
specimen collection bags; and compression
sleeves and cuffs. Other products include
passenger and crew oxygen bag assemblies,
CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological
and nuclear) safety hood assemblies, and
inflatable air bladders and cushions using
vinyl, urethane, EVA and olefin films.
Polo uses fabric and film sealing processes,
including impulse sealing, ultrasonic
and thermo-contact sealing, and RF
(radio frequency) sealing, also known
as High Frequency (HF) welding or
Dielectric welding.
Polo's thermoforming services are
utilized in making AED (automated
external defibrillator) and other

medical equipment carrying cases, EVA
(ethylene vinyl acetate) cases, weapons
or instrument holsters, shoulder and
lumbar support pad assemblies, device
pouches, and compartment liners
and dividers for auto interiors and
motorcycle luggage compartments.
SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
In the interest of partnerships, Polo offers
supply chain management that can tackle
all the steps from product concepting
through fulfillment. Offerings include
product design, engineering and product
development, along with materials
sourcing and supplier management of
manufacturing processes. Polo also handles
global sourcing and procurement of raw
materials, inhouse testing, and U.S. and
international logistics management.

How has IFAI helped
your business?
Being a member
of IFAI has many
benefits, including increased
engagement in the industry,
partnership opportunities and
staying abreast of trending
legislative and manufacturing
initiatives. IFAI buyer's guides
also hold a lot of value
with Polo executives.
IFAI shot training videos at a
Polo production site, which has
turned out to be of great benefit
to employees. We're trying to
have the video display on the
production floor so people can go
back and replay critical steps in the
manufacturing process. Employees
can see living video documentation
instead of reading instructions.

In the interest of partnerships, Polo CEO and president Kent Lammers and his team offer supply
chain management that can tackle all the steps from product concepting through fulfillment.
Offerings include product design, engineering and product development along with materials
sourcing and supplier management of manufacturing processes.
