Other machines suitable for home-based business from Zhauns include a candle-making machine, a plastic bag-manufacturing machine, a hot dog trolley; a sugar can juice extractor and a T-shirt printing machine.
The company is looking for distributors for all its machines in Africa and elsewhere. The diaper-manufacturing machine produces nappies at a cost of less than 10USc each. This compares favourably with the price of branded diapers of $2 per unit.
The machine costs about $5,800, which includes a free mini-production kit, installation and training. Production kits consisting of all the necessary raw material are available from Zhauns – but the raw material is also available from local suppliers.
Only a limited number of machines per area are supplied in South Africa, according to Zhaun Ahmed of Zhauns. Machines are also exported to Namibia, Botswana and Mozambique. Free installation and training also apply to neighbouring states; maintenance back-up is available there too.
However, maintenance is minimal, and can generally be done by the owner of the machine, according to Ahmed.
The diaper machine can also produce sanitary towels and adult diapers, at a similar production rate.
A new introduction from Zhauns is ‘a modern and hygienic hot dog trolley’. It is gas-operated and costs about $1,400, including cylinder. It consists of a warming tray for the sausages and containers for sauces and rolls.
Zhauns candle making machine has a production capacity of 1,600 candles of simple design per hour.
Any design moulds can be used. The cost of about $5,500 includes two free moulds.
The plastic bag-manufacturing machine also costs $5,500. It uses polyethylene of different colours and shapes to make bags up to 60cm wide.
The sugar cane juice extractor is suitable for installation in supermarkets, shopping centres, kiosks and entertainment venues. 1kg of cane produces about 0.5 litres of juice. When mixed with lime and ice, this makes a healthy and invigorating drink, according to Ahmed. The extractor can produce up to 10 litres of juice per hour. The cost of this machine is about $2,600.
The T-shirt printing machine also costs about $2,600. Designs are available from Zhauns and other stockists. The operating speed depends completely on the design.
