Sorting and packing
Today there are an increasing number of automation solutions and special robots that free employees from the most monotonous and repetitive tasks. This also includes the handling of small textiles. At the Danish laundry company DFD, one of Inwatec’s bag handling and packing systems was recently installed, which is mainly used for their very successful Viima cleaning products.
Manually inspecting the pockets of work clothes is a costly and time-consuming process at many laundries. This was also the case at Victor Vask, which services the Danish island of Bornholm. Therefore director and owner Kenn Ivan Kjellberg did not hesitate when he found an alternative: the X-ray scanner from Inwatec.
Unifirst Corporation, one of North America’s largest workwear and textile service companies, identified the Inwatec mat rolling system as a solution to increase productivity, improve workflow efficiency and enhance safety for team partners.
The new Inwatec setup at Tvätteriet Alingsås includes four robot separators and two x-ray scanners. Focused on reliable foreign item detection, up to 6.000 garments are processed every hour with a minimum of human interaction, leading to an improved workflow at the laundry.

In September 2019, the Laundry Experience Event was attended by many experts from the laundry industry, including Mads Andresen, CEO of Inwatec, who was invited on the first day to give a presentation on the latest automation and robotics solutions for textile management. The event was organized by Vematex, the Dutch organization of laundry suppliers,
“Put simply, Inwatec solves our problems."
"There are many repetitive movements in a laundry, and I have been incredibly happy to lessen these tasks. Our 85 employees are also excited and proud to be in a company investing in modern technology. I do not doubt that the future offers solutions and opportunities that I have never thought about."
Textilservice Liebhardt GmbH&Co.KG invested into an X-ray system
"Apart from helping us emptying the pockets, the setup also sorts the garments into nine different categories to pick the right washing or cleaning process. In that part of the equation, there is no doubt that the machine makes fewer errors than a human would do, and the speed is also higher and with fewer stops than a person could handle."
Fornet included an Inwatec X-Ray scanner as well as RFID based sorting system
“The Inwatec Roll Machine has optimized our production, saving the company for 3 working hours per day, and our staff is very happy, as the machine saves them for a lot of manually and heavy work."
