Integrated laundry IT system for statistical analysis
For all kinds of stacked laundry items, e.g. linen, towels
Enhance processes on the clean side
Directly integrated with the Jenway transport and sorting system, Inwatec’s storage system for stacked laundry enables a further increase in the level of automation on the clean side of the laundry. The conveyor belts and cranes of the storage system receive the stacks fully automatically and sort them according to type to a storage position. This means that time-consuming manual trolley handling can be replaced before the tours are actually packed.
We can design the system according to your laundry’s needs.
Choose one of two different commissioning options for the GREIT stack storage.
The standard configuration of the Inwatec stack storage is designed for manual commissioning. With the manual commissioning layout, the crane continually delivers and re-stocks the different stacked products to the operator station. Like that, the operator has direct access to all product types on fixed positions on the station to be able to efficiently pack tours for the laundry’s customers. This system is most suitable for lower product variety.
Automatic Route commissioning
The second configuration of the stack storage supports a higher product variety as it enables automated route packing. This automatic route commissioning system receives information about all planned tours from the laundry system. To then initiate packing a specific tour, the crane only loads the respectively needed tyoe and quantity of the product stacks onto conveyor belts. Those conveyor belts transport the stacks to packing stations where one or more operators can pack and prepare the customer’s trolleys.
The system is equipped with advanced servo-controls for a fast and efficient positioning of the stacked laundry articles.
The stack storage system has a modular design and can be extended to fit the individuals needs of your laundry.
By replacing time-consuming manual trolley handling with an automated solution, you can increase the speed.
