X-ray: soon easier to buy on the French market
We are happy to announce, that the Inwatec X-ray system is now a huge step closer to the French customers, and we are now taking orders for expected delivery in Q2 2018.
“Syringes, scalpels, scissors, pens, markers, name tags – and other items that could either harm the operator or damage the garments, courses the same problem in France as in the rest of the world. We are delighted that we soon can help solving these issues in France with our X-Ray-machine,” Inwatec Project Engineer Raphaël Baetens tells.
The French regulations on the X-ray equipment demand that the operator passes a thorough test on safety procedures and radiation, and to remove that hurdle for our customers; Raphaël Baetens has completed the training, and he has now received the certificate that proves he is allowed to work with and install x-ray equipment in France.
The next step is to finalise the papers to have the exemption of authorisation and declaration that mean that French owners of the machine will NOT need to have their employees to take the courses.
“We met a lot of interest from the French hospital laundry industry who saw the machine in action at the recent JetExpo 2017 in Paris, and we look forward to starting work on these projects with our French business partners,” Raphaël Baetens continues.
“The X-ray system is CE-marked and approved for the European market. It has proven its worth for years in both European and Asian laundries, so we are pleased, that we have come so far in the process of getting the machines approved for the French market too.”
