The Clean Show in the USA is one of the largest single trade shows for the laundry and dry cleaning industry and is held every two years. This year, the show was held in Las Vegas and drew manufacturers and industry experts from all over the world.
The Kannegiesser booth was located in a prime location next to registration and main show entrance. With a wealth of knowledgeable and well prepared staff, augmented by an expert demonstration team from the company’s headquarters in Germany, the Kannegiesser exhibit was yet again a leading attraction for thousands of visitor throughout the Clean Show event.
Conveniently located throughout the 4,500 square foot booth, a wide selection of state-of-the-art washroom, flatwork and feeding equipment clearly confirmed Kannegiesser as “The Leader in Laundry Technology”. Marking its North American debut, the Clipmaster EMX high speed corner-less spreader-feeder was demonstrated in combination with the FoldMaster CFM.II large-piece folder. Also in continuous demonstration was a combination ironer line consisting of a CSP batch-separation device, a PickUp PU12 which enables a continuous and ergonomically correct supply of individual pieces, the combination 4 station feeding machine Combifeed EMQ and the flatwork folding machine FoldMaster SFM.II, processing high quality table linen in a high speed environment. Additionally, the garment folding robot model FA-X 900 made its debut, handling a wide variety of garments and creating enormous interest. The flatwork ironer model HPM with padded roll and a scale model of the PowerDry airflow-technology initiated discussions about Kannegiesser technical advantages. A PowerTrans batch washer and wide-format PowerPress PP13 completed the full range of Kannegiesser equipment.
In addition to the live demonstration of Kannegiesser equipment, several new information technologies were successfully introduced: Apple iPads loaded with equipment demonstration videos and technical data afforded an entirely new level of interactivity for visitors, while QR codes accompanied each machine on exhibit, allowing visitors to use their smart devices and phones to scan and view online details about the equipment and easily collect contact information.
The results of Clean Show 2011 left visitors and the Kannegiesser team with a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Once again solid preparation, team work and an innovative product line showed visitors why Kannegiesser is the “The Leader in Laundry Technology”.
