The textile care industry continues to be subject to price and competitive pressuresin nearly all areas with a parallel increase in costs for personnel, textiles and energy.
Increasing productivity, reducing operating costs by maintaining consistently highquality and availability are therefore the needs of the moment.
At the Texcare 2012 KANNEGIESSER wants to provide information, put forwardideas and demonstrate concrete examples of successful reconstructions, step-bystepmodernisation and efficiency enhancement of the entire business process.
Priority setting during the integration of the various technology sectors should befacilitated and for this purpose a cross-section through all areas of modern machinetechnology will be displayed as well as examples of logistics, data and informationmanagement, along with intelligent transport and sorting technology and efficientresource management (energy and water).
Further development and significant progress in the machine technology field havebeen put into practice in all divisions: the continuous batch washers of thePowerTrans series have been optimised with an unprecedented consistencyregarding performance, flexibility and operating costs.
In the flatwork division new logistic contexts can be offered, the feeding technologyhas been further perfected and on top of this performance, energy consumption,operational safety and finishing quality of the ironing process have been optimised.
Further leaps in development in terms of energy efficiency have been made in waterextraction and drying technologies but also the tunnelfinishers have been included inthe energy management systematics.
