On this year’s ExpoDetergo which was held in Milan and mainly determined by, from our perspective, more and more internationalized visitors, we can report a very well frequented and successful demonstration of “the entire world of laundry technology“.
One of the main emphases for the Italian market was the flatwork processing with different highlights in this area of production. The impressive new two station corner-less feeding machine ClipMaster EMX for high capacity feeding of sheets (up to 1.200 sheets/h) was presented under regular demonstration and always brought in the crowds. Also presented under regular demonstration was the combination feeding machine Combifeed EMT together with the flatwork folder SFM II including a newly developed cross-folding section for higher availability. From special interest to the Italian market was the new multilane small piece folder KFS which can stack folded and unfolded items. This machine was presented in combination with an automatic stack transport/linen tracking system and caught a lot of attention of the visitors. Also integrated into the linen tracking was the newly invented combination drywork folding machine AFM-BR which is used for high quality applications of 4-5 star hotels and can process towels with auto-grading as well as bath robes and can be equipped with up to 4 stackers. A crowd puller located in the middle of the booth was also the impressive looking stainless-steel heating band. This heating band is installed in the Kannegiesser HighPower ironer series which are available in gas- as well as steam version. Visitors interested in the washing part of a laundry have had the opportunity to examine the new washer extractor series FavoritPlus with its special features of Jet-rising and ScaletronPLUS. This series was especially designed for higher output and lower media consumption. The batch washing system PowerTrans together with the single stage press PowerPress which stand for maximum availability, minimum maintenance as well as excellent textile care and washing quality were also shown on the booth. For the processing of garments the visitors had the opportunity to watch the folding robot FA-X under regular demonstration.
The Expo Detergo was a good platform for us to strengthen existing customer relations as well as establishing new ones with partners all over the world.
