At the end of April 2018, Lapauw organized its traditional Dealer Days, followed by the Open House Days. For the dealers, the customers and also for us, it was an exceptional event, since we presented our complete Tunnel Washing Solutions for the first time ever.
Both our showrooms, with a total surface of 950 m², were transformed to a complete laundry set-up including a TRANSFLEX ECO 13 compartment, 60 kg tunnel, a high pressure press, a shuttle conveyor and the newest steam heated Twin-dryer.
The tunnel was loaded by a conveyor system and integrated in the system was a C1206F1V toploader, all in operation.
The washing area was supplemented with a 200 kg, 3 compartment washer, a trolley washer and a cleanroom set-up with a 110 kg Mediwave washer and a Medistream dryer.
In the second hall, a full operational ironing line including a 4-station feeder, the best performing 2 roll 1200 gas heated ironer in the market, our IRONMAX, and the redesigned Unifold, were handling the linen that was washed in the TRANSFLEX tunnel. Next to the line was the all new 2 roll IRONMAX steam heated, with all the same advantages as the gas heated version.
Beside the new IRONMAX steam, we also introduced the bigger brother of the IRONPRO 500: the IRONPRO 600. The range will be completed with the IRONPRO 800 in the 4th quarter of 2018. All IRONPRO machines are available in gas and electric heating. Steam versions of the 600 and 800 will be available in the first half of 2019.
To handle the garments, we installed a Hot STREAM system with feeding station, unloading station and folder for a total capacity of 350 pieces/hour, wet or dry.
Last but not least, our FOLDPRO was installed to fold and sort the towels that came from the Twin-dryers.
Our dealers from all over the world, from South Korea to Colombia, came to join the training sessions organized during the Dealer Days. These training sessions were followed up with open conversations and interactive debates.
The Open House Days attracted many customers from Belgium, Europe and beyond, who where enthusiastic to see the new developments made by Lapauw.
