Continental debuts folding & stacking equipment
Oshkosh, Wis.–Continental Girbau Inc. recently introduced
a full complement of linen handling equipment, including the FL-LITE multi-lane
flatwork folder, the AP-LITE drop stacker, and the FT-LITE drywork folder. Thanks
to these new linen handling products, higher-volume laundry facilities, such as
casinos, hotels, athletic facilities, healthcare operations and convention
centers, can successfully achieve improved productivity and quality, while
lowering labor costs.
The FL-LITE Flatwork Folder quickly and
efficiently folds a variety of flat goods including sheets, pillowcases,
tablecloths and napkins. The FL-LITE can also fold duvets and bedspreads thanks
to a blade-assisted cross fold that is adaptable to item thickness. The folder offers ease
of use and adjusts to specific needs – performing up to two primary folds on
one or two equal lanes and cross folds on one middle lane, with an optional
third primary fold. The FT-LITE is adaptable to work with most ironers on the
market and utilizes an advanced touch-screen control that enables 20 program
options to fit specific folding requirements. Delivering processing speeds of
up to 164 feet per minute, the FL-LITE can significantly boost laundry
productivity–especially when used in conjunction with a Continental Pro-Series
Heated Chest Ironer and AP-LITE drop-plate stackers.
he AP-LITE Drop Stacker features an
effective flap-drop system and an upper belt for exceptional stacking quality. Specifically
designed to work with the FL-LITE Folder, it stacks items according to the
initially selected quantity and number of items per stack. The Stacker then
discharges the stacks onto a delivery conveyor. Once connected to the FL-LITE
Folder, the AP-LITE is programmed via the folder’s control and can process up
to 100 stacks of 10 per hour.
Continental Girbau folders
and stackers are backed by a two-year limited warranty. To find out more about
