Oshkosh, WI— Girbau Industrial’s (GI) “Clean ’15” booth represented the brand’s newest technologies and industrial system offerings.
At the show, GI highlighted the expansion of its tunnel system product line, thanks to a partnership with Lavatec Laundry Technology Inc. (Lavatec). GI also introduced new products, including the DRB Feeder and enhanced PLC Control, and demonstrated GI ironing systems, including the Compact 5-in-One.
The recent collaboration with Lavatec allows both companies to take advantage of the products of their counterpart. GI now offers top-transfer Continuous Batch Tunnel Washer Systems with five-12 modules, with each module boasting 110 pounds of capacity; as well as bottom- and center-/top-transfer systems featuring 20 chambers, with each chamber touting 55 to 220 pounds of capacity. Additionally, open-pocket washer and dryer options have greatly expanded to include 250- to 600-pound capacity washers and 140- to 600-pound capacity dryers.
GI debuted a new addition to the DR Feeder Series – the DRB. The DRB Feeder allows for automatic feeding of items from one or two lanes, as well as manual feeding – with or without vacuum assistance – from one to four lanes. It features spreading belts and a vacuum box and table.
Another significant attraction at the show was the Compact 5-in-One Ironing System. Available in 102- and 130-inch finishing widths, the GI Compact feeds, irons, folds, stacks and accumulates at speeds of up to 82-feet-per-minute.
Also introduced was GI’s new PLC Control, which delivers systematic networking between feeders, ironers and folders.
