JENSEN Invests in Laundry Robotics and AI

The JENSEN-GROUP has acquired a participation of 30% in Inwatec ApS, a Danish company that manufactures high-end heavy-duty laundry products. This investment in laundry robotics and AI (Artificial Intelligence) confirms the Group’s vision to automate all processes in the laundry.

Inwatec’s core competence is in the field of automation, complementing the existing JENSEN product range. Founded in 2009 in Odense, Denmark, the company is active in more than 25 countries and employs 30 staff members globally.

Inwatec spans a bridge between JENSEN’s current offering in laundry solutions and Industry 4.0. Its product portfolio includes mat rollers, mat storage and material handling solutions, X-ray machines as well as sorting and distribution systems.

In accordance with JENSEN’s values of operational efficiency and safety, Inwatec also focuses on these aspects by creating a safer and more efficient working environment. Inwatec has developed an X-ray machine running with AI software that selects and rejects garments carrying foreign items.

Thanks to the X-ray technology, harmful objects such as pencils or tweezers can be removed and the eventuality of stab wounds or damage to the laundry equipment is nil. Complete automation systems for laundries processing mats range from the sorting area to the packaging and storage area. Also the robot, based on 3D camera technology, separating garments and small items at high speed is a great complement for JENSEN’s current offering to laundries handling garments.
