The new DRE Feeder is a versatile machine offering precision, speed and quality, while the Girbau DRC Cornerless Feeder meets the differing productivity and quality requirements of each laundry, at the same time as providing the highest safety level for operators.
Through innovation, Girbau works to provide solutions to give an efficient, comprehensive response to its customers' needs and generate value for the industrial laundry sector. In this respect, in 2021 the company has launched its new high-speed feeders for flatwork ironing systems, the latest-generation DRE and DRC systems, which deliver precision and control to ensure high quality and a perfect finish.
The new DRC Feeder is further proof of how innovation enables Girbau to get closer than ever to its customers, as for the first time the DRC meets a need that laundry professionals had been insisting on: not having to find the corners of sheets and other pieces being fed into the flatwork ironer. Thus, this machine was developed for fast feeding of single bed sheets with special attention to efficiency, boosting the operator's throughput per hour. This high throughput speed was achieved by using the Girbau patented Cornerless feeding system, which means the operator does not need to find the corners to feed in the item. This makes this machine unique on the market in its ability to work in 2 lanes. Thus, the new feeder makes the operator's job easier, boosts productivity and reduces energy consumption.
Moreover, the new DRE Feeder is a versatile machine offering precision, speed and quality through a variable setup with 2, 3 or 4 loading stations which, thanks to their new clamps, assure a smooth, trouble-free transfer from the loading stations to the servers, so boosting the quality of the transfer to the ironing area. Also, the loading stations have been designed to boost ergonomics, safety and comfort while working as they can be adjusted individually to suit the operator's height and automatically detect the presence of linen to start loading with no need for a start button. The PLC control system of the DRE feeder features the Human Machine Interface (HMI) with the latest, most advanced 10” touchscreen to ensure optimum control of the feeding parameters.
With these two innovations Girbau stays at the cutting edge in solutions for the sector, with two tough, versatile and fast machines that will make life much easier and more convenient for both industrial laundries and the operators working there, as well as boosting the capacity and profitability of the business.
