Even in modern industrial laundries, many routines and processes are still heavy, dirty, and potentially dangerous. Especially repetitive tasks often result in employees making mistakes; some of which can be extremely costly. Fortunately, the industry’s leaders recently focused on the development of new solutions such as robots, artificial intelligence and data management.
Inwatec’s automated soiled side sorting system minimizes the need for human interaction to quality control and surveillance. It consists of an X-ray machine and a learning system. Robots pick up the individual laundry pieces from conveyor belts and transport them to RFID chip readers to identify and register each garment. Directly after that, an X-ray scanner automatically detects unwanted hidden objects in the pockets and rejects these contaminated garments. Only approved laundry articles are forwarded further to be sorted accordingly by the system. Today, all these tasks can be performed by only a few operators who have to manually empty the pockets of the rejected garments. The X-ray scanner also functions perfectly as a stand-alone device: it checks soiled laundry pieces for dangerous foreign items and creates a safe and efficient working environment. With X-ray technology, harmful foreign sharps such as needles, scissors, scalpels, etc. can no longer remain undetected in the pockets.
Gotli Labs is a large team of experienced and dedicated software specialists that have created the unique product Globe. Globe consolidates the data management in heavy-duty laundries. It is the first and only solution to manage all your data, including staff scheduling, time and attendance and a track and trace functionality.
