Automated Textile Management

RFID laundry dispensing system - ideal for laundry dispensing and return of pool laundry, workwear and uniforms.

 

Automated, centralized and decentralized textile management

Efficient laundry management for workwear and pool laundry

For laundries, hospitals and care facilities as well as in the industrial sector, supplying employees with workwear, pool laundry and uniforms is often a challenge.

With the teXtag® textile management solution, you can automate the issue, return and management of pool linen, workwear and uniforms and map the entire textile cycle. Both centralised and decentralised issue and return of clothing, the transportation of used workwear to the laundry and the delivery of fresh garments.

Individually planned room solutions that work like a walk-in closet. When employees enter and leave the supply room, their clothing is automatically registered and accounted for by RFID readers inside the revolving doors.

The intelligent locker systems allow for the decentralised issue and return of textiles, thus reducing staff commuting times enormously.

  • Enormous cost savings through inventory optimization
  • 24 / 7 availability of laundry stocks
  • Reduction of shrinkage and loss of garments
  • Permanent inventory and transparency in the complete laundry cycle

"The registration of laundry means that each user only removes the clothes to which he or she is entitled. This eliminates the hoarding of laundry."

Peter Kettig, Project manager Berendsen GmbH West

 

"The lockers now unobtrusively relieve [the DRK Schwenningen] of annoying administrative work in the background and ensure continuous as well as reliable availability of service and emergency clothing."

Heiko Knickrehm, On-call leader at the DRK Ortsverein Schwenningen e.V.

 

" If a pair of pants doesn't come back, for example, the system shows who borrowed them. So I always know where which laundry is."

Jürgen Göddecke, Managing Director Klinikum Leverkusen

 

"Now I don't have to worry about the whole laundry management area and can use my precious time for my core business."

Ulrike Caselato, Managing director of the Pflegeteam Caselato

 

"The positive is that the time of the garment removal process has been significantly reduced compared to other systems or to previous times."

Peter Hübner, Head of Transport and Logistics Business Unit Klinikum Lüneburg

Revolving door for entering and leaving the texRoom

The tamper-proof revolving door for entering and leaving the texRoom identifies each user by means of an RFID credential. All  textiles taken by the user are detected in just 5 seconds when leaving through the revolving door and the system automatically posts them to the user account. The revolving door has an emergency stop switch, which allows the brakes to be released and the texRoom to be exited at any time. The same happens in case of a power failure.

transferGate

Fresh workwear delivery

The transferGate is a gate to the texRoom which ensures that all textiles equipped with transponders are automatically identified and added to the inventory. The transferGate is activated via a motion detector or an access control reader as soon as someone approaches the gate with a laundry container. A green illuminated LED bar signals that the airlock is active and can be entered. This ensures that all textiles are detected. The transferGate can be used with all common mesh conatiners. It does not use any components that require maintenance. An air-permeable roof ensures good air quality in the transferGate at all times.

flapGate

Exit and loading gate

The flapGate is an exit and loading gate for the texRoom. In the gate, it is ensured that withdrawals by users and loads by personnel are reliably identified and accounted for. Users can exit the texRoom through the flapGate. Removed garments are automatically recorded and booked to the user account. If the user´s quota is exceeded, the flapGate can refuse to leave the room if a user is obviously hoarding workwear or wants to supply his colleagues at the same time. Likewise, the loading personnel can enter the room with laundry containers, for example, and book clothing into the room stock. It is placed directly at an entrance/exit door to the loading room, the permissions to open this door are controlled by the flapGate. On the room side, a flexible motorized curtain controls access. Built-in LED bars easily signal access authorization to users.

  • All-in-one solution for loading and as an exit gate
  • Requires little space
  • Integrates seamlessly into the teXtag® product family
  • High user throughput

Registration of fresh clothes

Fresh laundry can be booked in at the texLoad station. For this purpose, the fresh laundry is registered at the texLoad station and placed in a trolley for transport either to the laundry storage or laundry distribution area. As soon as the trolley is filled, the registered laundry in the respective trolley is linked to the trolley transponder.

As soon as the trolley arrives at the storage area, only the trolley transponder is recorded and the garments linked to it are booked into the inventory accordingly. This is done via the trolleyScan.

  • Reliable, simple registration of fresh laundry
  • Simple, clear process

trolleyScan

Identification of fresh clothes

The trolleys with the garments linked to the trolley transponders are registered by the trolleyScan and booked accordingly. Most of the time, the trolleyScan is located in the texRoom so that the laundry is automatically booked as soon as the trolley is pushed into the texRoom.

Just push the trolley into the room and it is booked automatically - it couldn't be easier.

  • Reliable simple booking
  • Automatic process without manual steps

User accounts

Commander Connect

Precise policies can be set per user or per user group. The individual user accounts show the account balances at any time, which provide information about the consumption and the available quotas. As an admin, you can see exactly who has withdrawn or returned what and when. You can flexibly set limits so that your clothing stock is used according to your wishes and all employees always have enough workwear available.

You can also control who is allowed to remove their workwear from which issue cabinets or in which laundry rooms. In this way, you can also ensure that there are no queues in front of the issue point and that your employees have the shortest possible walking distances.

  • Individual accounts per employee
  • Flexible withdrawal limits
  • Admin functions in case employees overdraw their account
  • Control who can withdraw how much and from where

Item management

Commander Connect

Garments are created as articles in the database and can be specified precisely depending on the available data, e.g. by size, color, material, etc. In addition, it is possible to create meaningful article groups to make the allocation and evaluation clear and simple.

Authorizations (which user is allowed to pick what?) can be defined very precisely. In addition to the assignment of which articles may be removed, it is also possible to define where the articles may be removed. For example, it can be precisely set that a user group is only allowed to take their clothes from the issue cabinets in their station.

  • Group items and specify them precisely
  • Reduce authorizations to specific locations
  • Monitor user accounts
  • Block output when users exceed quotas
