Automated, centralized and decentralized textile management

Efficient textile management for uniforms and pool laundry

As employees enter and leave the supply room, their clothing is automatically recorded and accounted for in the revolving doors.

The intelligent RFID locker systems enable the decentralized issue and return of textiles and thus reduce staff travel times enormously

Laundry Distribution (Centralized)

texRoom, The Central Room Solution

centralized laundry issuance

The RFID room solution is customized and functions like a walk-in wardrobe. An intelligent turnstile, texCarousel, provides the controlled entrance and exit of this solution, controlling access and logging each removal of work garments from the room to the respective user. Fresh garments are conveniently delivered via the texGate using standard laundry carts. The texGate acts as an airlock and records the clothing in laundry carts so that the newly delivered clothing is recorded to the room.

Return (Decentralized)

texCabinets for Worn Laundry

decentralized laundry issuance

Laundry is easily returned to return lockers, placed in easy work locations. The wearer simply throws their worn laundry in the locker's drop flap. The is used is automatically read and logged by the locker. This seamlessly records the laundry cycle in detail in the system. You can see exactly which clothes are in use and can therefore derive your requirements and optimize your inventory.

Delivery of Clean Laundry

The transferGate is like a security airlock into 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 whenever someone approaches the airlock with a laundry container. A green illuminated LED strip then signals that the airlock is active and can be accessed. This ensures that all textiles are properly detected. The transferGate can be used with all standard  laundry cart models, does not require any doors or other components that need servicing and therefore requires no maintenance. An air-permeable roof ensures good air quality in the transferGate at all times.

The loading staff can also enter the room with laundry containers and book clothing into room inventory. The flapGate is installed directly at an entrance/exit door to the loading room and the authorization to open this door is controlled by the flapGate. On the room side, a flexible, motorized curtain controls access. Built-in LED bars signal access authorization to users in a simple way.

texLoad

Collection of Clean Laundry

Fresh clothes can be booked in at the texLoad station. To do this, the fresh laundry is recorded at the texLoad and placed in a trolley for transportation to the warehouse or issue point. As soon as the trolley is filled, the recorded clothing in the respective trolley is linked to the trolley transponder.

Once the trolley has arrived at the warehouse, only the trolley transponder is recorded and the garments linked to it are booked into the warehouse accordingly. This is done via  trolleyScan.
