Creating the future in laundry automation with a strong focus on hygiene for German laundries

The need for automation and hygiene in Germany’s heavy duty laundries becomes more and more vital. But why is this that essential and one of the challenges in German laundries.

Jensen focuses on the increasing need of automation, offers innovative solutions and meets at the same time highest hygiene requirements for a safe work environment.

Automation describes a wide range of technologies that reduce human intervention in processes, essentially where laundry robotics removes the dirty work. German laundries are more and more interested in automating their production processes as some jobs in laundries become less pleasant and physically difficult or even dangerous when it comes to sorting of incoming linen.

This makes jobs not particularly attractive, especially since earnings are often not particularly high. In addition, there is an already shrinking labour force in German speaking countries with, at the same time, better access to knowledge and education so that people rather decide to study than to choose a physical job.

For Jensen’s partner Inwatec, the laundry of the future is a clean and safe workplace with very few manual processes and many intelligent robot systems that work together to create a perfectly finished product. And this becomes more and more relevant for German laundry owners.

“As a growing family-run company, we are open to innovation,” say brother and sister team Albert and Katrin Frey of the Frey Textilreinigung in Burgau, Germany. Their decision to purchase the Inwatec Greit Stack Storage and Pack-Out storage system shows that they are open to innovation. Greit consists of modules that can be used to create unique configurations that are perfect for every particular application. The system has recently been installed and is in use for providing and picking laundry for hospitals, retirement homes, and care homes. This is the perfect solution to automatically store flat textiles, thereby ensuring improved hygiene, as it means that the stacks of laundry have fewer points of contact. Hygiene is the second essential factor when creating the German laundry of the future.

Tunnel washers from Jensen meet highest hygiene requirements and are designed for disinfecting washing procedures which became vital since the beginning of the Covid pandemic. To do this, a Jensen tunnel washer connects to a Jensen water-extraction press to form a single unit. The complete reuse of the rinse and press water is part of an SL machine’s basic design. Without the need for a recovery tank, heat loss is reduced considerably, and valuable energy is saved. One more step to hygienic safety is the new patented UVClean system for Jensen tunnel washers. It automatically prevents bacteria growth in double drum areas without having to use any chemicals – it is the most natural, most environmentally friendly, and most efficient way to eliminate germs and bacteria.

“We evaluated the reduction of the defined sample germs as well as the total germ count, and were amazed by the results,” says Martin Sukop, sales manager Jensen Germany. “That’s why we highly recommend UVClean as an ecological and viable way to eliminate germs, bacteria and biofilms in the tunnel washer. It’s a simple, almost maintenance free system that prevents laundries from a lot of problems.”
