The main innovation we presented at the EXPO-DETERGO 2010 was our single-buck shirt press ANGEL This machine, the only one in its range that can claim to be 100% made-in-Italy, allows an impressive hourly production of around 50/60 pieces, for shirts that are washed and tumble-dried at about 1,200 rpm.
This press combines highly professional performance with extreme ease of use. Thanks to its simple, intuitive controls it can be used even by unskillful operators, with reduced labor costs, while the fine tolerances used in construction and the high quality finish avoid any final shirt touching-up: energy consumption is vastly reduced and the finishing quality is always to the same uncompromising high standard and consistent in finish.
The high standard finish makes its performance of great interest even for Italian and European markets (usually known for their high requirements from this side), in addition to the American market of course.
Still during the show in Milan we officially presented the latest version of our 405 shirt finisher, called 405 EVO (because of its evolutionary features in comparison with its previous well-known and appreciated version). The 405 EVO is equipped with a yoke-press and tuck-pressing devices, its operations are controlled through a PLC control box.
These innovations, applied to an already highly-performing machine, allow to obtain unprecedented results both in terms of finishing quality and of production.
The innovations on 405 EVO were welcome and enthusiastically approved by our distributors and the feedback from the market was totally positive; many pieces have been already installed with great satisfaction of our customers.
Other finishers, that we call “hybrids” (because they are suitable for finishing both shirts and coats in general), complete this range.
Model 404, thanks to its upgraded technical features, grants a high finish quality on shirts, lab-coats and uniforms, washed and tumble-dried, which need only little steam and overheating to dry quickly, and pneumatic tensioning to stretch the seams. This machine is equipped with a front paddle with pneumatic closing device, and a vacuum steam-heated counter paddle. Both paddles are padded to avoid the marks of buttons or to prevent the pressure from leaving marks or a polish effect on the fabrics, especially on dark ones.
The hem is blocked by a rear clamp and two side clamps, and is tensioned by a pneumatic trolley. The sleeve clamps are air-operated and their height is adjustable. Operational cycles are managed through a microprocessor with either 10 saveable programmes or manual cycles.
With a simple flick of a switch this finisher is set into “coats” mode (jackets, coats, hotel uniforms, dresses etc., all garments that need a large quantity of steam and a lower drying temperature). In this case the sleeve clamps and the side/rear clamps are excluded.
Model 403 is slightly different, having less automation. Operations are mainly manual. Its reduced price makes it more affordable even for medium- or small-sized businesses where the advantages of a professional form finisher are anyway essential.
And last comes the “basic” model, MG-321.
Collar and cuffs have to be processed before, on a specific press such as mod. CCP.
A high-quality service and the satisfaction of the clientele demand sometimes that the shirt would be folded and bagged, instead of being hung on a clotheshanger.
produce a shirtfolder that allows to handle also this phase of the process properly.
shirtfolder, manually operated, is very easy to use and requires no installation and very little maintenance.
The operational sequence consists of a few rapid moves, after which your shirt will come out folded, bagged and ready for delivery.
