For the 18th time, Milan is the world capital for laundries services: The event was the international trade fair EXPOdetergo late October. Not only did STAHL present its many machines in various sizes, but also a unique feature that customers have been waiting on. “Our summary of the trade fair is positive,” Sebastian Hatz, sales director DACH of Gottlob STAHL Wäschereimaschinenbau GmbH explains.
For four days, together with the managing directors and trading partners, he introduced himself to customers from all over the world, informed, discussed and presented. “We are pleased that many customers came particularly to our booth to ask for information about our products and make solid inquiries.” After all, a trade fair like this, according to Hatz, is always an excellent opportunity to gain feedback on our services and market products.
The New Feature
Feedback from our customers was one inspiration for a highlight that excited not only new but also our regular customers. The unique feature involves laundry machines from the series ATOLL and Divimat. With the innovative function, it is now possible to change different parameters flexibly during a running process. Specifically, this means: i.e., it becomes clear during a laundry-process that a longer holding time or more water is needed; now these settings are adjustable with the new generation of machines. The new settings not only apply to the current cycle, but can be conveniently saved as a default for further washing cycles. The parameters “temperature,” “holding time,” “water level,” “number of revolutions,” “purge time,” “spinning time” and “spin speed” are separately adjustable during a running wash, rinsing or spinning program.
Of course, that was not the only innovation STAHL presented to the visitors: The dryers T352-T356, now entered the third generation with more improved recirculation. The newest generation convinces with sophisticated features such as a low-maintenance drive system, an additional lint filter to protect the steam register, which is particularly easy to clean, the possibility of full isolation and optimized residual moisture measurement. Additionally, the dryers become more flexible: With adjustable feet, they can be perfectly aligned on any surface, and can also be rearranged quite easily by a lift car.
Flexible Laundry-Feed with SERVANT
The Flatiron, laundry-feed, and folding machines drew most attention because they open up an enormous saving potential for companies. For customers, who are looking for a new laundry-feed machine, an investment in the new SERVANT is worth it. The machine has undergone a significant overhaul: Amongst its innovations are a clamping-feed secured by a light-grid and light control for a simplified laundry input. On request, SERVANT can additionally be equipped with a stretch conveyor, brushing device and blower tube for loosening and spreading laundry when entering. The laundry input is optional and possible for up to three stations.
Customers were excited about these innovations. That delights Sebastian Hatz, sales manager DACH: “Being close to the market and delivering the best to our customers – that has always been the philosophy of STAHL. We are pleased to have succeeded in proving this with our new feature and new products and that we are making life a little easier for our customers.” STAHL once again demonstrates continuous optimization of the product range and increases flexibility while working with the machines significantly.
