Automated feeding of flat laundry onto industrial folding machines

The Struggle

Industrial laundries are highly automated when it comes to washing and drying the textiles. Otherwise they would not be able to cope with the large quantities of dirty linen. There are even machines that take care of folding the laundry. But they have one major drawback: Each one of these machines requires an employee who feeds the laundry spread out and without any wrinkles. Human labor involves high costs, with 30% of the personnel costs in laundries alone being accounted for by equipping folding machines. And there is another problem: Feeding the folding machines manually is a highly exhausting and unpleasant job. Therefore industrial laundries struggle with finding qualified personnel and could double their production if enough workers were available.
