Vacuum Feeder

Vacuum Feeders

CLM’s NapkinFaster, the VacFeed and the FeedFaster are three more ways to increase the efficiency and productivity of your plant operation. Whether you’re processing napkins, tabletops or sheets, CLM’s  vacuum feeders help increase speed and quality of work. 

NapkinFaster

Feeding napkins and other small items into flatwork ironers can be one of the slowest and most inconsistent operations in any plant. That's why CLM has developed the NapkinFaster vacuum spreader/ feeder for napkins and other small items.

Conveyor

Five-lane NapkinFaster easily fits on the feed end of most ironers.

The NapkinFaster installs in minutes and easily fits on the feed end of most ironers. Once installed, the NapkinFaster will increase production of small items up to 25%, by minimizing loss of ironer capacity between items as occurs with normal hand feeding.

Features

  • Increases production of ironed napkins and other small items
  • Operators need only feed the leading edge of items, the Napkin Faster does the rest
  • Ensures consistent quality in all your small ironed goods
  • Eliminates creases
  • Fully adjustable including height, belt speed and vacuum

And using the NapkinFaster is quite easy, requiring no additional training or supervision. Your operators simply place the leading edge of small items on the feed ribbons in the normal manner. The NapkinFaster then takes over by spreading and straightening the linen as it enters the ironer, leaving your operators free to quickly release the item and reach for the next one, even while the one already fed is still entering the ironer.

The NapkinFaster achieves its amazing results through the use of five individual, powerful vacuum chambers along with specially contoured stainless steel feed plates. Together, these features work to maximize ironer productivity while virtually eliminating creases.

The NapkinFaster is fully adjustable, allowing you to easily and quickly change the unit's height and suction power. Belt speed automatically changes to accommodate the speed of your ironer. With a NapkinFaster in place, you will increase production and item quality.

VacFeed

If you're like most linen plant managers, you are constantly searching for new ways to increase the efficiency of your workers while ensuring consistently high production quality. The CLM VacFeed provides just such a solution.

VacFeed

The VacFeed virtually eliminates creases in tabletops and other large pieces.

The VacFeed is a proven approach to the feeding of tabletops and other large pieces. The VacFeed works with virtually any ironer, minimizing loss of ironer capacity between items as occurs with normal hand feeding.

Features

  • Increases ironer production
  • Operators need only feed the leading edge of linens while the VacFeed does the rest
  • Ensures consistent quality in all your ironed linens
  • Eliminates creases
  • Adjustable height
  • Installs in minutes

Your operators simply place the linen on the feed ribbons of the ironer. Once the leading edge of each item is fed, the VacFeed takes over and your workers are free to pick up the next item. Meanwhile, using powerful suction, the VacFeed spreads, straightens and squares the linen as it enters the ironer. No more creases!

The VacFeed features adjustable height and does its work by an extremely simple downdraft of air. With a VacFeed in place, you can increase your production and quality while minimizing the number of employees needed to operate your ironers.

FeedFaster

The FeedFaster is a proven approach to the feeding of sheets and other large and medium size pieces.

VacFeed

The FeedFaster works with ironers to increase production.

It reduces the labor factor as well as increases production, at the same time maintaining a high level of quality.

Features

  • Increases production and enhances the quality of sheets and other large ironed items
  • Operators need only feed the leading edge of linens, the FeedFaster does the rest
  • Eliminates creases
  • Decreases training time
  • Installs in minutes

The linen to be processed is placed on the feed ribbons of the ironer in the normal feeding manner. The FeedFaster then takes over by spreading and straightening the linen as it enters the ironer. Since the FeedFaster has taken over, this allows the operators to quickly release the linen and reach for the next piece while the one already fed is still entering the ironer.

The FeedFaster does its spreading and straightening by an extremely simple, ingenious system of a down-draft, or suction air, similar to the flapping of a wet flag in a strong breeze, or hand-shaking rather than simple tensions which cannot spread or straighten wrinkles in the direction of travel.

The FeedFaster takes up only 10" in front of the ironer and small pieces can be fed over the unit without disturbing the set-up, or the unit may easily be moved since it is mounted on casters.
