Energy Saving Opportunities

Saving is possible and necessary:

  • to get a reduction of the global pollution;
  • to get a healthier environment;
  • to get a reduction of energy costs, which are getting higher and higher, and are going to wipe out our profits.


We have often thought about these issues, but we have rarely faced them or taken action on them.

The highest energy consumption in laundry or dry cleaning plants comes from the finishing area. In fact,

  • Whilst the energy consumption of a washing machine is easy to calculate, is always negligible in relation with the amount of washed garments, and is totally absent when the machine is idle, the real consumption is due to the finishing operations, and this is difficult to calculate.
  • We often switch on the steam generator at the beginning of the day even if we start finishing one hour later.
  • We keep all the machines always operational with power and steam.
  • We do not switch off the machines during lunch breaks.
  • We do not switch off the machines when we do not use them.
  • The amount of garments to be finished often drops by the middle of the week, but the machines are constantly kept in operation.
  • Sometimes a machine stays on for hours without being operated.


This means that the electric meter keeps running fast, the kW consumption increases and the electricity bill becomes more and more expensive.

In order to really reverse this situation, we have designed a new touch-screen computer that, besides endless possibilities, options and statistics for the machine control, is equipped with a stand-by function that, when selected, switches off the machine after the previously set time in case of non-use, cutting the power and steam supply, to totally eliminate any energy consumption.

To use the machine again, you simply need to press a key, and a patented device will control the gradual restoration of functions, which will be available again a few minutes later.

The new control panel also allows you to control production, productivity, idle times, statistics and non-compliance with production rate even from your personal computer.
