FlexFeed LP2 two station flatwork feeder

The FlexFeed LP2 two station flatwork feeder, is a versatile feeder for both large and small flatwork and would suit small to mid-sized laundries, with a wide variety of linen types, looking to boost ironer productivity with minimal labour.


The machine has two feeding / buffer stations, where operators can clip-up two corners of a piece. The piece remains in the clips whilst the operator prepares the next item. A set of spreading clamps pick up the piece from the clips, spread it across the width of the machine and feed it onto the feed-bands with nice square edges helped by a combination of cutting edge servo-control and variable powered suction.

This offers three feeding modes to enhance the speed and quality of its work. These are:

  • Two people can feed via the feeding / buffer stations. One operator per station. Circa 300 pieces per station.
  • One person operation, feeding directly into the spreading clamps.
  • Small piece mode. Up to five lanes of small pieces can be manually fed with vacuum assistance for quality and speed.
