Inwatec, the Danish-based company that develops machines for industrial laundries, has started development of a fully automated towel feeding robot. Building on the excellent work done by JENSEN-GROUP, the first robot prototype with use of artificial intelligence is expected in later this year.

Jensen made a significant development with the Jensen Evolution Cube. Now Inwatec will add the latest robot technology and artificial intelligence to the solution, to make it more robust.

Inwatec CEO Mads Andresen said: “We have some pretty good ideas of how to develop a fast and reliable fully automated system that both separates and feeds. Towels come in all kinds of sizes and fabrics, and obviously, it isn’t a straightforward job to feed the folding machines, but the Jensen team have got much experience also, and I think we are a long way down the road. So much I dare promise that the first prototypes will be assembled in our workshop in 2018.” More details can be found at
