Soil/Clean Sling Systems
Soil / Clean Rail Systems – PulseNet Soil and Clean Rail Manager
AUTOMATED SLING MATERIAL HANDLING
Today’s automated laundry plants demand high dependability and reliability of textile delivery to and from automated wash aisles.
Clean and Soil Sling Systems have become mission critical for automated plants to achieve expected production throughput due
to the following reasons:
Plant Productivity – adequate soiled textiles availability
to the wash aisle and clean textiles for finishing
operations will optimize the plants and will
affect the total plant's labor and utility costs.
Increased Storage Capacity – overhead clean and soiled storage
reduces Work-in-Process on the floor, which ensures goods
availability and optimizes productivity.
Industrial Hardened Components – the 2” Melonited Monorail
undergoes a thermo-chemical surface treatment, which produces a
superior surface finish. This process diffuses nitrogen and carbon
into the metal causing the metal to harden. This delivers greater
DIMENSIONAL STABILITY, HIGHER SURFACE HARDNESS
(>Rockwell 30 rc), and reduced FATIGUE and WEAR, and
outstanding CORROSION RESISTANCE (up to 100 times more
resistant than traditional coatings as tested by ASTM B117).
Distributed Control Design – Softrol rail automation utilizes and
deploys a networked and distributed control system utilizing
modular components, thus simplifying the implementation and
improving reliability. This allows the peace of mind that a “mission
critical” process has been designed to minimize failure. The
distributed control system allows preventive maintenance on
sections of the system without taking the whole system down.
Information Management – Softrol’s data capture, analysis
and reporting is designed to feature real time status (plant floor)
and historical (Web Based) management reporting. These two
levels of information are critical to manage throughput and assist
management with the goal of continuous improvement.
Softrol’s Rail Manager Systems can be used to automatically,
or semi-automatically, transfer soiled and clean textiles to and from
the wash aisle. These systems accurately transport and store
textiles with minimal labor, make use of overhead storage, and provide
information to management for production and productivity.
