Equipment and Equipment Maintenance

Clean.Cloud POS

Clean Cloud

It’s been a while since I feel like we need a brand new POS system in the market, but the time is now and the product is here and it is Clean Cloud.  It is very inexpensive, cloud-based, absolutely gorgeous and – most importantly – it is adaptable to how you do things rather than it dictating to you how you must do things.  For example, many POS systems presume that cleaners are moving towards barcodes when, in reality, that movement has stalled in the US and has reversed in other parts of the world.  Clean Cloud, a UK company, is already completely compatible with Tailwind and other tag-based systems, all the while being very slick.  Complete with SMS, mobile app and all of the other features that you’d expect.  Their booth was among the busiest at the Clean Show and for a very good reason. This is the future of POS.  For one thing, it runs on iPads

CB Barbanti

Barbanti is a new brand in the shirt equipment manufacturing business.  They have been making equipment for other brands for 30 years but have they now have a new product and a new name plate.  I list it here for a heck of a good reason.  To the average customer, shirt pressing equipment is quite fascinating.  It is very robotic and complicated and intricate.  Way back in my early plant days when the shirt unit was in the coin laundry, customers would watch the pressers in awe for hours as their clothes would tumble dry.  Well, if you wanted to do that today, you would want to do it with a Barbanti shirt unit. There is a lot to love about this unit.

Sankosha SW-100 Stationary Washer

Sankosha introduced a new tensioning form finisher with sleeve spreaders that capture and hold in the steam (check out the photo).  It also has a curtain to contain the steam, keeping the operator and the area as cool as possible as well as an electric, motorized rotation.  Sankosha introduced a new spotting board (they never had one), but by far the slickest reveal at their booth was the Stationary Washer. Once you see it, you are tasked with a way to describe it:  It’s like a ___________, but with a ____________, only with a __________ and a ___________.  Know what I mean?  It’s hard to describe.  You’ll appreciate my movie.  Then you’ll buy one.  It’s completely self-contained.  It’s kinda like (here I go) a spotting board, but with water and soap containers underneath, and an AK-47, sort of thing from Return of the Jedi hanging from the top but it performs magic like David Copperfield.  This thing is insane.  April from Fashion Cleaners in Omaha made a mess of a wool coat for me and then cleaned it before my (and your) eyes.  You will be amazed!  This is the reason that they have Clean Shows.  So here’s what you do now:  Watch my video. Order yours. Start using it.
