For perfectly finished laundry: New Miele flatwork ironers offer even better performance

Gütersloh, August 28, 2019 No. 69/2019
  • More than 100 kg of finished textiles per hour

  • New controls facilitate particularly uniform temperature distribution

Smart details and features make Miele flatwork ironers more convenient, versatile and efficient. This allows more than 100 kg to be processed per hour. There are three new entries in the large-product category in Miele's portfolio, with working lengths of between 180 cm and 210 cm. These products will be available from mid-October onwards.

Flatwork ironers with model designations PRI 318, PRI 418 and PRI 412 have a higher capacity than their predecessors. This is above all attributable to the new pneumatic cylinders in the side pedestals which raise and lower the trough. This technical design guarantees uniform contact pressure along the entire length of the roller, resulting in high throughput and an excellent finish. Fast-acting suspension makes the ironer ready for use in next to no time and makes work efficient. If there is a power cut, the suspension system sets into action immediately: The trough is released automatically so that fabrics can be removed before they have time to be damaged by the hot ironer.

Intuitive touch display

From the new touch display, all required functions can be selected intuitively and precisely and accessed fast, including temperature and roller speed – ensuring that ironing results are repeatable and of a consistently high quality. Frequently used programmes can be saved as favourites.

New, too, is a message in the display which warns users when items are fed in predominantly on one side only, without using the full length of the roller. Remedial action can then be taken, avoiding any drop in performance and speed. This also prevents one-sided strain on the roller padding.

A 'Pause' function is also available. In this case, the heating remains active. Machines can be programmed to reduce the temperature to save energy after a period of time which can be set by Service to suit users' needs.

Extended infeed and outfeed tables

The new generation of machines also features Miele's tried-and-tested outfeed table, designed to reflect the patented honeycomb drums used on washing machines and tumble dryers. The convex hexagons with holes at their intersections induce convection and evaporation, achieving a more permanent finish. An option in combination with this table is an extension to give a depth of 78 cm, corresponding to an increase of 20%. Large sheets, for example, are folded more easily on the larger surface. The new infeed table has a depth of 23 cm, offering 17% more space for introducing items of laundry.

Various accessories are available for even greater user convenience, including belt feed to simplify the introduction of laundry. A laundry box for items awaiting introduction is another practical accessory. This means items are always ready at hand, speeding up work. A cover protects the roller against dust, reduces heat losses and makes for a more pleasant workplace climate. Personnel costs can be reduced with a return-feed mechanism: This returns ironed textiles to the front of the machine, allowing operation by a single person. This feature can be switched on and off to suit requirements, further adding to the flexibility of these models.
