Springs & padding

The output quality of a flatwork ironer depends mainly on having a good contact between the linen and the heated chest.

The smalles loss in roll diameter significantly reduces production quality.  For the latest ironers with deep chests and large diameters applies a quality reduction of up to 40% for a loss of only 2 mm thickness.
This is prevented by the springs underneath the needlefelt, and this underlines the importance to have the springs in good condition.  Furthermore, having bad or clogged springs hinders the evaporation process.  And this leads to a reduction of the service life of the needlefelt.

Current ironers are usually equipped with soft springs in stainless steel with a high tolerance to corrosion, or with extra soft springs in galvanized steel.  The height varies from 6 mm up to 17 mm, and are often covered with a wrap needlefelt.

For Lapauw®-ironers (covered with thick felt), springs are mounted directly on the roller.  This prevents the holes in the roll from being closed off and the moisture can be disposed of properly.

Winding steel wool is still in use with older models of ironers.
If desired, our technicians take care of the installation or repair of your ironer's base layer. (Benelux)
