The T-Apparel is the most advanced, fully automatic clothing folding equipment offering Retail folding quality and the perfect solution for E-Commerce and Return handling.

The T-Apparel offers many different folding patterns and meets today’s requirements in the textile-industry.


T-Apparel Possibilities

The T-Apparel is fully automatic and can fold and stack all kinds of clothes, apparel, and garments.

Once the pieces are folded, they are directed to the lift stacker station or directly to the delivery belt located on the rear of the machine.

The folding program can be selected directly by the touch panel or via scanner/barcode reader.

The pieces are placed on the infeed conveyor belt. For a perfect feeding quality, the conveyor belt can switch between three running modes: automatic, button or continuously running.

Apparels are easily fed with the shoulders upwards for a perfect result (RETAIL QUALITY).

The T- APPAREL provides a quality stop feature. With this feature enabled, long pieces take an additional stop for quality correction before the actual folds are made.

The Lateral Fold

The T- Apparel is able to carry out all kinds of folding patterns. After feeding, the piece enters the lateral folding section. The lateral folds are done by air in combination with position controlled folding templates. The length of each piece is measured automatically for the highest quality result. The controlled roof position allows folding of thick and stiff as well as lite and slippery textile and dry-fit. The lenght of the lateral fold section allows all sizes to be folded.

The First Cross Fold

After the lateral fold section, the pieces enter the cross-fold section. Up to 2 cross folds can be done, offering all kinds of possibilities. In order to secure stable and high-quality folds, both cross folds are made by air-assisted reversing belts. Tight folded pieces are obtained as they are continuously kept between belts. The elastic belts ensure that the cross fold automatically adapts for thin, thick or slippery pieces. These belts are also pressing the pieces, creating a tightly folded result.

Sorting and Stacking

After the cross folding, the folded apparel is put on a stacker station. This stacker station collects the folded apparels. Once the required stack height is achieved, the stacker station puts the pile on the final incline belt.
