Education On Tour

The Tingue Tours America seminar program recently stopped in New Jersey, California and Georgia to showcase the latest advances in laundry products and equipment. This continuing education seminar focused on dust collection, safety, linen distribution and ironer maintenance to help Tingue reps maintain their standing among the most knowledgeable laundry techs in the industry.

Bryant Dunivan of dust collection system manufacturer Energenics reminded attendees to look for the UL-approved symbol on dust collectors. This documents the unit has been tested, inspected and approved by Underwriters Laboratories® for an extra measure safety and peace of mind.

Dunivan stressed that removing dust and other particulates from the facility supports worker health, safety and comfort, and also protects the ironers and other equipment. “Preventing dust from accumulating on finishing equipment is the easiest way to promote high quality and high throughput while cutting on maintenance needs,” said Dunivan.

Talley Machinery’s Randy Vansparrentak unveiled the company's line of Maxi-Press extractor press membranes. He described how their strength and durability extend performance long after ordinary membranes have lost their shape and spring. Attendees were able to see how the natural elastomer material and ribbed surface compared to other membranes for a greater understanding of when membranes need to be replaced or upgraded. Installing long-lasting parts like these membranes instantly cuts maintenance needs, he explained.

Meese Orbitron Dunne Co.’s Dave McHugh unveiled several of the company’s latest laundry carts and trucks. McHugh revealed how MOD engineers used 3-D modeling to come up with an internal rib design, hidden structural supports and other advances that handle heavier loads on the same footprint as other carts. How this was achieved while reducing tare weights raised many eyebrows in the room.

Textile consultant Wally Forman (pictured) demonstrated the Tingue line of Econobag route and counter bags. He detailed how the stitching, material and other properties deliver impressive strength and durability beyond common laundry bags.

Hosting the seminars were Tingue, Brown & Co. Regional Managers Mitch Strauss, David Rovetto and Danny Ross.
