"VOLO" transfer system is implemented to overcome problems due to limited space or limited processing times available that do not recommend use of traditional handling methods.

The loading station can be designed with fixed suction points or a collection hopper. The laundry, suspended in the flow of air sucked into the rigid piping system, reaches a container unit. Container units are available in two models, with a capacity of either 75 kg or 150 kg.

This container unit is positioned to feed the ironing and sponge-folding lines, as well as overhead storage systems, trolleys and conveyor belts or other devices.
