HJ Weir invest in Tuffscreens to maintain their machinery operation.
HJ Weir Engineering Co Ltd have added Tuffscreen screen protectors to their product portfolio of world-leading laundry machinery in order to maintain the operating interface between user and machine. Their equipment is used across the world and the company is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of flatwork finishing equipment.
As the machines have developed and become increasingly technically advanced and computer operated to improve the output, the control panel and display units have become increasingly important to the usability of the equipment and are now vital in reporting and monitoring performance, rates of flow, diagnosing stoppages or faults, and identifying service and maintenance requirements. With an exposed touchscreen now vital in the machinery the decision to protect it became one of utmost importance.
Ross Weir, Managing Director, said of the decision to deliver Tuffscreen with the machinery; “For us it was a very simple one indeed. The screens are increasingly important to the machinery, which is vital to our customers, who are our primary concern. Tuffscreens are an excellent “preventative” tool fitted on to all H J Weir machines as a standard feature”. Ross states that the prime reason for including Tuffscreens on all machines is that Weir understand that the harsh and fast moving environment within a busy laundry can present problems such as laundry cages ramming into the machines thus possibly smashing the screen and instigating costs involved with both machine downtime and having to replace the smashed screen. Using a Tuffscreen eliminates the possibility of screens being smashed which is hugely advantageous to the customer’s operational costs.
We haven’t observed a single screen that we have had protected with a Tuffscreen enduring any damage and that’s something we have rigorously “tried” to attempt whilst carrying out our pre-approval testing at Weir HQ!
Also known as the “originators of flatwork handling technology” HJ Weir have been providing separating, feeding, ironing, folding and stacking solutions globally for over 55 years processing sheets, duvet covers, pillow cases, table linen, napkins, towels and blankets. Our many years of experience coupled with innovative design and one of the most advanced yet simple control system makes us an unrivalled leader for the industrial and commercial laundry sector.
Tuffscreen screen protectors are a purpose-designed industrial strength screen protection solution. They have been deployed on a wide range of devices across multiple markets from travel and hospitality retail, in-store retail, distribution and logistics operations, law and parking enforcement, schools, manufacturing and processing facilities, civil engineering and construction, and many more. They are made from an impact absorbing gel layer which is chemically bonded to a scratch and abrasion-resistant hard sheet which helps to eliminate all causes of screen damage. They are custom-cut for each device to ensure a consistently high quality product.
