Israeli Company Launches New Automated Uniform Dispensers
An Israeli company has launched a new, contactless uniform dispenser, which maximizes efficiency, cuts costs, and prevents uniform shortages.
The next generation of Polytex Technologies’ product, the Polytex Pro, dispenses clean workwear in just six seconds, and each unit can store up to 1,200 garments in up to 60 item variations.
Workers simply swipe a card so the machine can identify them and instantly pull up their default garment type and color. Each unit contains a robotic mechanism that can identify and grasp a wide range of loose or packaged items.
Polytex has over 4,000 installed machines at large-scale manufacturing companies, hotels, fitness centers, and hospitals. With its hands-free dispensor, it prevents contamination.
The garments also have tracking tags so that management can identify and record uniforms, as well as ensure their continuous availability and prevent shortages.
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, it became clear that with no-touch operations and always available clean clothes, Polytex was the way forward for hygienic workwear management,” commented Yariv Matzliach, CEO of Polytex.
“Now with Polytex PRO, we’ve set a new standard, providing customers with a simpler, smaller, faster solution that saves time and provides higher performance, increased data visibility, and improved overall utility.”
Polytex was established in 2003, and is based in Caesarea, northern Israel. In 2019, it received a major investment from private equity fund Fortissimo Capital for an undisclosed amount.
