it's OWL ReSerW successfully completed:
Intelligent communication between processes, a significant reduction of consumed resources and utilization of new gripping technology: these are the results of the project "Ressourceneffiziente selbstoptimierende Großwäscherei" (ReSerW), which have been realized by Kannegiesser and four research institutions within the leading edge cluster it's OWL. During the final presentation on April 27, all partners expressed their satisfaction with the outcome of the joint project.
The results were obtained by close cooperation between Kannegiesser and the research institutions CITEC (University of Bielefeld), the Institute for Industrial Mathematics (Paderborn University), the Heinz Nixdorf Institut (Paderborn University), and the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechatronic design. Dirk Littmann, managing director of Kannegiesser, reported on the advances in the development of industrial laundries with respect to productivity, quality, flexibility, and energy efficiency. Using intelligent communication and mathematical optimization techniques, a significant reduction of the consumed resources could be realized during the last years. According to Littmann, the required amount of water per kg laundry could be reduced from ten to three liters, the energy consumption from 2 kWh to 0,8 kWh, and the amount of washing detergents could be reduced by 50 percent.
