Girbau Industrial Finishing & Folding Systems

Girbau Industrial finishing systems consist of feeders, ironers, folders and stackers designed to increase productivity while producing results that exceed the highest quality standards. Three feeders are available—the DRM compact high-production feeder, the DRF multi-station spreader feeder and the DRF-Lite multi-station spreader feeder.

Girbau Industrial

Two ironing systems are available—the PSN-80 Heated-Chest Ironer with one-, two- or three- 32-inch diameter rolls and the PC-120 with one-, two- or three- 48-inch diameter rolls (both offer finishing widths of 118, 130 and 138 inches and gas, steam or thermal fluid heating). Seven folders are available—three for linens, the FL-Smart, FL-King and FL-Lite, four for small pieces and garments, the FT-Maxi, the FT-Poly, the FT-Vest, and the FT-Lite. Three stackers are available—the VOL, the ROT, and the AP-Lite.


DRF Feeder
The DRF, Girbau Industrial’s most technologically advanced feeder, is quickly convertible to handle both large-, medium- and small-piece goods, making it highly desirable for high-volume laundries handling a variety of items. Offering unrivaled productivity, flexibility, programmability and quality, the DRF Spreader Feeder seamlessly and automatically straightens and feeds more than 1,200 large-sized items per hour into any height flatwork ironer. It accommodates one to four operators and one or two lanes simultaneously.

DRF-Lite Feeder
Designed for high-volume feeding of standard-sized linens, the DRF-LITE spreader feeder is the same size as the DRF spreader feeder, but offers fewer options. Capable of feeding 650 pieces per hour from one lane, the DRF-Lite offers two or three operator stations for feeding standard sized linens, including manual direct feed of small dimension goods. The DRF-Lite, which is easy to operate and adjust, is also simple to maintain.

DRM Feeder
The DRM feeder, designed to save space without sacrificing production, is considerably smaller than other feeders on the market. This makes the DRM a sensible choice for operations with limited space and a need for high-volume finishing. The DRM quickly dresses, flattens and feeds wet items – napkins, tablecloths, sheets and pillowcases – into a corresponding ironer. The result is significantly improved productivity and quality over hand feeding.

Flatwork Folders

Specifically designed to handle larger items, Girbau Industrial’s FL-King Folder delivers up to three primary folds and three cross folds using one, two or four lanes. Using a combination of blades, a reversing conveyor and air-jet technology, the FL-King offers an advanced touch-screen control, multi-program operation, and quality components for consistent, quality folding.

Girbau Industrial’s FL-Smart Folder offers an advanced control, multi-program operation and performs one or two primary folds on one, two or four lanes. The FL-SMART automatically folds a variety of items, including sheets, tablecloths, napkins and pillowcases using a combination of blades, a reversing conveyor and air-jet technology.

Girbau Industrial’s FL-Lite Folder performs up to two primary folds on one or two equal lanes and cross folds on one middle lane, with an optional third primary fold. This folder, which works with or without a stacker, delivers standard folding quality with the first cross fold being adaptable in thickness. The FL-Lite quickly folds a variety of items, including sheets, pillowcases, tablecloths and napkins.

Drywork/Garment Folders

The FT-Lite quickly and accurately folds small- and large-scale items (47.2 x 94.48 inches) alike. Operators manually feed items onto a feeding table for rapid and accurate folding. The FT-Lite offers superb flexibility and is programmable to create primary and secondary folds. It automatically classifies and stacks items according to their dimensions.

The FT-Maxi automatically sorts, folds and stacks a variety of dry goods – delivering unmatched folding quality in less time. The FT-Maxi eliminates dry good pre-sorting for superior productivity and can sort, fold and stack up to four differently sized items – up to 47.2 x 92.5 inches – simultaneously.

Designed to save labor and boost production, the FT-Poly eliminates dry good pre-sorting for superior productivity! Easy to program and operate, the FT-Poly will sort, fold and deliver items into four stacks ranging in size from 7.08 x 9.2 and 16.4 x 22.8 inches.

The most multi-dimensional Girbau Industrial folder, the FT-Vest comes equipped with an upper headstock that allows items to be turned over for folding in the front position. It also performs sleeve folding. Designed to save labor and boost production, the FT-Vest eliminates dry good pre-sorting for superior productivity! Goods of multiple categories are sorted, stacked and delivered by an automatic conveyor in sets of four.


A highly versatile and economic rotary stacker, the ROT performs the final cross-fold when working in concert with a FL-King or FL-Smart folder. The ROT works by making the third cross-fold, stacking the items in a predetermined quantity, and delivering the stacks using a conveyor.

The VOL drop stacker features an effective drop system and an upper belt which can be adapted to work in concert with a compact folder. The VOL stacks items according to the initially selected quantity, and then discharges the stacks onto a delivery conveyor.

The AP-LITE, which is specifically designed to work with the FL-LITE Folder, stacks items according to the initially selected quantity and number of items per stack. It then discharges the stacks onto a delivery conveyor.
