Flat Work Ironer

What is Flat Work Ironer?

A flat work ironer, also known as a roller ironer, is a specialized machine used in commercial and industrial laundries to efficiently press and finish large flat textiles such as bed linens, tablecloths, and towels. It consists of a heated roller and a flat bed through which fabrics pass, applying heat and pressure to remove wrinkles and creases. Flatwork ironers are essential for maintaining high-quality standards and productivity in laundry operations.

Components and Operation

Heated Roller: The central component of a flatwork ironer is a large roller that is heated internally using steam or electricity. This roller generates the necessary heat to effectively press fabrics.

Flat Bed: Below the heated roller is a flat surface against which the fabric is pressed. This combination of heat and pressure helps to remove wrinkles and creases from the textiles.

Conveyor System: Fabrics are fed into the ironer through a conveyor belt system. This allows for continuous feeding of linens, ensuring a steady flow through the pressing process.

Types of Flatwork Ironers

Single-Roll Ironers: These machines have a single heated roller and are suitable for smaller-scale operations or specific types of textiles.

Multi-Roll Ironers: Larger operations often use multi-roll ironers, which have several rollers lined up consecutively. This design increases throughput and efficiency.

Benefits of Using a Flatwork Ironer

Efficiency: Flatwork ironers can process large volumes of textiles quickly, far exceeding the speed and consistency of manual ironing.

Consistency: The heat and pressure applied by the roller ensure uniform results across all textiles, maintaining a high standard of finish.

Versatility: Modern flatwork ironers are versatile and can handle a wide range of fabrics and thicknesses, from delicate linens to heavy-duty materials like towels and sheets.


Flatwork ironers are essential in industries where presenting clean, wrinkle-free textiles is critical, such as:

Hospitality: Hotels and resorts rely on flatwork ironers to maintain the crisp appearance of bed linens and tablecloths.

Healthcare: Hospitals and healthcare facilities use flatwork ironers to ensure hygienic and well-presented patient linens.

Commercial Laundries: Large-scale laundries serving multiple clients benefit from the efficiency and throughput of flatwork ironers.
