The Darman Towel Winder is used for winding only. It is usually purchased by a medium to large volume laundry.

The winder has a built in beater bar which helps straighten the washed toweling, insuring that it will roll up smooth and straight.

By changing the length of the drive belt, the processing time to roll a towel can be varied from 40 seconds to 21 seconds.

The motor runs only when you step on the foot pedal and then the drive roller and beater bar are engaged.

The Single Lane Unwinder is used only for unwinding and flaking the soiled towel as it comes in to be washed. It is normally purchased by a medium to large volume laundry.

The unwinder is easily loaded and unloaded by only one operator, and automatically unwinds the towel once it is loaded. The flake (flat fold) length of the towel can be adjusted, and an electric towel sensor automatically turns off the machine if the towel wraps around the drive roller.
