Fagor Industrial joins forces with IBM to launch a first-of-its-kind touchscreen commercial washer
The success of touchscreens has led to this technology being increasingly present in all aspects of everyday life, with a wider number of uses beyond smartphones. Fagor Industrial, at the cutting edge of innovation, wanted to be the first to implement this technology in its products for industrial equipment, and has worked closely with giant of technology IBM to launch the first commercial washer featuring a touchscreen.
The last generation of state-of-the-art commercial washers from Fagor Industrial features a new microprocessor “Touch Plus Control”, with an advanced performance touch display that offers the greatest flexibility to users and including an extra standard screen to control the laundry process.
The design of this state-of-the-art washer has been attained in record time, thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Research and Development Department at Fagor Industrial and a team of experts from IBM Business Partner, ULMA Embedded Solutions. Thanks to ULMA’s innovative design software, Fagor Industrial was able to cut time-to-market by up to 30%, and to be the first to offer its customers a high-performance industrial washer featuring a touch screen.
