The main objective of the Dressman robot is to dry and press shirts. On placing a damp shirt on the ironing figure….

….this dummy inflates with hot air in its interior, and thus puffs the shirt up, removing creases drying the garment (it has to be previously wet and undergone a spin-dry in a washing machine).



The device has a heater box inside with a number of different resistance elements. While we are placing the shirt on it, this box stores up heat in such a way that, when the garment is positioned and we press the start button, the whole ironing dummy fills with hot air which presses and dries the shirt. Moreover, the device has an air filter which prevents dirt entering the ironing dummy.



The time for the ironing process is selected by the user. The temperature of the resistance elements is not, only the cycle time, which lasts from 4 to 15 minutes, depending on the type of cloth in the shirt being ironed (a normal cotton shirt usually takes 7-8 minutes). These times are selected on a rotary selector that is on the device itself.



When the ironing process has finished the device blows cold air for 1 minute in order to stabilise the cloth and thus prolong the effect of the ironing.
