Pants topper adds creases with minimal labor
Mamaroneck, NY — Trevil has introduced the Pantastar, the first machine able to finish an entire pair of pants, including the crease, without the need for a skilled, experienced worker.
The Pantastar irons the top of the pants like a tensioning pants topper while finishing the creases like a legger press. Trevil said it is the most accurate pants topper on the market as it contains features such as electronic adjustment of tensioning, anti-stretching devices, an advanced clamping system for cuffs and the exclusive TreviXpand system that adapts to the shape of the top of the pants.
After finishing the top, the Pantastar automatically folds the pants and presses a flawless crease using selective steaming and pressure adjustments to safeguard delicate fabrics.
The Pantastar meets several important needs for the drycleaner: improves quality and consistency as the machine does the job perfectly time after time; saves labor costs as it does not require an experienced, high cost presser; flexibility as the machine can be operated as only a pants topper for uncreased pants; saves space as there is no longer a need for two pieces of bulky equipment and reduces ambient heat as the work area around the machine stays much cooler than a topper and a legger.
