Pavan said deep appreciation was expressed by Italian and international fresh pasta operators who saw the new machinery and the innovative technological and mechanical features as well as the energy efficiency and simplification in the washing and sanitation procedures.
The day started with a conference on topics related to microbiology and food safety as well as the innovative and distinctive features of the presented machines. Fresh Pasta Sales Manager Paolo Carossa simulated real operating conditions, showing the efficiency these new lines can achieve.
Technical Director Ing. Sandro Rasera guided visitors through the production departments for the presentation of two automatic double-tank kneaders with a capacity of 1,100 and 1,700 kg/h, respectively.
In a dedicated area the following lines were also displayed: an entirely washable sheeter line for classic tortellini; filled pasta and double sheeted pasta; the SPW630 sheeter (630 mm wide and 7 mm thick sheets; 700 kg/h capacity); and the SPT540 double sheeter (producing two 540 mm wide and 7 mm thick sheets, 1,000 kg/h capacity).
