Modern Process Equipment

Azkoyen Group’s Latest: Xpression

The Azkoyen Group has introduced Xpression, a new, fully automatic espresso machine that aims to serve the restaurant industry on a more affordable level. The Xpression, which can produce up to 240 espresso coffees an hour, ensures that the amount of coffee released is always consistent, as the machine measures the coffee level in the infusion chamber and applies the same pressure level, and subsequently always infuses at the same temperature, with an outstanding resulting flavor and presentation.

Just as traditional machines operate, the user can modify the characteristics of the obtained product if they so desire: temperature, weight, grinding, infusion time, cup filling. The range is based on a single model with different versions, with Xpression 2CVIL being the most complete model.

A special version of Iguazu-II is available for removing “broca” and small size defects. These machines are now operating in several countries in Central and South America, Africa, India, and are being introduced in Vietnam.

Both models are available in different configurations for different production requirements and are expandable to add future capacity.

Nuova Simonelli’s Latest

Nuova Simonelli has introduced two new machines: the Appia and the Aurelia. The Appia inherits the essential elements of an elegant design and the innovative characteristics of the hydraulic system, of the boilers and the supply groups. In particular, it has the same system of double infusion, which consists of optimizing the extraction, as well as the cream of the coffee in a cup. Finally, the Appia has been planned with the same ergonomic stratagems marking the Aurelia.

The Aurelia, after its launch in the market in 2003, is re-proposed this year at the Host in a series of new colors. The Aurelia has a luminous sign that can be programmed, and with which the operator can send messages to strike the attention of the consumer. The messages’ programming is flexible, and enables both their animation and the planning of the time of the day of their apparition.

The Aurelia also features a hydraulic system in the boiler, in the supply groups, in the filter holder and in the electronic functions. It is also the first machine in the world certified by the European Institute of Ergonomy, and it is consigned together with the ergonomic handbook, made by Professor Giordano Pierlorenzi.

FKI Logistex has launched the S-3000CB cross-belt sorter. The S-3000CB cross-belt sorter provides accurate, high-speed transportation and sortation of items that present difficulties during traditional sorting, such as fragile products and hard-to-grip packages.
