Among the technological innovations we have a series of accessories compatible with our PIC 99B automatic stuffing machine that has an automatic double casing tube change reducing drastically machine stops.”

She added, “Still on the same model, we have introduced an additional accessory, which allows to place automatically the cured meats produced directly on a trolley or frame and bring them to the seasoning room or to further production processes. We have also developed and improved our TM200 tying machine which operates on single knot and continuous tying products.”

“Our new TS 800 semi-automatic stuffing machine, with high productivity with net and synthetic casing, allows to significantly improve the operational effectiveness of our customers for stuffing products. Therefore, there are more news – our company looks constantly at development both for business culture and for our customers push, who are constantly searching for innovative equipment.”

We want to strengthen our presence and our brand on the market despite the difficult period.”

“Although digital tools are useful and it is right to adapt to the current needs of distancing, the “in presence” part has another impact and human contact plays a fundamental role at the business level. Meeting people, not hugging them but at least seeing them, and getting to talk again is a very important aspect of the fair to make lasting networks with existing and potential customers.”

We did not face a stop, but of course we have registered a slowdown despite our customers have never stopped. We all believe that this is a temporary situation, although is lasting long, and as soon as customers feel more secure, they will make again investments that are almost already planned, returning to constantly grow with us.”
