FBM will be exhibiting at IBIE - the International Baking Industry Exposition - in Las Vegas, October 6th through 9th. If you are going to be there, plan to look us up in Booth 4337. I will personally be happy to introduce you to FBM equipment and FBM president Umberto Boscolo. I am already working with ChocolateLife members seriously interested in FBM equipment and they are getting hands-on training from Umberto and FBM's chief technician.
FBM will have the following pieces of equipment in the booth:
-) 4kg Aura continuous tempering machine*
-) 7kg Prima continuous tempering machine with enrobing belt*
-) 12kg Chocolab continuous tempering machine
-) 45kg Maestria continuous tempering machine
-) KLEEGO 50kg melter/35kg conche
-) TowerDrop dough depositing machine for baking applications
Show machines are offered at a 20% discount off of list prices and buyers pay customs clearance fees and shipping from Las Vegas (not from Italy). Machines will be shipped within a week of the show's completion - no long waits. Payment must be received in full by October 9th. ChocolateLife members who make a deposit on any FBM machine (not just those at the show) between October 6th and October 31st will receive 15% off the list prices, but must pay shipping and customs from Italy, and accept normal delivery times. These are various electrical configurations (220V single- and 3-phase, 60Hz), so contact Clay to determine the electrical configuration of each machine.
* The Aura and the Prima have already been sold (as of September 22, 2013).
Contact Clay Gordon if you are interested and to get catalog sheets.
I look forward to seeing you IBIE... which version of the Chocolab will be there?
The basic machine will be there - with the enrober belt (minus the takeoff section, which will be shipped after) and truffle tray, if I am not mistaken. There won't be a chiller or heater option installed in the cabinet. The mold loader is always available as an upgrade option.
Power will be 220V 3-phase.
