Important Storci Spa press release

Press release on the legal dispute concerning Storci’s STF TV dough sheeter:

With reference to the articles published in the following reviews: "Pastaria" issue of July  2012, "Tecniche Alimentari" issue of September 2012 and "Tecnalimentaria" issue of March 2013, where the dough rolling MKVS machine for pasta offered by Pavan S.r.l. was advertised, Storci S.p.A. informs that during the preliminary injunction proceeding that was pending between both companies before the Court of Venice    it was acknowledged that Pavan S.r.l. did not produce nor sold such machine.

Storci S.p.A. informs to be the owner of two patents concerning total vacuum technology applied to dough rolling apparatus for preparation of pasta (the Italian patent no. 132296 filed on April 21, 2000 and registered on April 31, 2004 entitled ‘Vacuum dough rolling apparatus for alimentary past and dough rolling method’ and the European patent no. 1642503 B1 filed on October 4, 2005 and registered on March 14, 2012 entitled ‘Vacuum dough rolling apparatus’). Therefore Storci S.p.A. enjoys the exclusive right deriving from these patents and is the only company that can legally produce, market and advertise the dough rolling machines having the total vacuum technology. Storci S.p.A. will defend this exclusive right against any unauthorized use of the patented technical solution.

International seminar on pasta in Istanbul. We were there!

On April 6, 2013, the Seminar entitled “Recent developments in the world pasta sector” was held in Istanbul.
This event, organized by Avenue Media Conference & Expo and Parantez, was held at the Expo Center in Istanbul, within the scope of the IDMA trade fair.
Prestigious speakers included the President of the Association of Turkish Pasta Manufacturers, Dr. Murat Bozkurt, while Alessio Marchesani was there on our behalf with a contribution dedicated to fresh pasta and ready meals.
His presentation focused on the importance of fresh pasta, in a country in which manti, the famous national pasta, is a typical example, demonstrating how the production of fresh pasta today is giving increasing importance to the question of local tastes.
Thanks to its ingredients, this type of pasta has indisputable advantages, such as, for example, rapid cooking times and a balanced nutritional intake. It is, therefore, a valid alternative to dry pasta.

WD presses: 100% washable

Our USDA-washdown presses are a guarantee

When aiming to export to the USA, machinery must observe the very strict FDA and USDA standards: washdown is the right word.
Here at Storci we give this aspect a great deal of thought; systems are conceived in such a way as to allow for regular and constant manual cleaning, using construction materials which are resistant to the aggressive action of the chemical agents and/or steam used during sanitization procedures.
Washdown is the process of cleaning surfaces which come into contact with foodstuffs from top to bottom, usually by means of detergent solutions applied using a high-pressure jet cleaner. Which is why all the machinery, the mechanical and electrical components of the Storci “WD” series are designed to resist high-pressures as well as water and various chemical solutions.
Storci “WD” offers the best investments in automation and construction quality to provide a maximum guarantee against the sale of contaminated products; furthermore, as well as gains in food safety, products also have a longer shelf-life meaning greater opportunities for sales in markets further away, such as the already mentioned United States.

Storci: offering our clients energy savings in the name of ethics and sustainability

Storci has for some time now been installing the Beltmix: this is the most interesting innovation of the last few years in terms of dough preparation technology. The Beltmix replaces the traditional shaft and blade mixing tank thanks to its pairing with the Premix® pre-mixing unit and a patented slow-moving accumulation conveyor for the dough rest period. This mixing system marks a significant technological step forward for dried, fresh, egg and special ingredient (spinach, tomato, etc.) pasta.
Simone Storci: “This technology improves the result making it possible to obtain better quality pasta with a better colour and offers production management with more efficient product changeover, cleanliness and hygiene. All this with energy savings ranging from ten to thirty times less consumption compared to traditional mixing tanks.
"180 Beltmix systems, 73,000,000 kw/h saved, the equivalent of 44,000 barrels of oil saved - which is like giving away a year's worth of free energy for a whole town with 350,000 inhabitants. The mean savings for a 3000 kg/h line is approximately € 21,000 a year.”

Cibus 2012 enthralled with Pastai Graganesi, using Storci technology

Presentation of the “Gran Riccioli”

The stand of Pastai Gragnanesi Società Cooperativa was a huge success with the public
at the 2012 edition of Cibus.
The trade fair was the occasion for presenting a new shape “Gran Riccioli”, which extends the already ample range of this pasta maker, a company capable of producing the typical Gragnano specialty pasta of superior quality, in business since 1980.
It is a shape that is ideal for adults, who will find it delicious, and fun for children, with its particular spiral shape, like a corkscrew. In addition, Gran Riccioli pasta is particularly versatile and perfect to capture various types of sauce.
All also thanks to the technological support of the lines produced by Storci, a company now well known for the high professional level, reliability and excellent quality of its machines and production lines.
Here is what the Chairman Giovanni D’Avino says: "It was just the introduction of the new Storci lines that enabled us to implement the renewal of our production. They worked side by side with us to understand our production needs, and the result was outstanding. We consider Storci a very reliable partner".
And also…."With them we are able to maintain the tradition and quality of the master pasta makers".

Robotized automatic tray stacker/destacker

Innovation by Storci Spa

Yet another innovation has been developed by Storci S.p.A. for the purpose of automating the pasta production lines with drying in cells.
Devised to continuously feed empty trays from the trolley to the feeder at the start of the lines for short-cut pasta, lasagna and nests, the robotized handling system has three axes and a special multi-tray pick-up unit. It is used for trays of variable height such as those for short-cut pasta or for lasagne, and can be perfectly incorporated in Storci lines that are already in place or currently under construction. It can also be incorporated in the lines of other manufacturers.
The new design, the use of new materials, the technical solutions adopted and the particularly sturdy framework have enabled Storci to construct a machine that is safe and hard-wearing, easy to clean and very low-maintenance.
The same system has been studied and installed at the end of the line for loading the pasta-filled trays onto the trolley, which will then be conveyed to the drying cell.
The only manual action required is to insert the tray-holding trolley in the safety cage at the start and/or end of the line; thanks to the dedicated PLC, a single operator will be able to manage the entire line, avoiding potential line downtime and maximizing return on investments in next to no time.

Technology develops new ways to enjoy fresh pasta. In Italy and abroad

Round table at Ipack-Ima 2012 in Milan

Pasta producers and pasta technology companies met to discuss the future of fresh pasta; Giovanni Rana delighted the large audience on hand with his stories, impressions and especially with his advice.
Alessio Marchesani - Storci – stressed how social change worldwide is affecting the way our traditional products are consumed. People are traveling more and when they return to their homes, anywhere in the world, many of them want to continue to enjoy Italian food. For the pasta producers, there is an obvious need for «integrated support» in order to achieve extra-national goals: new technologies, new recipes, adaptation to local tastes can be supported by solid companies with experience and skill.
Fresh pasta is definitely one of those products that should be a real pleasure to eat, a highly prized product that satisfies  «the taste test». The demands of the Italian and foreign markets require concrete answers.
Storci offers its experience and modern technologies to enable the pasta producers to expand their markets and profits. Customized projects, specific automation, the consultant services of its experts are earning Storci increased interest and success all over the world.
“Perhaps some of our entrepreneurs will anticipate the trend of consumption abroad, particularly in the Asian countries, investing there with our culture to produce fresh Italian pasta locally,” concludes Alessio Marchesani.

Apple at Storci-Fava's service

DOC technology for Storci at Ipack Ima 2012

A perfect combination of appearance and functionality, this defines the trend for the Fava/Storci group at Ipack Ima 2012.  Here we had the opportunity to explore the whole world of APPLE, bringing innovative aspects to our stands, making us pioneers in the use of this kind of technology. No less then 14 Apple TVs installed and distributed over 800 m², all placed at the disposal of customers and sales staff.  Any query, from simple curiosity to mere technical information, was immediately answered using images and data sent to a screen; use of paper was relegated to a secondary role. By means of a network and the use of Mac computers, it was possible to show photos and videos on the monitor screens. With the help of iPhoto, photograph albums were created containing everything necessary: everyone was able to manage the photo libraries held in the system using an iPhone or iPad. A direct and immediate connection contributed to the overall success, as well as a technological network able to support a great deal of material with enormous flexibility of control on each individual screen. Here are a few figures, just to give a general idea of the situation:  2 Mac Minis,  1 MacBook pro,  2 AirPort Extremes and 14 Apple TVs. Each single Mac was loaded with 1100 photos and 20 film and video clips, all ready for use. Everything worked to perfection thanks to the technological support provided by Personal System Apple Premium Reseller from Parma and Storci’s internal resources.
We parted ways knowing that for us the world of Apple no longer holds any secrets! But now another challenge awaits us: Ipack Ima/Expo 2015.
