Tecnopool, known for specializing in the entire food processing chain, extends focus in areas such as custom solutions, as it integrates resources and new innovative drives for further growth.
Michele Capuzzo, a Tecnopool engineer specialized in refrigeration technology, who has recently joined the research and development department, tells us: “Today, customizing a plant doesn’t necessarily mean higher costs. As we are increasingly operating at a total processing level, combining the advantages of customization with those of standardization has been very effective. At first glance, both approaches, standard and custom, might seem opposite, but they are absolutely compatible: in fact, customization does not always mean reinventing everything from scratch. In the case of cooling, for example, we have analyzed our projects and devised a standard system for combining spirals and evaporators, with a modular approach that offers various advantages.”
On the one hand, customers can have access to price-competitive, high-quality equipment, thanks to the simpler design and rationalization of production. On the other hand, customers obtain the most suitable system for their production needs, which translates into better performance and lower line operating costs.
Capuzzo explains that the company has made a competitive leap in the quality of its refrigeration technology, integrating the evaporator into the system design instead of resorting to standard machines from external suppliers or designing a special machine every time.
Furthermore, reducing energy consumption with optimized systems makes companies more sustainable, not just economically, which rightly pleases the customer, but also from an environmental point of view.
“Open and continuous dialogue with the customer is clearly essential to provide truly advantageous advice, not only in designing but also in managing the system throughout its entire life cycle,” Capuzzo points out.
These are cases of routine assistance for Tecnopool, the engineer explains, which nonetheless show how customer support is an increasingly decisive factor for food processing companies when choosing a partner. The skills gained in the field can help customers understand what they need and how to obtain it, how to improve performance and consumption and be both sustainable and competitive.
