Rimini, 20 January 2018 - Sigep 2018 will be an unprecedented edition for Carpigiani, the historic Bolognese company and world leader in the manufacturing of equipment for artisanal gelato. Within its more than 1000 square meters of exhibition space in Hall C1 will be premiered the new Hard-O-Dynamic Adaptive technology that makes it possible to rewrite the rules of traditional recipe balancing, producing, for example, gelato and sorbets without added sugar. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the company's Research and Development division and the instructors of Carpigiani Gelato University, with batch freezers from the HE line (Maestro HE and Labotronic HE) and the Ideatre counter with incorporated batch freezer in separate tubs it will be possible to balance recipes until now considered impossible, with an average reduction in solids (sugars, fats, milk proteins, emulsifiers, fibers) of 40%. With this mode, for example, you can create a delicious and creamy strawberry sorbet that contains only the fruit's natural sugar and no other added sweetener.
More than 100 machines will be available for demonstrations with the assistance of Carpigiani technicians and instructors from Carpigiani Gelato University. Designed around a pathway that winds through special settings like a cocktail bar, a pizzeria, a kiosk on the beach and areas dedicated to demonstrations, the exhibition space will present the best technology and new solutions for businesses.
A new area is dedicated to Carpigiani Gelato University - Foodservice Professionals, the training program launched in 2017 and based in London with a mission to develop new skills for chefs and pastry chefs of restaurants, hotels, catering & banqueting, including gelato in the menu from the most elaborate desserts to savory dishes. The world of gelato pastry is featured in the area of ​​Gelato Pastry University, the world's first such school, established in 2015 in Tokyo to develop a new segment in the pastry sector and spread the culture of artisanal gelato.

New developments revealed at Sigep 2018 regarding Carpigiani Professional and Carpigiani Chain Solutions
A technology that evolves and becomes intelligent to ensure the best result for artisanal gelato artisans all over the world, this is what visitors will find in the Carpigiani Professional area dedicated to artisan gelato will find. Among the new developments the Hard-O-Dynamic Adaptive technology, the latest evolution of Carpigiani well-known consistency control system, with which it is possible to freeze gelato recipes that up until now were considered impossible, with an average reduction of 40% of the total solids using batch freezers of the HE line and on Ideatre. Great emphasis also on pasteurizers equipped with an exchange pump cup, a technology patented by Carpigiani that allows superior micronization of the mixture with a surprising reduction of the fat globules, reaching a size of 2-5 microns.
Ideatre is also the cornerstone of a methodology designed for pastry chefs and gelato artisans who want to enhance their creativity by simplifying operations at points of sale, entrusting production to their employees without sacrificing high quality. Based on this idea, Carpigiani launched an area dedicated to the concept of "Centralized Mix Production" with a shelf life of 15 days. Technicians will be available to illustrate the financial and logistical advantages for entrepreneurs who supply multiple points of sale like cafés, pizzerias, and restaurants.
One of the new developments in the world of soft gelato is ParadICE, the new concept for soft gelato flavored using capsule technology developed in collaboration with Sarong, world leader in the production of coffee pods. Operation is simple: the customer purchases the desired flavor capsule at the cash register, places it in the machine, and the gelato is ready to be enjoyed. Also of interest is the 161 G SP, a compact counter-top soft machine with vertical ventilation flow (air intake from the base and vertical venting) so that it can be easily situated among other retail foodservice equipment and easily maintained. Standing out among the various settings is the beach kiosk with the new 193 GP, equipped with pump and gravity system for recipes of different densities to taste a mix of light and refreshing gelatos and sorbets.
