Milan, October 20th - 24th 2017
From October 20th to 24th La Spaziale will be at Host with two great news: the technological and aesthetic upgrade of the machines S8 and S9 DSP and the introduction of the connectivity system.

The well established presence of La Spaziale at Host gets even stronger this year: we will present the new S8-S9 DSP at our stand K50 L39 (Hall 24). Considering the great success and the growing demand for this model all over the world, La Spaziale has decided to combine the technological upgrade of these machines to a real restyling of 2, 3, 4 group versions to make them more attractive and in accordance with the furnishings and chromatics of the modern coffee locations. We have therefore added lateral trims with RGB lights changing color according to machine status and LED lights to illuminate the coffee preparation area, making sure to avoid a false chromatic perception of coffee in the cup. With the aim to modernize the look of this series, we have also redesigned the lines of the back and lateral cup guards to increase the capacity of the upper cup tray and the coffee dose touch buttons on the front panel of the machines. The previous temperature led bargraph has been replaced by a display which allows the immediate visualization of the operating parameters of the machine and a better interaction with the user through a series of symbols corresponding to the various functions activated.

As for the technological upgrade, the greatest new feature is the introduction of Eco function, which comes out as result of the need to reduce the energy consumption of the machine. Pushing the Eco button, the barista will be able to bring the machine to an Economy saving status, thus reducing energy consumption of about 15%. This new feature will be added to pre-set hot water delivery function with the possibility to add as optional the temperature regulation for tea and infusions, known abroad with the term “Economizer”. This feature allows to mix hot water coming from the boiler with cold water coming from water mains to obtain the correct temperature for the preparation of tea and infusions thus contributing to a significant energy save. The new S8-S9 DSP is also equipped with an electronic temperature sensor of latest generation so as to grant the utmost and most accurate temperature control and consistency of the machine.

The introduction of Spazio_net function

In addition to these updates, we will present at Host a new function: the innovative connectivity system which will involve the series S5 and S8-S9 DSP 2, 3, 4 groups. A well thought choice to launch this function on the products of the middle series to make it immediately more accessible to a wider audience.

It is the introduction of a technology which will allow to geolocalize La Spaziale coffee machines and to remotely control parameters, functions, settings and possible malfunctions. This will be possible thanks to a router inside the machine which will capture the data and will send them to a web platform to whom the roaster, technical service and La Spaziale will have access through their own credentials. In this way they will be able to analyze the data basing on their specific requirements and directly import the machine parameters to handle and better control their performances.

Thanks to Spazio_net the roasters will be able to constantly monitor the status of their machines, counting even the precise number of coffee extractions delivered every day so as to plan and program stock and coffee deliveries. Furthermore they will be able to make sure deliveries are correct to promptly act on the quality of the product delivered. They will then be constantly informed on possible malfunctions and in case of any damage, they will be able to plan maintenance service more efficiently. In case, for example, they should be notified a problem with an incorrect coffee delivery, they will be able to solve it by remotely modifying the parameters of the machine, even before calling technical service.

As for technical service, technicians will be able to receive an immediate feedback on the machine status (possible alarms or malfunctions ) so as to be able to promptly arrange for service or scheduled maintenance, thus granting utmost efficiency and profitability. The owners of coffee locations or coffee chains will have the opportunity to analyze consumption data, work load and operation time of the equipment, making an analysis of productivity and profitability of their own business.

This system has been finalized by the Research and Development Team after years of collecting feedback and inquiries from clients, roasters and distributors around the world whose purpose was to find a way to be able to handle with better efficiency their volume of machines, granting them control, consistency and quality which has always been the main commitment of la Spaziale. At the stand of the Bolognaise company at Host we will a S9 DSP coffee machine on display connected to this system. In this way the machine data will be more closely visualized and we will be able to “live” demonstrate all the procedures that can be performed thanks to the system Spazio_net.
