Amica Chips Turns to Simionato, Prefers Logic for Bagging

by Lacy Cooper | Jan 07, 2015

Popular Italian chip company, AMICA CHIPS, relies on Logic to meet required speeds

AMICA CHIPS can be found anywhere and everywhere in Italy. Founded in 1990, AMICA CHIPS is based in Castiglione delle Stiviere, close to the biggest lake in Italy, Garda Lake. The company most recently purchased Simionato’s Logic 35 bagger with ATOM radial combination weigher to package a new product line of Alfredo chips; the product’s namesake is from Alfredo Moratti, one of the company’s two founders.

Currently, AMICA CHIPS has more than 30 Simionato systems installed, with the typical combination of a double Logic bagger system integrated with RCW 8+8 Boost scales. Mr. Alfredo Moratti, President of AMICA CHIPS comments on the lasting relationship that has grown over the years, “We have been working with Simionato for 20 years and continue to rely on them today. AMICA CHIPS is one of the leaders in Italy due to our great people, products, and efficiencies. We have evaluated many types of packaging equipment technologies and have found Simionato to be the most reliable technology and service partner for us. Today we have more than 30 Simionato packaging systems running around the clock 7 days per week producing precise weight bags that look great on our customers’ shelves.”

AMICA CHIPS has recently invested significantly in their manufacturing processes to position for the future. Product weighing and packaging is a critical part of Amica’s process. Mr. Giovanni Bruschi, Technical Director of AMICA CHIPS adds, “Our production people want nothing other than Simionato systems, given their reliability and simplicity of operation.  Simionato continues to meet our innovation needs  and I know I can rely on them for our future developments.”
