New and used pasta production lines – one partner, a world of possibilities!

Production lines for tasty pasta in any variation

The production lines are the core of any pasta production facility. SME SCHMID offers all types of dry pasta production lines in any output capacity – used or new, or a combination of the two. We will be happy to provide you with information about the available production lines and advise you from the evaluation through to realisation.

Dryer for long-cut production line

Nidi machine

The output capacity of each production line ranges from very small amounts around 100 to 200 kilograms per hour, which are useful for laboratory purposes, to astronomical outputs of 9,000 kilograms per hour in short-cut pasta production and 5,000 kilograms per hour in long-cut pasta production.

The lower outputs are generally represented by manual production facilities.

  • Pasta press – shaking pre-dryer, possible as combination dryer for spaghetti pre-drying – static dryer, or possibly semi-automatic production lines
  • Pasta press – shaking pre-dryer – semi-automatic belt dryer for pre-drying and final drying

If static dryers are used, production of short-cut and long-cut pasta can be combined using the same pasta press.

The higher output capacities from 500 kilograms per hour are achieved exclusively with continuous fully automatic production lines.
