Which Tempering Machine to Purchase: FBM, Gami, Selmi or Wheel type
Posted in: Opinion
i don't understand 100% the question.
I have worked in the past with Selmi in a shop, and i didn't found them great.
Beautiful: yes, good working condition: yes, a bit too pricey for my budget:yes
Then when i was ready to buy a machine i accidently stood on FBM webpage, contact them, and Selmi at same time.
FBM responded immediately and they have been very helpful no matter how big or small my business was. It took a whole year before i could buy a machine: first plan was the small AURA, then it became Prima and although no deal was closed they never gave up on me.
Till last year: the business got a big kick and we had money to buy one.
We live in South Africa, not really around the corner of Italy, so i had to be 100% sure that if a machine breaks i would be able to fix it with what is available here.
South African Engineer are some of the best in the world, so instead of computerized machinery i choose a machine (FBM) that could be fixed here easily (IF I WOULD HAVE PROBLEM, THAT I NEVER HAD).
As well my engineer uses the same motors/mechanic supplier that FBM uses, so it was perfect!
With Selmi, we are interested in a machine that FBM doesn't make. If we will close a deal with them? i don't know: Wishes and money are not best friends!
So, would i be happy in the same way with Selmi? i will not know, simply because i do not have one of their machine to: a) work with it every day b) running her to the limit and beyond, c) open the "hood" and see if my MacGyver skills are useful.
As Italian, i can't be happier! Two Italian Companies are the most requested around the world of Chocolate!
