In episode 2 of season 3, presenters of the BBC’s ‘Inside the Factory’ visited a pasta manufacturer in Italy, to see the innovative equipment and processes that feature behind closed doors of the world’s leading dried pasta factory.
The factory, which produces 60% of all pasta made in Italy and supplies 3,000 tonnes of the product to the UK each year, is an example of manufacturing excellence.
One of the key items of machinery showcased in this BBC programme, is the Indeva Liftronic manipulator, which is employed to assist with the lifting of cheese wheels.
Presenter Cherry Healey is given the opportunity to try the lifting equipment for herself and due to its ease of use and innovative lifting features, the well-known host has no trouble lifting a block of cheese weighing 30kg. She exclaims “This weighs 30kg? It feels as though it weighs nothing!”

In this particular instance, the introduction of a Liftronic has several benefits –
