Building the perfect ice machine has never been easy, but inside-of-the-box thinking is just what you've come to expect from Manitowoc Ice.
With the introduction of the Q-Series we were the first to create an aesthetically designed line of ice machines that redefined the category. With the creation of QuietQube technology-we were first in establishing a new category of innovative remote condensing. The S-Series were the first ice machines designed to meet the demanding criteria for Sanitation established by NSF/ANSI Standard 12-2003.
The introduction of the Indigo Series in 2011 showed another huge leap forward. Intelligent Diagnostics provide constant and reliable monitoring of refrigeration systems. In turn, that information is used to improve energy management, set proper productions levels, streamline cleaning processes, ease food safety concerns, maintain ice quality and quickly display up to date service information.
At the NAFEM show in 2013 Manitowoc Ice rolled out the impressive NEO Undercounter, the everywhere you need ice machine. The NEO provides new levels in performance, Intelligence and convenience, in an all-in-one solution.
