(Rancilio Patent) The new totally automatic iSteam wand allows milk to be heated and frothed using a mix of steam and air, to obtain a soft and remarkably compact froth. The innovative water system makes it the most powerful steam wand currently on the market. It has two programme selection buttons: “Cappuccino”, to heat and froth the milk, or “Latte”, to heat the milk only. The smart electronic control system injects air according to the quantity of milk present in the pitcher, giving constant quality time after time. When the programmed temperature is reached, the iSteam stops automatically. The user can set the final temperature of the drink and the quantity of air to be emulsified for both programmes. The special stainless steel covering is heat-insulated to make it cool to the touch and extremely easy to clean.
(Rancilio Patent) The new steam valve with a special control knob and ergonomic design is complete with open-stay and open-close functions. The valve is operated by rotating the knob just 25°. Turning it upwards, it opens and remains in this position. By turning downwards, the user can regulate steam intensity. When released, the valve closes automatically.
(Rancilio Patent) The manual youSteam steam wand has two functions: heating and frothing milk. Its ergonomic shape and ease of use ensure consistently high quality foam for a cappuccino fit for a king. This steam wand provides 2 operating functions: heating alone or heating and frothing the milk at the same time.
(Rancilio Patent) The hot-water temperature control system for tea and infusions has 2 different temperatures and programmable dosages. Hot and cold water are mixed electronically to obtain the desired temperature. It stops automatically when the programmed dosage has been reached. Both the temperature and the quantity of water can be programmed for each setting mode using the software, without needing to open the machine.
The new steam wand is heat insulated to eliminate the risk of scalding and has a robust modern design that is adaptable to the style of any of the products in the range. Additionally, maximum hygiene and the greatest ease of handling are the other main characteristics of the Cool Touch milk wand.
ABM.07 (Advanced Boiler Management) is a specifically designed software developed to improve performance of the machine in conditions of intense use. When simultaneously brewing espresso, dispensing water and steaming milk, ABM.07 switches on the heating element to pre-empt any drops in temperature and ensure constant heating levels. The new sensors installed in Rancilio machines have made heat control even more precise and immediate. ABM.07 also allows control of the machine’s power absorption, reducing it to 2/3 of the normal value for locations with low power availability.
V-flex is a self-adapting system that harmonises the operating voltage of the machine with voltage variations in the main power supply. This function ensures error-free installation and prevents problems caused by fluctuations in the supply voltage.
Plug and Brew
(Rancilio Patent) The installation of a Rancilio machine is now even easier and faster. Thanks to Plug&Brew, dosages and the main functions of the machine can be programmed immediately.
Thanks to this new function, even machines without a display allow you to adjust boiler pressure using the control buttons.
Intelligent management of the brewing button provides fully automatic group cleaning. The LED light on the control panel indicates the need for routine maintenance. This function ensures an extraordinary brew quality and reduces daily cleaning times.
CONNECT is a solution projected to guarantee a punctual, independent and real-time control of the machine fleet in function. By way of authentication credentials, CONNECT shows a complete picture of coffee, water and wand daily consumptions; it permits to obtain detailed usage statistics; to observe technical problems and remote modify settings and parameters. A bi-directional intuitive and rapid connection that can be done with devices connected to the web (smartphone, tablet and pc).
The Rancilio LAB research and development laboratory has designed HYDRO HUB, an innovative ergonomic system for the comprehensive and integrated management of the hydraulic circuit for coffee machines. It is an innovative solution in the field of professional products for espresso, created with the aim of simplifying the performance of technical assistance operations while ensuring maximum ease and safety during maintenance.
The entire work area is lit by a series of energy-efficient white-light LEDs.
The excellent ergonomics of Classe 9 are perfectly reflected in the innovative control panel with quick response buttons. The large buttons and intuitive graphic interface ensure total control of machine functions.
The filter holder is fitted with a new ergonomic handle, designed to ensure the smooth movement of the barista’s wrist for maximum user comfort.
To make cleaning and maintenance easier, Rancilio has equipped all its products with a revolutionary work surface: the support grids come in a scratchproof polymer and can be removed to allow ease of washing in a dishwasher. Thanks to its efficient liquid collection system, Grid System keeps the work surface clean and protects cups against unsightly marks left by drops of coffee.
Thanks to the electric cup warmer, the cups can be kept at an optimum temperature, which is crucial for a quality espresso.
Pods and Caps
All Rancilio coffee machines are designed to be used with an Adaptor Kit (sold separately) for either pods or capsules of various types. This system allows a variety of blends and product types to be used, always ensuring an espresso with a quality aroma.
