Nest Pasta & Special Shapes


Nest Pasta Lines

Nest Pasta lines manufactured by Tecalit stand out for their technology and engineering reliability and for being user friendly. Tecalit can supply Nest Pasta lines having a production capacity ranging from 200 kg/h to 1,200 kg/h.

The Nest Pasta line can be designed to also produce short-cutpasta, so as to offer high flexibility to the client, and to allow easy return on investment, especially when opening a new pasta factory. From the technical point of view, both Nest Pasta and Short-Cut Pasta share the same type of press and dryer, so a short-cut pasta press head, a cutter, a shaker and pre-drying unit must be added. These machines are added in parallel to allow the production of Short Pasta.

The Dryer is designed to support Short Pasta production with Special Shapes (Paccheri, large Fusilli, Gigli, Pennoni, etc..), ensuring excellent air distribution and long drying time.


Production capacity ranging from 200 to 1200 kg/h
