Manitowoc Neo Series: The Everywhere You Need Ice Machine

There’s no red pill/blue pill choice when it comes to Manitowoc ice machines. Their NEO series of undercounter machines were built in the real world – not the Matrix – and deliver supreme efficiency, convenience and value to your foodservice restaurant or institution.

Neo Means ‘New’

Simple yet powerful, Manitowoc’s NEO undercounter ice machines were designed as a new approach to ice production. Engineers looked to improve three categories: Performance, Intelligence and Convenience. The result was the “everywhere you need ice machine.”

The Simplicity of the NEO Control Panel

The Simplicity of the NEO Control Panel

Performance – Engineers designed the NEO series with enhanced durability and reliability, redesigning components including their proprietary evaporator technology that achieves an average reduction in energy use of 10% and a 22% reduction in water use. A redesigned door and new “easy to service” modular design continued the innovations. Production capabilities now range from 132 to 304 lbs. per 24 hours and industry leading bin capacities maximize your value in a small, under-counter space.

Intelligence – The NEO series machines are more than just a pretty face. Engineers added a powerful operator panel to the front of the machine, allowing easy control and monitoring over the machine. In addition to an illuminated on/off button, a delay function allows you to pause ice production up to 24 hours for slow periods or days when you are closed. A clean button activates that cycle and remains lit to notify all of that status. The bin level indicator shows whether the bin is empty or full in three levels without opening the lid. Finally, a service indicator warns the operator in advance of potential problems that can cause downtime. Manitowoc also realized that today’s foodservice workforce is diverse, so they moved to universally recognized display icons that are easy to understand no matter what language is spoken.

Convenience – NEO’s size means it is convenient for many applications. All NEO machines have a 38-1/2″ height, making them perfect for use in kitchen or under bar counters or as a stand-alone unit in churches, office break rooms or other occasional use environments. Base units are 28″ wide, with the higher capacity machines adding just 2 inches of width. The included ice scoop is stored inside the sealed food-zone bin for added safety. Finally, service and maintenance is a snap with a forward-sliding storage bin and easy access to refrigeration components without having to move the entire ice machine.
