Scotsman breaks the mould with new, high capacity slim-fitting icemaker

10th of November 2017

NW1408, available through Hubbard Systems, combines compact design with an unrivalled output


Hubbard Systems has launched a new Scotsman ice machine capable of producing almost 700kg of ice per day, yet able to fit into the industry standard 760mm (30”) wide format.  This latest member of the NW Series, the NW 1408, is known as the Slim Fitter.  It breaks new ground in being the market’s only 30” machine capable of producing such a high volume of ice.

The NW 1408 is one of Scotsman’s vertical evaporator range of products.  A modular machine, sitting on top of a separate ice bin, it makes either full-sized 12g dice ice cubes or 6g half dice ice cubes.

Alongside its ability to slot into small spaces, the Slim Fitter is kitted out with the latest Scotsman ice system technology, including the innovative and simple to operate ‘one touch’ cleaning system.  This makes it easy and effortless for staff to maintain the day-to-day hygiene of the machine.

“The NW 1408 is a truly remarkable ice maker,” says Simon Aspin, commercial director of Hubbard Systems.  “Being able to pack this much ice production into the industry standard 30” format is going to be a huge bonus for sites such as hotels and QSRs, that need more and more ice but have limited space.”
