Launching the i-1406A


The latest addition to the Manitowoc Indigo range provides large scale ice production in a manageable package

Indigo SeriesThe Manitowoc i-1406A is the latest high capacity ice cube machine to be launched into the Indigo series. Designed to meet the needs of operators who need high quality ice in large quantities, it features advanced diagnostics and incorporates multiple improvements that guarantee consistently pure ice while making it easier to maintain and operate. The Indigo 1406A is now available.

The i-1406A is a modular ice maker, compatible with Manitowoc’s B-style range of storage bins, and is capable of making 709kg of ice per day. The Indigo range incorporates advanced diagnostic technology that monitors all aspects of ice production, ensuring maximum operating efficiency. It even has an acoustic sensor probe, which listens to the sound of the ice forming, guaranteeing consistently perfect operation even in hard water areas.

The i-1406 produces Manitowoc’s dice cubes, a hard, clear, slow-melting ice cube that provides maximum cooling and quick production. A half-dice model is also available.

The EasyRead display provides cleaning reminders and useful information regarding operating status at a glance. The Indigo series helps cut energy costs by allowing the user to schedule ice production levels by time of day, either taking advantage of off-peak energy rates or to keep pace with varying demand throughout the week.

Designed to be easy to clean, the i-1406A features a hinged front door for easy access and removable components for fast and efficient maintenance. Key components are made from AlphaSan antimicrobial material. The Duratech exterior provides resistance to corrosion while the stainless finish resists dirt and fingerprints. The optional patented LuminIce growth inhibitor controls the growth of bacteria and yeast in the food zone, keeping the ice pure and uncontaminated.

The i-1406A is 122cm wide, 62cm deep and 75cm high. It is backed by a comprehensive 3 year warranty and is available nationwide.
