One more edition, AUTELEC Tecnología will attend the International Olive Oil and Related Industries Fair with its own stand to show its packaging equipment and electronic engineering solutions at the service of the olive oil sector. In its eagerness to improve its equipment, following its line of manufacturing robust and durable products that also stand out for their energy efficiency, the Valencian company will present its new packaging machine, the DL-295 model, at Expoliva 2023.

With 44 years of presence in the market, AUTELEC Tecnología is an electronic engineering company dedicated to the design and manufacture of equipment and machinery applied to the agri-food industry and specialized in the food sector. olive oil that enjoys a well-deserved prestige thanks to the quality, innovation and reliability of its equipment, designed to last over time. In 2023, the Valencian firm celebrates a decade since it moved to its current headquarters in the town of La Pobla de Vallbona. A new stage marked by generational change and sustained growth, without losing sight of its main hallmarks and always maintaining close contact with the numerous customers who throughout all these years have placed their trust in the brand.

Vicente Carot, manager of AUTELEC Tecnología, remembers that “we have been loyal to Expoliva since those first editions that were held in the military installations, at the entrance to Jaén. For us Expoliva is the fair par excellence of the olive sector and represents an excellent opportunity to meet again with our friends and clients, as well as the best showcase to present our products and new developments.”

Once the pandemic is over, Carot considers that the XXI edition of the International Olive Oil and Related Industries Fair represents the definitive return to normality and is convinced that Expoliva 2023 “will mean a before and after.”

Energy efficiency, durability and maintenance

The company will take advantage of the celebration of this edition to launch a renewed version of the DL-294 Plus packaging machine, the new DL-295, with which the Valencian firm is committed to improving its energy efficiency as a priority objective. “We live in times where the incessant rise in energy is becoming a very important part of the production cost – says Carot – and, therefore, we made it a priority to reduce the consumption of the new DL-295. Well, we have managed to reduce it by almost 50% compared to the previous model, achieving 95% energy savings with the ECO operating mode and thus helping our customers to reduce their carbon footprint and be more efficient. energetically.” Another aspect that distinguishes the equipment designed and manufactured by AUTELEC Tecnología is, without a doubt, durability. In this regard, Vicente Carot maintains that “the planet needs durable equipment that does not have to be discarded in the short term, with adjusted maintenance and consumption. Our first packaging machines have already far exceeded 30 years of operation, thus contributing to reducing the waste caused by other machines that become obsolete in a few years, which requires their replacement, generating not only an expense that is sometimes unnecessary, but an amount of waste that, in our opinion, could be avoided or considerably reduced.”

On the other hand, the firm has always been committed to the maintenance of all its equipment, which, today, is guaranteed with all the spare parts necessary for its correct functioning. In this way, the decision to purchase a new one based solely on the modernization and improvement of its functions, and not on the obligation to replace it for reasons of planned obsolescence of the machine, is left in the hands of the client who has an old machine in use. equipment. “The simplest thing,” explains Carot, “would be to stop providing service to those equipment that has been in operation for more than 30 years, but, quite the contrary, our policy has been and continues to be to strive to continue maintaining them at full capacity, understanding that The decision to replace them should always rest with the owner and not the manufacturer. Thus, each client can assess their situation and resources to make the decision to acquire or maintain their equipment. We understand that other brands, due to their structure, cannot continue supporting their equipment, their obsolescence not always being intentional, but forced by external elements.”

With the launch of its new DL-295 packaging machine, the Valencian firm is committed to improving energy efficiency as a priority objective

In this sense, at AUTELEC Tecnología they have always opted for having total control of their products, “which allows us not only to maintain them for many years, but also to be able to integrate improvements and updates to older equipment.”

The company has national suppliers that provide greater security of supply, in addition to helping to keep the industrial fabric active. For all this, it seems essential that the effort to continue providing service to all your equipment, regardless of how old it is, corresponds to good maintenance of the same, “since many times the situation of the machines could be improved with a few simple tips and instructions, so we always recommend that you contact us. We have a free telephone technical service that will clarify any questions you may have. Furthermore, our R&D Department is in charge of offering different solutions to our clients and advising them on their needs, sometimes creating personalized equipment,” concludes the manager of AUTELEC Tecnología, who encourages you to visit stand F-4 of the Interior Pavilion. “to be able to check first-hand the operation of the new DL-295 filling oil, as we have done in all previous editions.”

Autelec Technology, electronic engineering at the service of olive oil

By Autelec NewsNo Comments

Founded in 1979, Autelec is a company with 100% Spanish capital dedicated to the design and manufacture of electronic equipment and machinery applied to the agri-food industry specialized in the oil sector de oliva, in which it enjoys a well-deserved prestige thanks to the quality, innovation and reliability of its equipment. The Valencian company faces a new stage with changes in management but with the same illusion as always to offer the best service and professional advice to the olive oil and olive sector.

Historically linked to the agri-food market, Autelec was born as an engineering company dedicated to designing and manufacturing equipment for third parties whose scope of activity included sectors such as the bakery or the fruit and vegetable industry, developing weighing and netting equipment for fruits and vegetables, as well as continuous fruit sorters or classifiers according to their weight and color (1987). In this field, Autelec was a pioneer in the design and development in Spain of equipment equipped with microprocessors with 100% Spanish hardware and software.

In 1989, the company began a new and exciting stage by stopping working for third parties and creating its own line of products aimed at the olive oil market, having Since then, more than 2,000 units have been marketed. The list of projects developed by Autelec includes the determination of oil content for olives, pomace and other products (1989); probable alcohol meter in grape must (1992); meter of the quantity of oil produced by the extractors in mills (1993); low-resolution measuring equipment -low frequency- of magnetic-nuclear resonance to determine the oil content in olives (1998), developed in collaboration with the Institute of Physics & Bucharest Nuclear Engineering and Ainia Technology Center (1998); moisture and fat analyzer for oilseeds (Ahurigo) by near infrared NIR (2002), in collaboration with Ainia; or the Olicematic project, developed within the Seventh Framework Program of the European Commission (2009).

Currently, the equipment that Autelec designs, manufactures and sells for the olive oil sector are the MG-707 olive fat and acidity content meter, the of production of oil extraction plant CP-504/USB and the machinery for the packaging of olive oil DL-194 and DL-294. All of them share the characteristics that have made the Valencian company a reference brand for the olive oil and olive sector: great precision, high quality, easy to use, high reliability and easy installation, always with innovation as the flag and at the forefront of new technologies.

The MG-707 fat and acidity content meter is a system that guarantees great accuracy, allowing a real evaluation of the olives at reception to be carried out in just a few minutes to know its performance, without weighing or drying the sample, thus avoiding handling errors. Despite its longevity, the MG-707 continues to be the benchmark for measuring equipment, even the most innovative ones, which use it as a standard as it is one of the most accurate and reliable that can be found on the market. to be able to calibrate and check said devices.

For its part, the CP-504/USB oil mill controller provides complete information on the oil production of the mill in kilos and liters, available via a USB device. In this way, with the campaign totalizer it is possible to obtain the total oil produced up to that moment, while the partial counter allows the values ​​to be set to zero when desired, in addition to knowing the oil that is introduced into each storage tank, or the amount of oil produced by a certain batch of olives. Likewise, the instantaneous production, the average and the campaign average, all of them in kg./hour, indicate the proper functioning of the oil mill so that, in the event that the instantaneous flow decreases, the cause can be found and solutions adopted.

The semi-automatic packaging machine, one of Autelec’s flagship products, has undergone a thorough review in 2014 with a view to its improvement, a process that will go through in the short and medium the rest of the equipment that makes up the catalog of the Valencian company, although in the case of the MG-707 analyzer -and despite the attempts of other brands to introduce faster and simpler methods- this model is still currently the most competitive thanks to its accuracy and repeatability in the analysis.

The new DL-294 packaging-dosing machine, which will be presented at the XVII Montoro Olive Fair, is the main novelty of Autelec for 2014. Ideal for glass, cans, plastic or ceramic, this machine is better suited to filling small-format containers, standing out for its versatility, since in just a few seconds it allows the quantity of oil to be bottled to be varied between 0.01 and 10 liters with a resolution of 0.001 l ., In addition to being suitable for miniatures, it can be used for multi-capacity containers without the need for any adjustment. Likewise, the equipment is equipped with an effective anti-drip system to prevent the containers from getting dirty, while its weight dosing system guarantees high precision, while eliminating possible errors caused by different viscosities and temperatures. Finally, the machine incorporates an automatic and continuous adjustment that allows you to check the amount packed and make the appropriate corrections if necessary.


Export vocation and renewed management


Throughout its 35-year history, Autelec has changed its headquarters on various occasions, but what has never changed is its firm purpose of offering its customers the best possible service and advice in order to fully satisfy their needs, even referring them to other companies if they need it. At present, its new facilities located in the Mas de Tous industrial estate in La Pobla de Vallbona have a larger area dedicated to the workshop, which in this new stage has become a priority with respect to space for offices and offices, thus reversing the distribution established in its previous location in Alfafar.

Autelec Tecnología equipment is sold throughout Spain, especially in olive oil-producing areas, where the company also provides technical service for all its machinery. Likewise, the company has a free telephone service both in Spain and in the rest of the world, attended by qualified technicians whose sole objective is to solve any doubt or incident that may arise in relation to the equipment.

The company’s client portfolio is made up of nearly 1,200 clients in Spain and another 300 throughout the world, in destinations such as Portugal, Argentina, Morocco, Italy, France , Albania, Austria, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, Mexico, Tunisia, Turkey, India or the USA. And it is that Autelec also attaches special importance to export. Thus, around 50% of the manufactured equipment travels abroad, in these cases delegating technical assistance to its distributors.

The company is currently facing a new stage with a renewed management that successfully mixes the experience of one of its partners, Vicente Carot, with a long history of almost 30 years in the firm, and the drive -and continuity- represented by the youth of Raúl Martínez, the company’s other partner. It should be noted that the current Autelec staff, although specialized in the tasks of their respective Departments, has extensive knowledge of each and every one of the functions and activities of the company, a policy that allows them to face any specific task that requires a solution at specific times. immediate. Likewise, some of the former Autelec workers have established themselves as distributors of the company’s products, offering their services to certain clients.

Since its inception, Autelec has attended all editions of the Olive Tree Fair in Montoro, Expoliva in Jaén or the now-defunct SIO in Reus as an exhibitor. As Vicente Carot points out, “in all of them the fact that we carried out live demonstrations with our packaging machine has always attracted great attention, but the absolute confidence in the quality and precision of our products is what allows us to do it, so that all visitors can appreciate its accuracy, the absence of dripping and other characteristics that make us a benchmark in this sector”
