The screw feeder, rotating about its axis,
will push them forwards and against the screen.
The juice will come out of the holes in the
screen and fall into the trough which conveys it to your
collection receptacle, while the seeds and peels are eliminated
through the small opening on the end of the screen.
It is possible to put the seeds and the
skins back into the hopper in order to obtain an improved
Unique Fabio Leonardi Feature: Gasket-less operation - most tomato milling machines utilize a gasket in between the screen and the body of the tomato processing head. Gaskets become dry, cracked, carry bacteria, and need to be replaced repeatedly over time. The Fabio Leonardi machines eliminated the gasket and instead designed the chute to capture the juice through the threads of the screen attachment. One of those seemingly logical things most companies should have figured out but only comes with over 100 years of tomato milling experience: We are capturing juice, why prevent the juice from flowing - just capture it!

As the premier distributor of Fabio Leonardo
products in the USA I felt it was important to visit the factory
and stand toe to toe with those that carry the commitment of
quality in a company so rich in it's tradition of quality. I did
just that in February of 2007 I saw the different generations
tracing back the 99-year history of the company. The passion and
commitment to quality was impressive. It wasn't that huge of a
factory, and probably looked a lot like it did for the last half
century. It was a modest structure not far from the center of
I personally consider Bologna to be the
culinary capital of the world with all the influences of Tuscany
and Italy centered in one point of heavenly bliss. The passionate
affair with food in this region is probably why this company's
products are world renown for quality and longevity. Originally
this company was focused on the local growers in Tuscany, helping
them bring their harvest to market and transform the succulent
tomatoes of the region to what are now world famous culinary
creations of that region.
From that passion for food grew a passion for
quality that Fabio Leonardo has passed down through subsequent
generations and that passion extends to every aspect of the
manufacturing process. Although it was difficult to keep my eyes
from glazing over when his grandson was talking about the perfect
temperature and cooling cycle of the castings, how each type of
metal is painstaking chosen, and the process of machining is so
carefully monitored. You could tell that manufacturing quality
was passion of this mans soul. By the time he was talking about
the perfect finish for each piece of all I could think about was
the terrace at the cafe we were to sip Chianti and look at the
panoramic view of Bologna in the valley below while enjoying our
lunch. I had all the information I needed feeling assured that
the tradition of quality that made this brand world-renowned was
still alive and well in the psyche of the current
