Fine Tuning Lever (FTL) is the patented innovation for mixed control of the steam nozzle. Consisting of a revamped control lever that offers improved regulation of the flow of stream, FTL includes, in a single mechanism, both the steam dispensing systems already found on La San Marco machines: by turning the knob or moving the lever up and down. The new device give the barista high-precision control over the flow of steam when preparing milk-based beverages. The highly precise flow regulation was made possible thanks to the use of a cammed device that has replaced simple regulation via screw-lead screw.
THE BENEFITS OF FTL TECHNOLOGY
Quick and practical for dispensing steam in short bursts and on/off.
Extremely precise regulation of the amount and speed of the steam jet for perfect milk frothing.
Steam delivery can be maintained at the desired speed, leaving the barista to work hands-free.
Since 1920, La San Marco has represented excellence in the production of espresso machines. It is a recognized leader in the segment of machines with the traditional lever system, for which it holds the exclusive international LEVA CLASS® (Controlled Lever Anti-Shock System) patent. It also produces a wide range of traditional, automatic and semi-automatic machines, and capsule machines, grinders and other professional equipment for bars, restaurants and hotels, which it distributes worldwide.
