Commercial bakeries have relied on manual labor to produce the dough used to form the foundation for baked goods since the first machine completed its production order. For many years before 1994, batch mixers handled the production load for all types of dough. In 1994, Exact Mixing revolutionized the production lines for commercial bakeries by offering continuous mixers. Because of our automated continuous mixing equipment, your bakery no longer has to rely on manual labor to monitor each stage of the dough development process.
Labor costs are not the only costs impacted by the use of continuous mixers. Fully automated bakery mixing equipment also helps our customers decrease food costs. From the accurate measuring of ingredients to developing dough that is consistent in size, shape, weight, and texture, the continuous mixers designed and manufactured by Exact Mixing reduce food waste.
The bottom line is the line of continuous mixers offered by Exact Mixing will save your industrial bakery a substantial amount of money while at the same time allowing your facility to rapidly ramp up production yields.
Overview of Continuous Mixing
Batch mixing systems complete each of the four dough production stages separately, which means to start a new production order, the dough from a previous production order must finish the development stage. On the other hand, continuous mixing systems allow bakeries to combine every stage into one seamless process. In addition to producing more dough in less time, our automated bakery mixing equipment also delivers accurate results that never vary more than plus or minus 0.25 percent from recipe specifications.
Our high-tech, fully automated machines provide superior scaling accuracy than the scaling accuracy that results from using batch mixing systems. Exact Mixing has developed a measuring system that accurately adds each dry ingredient at the times called for by different dough production recipes. Without having to handle dough that varies in size, shape, weight, and consistency, our customers spend less time improving surface imperfections and more time portioning dough to match the requirements specified by different recipes.
Here are the five continuous mixing systems offered by Exact Mixing:
If your commercial bakery produces a wide variety of dough, the MX continuous mixer is the right machine for your business. The most versatile continuous mixing system in our lineup completes the recipes followed for baked goods as diverse as pastes, snacks, cookies, and pretzels.
Dough recipes that require gentle kneading during the development stage benefit from the use of the EX continuous mixer. As the right match for creating the dough for thin, wheat-based snacks, this machine is calibrated to prevent the creation of surface imperfections.
For bakeries that produce the dough used to make fabricated corn and potato chips, the FX continuous mixer is the best choice for exceeding production goals, This machine spreads small amounts of moisture evenly over large amounts of hydroscopic powders.
Dough recipes that call for low temperatures during the development stage benefit from using the HDX continuous mixer. At production rates that can exceed 10,000 kg per hour, this machine forms the dough used to create popular baked goods such as bread, buns, and rolls.
The LDX continuous mixing system designed by the team of engineers at Exact Mixing specializes in processing dough recipes that require the addition of flour as the last dry ingredient before the development stage. Production rates for this machine range between 1,500 kg and 7,500 kg an hour.
