Automation is the new buzzword for companies operating in various niches, from automobile manufacturing to delivering products via a fleet of trucks. For commercial bakeries, using dough-mixing systems has traditionally required plenty of manual labor, especially when measuring ingredients. If your bakery operates batch mixers, you know the high labor costs of using your dough-mixing system.
There is a much better way to blend dough for baked goods, saving your bakery a lot of money.
Since 1994, Exact Mixing has offered continuous mixing systems for commercial bakeries. Nearly 30 years later, the five continuous mixer models manufactured by Exact Mixing rely on automated technology to handle every step of the dough-mixing process.
Why Automation Matters for Your Bakery
Automated bakery mixing systems deliver several benefits, saving your commercial bakery money on labor costs. Your business does not have to assign employees to monitor each stage of the dough-blending process. The cost savings for labor can be substantial if your industrial bakery operates several dough-mixing systems. Automation also saves your business money on food costs because automated ingredient measuring tools reduce the amount of food waste. You also spend as much on maintenance costs as mechanical bakery systems require fewer repairs as they age.
Automated bakery systems also improve efficiency, translating into higher throughputs for each production order. By operating one of the continuous mixing systems installed by Exact Mixing, the dough mixing process constantly measures, feeds, mixes, and handles batches of dough. On the other hand, the lack of automation for batch mixers means each step required to process dough must complete before another production order loads into the system,
Here are the five automated continuous mixer models manufactured by Exact Mixing:
Gentle kneading is the trademark attribute of the EX Continuous Mixer. Because of the gentle kneading of the dough, this mixer is ideal for producing the dough used to create thin wheat-based snacks. Thanks to a fully automated system, the EX Continuous Mixer prevents the development of dough troughs and consumes less energy due to the gentle kneading of dough.
As our lineup’s most versatile continuous mixer, the MX Continuous Mixer generates the dough for various baked goods, such as snacks, cookies, pretzels, and pastes. This continuous mixer represents the suitable first-stage mixer for processes requiring pre-blend and creme-up stages.
The FX Continuous Mixer evenly distributes small amounts of moisture over large hydroscopic powders. Our engineers designed this mixer to transform hydroscopic powders into products like fabricated corn and potato chips.
Exact Mixing offers the LDX Continuous Mider for dough-mixing recipes that blend all dry ingredients before adding flour. This mixer’s production rates range from 1,500 kg to 7,500 kg an hour.
For recipes that call for developing dough at low temperatures, the HDX Continuous Mixer is the perfect option to produce super-high absorption dough for baked goods such as buns, rolls, and loaves of bread. Your commercial bakery can ramp up production rates for the HDX that exceed 10,000 kg per hour.
Taker Advantage of Exact Mixing Tools
Exact Mixing offers several helpful tools to improve the performance of your industrial bakery. Loss-in-Weight Technology is the most accurate tool for measuring and feeding the dry ingredients used to produce the dough for baked goods. This technology leverages the power of automation to ensure every production order creates dough of the same weight.
