Automation has become a vital component of business models across a wide range of industries. From assembly lines to transporting goods, automated systems help companies cut costs while at the same time increasing sales. For commercial bakeries, automated bakery production lines have the same economic impact of boosting the bottom line by reducing costs and generating more revenue. If your bakery operates batch mixers to process dough for baked goods, you cannot expect to benefit from the productivity enhancement qualities of automated bakery production lines.
The only way to leverage the power of automation for your commercial bakery is to install the right continuous mixing system. Developed by Exact Mixing and introduced in 1994, continuous mixers represent a fully automated dough-mixing system that starts at the ingredient measuring stage and continues until the development stage. Automated bakery production lines for continuous mixing systems decrease food and labor costs during a process that consistently delivers much higher production yields.
5 Fully Automated Continuous Mixers
The engineers at Exact Mixing have designed five continuous mixing systems to handle every type of dough-processing order.
Our FX Continuous Mixer evenly spreads water into large amounts of hydroscopic powders to transform the powders into snack products such as fabricated corn and potato chips. The even distribution of water prevents product quality issues such as the development of lumps in the powders.
The defining feature of the EX Continuous Mixer is the ability to gently knead dough during the development stage to create thin wheat-based snacks. Because of our fully automated technology, the EX model prevents dough troughs that form due to forceful kneading. Gently kneading dough also lowers energy consumption to save your bakery even more money.
Considered the most versatile continuous mixer in our lineup, the MX model produces dough for a wide variety of baked goods such as snacks, cookies, pretzels, and pastes. This is the best mixer option for bakeries that follow recipes that include the creme-up and pre-blend stages of the dough-mixing process.
With production rates that can exceed 10,000 kg an hour, the HDX Continuous Mixer is the ideal model for developing high-absorption dough. Thicker baked goods like bread, buns, and rolls benefit from a dough-mixing process in which the ingredients for a recipe fully incorporate moisture to create uniform size, shape, weight, and texture.
One of the most difficult dough recipes to complete involves blending all dry ingredients before incorporating flour right before the development stage. The engineers at Exact Mixing designed the LDX Continuous Mixer specifically to address the complexity of mixing dry ingredients before the creme-up stage. Production rates for the LDX range between 1,500 kg and 7,500 kg per hour.
See for Yourself the Power of the Continuous Mixing Method
Talking about our line of continuous mixers does not completely reveal the power of automated bakery production lines. In addition to explaining the benefits and features of continuous mixers, Exact Mixing presents live demonstrations of each model at the Reading Bakery Systems Science & Innovation Center located in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania. We have dedicated an area to display the power of our machines where you get the opportunity to view the automated bulk handling and mass flow liquid systems.
Every one of our potential customers works with a team of engineers to test equipment and dough-mixing techniques to determine which of our line of continuous mixers is the best model for their bakery. Exact Mixing also offers the use of a tool called the Continuous Mixing Calculator, which helps you decide which model matches your production needs.
