Automation has emerged as an integral component of information technology platforms, especially involving machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI). Automation solutions have also become essential to the baking industry’s blending process for dough-mixing equipment. However, one company has set the standard for automating its line of continuous mixers.
Founded in 1994, Exact Mixing presents a direct challenge to the traditional dough mixing method called batch mixing. Considering every factor outside of the initial investment in equipment, the continuous mixers manufactured by Exact Mixing easily win the competition against batch mixers. One of the many advantages of installing continuous mixers in your commercial or industrial bakery concerns automated solutions.
Batch mixers require a labor-intensive approach to the dough blending process. Workers must be in place to monitor each step of the dough-mixing process. From measuring bulk ingredients to forming the shape for newly produced dough, a worker has to watch over each mixing step. In addition, the batch-mixing process can make just one order at a time, considerably slowing down the dough-mixing process.
Automated solutions provided by Exact Mixing produce a consistent stream of ingredients to ensure the ramping up of production rates. The much higher outputs, as compared to batch mixers, ensure our customers never have to sacrifice quality for a higher dough production rate.
Why Automation is Important for Your Commercial or Industrial Bakery
Why does automation matter for your commercial or industrial bakery? The first reason why automation matters is that it allows your company to use fewer labor resources for producing dough. Our automation tools measure ingredients, deliver the ingredients to our mixers, and ensure each batch complies with your high-quality standards. You benefit from an accurate measurement of ingredients, which dramatically reduces food waste and helps your commercial or industrial bakery lower food costs.
Another cost that drops when you use one of the continuous mixer models offered by Exact Mixing concerns the cost of labor. Automation makes it unnecessary to assign employees to monitor each step of the dough-mixing process. You can assign workers to other tasks or remove the expense from your company ledger. For the workers that remain assigned to the dough blending process, automation increases the efficiency of each batch produced by one of our continuous mixer models. Improving the efficiency of your dough production operation also enhances worker productivity.
