Germany is renowned worldwide for its delectable pastries and desserts, such as apple strudel and black forest cake. The country also has earned the reputation as the home base for several different types of snacks, including large pretzels that locals serve with flavorful condiments like mustard. Because of the strong demand for German baked goods both at home and abroad, commercial and industrial bakeries thrive in Germany. However, commercial and industrial bakeries in Germany must contend with razor-thin profit margins that require close monitoring of operating expenses.
The dough mixing process for making the dough for German baked goods is where commercial and industrial bakeries focus on cost-cutting measures. Leading up to 1994, most commercial and industrial bakeries adopted the batch mixing method for processing the raw dough used to make and distribute baked goods throughout Germany. In 1994, Exact Mixing introduced the continuous mixing process, which, after more than 30 years, has proven to be a much more efficient dough-mixing process for commercial and industrial bakeries operating in Germany.
How Do Continuous Mixers Save Your Commercial Bakery in Germany Money?
Exact Mixing engineers design our line of continuous mixers for commercial and industrial bakeries that manufacture and distribute their baked goods. Our line of continuous mixers outperforms batch mixers in virtually every category. Although the batch mixing method has existed longer than the continuous mixing process, longevity does not equal better performance. When you install a continuous mixing system at your bakery, your commercial can expect to save a considerable amount of money.
Both continuous and batch mixers add dough into a mixing chamber. However, this is where the similarities end. Exact Mixing has perfected a metering system that consistently measures a precise amount of ingredients. Our specific measuring tools ensure dough consistency for every product type, from wafer-thin snacks to large loaves of bread. Accurate measurement of mixing ingredients also dramatically reduces the amount of food waste. As a representative for a commercial or industrial bakery in Germany, you understand how food waste negatively impacts your company’s bottom line.
In addition to lowering food costs, the continuous mixers offered by Exact Mixing also decrease labor costs. Our engineers have developed many automated features for our entire line of continuous mixers. With just one mixer used to produce dough, our automated technology feeds the dough from one mixer through multiple lines to increase production rates. By installing a continuous mixing system at your commercial or industrial bakery, you can remove employees from the production process, which lowers your labor costs. Our automated tools monitor the progress of each production order to keep your commercial bakery on schedule.
Misconception: Continuous Mixers Are Not Designed for Changeovers
When you consider installing a continuous mixing system at your commercial or industrial bakery, you need to separate fact from fiction. The proponents of batch mixers claim continuous mixers make it difficult to complete smooth changeovers. Changeovers represent a process of washing and sanitizing every component of a mixing system before you can start processing another batch of dough. Regardless of the type of mixing system, it takes the same amount of time to complete minor and major changeovers. However, because of the design of our continuous mixing equipment, your commercial bakery can count on doing a much better job of cleaning and sanitizing your continuous mixer equipment. This ensures your commercial bakery fully complies with all food safety standards.
