The quote “Time is money” goes back to the middle of the 18th century, but it still holds the same relevance today. Commercial bakeries in South Korea and around the world operate on tight schedules and even tighter budgets. One missed production order, one loading of the wrong ingredients in your mixers, and your bakery can be under considerable financial pressure.
In 1994, Exact Mixing opened a manufacturing facility for a new type of commercial bakery mixer. Previously, most industrial bakeries operated with batch mixers to complete dough production orders. Many bakeries hesitated to switch dough mixing systems because of the higher initial investment required for continuous mixers. However, shortly after introducing continuous mixer models, it became apparent that they help save money and improve dough consistency.
What is the Continuous Mixing Process?
The word “continuous” provides insight into the fundamental difference between batch and continuous mixers. With a batch mixer, you must wait until all four mixing stages are completed before loading another batch of ingredients. On the other hand, continuous mixers allow you to send multiple production orders through a continuous mixer, one after the other. For example, one recipe reaches the dough development stage, while the next adds flour.
The highly accurate ingredient measurement system devised by the engineers at Exact Mixing helps your bakery significantly lower food waste, which in turn decreases the cost of generating the dough. Our engineers have created a dough mixing system for five different models that measure ingredients for each production order within an accuracy of +/- 0.25 percent. Our continuous mixers blend dough for every moisture requirement, keeping the dough consistent in terms of size, weight, and texture.
Exact Mixing has developed Hydrobond Technology, ensuring uniform moisture blending throughout the dough to ensure consistency. Continuous mixers also do much better than batch mixers at integrating minor ingredients into a recipe. With just one mixer feeding multiple lines, your new continuous mixer dramatically increases production volume while not increasing operating costs.
Our automated continuous mixers do not rely on employees to monitor every step or correct mistakes caused by human error. Instead, automating the dough-mixing process involves self-monitoring and self-correcting every production order. Fast and easy changeovers allow your bakery to complete several dough recipes during the same shift.
Attend a Live Demonstration
At Exact Mixing, we want potential customers to see how our line of continuous mixers can benefit their production lines in South Korea. We encourage you to stop by our Science & Innovation Center in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, to see firsthand how the continuous mixing process works. After watching a six-step demonstration, you can determine which of our continuous mixers best fits your bakery.
