Is it time for your bakery to upgrade its commercial bakery production equipment? The COVID-19 pandemic forced many bakeries to delay infrastructure upgrade projects, including buying equipment to improve the dough-mixing process. If your bakery operates batch mixers, the time has come to transform your commercial bakery by installing continuous mixers designed and manufactured by Exact Mixing.
In 1994, Exact Mixing introduced a commercial bakery production equipment line that revolutionized the dough-mixing industry. A little more than a decade later, we became a part of Reading Bakery Systems, which allowed our company to invest more capital in designing and manufacturing continuous mixing systems. Our customers soon discovered why continuous mixing is a much more efficient system for blending the dough that creates baked goods for virtually every recipe.
What is Continuous Mixing?
Continuous mixers go through the same process that batch mixers go through. First, every dry ingredient for a dough recipe moves to a measuring area. Second, a continuous mixer measures the dry ingredients before adding moisture to complete this stage. Third, the measured ingredients blend inside a mixing chamber. Fourth, the blended ingredients move to the development stage, where a mass of dough is kneaded to create the proper type of baked good.
Continuous mixers offer several benefits that batch mixers do not provide. Batch mixers must wait to start a new batch of dough until another batch leaves the system. On the other hand, continuous mixers constantly feed ingredients into the system. The constant feeding of ingredients allows continuous mixers to ramp up production yields dramatically. Continuous mixers also operate as automated systems, which means your bakery saves money on food, labor, and energy costs.
Consistent bulk delivery, measuring, and handling of ingredients produce dough consistent in size, shape, weight, and texture. Our team of engineers calibrates the measuring stage of the dough-blending process for accuracy percentages within 0.25 percent. Our commercial bakery production equipment completes dough recipes that call for moisture levels that range from very low to very high without generating too much heat. Our continuous mixers connect to downstream equipment such as ovens, sheets, and extrusion machines to complete the dough-blending process.
Exact Mixing designs and manufactures five continuous mixer models:
- LDX Continuous Mixer
- HDX Continuous Mixer
- EX Continuous Mixer
- MX Continuous Mixer
- FX Continuous Mixer

The most substantial investment made by our customers is buying commercial bakery production equipment. Because we understand the significance of investing in dough mixing systems, we offer you the opportunity to watch live demonstrations of each continuous mixing system. We present live demonstrations of our continuous mixers at the Reading Bakery Systems Science & Innovation Center in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania.
A live demonstration of our commercial bakery production equipment is one of many ways to determine which continuous mixer is the right choice for your business. Using the continuous mixing calculator, you can decide which of our machines is the right one for your commercial bakery. During your search for the right commercial bakery production equipment, our team of engineers is available to answer questions and explain our automated system that includes proprietary Hydrobond Technology.
Hydrobond technology adds the dry ingredients used to mix dough between the housing wall and the turning shaft. Continuous mixers include blades attached to the outside of the turning shaft, which separates the dry ingredients into small particles that blend with moisture to complete uniformly developed masses of dough. Our commercial bakery production equipment evenly distributes moisture before dough enters the development stage of the dough-mixing process.
