What is the one type of technology that has helped businesses operating in a wide variety of industries weather the storm called the COVID-19 pandemic? The answer is called automation, and the technology has special relevance for commercial bakeries that operate on a razor-thin profit margin. Reaping the benefits of automation involves installing commercial bakery production line mixers offered by Exact Mixing.
Designed and manufactured by Exact Mixing, our five continuous mixer models leverage automation by running production orders through multiple lines. Automated commercial bakery production lines reduce the costs of food and labor, while at the same time generating dramatically higher production order yields.
With the financial resources supplied by our parent company Reading Bakery Systems, Exact Mixing constantly works on product development projects that enhance the performance of our five continuous mixer models. Our team of engineers also spends time developing prototype designs for new models that one day might become part of our line of continuous mixers.
Why Do Continuous Mixers Outperform Batch Mixers?
Automated commercial bakery line mixers represent the foundation for the better performances delivered by the continuous mixers offered by Exact Mixing. Batch mixers, which represented the standard for industrial dough mixers before 1994, can only process one batch of ingredients before starting a second batch. On the other hand, automation allows continuous mixers to constantly feed, measure, blend, and develop dough recipes that form baked goods as widely varied as bread, cookies, and pizza crusts. The key to our automated continuous mixing systems is automation, as the technology allows us to ramp up production quotas by running ingredients through multiple lines.
Automation for commercial bakery production line mixers delivers several benefits that help continuous mixing systems outperform batch mixers. First, automation is the key component that ensures our machines produce batches of dough that are consistent in size, shape, weight, and texture. Every batch of dough that leaves a continuous mixing system does not develop any surface imperfections because our machines automatically smooth dough surfaces. With surface imperfections eliminated before packaging, our customers receive the dough for baked goods that look the same for every production order.
Another reason why our line of continuous mixers outperforms batch mixers is because of the integration of proprietary Hydrobond Technology. Our proprietary Hydrobond Technology blends dry ingredients such as flour with precisely measured amounts of moisture before a batch of dough enters a mixing chamber. Mixing moisture with dry ingredients particle-to-particle leads to the utmost accuracy that produces dough that follows the quality standards established by commercial bakeries. Our team of engineers follows the principle that mixing small quantities of moisture with dry ingredients leads to the production of uniformly shaped dough before it enters the development stage of the production process. With a more consistent dough, our customers generate higher yields and decrease operating costs by lowering the amount of food waste.
Get an Up Close Look at Continuous Mixing Systems
As a representative of a commercial bakery, you read many product descriptions that promote the features of dough mixing systems. Exact Mixing takes sharing product knowledge to the next level by putting on live demonstrations of each of our continuous mixers at the Reading Bakery Systems Science & Innovation Center located in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania. After watching how a continuous mixer model works, you get the opportunity to run one or more machines to discover how the automated bulk ingredient handling and flow liquid systems operate. You get to work with a team of engineers to determine which continuous mixing system is the right choice for your bakery. Exact Mixing also offers a valuable tool called the Continuous Mixing Calculator, which inputs raw data to help you make the right decision to meet your dough production needs.
