Is your bakery not generating the revenue you projected when you drew up your business plan? If you answered yes, then the underlying problem for your business is the type of machine you have installed to process dough. Batch mixing systems no longer define the standard for processing dough for commercial bakeries. Yes, batch mixers still pump out enough dough for a business to turn a profit, but the profit margin increases significantly when you discover continuous mixing solutions for bakery manufacturers.
Since 1994, Exact Mixing has offered continuous mixing solutions for bakery manufacturers that accurately complete every type of dough recipe, from developing thin, delicate dough for wheat-based snacks to gently kneading dough during the development stage that forms thick baked goods like loaves of bread. With support from our parent company, Reading Bakery Systems, our engineers work with the highest-quality equipment to perfect the operations of five continuous mixing systems.
Why Do Continuous Mixers Outperform Batch Mixers?
The manufacturers of batch mixing systems can claim one advantage the machines have over continuous mixing systems: Lower production costs. However, for several reasons, continuous mixing solutions for bakery manufacturers quickly recover the initial higher production costs.
Continuous mixers run on automated technology, which means your bakery requires fewer employees to monitor each of the four stages of the dough-mixing process. The result is much lower labor costs because you do not have to schedule as many employees for each shift. Automation also comes in handy for your bakery’s income statement when it comes to food waste. The precise measurement of dry and wet ingredients means your business can dramatically lower food costs by cutting down on waste. The clamshell design of our mixing chambers also helps reduce food waste by preventing pieces of dough from flying out of the system during the mixing stage. Automation also produces a much more energy-efficient machine, decreasing energy costs and reducing your bakery’s carbon footprint.
How about on the revenue side of the income statement? The answer is continuous mixing solutions for bakery manufacturers to boost production rates immediately. Instead of waiting for each of the four stages to finish before starting over with the first stage, continuous mixing systems constantly move dry ingredients to the measurement station and mix dry and wet ingredients. Our continuous mixing systems always have dough kneading during the development stage of the dough blending process.
