You probably have heard the phrase, “Time is of the essence.” For commercial bakeries, time is more than the essence.
Time is everything.
The more dough your bakery can produce in the same amount of time, the more revenue you can generate to increase your bakery’s profit margin. One of the keys to getting more out of less time concerns installing the high-speed bakery mixers designed and manufactured by Exact Mixing. Founded in 1994, Exact Mixing offers a line of five continuous mixing systems that outperform batch mixers for several reasons.
What Are the Advantages of the Continuous Mixing Process?
Comparing batch mixers with high-speed bakery mixers designed and manufactured by Exact Mixing starts with comparing production rates. Because of advanced automation technology, continuous mixers ramp up production rates to several times than what batch mixers generate in output. Continuous mixers already have a speed advantage over batch mixers because our machines constantly feed dough ingredients into the mixing chamber to prepare the development stage. On the other hand, batch mixers must finish developing dough during the fourth stage of the mixing process before the machine can start over by sending dough ingredients to be measured as part of the first stage.
Automated technology allows continuous mixers to operate all four stages of the dough blending process simultaneously. The uninterrupted process leads to measuring accuracies that never exceed 0.25% of the ingredients called for in a dough recipe. Automation also means continuous mixing systems can work with dough that contains moisture levels that range from very low to very high. Even dough hydration means your bakery can ramp up production rates, knowing the dough developed during the fourth stage is consistent in size, shape, weight, and texture.
The engineers at Exact Mixing have designed five different continuous systems.
This high-speed bakery mixer is designed to meet large production orders for dough to create popular baked goods such as bread, buns, hard rolls, and English muffins. The ingredients for each unique dough recipe knead gently to reach the proper development level through the use of a single screw blade.
The LDX Continuous Mixer quickly bends every dry ingredient together for dough recipes that call for flour to be the last ingredient added before the entire mixture goes into the blending chamber.
One of the most challenging dough recipes involves spreading even quantities of moisture over a large area of powder. This machine lifts tiny flakes into atomized liquids to create the dough for fabricated corn and potato chips.
Wheat-based snacks have increased in popularity due to health benefits. If your business needs several high-speed bakery mixers to keep up with the robust demand for wheat-based snacks, then the EX Continuous Mixer is the right system to install.
As the most versatile high-speed bakery mixer offered by Exact Mixing, the MX Continuous Mixer is the right machine to blend dough ingredients that form baked goods such as snacks, pretzels, and pie crusts.
