Your commercial bakery is missing the one piece of the puzzle for creating the dough for baked goods. You have industrial dough mixers and processing equipment that combines with downstream equipment such as ovens and laminators to manufacture and distribute baked goods. However, your bakery uses batch dough mixers, which cannot keep up with growing demand. Is there an alternative to the batch mixing method?
The answer is yes, and the alternative is called the continuous mixing process introduced and perfected by Exact Mixing.
Since 1994, Exact Mixing has offered a line of continuous mixers to compete with batch mixers. Although continuous and batch mixers follow the same process, continuous mixers generate much higher yields in the same amount of time. Batch mixers must complete every step in the dough mixing process before loading the ingredients to start mixing another batch of dough. As the name suggests, continuous mixers constantly feed ingredients into a mixing chamber to meet larger production orders.
Getting more done in less time is the foundational principle for boosting productivity, which is the key to running a successful bakery in an industry of razor-thin profit margins. In addition to increasing production, our line of continuous mixers produces batches of dough that are consistent in size, shape, and weight. Exact Mixing continuous mixers also remove every surface imperfection that develops during the dough-mixing process.
The question is not should your industrial bakery switch to the continuous mixing process. Instead, the question is which continuous mixer makes the most sense to install.
Our Line of Continuous Mixers
With five continuous mixer models, Exact Mixing offers mixers that meet the demand for virtually every type of baked good.
The fully automated EX Continuous Mixer mixes ingredients with a wide variety of moisture levels at production rates between 500 and 10,000 kg an hour. This mixer is used to create baked goods such as crackers, pretzels, and other types of wheat-based snacks. One of the many advantages of the EX mixer is that it eliminates dough troughs.
As the most versatile mixer in our lineup, the MX Continuous Mixer processes the dough used to make baked goods like cookies, pizza, batters, and icings. The MX Continuous Mixer is the perfect industrial dough mixer for recipes that require the pre-blend and creme-up stages.
Precision is what sets apart the FX Continuous Mixer from every batch mixer model. This machine evenly distributes small levels of moisture to lift large amounts of powder into atomized liquids. The even distribution of moisture makes the FX mixer the best dough mixer for hydroscopic powders such as potato flakes.
If you have a dough recipe that blends flour as the last ingredient, the LDX Continuous Mider is the right dough mixer for your bakery. Every ingredient except flour mixes together in the first stage before flour is added to complete the recipe. This mixer produces dough at rates between 1,500 and 7,500 per hour.
Designed to complete highly developed dough recipes at low temperatures, the HDX Continuous Mixer is the best match for dough used to create baked goods like buns, rolls, and bread. This mixer generates a yield as high as 10,000 kg an hour.
