Low-shear mixers for industrial bakery applications can gently knead dough to create the most delicate types of baked goods. Until 1994, one manufacturer dominated the dough industry with batch mixing systems. Exact Mixing changed the dough industry landscape in 1994 by unveiling a line of continuous mixing systems, including a model that remains the best low-shear mixer in the industry.
Because of the constant movement of ingredients through continuous mixing systems, bakeries that offer a wide variety of dough reap the benefits of higher production volumes and much lower operating costs.
How Do Continuous Mixers Outperform Batch Mixers
The engineers at Exact Mixing devised a form of automated technology that is incorporated within each of our five continuous mixing systems. Full automation for each of the four primary stages of dough mixing allows your bakery to reduce labor costs. You no longer need to assign employees to monitor our line of continuous mixers. Our engineers created a self-correcting system that accurately measures all ingredients and then processes them through a system at much faster production rates than the production rates achieved by batch mixing systems. Full automation also means you can expect every dough recipe to come out of the development stage consistent in size, shape, weight, and texture.
Fully automated continuous mixing systems improve the efficiency of your bakery’s dough mixing process. Improved efficiency translates into lower energy bills and helps your bakery leave a much smaller carbon footprint. The innovative clamshell design of our mixing chambers accomplishes two goals. First, the innovative clamshell design prevents cross-contamination. Second, the clamshell-designed mixing chambers dramatically reduce food waste by preventing pieces of dough from flying out of the chamber during the mixing process.
Exact Mixing designs and manufactures five continuous mixing systems:
- FX Continuous Mixer
- EX Continuous Mixer
- MX Continuous Mixer
- HDX Continuous Mixer
- LDX Continuous Mixer
Exact Mixing Provides Unsurpassed Customer Support
Another reason Exact Mixing attracts bakeries to our line of continuous mixing systems is that we provide comprehensive customer support. Most batch mixer manufacturers fail to ensure their customers have all the tools they need to succeed. Exact Mixing presents our customers with an operating guide that explains in detail the function of the mixer and blender, as well as the ingredients metering and materials handling equipment. Every continuous mixing system includes a control panel that monitors the progress of each dough recipe. We offer complete system installation and testing supervision to ensure your bakery maximizes the benefits delivered by our five continuous mixer models.
This brings us to the most crucial question: Which continuous mixing system or systems is right for your bakery? The answer lies in the Reading Bakery Systems Science and Innovation Center in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania. At the Center, you get the opportunity to watch live demonstrations of each of our five continuous mixing systems in action. After each demonstration, our engineers answer questions to help bakery owners and managers determine which of the five models is best for their businesses. We have set up the Science and Innovation Center with all the equipment that makes our continuous mixing systems run flawlessly, which includes gravimetric dry feeders, mass flow liquid systems, and automated bulk handling systems.
