Mixer design matters for commercial bakery operations.
The design of the mixers used to generate raw dough for baked goods determines throughput, as well as the quality of each type of raw dough. Mixer design is even more critical now as commercial bakeries continue to claw their way back after the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Commodity inflation and prolonged supply chain disruptions also have wreaked economic havoc on industrial bakeries.
At Exact Mixing, our engineers have designed a line of continuous mixers that outperform more traditional batch mixers. Founded in 1994 and part of the Reading Bakery Systems family of brands, Exact Mixing offers automated bakery mixing solutions for commercial bakeries that help them increase production volumes and streamline operations. Our engineers constantly fine-tune mixer designs to provide commercial bakeries with the most advanced automated machines available.
What Makes Continuous Mixers Better Than Batch Mixers?
Automation drives the success of the Exact Mixing line of continuous mixers. Full automation covers all the bases, starting with accurately measuring and feeding ingredients into a mixing chamber. Because of rapidly rising commodity costs, minimizing food waste by accurately measuring and feeding recipe ingredients helps your bakery save substantial money. On the revenue side of the ledger, full automation dramatically increases production rates to increase the yields for each raw dough recipe.
Without the need to staff workers to monitor each machine, your commercial bakery lowers labor costs.
5 Continuous Mixer Designs
Exact Mixing aims to design enough continuous mixer models to meet every production request placed by your customers. We have come up with five unique continuous mixer designs.
Waiting to add flour just before the development stage requires a continuous mixer design that masters the science of precision, and that is precisely what the LDX Continuous Mixer does. Every dry ingredient is blended during the creme-up stage before the LDX accurately measures the combined dry ingredients.
If your commercial bakery blends dough recipes that require moisture absorption, then the HDX Continuous Mixer from Exact Mixing is the suitable machine for your facility. The HDX specializes in mixing ingredients for baked goods recipes such as rolls, bread, buns, and tortillas.
One of the most complex dough recipes involves developing hydroscopic powders into fabricated corn and potato chips. The FX Continuous Mixer masters this complicated recipe by measuring accurate moisture levels to turn hydroscopic powders into popular snacks. The dough remains consistent in texture to produce uniformly shaped chips.
Dough recipes that call for low moisture levels benefit from an EX Continuous mixing system. This machine generates the dough for baked goods like bagels, pretzels, and pocket sandwiches.
As the most versatile continuous mixer offered by Exact Mixing, the MX completes each production order without the machine generating excessive heat. Minimal heat helps extend the machine’s life and preserve the structural integrity of each production order.
