widgets, into cases and trays. Using servo drives, the modular cell ensures gentle and
precise handling while also maintaining product integrity. It also can properly orient

Automatic, accurate dough checkweigher
The Vemag Process Check 715 checkweigher from Reiser ensures the highest
levels of dough scaling accuracy. The machine is designed for all dough dividing
lines where consistently accurate weights are critical. The 715 communicates directly with the Vemag dough divider to compensate for variables and continuously fine tune each dough portion to increase on-weight percentages. All this is done
with no operator intervention. The system then tightens up the standard deviation
of the divider and allows the baker to reduce the target weight.

Mixer for difficult doughs
In terms of texture, biscuits, filled pastries and sponge cakes are diversified products and require specific attention in the mixing process. The doughs contain
different amounts of fat and inclusions including chocolate chips, blueberries and
more, which are difficult to mix. VMI developed a version of its vertical doubletool mixer, the Kneadster, that fully meets requirements for these challenging
doughs. The machine's design and its reverse rotation enable the mixing of all
types of dough.
