STREAMLINED

PRODUCTION
Improve consistency and efficiencies by automating not only the mixing bowl but also the systems around it.
by Charlotte Atchley
Increased automation gives bakers greater control over
their process. With the widening workforce gap and
many "dough heads," with all their knowledge, heading
for retirement, automating the mixer will become a critical step in the bakery.
"All bakeries are finding it difficult to find qualified
workers or even people prepared to work the hours a
commercial bakery requires," said Andrew McGhie,
director of sales, Shaffer, a Bundy Baking Solution. "The
baking industry is not as sexy as we'd like it to be as far
as attracting people, so typically, labor is hard to get and
very expensive, so automation is always something people are looking for."
Streamlining the mixing process brings a greater
level of consistency to dough development unmatched
by manual operations. "The second thing automation
does is remove the human error factor," he continued.
"Now ingredients are automatically added and mix
times are programmed, so there's very little opportunity for error."
While programmed recipes improve consistency in
the mixing bowl, automation can also extend beyond the
bowl. The mixer can be integrated with systems around

it to create a more streamlined production. These two
phases of automation bring optimization, efficiency and
consistency to any bakery operation.

Deciding to invest
Increasing automation at the mixing stage takes a capital
investment. It requires more money upfront than simply
purchasing a new mixer. "Automation requires a greater
investment than manual; therefore, the technology is not
feasible for all bakeries," said Bobby Martin, executive
product manager, AMF Bakery Systems.
There are some signs that indicate a bakery is ready
for this level of automation and that the investment will
be worth it. Consistent loss of minor and micro ingredients is one of those signs. "A lot of times that's an indication that the operators are throwing out bags of expensive micros with ingredients still left in them," said Joe
Cross, process manager, Zeppelin Systems USA. "That
type of loss starts adding up."
A bakery may have automated flour and sugar delivery
to the mixing bowl for years, he said, but this might be an
indication that it's time to take the next step and automate
delivery of the micro and minor ingredients as well.

Automation can
streamline every part
of the mixing process:
dosing ingredients,
mixing, rest time and
even the transfer to
downstream equipment.
