The Linxis Group brings together five suppliers from the international baking equipment industry. Everyone acts independently. Specialist groups ensure the overall coordination and development.

Trade Fairs

The Messe Düsseldorf reports that the interpack 2020 trade fair is fully booked. The event is regarded as the most significant international trade fair for the packaging sector and related process industries, which also include the baking, cookie and confectionery industries.

Production

The KRONOS mixer from the WP BAKERYGROUP promises consistent mixing results independent of the personnel and fluctuating raw materials properties.

The protective screens for Varimixer’s planetary mixers are now made of stainless steel. Elongated viewing windows give a clear view of the condition of the batter.

RONDO Burgdorf AG has launched new electronic sheeters with individual drives. The user can operate the plants via a smartphone-style i-Touch controller.

The fully automatic proofer from the plant constructor DEBAG is called the TEFI. The plant can be used to control both proofing and cooling processes, e.g. to always allow proofed dough pieces to be baked off in a branch.

The L’Artisane baguette line is destined to change the world of industrially produced baguettes.
As a result of Benier’s new system, the baked products are designed to achieve high quality without final proofing.

Albert Handtmann Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG, Biberach/Riss, offers various solutions for the industrial production of toast-bread.

Research

Ohmic heating is a process in which a product is connected in an electrical circuit like a resistance and is heated as a result. At the BOKU in Vienna, this technology is being tested for bread baking, specifically for gluten-free bread.

How can bread be baked on Mars? This is the challenge facing the Space Bakery Project; a consortium led by Puratos, comprising seven Belgian organisations.

Production facilities

FactoryXperts, baking industry consultants from Switzerland, uphold this motto in the sustainability sense as well. According to the advisers, although new building is an option, a meticulous analysis of the business is needed first of all.

Packaging

Biscuits, baked goods or pizza are commonly packaged in plastic flow wraps. When it comes to sustainability, however, there is room for improvement.

Management

The more accurately baked products sales can be forecast in advance, the lower are the returns losses. The Geiping Bakery relies on self-learning software to push down the proportion of returns, while also discovering sales opportunities that remain unused.
