bbi-2018-05-iba innovations (FRITSCH excerpt)

Numerous exhibitors will present their innovations in Munich. The editors submit a couple of novelties to give trade fair visitors an insight.

The intelligent plant

Soft doughs, especially doughs with a long dough preparation process are a special challenge in the manufacturing process, but there is an ever-increasing demand for products made from these doughs. That’s why FRITSCH has developed the new SDS (Soft Dough Sheeter) dough sheeting system. It is optimally suited for processing very soft doughs and large dough thicknesses with only minimum use of oil, and very slight impacts on the dough structure. These are decisive advantages, since an increasing trend is developing towards processing ever softer, pre-fermented doughs with sponge dough and bowl fermentation. Thus the SDS is specifically useful for Mediterranean artisan bread and bread roll products with a dough yield of TA 165 and above (up to TA 190 depending on the flour quality). The capacity range extends from 800 kg up to 5 tons.

 The new Soft Dough Sheeter processes especially soft doughs with a long fermentation time

The advantages of the SDS at a glance:
+ for a dough yield (TA) up to 190 and long pre-fermented doughs
+ maximum possible retention of the original structure of the dough and pores
+ high weight and shape constancy of the dough sheet that is produced, for low scrap dough residues and minimum end-product weight tolerances
+ optimizing the entire production process starting with dough preparation and dough fermenting (batch size from 150 to 200 kg with container or bowl fermentation)

Another of FRITSCH’s topics will be the “Intelligent Retrofits”. The following benefits are offered in the first configuration stage:
+ Qualification balancing of operating personnel through intuitive plant operation
+ Increasing plant availability and prevention of unplanned plant downtimes through Condition Monitoring
+ Predictive maintenance through early warning messages when problems arise on critical components
+ Cost saving and efficient communication with FRITSCH Service, supported by the use of data glasses
