Bakers spend a lot of time thinking about the quality of food you’re making, and that’s a good thing because people want to eat high-quality baked goods. But inevitably in any baking operation, both big and small, there will come a time when you need to be able to produce more products quickly to meet the demands of your customers. That’s where a high-speed bread moulder comes in and finding the right one for your bakery’s needs can make the difference between successful bread baking or not.
Consistency and Control
One of the key features in any bakery equipment is the ability to achieve consistency and control throughout the process. Whether you bake 10,000 loaves a day or 100, you want every loaf that goes through your bakery to have the same taste and quality. That’s why you invest in bakery equipment like mixers and ovens with the capacity to bake large quantities with little variation.
Bread moulders are no different. The best moulders allow you to maintain the same level of quality with simple controls in the process to keep every bun, loaf, or roll that goes through your moulder consistent. Having the ability to adjust the size, shape, and throughput of a moulder with simple controls gives you the tools you need to create excellent loaves.
Another feature that is critical in today’s bread moulders is the ability to quickly switch from one type of bread moulding to another without extensive changeovers or equipment adjustments can enable bakers to easily expand their offerings. That includes more traditional shapes like rolls or bread loaves, as well as specialty products that many consumers demand today, like organic and rustic bread.
In addition, adding variety with things like whole grains, seeds, toppings, and more can help drive demand for your bakery products, but your bread moulder must be able to keep up. In some small bakeries there isn’t room for multiple bread moulders that specialize in one type or shape of bread, so you need the flexibility to change between bread types, shapes, and ingredients in the shortest possible time.
Bread moulders that offer the widest range of easy-to-use controls and features are the ones most useful in a bakery, including:
- Moulding speeds
- Radius of moulding movements
- Moulding cup adjustments for hydrated or heavy doughs
- Changes in the intensity and speed
- Sheeting options
- Easy sanitation and cleaning features
The right bread moulder allows you to meet customer demands, expand your product line, prevent costly waste in products and time, and offer the same consistent quality every time. See the full line of bread moulders available at Dough Tech and find the right one for you.
