York, PA 17404
Founded in the Netherlands by the Capelleveen family some 80 years ago, Capway Systems continues to meet the ever-growing needs of the baking industry. Capway has a record of expertise and longevity that few companies can match. Although the U.S. manufacturing plant is only 19 years old, its staff has literally hundreds of years of experience in the design and manufacturing of automated equipment required for today’s high-capacity bakeries.
Both the U.S. and European plants set up and test run all new equipment prior to shipment. This allows customers to see and operate their newly purchased equipment before it ever arrives at their particular facility.
Capway’s Robocap pan storage and retrieval systems have been installed in more than 60 bakeries in Europe and six high-speed units in North America. With the introduction of the new Type 1 robot, Capway can offer pan storage solutions to the small baker as well as the large wholesale plant.
“The Robocap systems are radically different from the conventional systems,” a Capway spokesman explains. It is considerably more gentle on the pans, and it uses space more efficiently than conventional systems. As with its other equipment, Capway’s Robocap must be integrated within the whole production line. Capway engineers provide complete plant design services and integrate everything from makeup through packaging.

For more than 150 years, Church & Dwight Co., Inc., makers of ARM & HAMMER brand products, has been a pioneer in the science of chemical leavening. As the leading U.S. supplier of sodium bicarbonate, ammonium bicarbonate, and potassium bicarbonate for food formulations, the company offers a unique range of bicarbonate granulations to help food manufacturers produce more favorable characteristics in finished baked products through innovative leavening systems.
Church & Dwight’s heritage of innovation and the unmatched technical capabilities of their food application scientists have resulted in a variety of leavening products of particular interest to the food industry:
Sodium bicarbonate grade 1 (powdered), grade 1 TFF (treated free-flowing), grade 2 (fine granular), grade 4 (granular), as well as custom grades and granulations to meet customers application requirements.
First Blend, a food grade 1 powdered sodium bicarbonate with a high-performance flow aid.
Ammonium bicarbonate in a clear polyethylene bag that improves product flowability by providing a better barrier to moisture.
Flow-K, a food grade potassium bicarbonate with a unique flow aid system that assures excellent storage and handling properties.
Tortilla Blend, a unique blend of special sodium bicarbonate granulations that can result in substantial improvements in the appearance, texture, and flavor of tortillas through better control of leavening.
Tortilla Blend is the most recent leavening innovation from Church & Dwight, and it has been extremely well received by the marketplace. Used in combination with conventional or innovative leavening acids, Tortilla Blend helps optimize the leavening process in three critical stages:
Stage 1: Some sodium bicarbonate is solubilized early for uniform gas cell distribution throughout the dough.
Stage 2: More sodium bicarbonate is solubilized later within the dough prior to the press and oven, producing more gas cells that join existing cells.
Stage 3: In the oven, complete solubility of the sodium bicarbonate occurs and all gas cells expand for optimally leavened tortillas.
This is in contrast to traditional practices, in which tortillas are leavened using conventional baking powder, a premixed combination of sodium bicarbonate and acid salts that allows only limited control of leavening.
Better control of the leavening process can result in tortillas with:
Rich, brown toast points for better flavor and aroma*
Uniform, open cell structure for greater height and volume*
Reduced translucency and improved texture*
*Results may vary depending upon tortilla formulation and processing conditions.

NuTEC’s C-Frame Depositors have improved the way many processors deposit fillings for stuffed sandwiches, multiple-layered products, stuffed seafood, appetizers, and poultry products. Using the same hydraulic technology NuTEC has successfully employed in their food-forming machines, its portioning depositors provide excellent portion weight control and clean, accurate filling placement down the line. Certain models produce as many as 45,000 deposits per hour.
The number of successful applications continues to grow as more and more processors recognize the many applications that NuTEC’s depositors have in the bakery, hot snack, and convenience food markets. The C-Frame design of the depositors enables the equipment to fit into existing production lines to deposit fillings for stuffed sandwiches, calzones, sandwich wraps, empanadas, cordon bleu, burritos, egg rolls, hamburgers, meat pies, chicken kiev, and stuffed seafood shells. NuTEC’s portioning depositors also deposit the bottom portion, the filling, and the top portion of the chicken. One machine is required for each function.
NuTEC’s unique feed system uses a rotating spiral that gently moves the product to the rotary vane pump. Bridging and overworking are eliminated because the product is neither rolled nor tumbled. Deposit sizes of up to 1 1/2-in. thick can be achieved at up to 65 cycles per minute. The 100% hydraulic system on the depositors also minimizes maintenance, reduces downtime, and lowers repair costs.
Three portioning depositor models are available from NuTECÚ the 725 features a 300 lb. hopper, can deposit products up to 1 3/8-in. thick, and has line widths from 0-in. to 13-in.. The 745 depositor features a 400 lb. hopper, can deposit products up to 1 1/2-n. thick, and has line widths from 13-in. to 34-in. The 790 depositor features a 600 lb. hopper, can deposit products up to 1 1/2-n. thick, and has line widths from 24-in. to 40-in. Depending upon product applications and volume capacity, NuTEC Manufacturing will work with processors to fit portioning depositors to their specific needs.

Pizzey’s Milling is North America’s largest and most-established supplier of milled flaxseed ingredients. The company, founded in 1991 by Glenn and Linda Pizzey, is dedicated to developing the science and nutrition of flaxseed, an oilseed grown in Canada and the northern United States for its nutritional and nutraceutical properties. Today, the company maintains its manufacturing headquarters in Angusville, Manitoba and a U.S. subsidiary headquartered in Gurnee, Il., with distribution sites in St. Joseph, Missouri; Buffalo, New York; Los Angeles and Etobicoke, Ontario.
Flaxseed (also known as linseed) is an oilseed that provides a highly economical source of omega-3 oils (20%). In addition, flaxseed’s very low-net carb content (less-than 3%) makes it an economical ingredient of choice for many low-net carb formulations, ranging from breads to tortillas, cereals, pizza crusts, pastas, nutrition bars, crackers, cookies, batters and breadings. Flaxseed’s other nutraceutical components, such as lignans and dietary fiber, have generated considerable research interest by virtue of their phytoestrogenic and pre-biotic properties. Specific research projects have documented flaxseed’s benefits for cardiovascular health, immune system enhancing and cancer protective benefits. All this activity has spurred consumer interest in flaxseed as a health food.
Pizzey’s manufactures its milled flaxseed and bran ingredients from the whole flaxseed — it does not use the meal by-products of oil-pressing operations! Thus, its customers can be assured of the full nutritional and nutraceutical value of flaxseed. Pizzey’s MeadowPure Quality technology, a combination of patented and proprietary processing and handling technologies, guarantees the stability of these ingredients under normal, ambient storage conditions.
Linda and Glenn Pizzey founded the company as a working bakery dedicated to developing flaxseed-containing bakery products for local markets. As sales rapidly expanded, the company shifted its focus toward the development of technically and nutritionally validated flaxseed ingredients. Today, the company is a wholly dedicated ingredient supplier that continues to build on its leadership in new ingredients, new product applications, and new markets based upon a solid foundation of technical development and customer support. The company’s new U.S. subsidiary in Gurnee, Il. was established to provide additional technical and marketing support to its U.S. customer base.

Conveying the Right Answer
When buying any new machine with a conveyor belt, a critical consideration is ease of installation. Before purchasing, ask yourself some of the more hard-hitting questions to reduce the possibility of error later. For example, are you choosing a machine design that allows for an endless conveyor belt to be installed as a replacement, or is on-site splicing of the belt required. If splicing is required, can plant maintenance handle the task and would they need training? The alternative is to factor in the cost of an installer to do the job. Either way, you’ll need to include the downtime cost.
Is the belt in compliance with FDA regulations? Can it handle the kind of product load — weight, temperature — typical for your facility?
Can you change the belt if you later decide to retrofit a belt of a different type or material? Find out about its cleanability characteristics.
Do you know how to appropriately tension the belt you want to purchase and then how to ensure tracking to avoid expensive repairs later?
Also important are such issues as the ability of the proposed belt to handle various different kinds of chemical residue. One type of plastic, for example, may be relatively weak in handling certain oils, while another is completely impervious to attack.
These are just a few of the many challenges bakeries confront when selecting the appropriate belt for their needs. If you need assistance, please contact our Engineering Department at 1-800-255-5581 or by e-mail: email@example.com.

Auto-Bake Serpentine at IBIE 2004
At the IBIE 2004 international baking exhibition in August this year, continuous baking solutions supplier Auto-Bake will be featuring a number of it recent innovations such as in the field of bread, cake and cookies production. The exhibition will demonstrateof the features and benefits of the Auto-Bake Serpentine continuous baking system.
This exhibit is that it allows visitors to view the essential elements of any Auto-Bake continuous baking system,” explained Auto-Bake marketing director Amanda Hicks. “Our system is made up of the basic building blocks which can designed up to meet the needs of almost any baking application.”
“Customisation is an important aspect of modern baking, as companies have to meet the market demand for product diversity and change, and whilst the exhibit demonstrates the essential elements of any Auto-Bake line, we are well aware that ’one size doesn’t fit all’ on the baking production floor. All our systems are custom-built to meet specific product parameters, throughput and available space requirements
The heart of the Auto-Bake continuous baking solution is the Serpentine baking system: a patented vertical oven process that occupies just one-tenth of the footprint of legacy tunnel oven technology. Pans or trays move through the Serpentine ovens and coolers via an ingenious vertical ’S’ configuration transport system, allowing the product to be conveyed horizontally through numerous precision-controlled thermal zones.
In the case of thermal oil heating, the Serpentine oven’s energy consumption and costs are dramatically reduced, while the ’mellow heat’ of the thermal oil system ensures optimal product quality. Auto-Bake Serpentine baking solutions feature superior flexibility, allowing bakers to make complete product changes by simply changing pans, infeed and depanning tooling.
The fully automated system offers touch-screen management and control of all baking line processes and parameters including depositing, panning and de-panning process, and temperature profiles. This permits a dramatic reduction in line staffing costs, when compared with vertical and tunnel oven systems, and facilitates straightforward and seamless integration of the baking line with plant-wide SCADA system

COLBORNE CORPORATION EXPANDS ITS CAPABILITIES TO BECOME A LEADER IN TURN KEY PROJECT MANAGEMENT FOR ENGINEERED BAKING SYSTEMS!
Since 1879 Colborne Corporation has been producing commercial bakery equipment and systems. While history confirms Colborne as the leader in the Pie Industry, their latest developments have also put them at the top of the list when it comes to Turn Key Project Management of automated production lines for a wide range of bakery products.
Continued development of their engineering staff and in-house manufacturing capabilities enable Colborne to offer a variety of new products and services. One of these services is a Process Requirement Study, which will identify what operations need to be automated and document project specifications.
Additional services that Colborne will handle in a turn key project management/engineering role include preparation of bid specifications, RFQ development, evaluating proposals, developing layouts, engineering integrated control system, material procurement and control, site prep and installation, start up and testing, training, and establishing preventive maintenance and sanitation programs.
“With our customers feeling the pressure of top management to get projects completed on a fast track and under budget, they have put pressure on us to offer the complete package” says Rich Hoskins, President/CEO, Colborne Corporation. The advantage Colborne offers is their focus on being a manufacturer with integration capability. Under this program, Colborne often times manufactures more than 50% of the complete line that they are managing. “Our ability to manufacture sheeting systems, depositing/topping systems, decorating systems, ultrasonic cutting systems and robotic/flexible automation systems greatly increases our ability to provide customers with turn key automation solutions without having to coordinate many other vendors for supply”, adds Bernie Tatro, Senior Vice President of Technology.
Traditional project engineering/management companies do not offer manufacturing capabilities. Dealing direct with a major manufacturer and using their engineering services to integrate and manage the project, provides for communication that is considerably more effective. Consequently, completing a project under budget and on time, with a system that meets your specification, is more likely when dealing with a company like Colborne Corporation

Arise products can also improve dough production efficiencies in all types of systems — fresh, par-baked, refrigerated and frozen. In addition, MGP offers ingredient solutions to produce high-protein, low-carbohydrate breads, rolls and pasta.
Vegetarian meat analog products benefit from the use of the company’s Wheatex textured protein. Wheatex possesses a number of clear-cut advantages over competitive products, including greater textural integrity and a neutral flavor profile. As a result, customers can create better tasting, more satisfying products.
The company’s Pregel and Midsol lines of modified starches are greatly valued for their functionality and versatility. Pregel 46, a pregelatinized wheat starch, has applications in products as diverse as bakery goods, gravies, soups, sauces and salad dressings. MGP’s Midsol 46 cook-up wheat starch also is extraordinarily useful in a variety of bakery products and prepared foods.

MenashaWare, the innovative line of corrugated bakeware from Menasha Packaging Company, first hit the market in June 2003. Fast-forward to almost a year later, and the product line has nearly doubled in size due to customer demand.
When the MenashaWare line was launched, it included the most common sizes of trays to accommodate quarter- and half-sheet cakes, along with 12-in., 14-in. and 16-in. pizzas. The performance of the corrugated product garnered such rave reviews from bakeries and restaurants that product line extensions were immediately in the works. Today, the expanded MenashaWare portfolio includes bakeware for bread loafs, round cakes, pies, muffins, brownies, angel food cake, entrees, and personal pizzas.
Manufactured from a patented thermo-pressing process, MenashaWare offers a cost-effective alternative to the paperboard, plastic and foil pans commonly used for mass-baked goods. And since the trays are dual-ovenable, there is greater baking flexibility for the product user.
Using MenashaWare, a food producer can pour or place the ingredients directly into a display-quality tray complete with color graphics. Then, the tray can travel directly from oven to consumer. This eliminates the need to directly touch the product following the baking or cooking operation. And since MenashaWare uses a non-stick material, there is no pre-treating required before the acceptance of dough or other food product.
These characteristics eliminate the labor-intensive steps of de-panning, repackaging, washing and prepping baking trays, providing significant cost-savings for the MenashaWare user.
Perhaps the biggest misconception about MenashaWare is that it is identical to other paperboard products already on the market. In truth, the corrugated flutes of MenashaWare offer unique properties that cannot be duplicated by standard paperboard. For example, the interior paper of MenashaWare “locks” into a size that limits expansion and contraction in the baking process. This allows for more effective and consistent lidding and processing of mass-produced foods. The flutes also actually act as an insulator that retains heat within the confines of the ovenable tray. Consequently, food stays hotter, for a longer period of time in MenashaWare. Furthermore, the added heat retention can often shorten baking cycle times, thus increasing the velocity of finished good preparation.

Revent introduced the first roll-in rack oven, employing convection oven technology for the first time in 1958. Now used in more than 120 countries, Revent ovens have consistently delivered the highest level of bake quality combined with operation efficiency and maximum life expectancy. For the baker this has translated into higher profits and has earned Revent the reputation as the premier rack oven on the market.
After the introduction of the rack oven, there were a series of other “firsts”, beginning with the development of the upward airflow system, thus mimicking the effects of a hearth bake that gives bread more volume through lift and oven jump. Followed by the introduction of a patented high volume steam system that produced the quality of bread crust previously only created in deck ovens.
Today, Revent continues to introduce other “firsts” including the computerized controls that allow the baker or manager to program and monitor the ovens from a remote computer and even give a record of each bake. The new 700 series ovens have larger double glass window in the door for easy viewing of the bake progress and a redesigned larger hood for steam evacuation.
In addition to innovations in oven technology, Revent has pioneered proofer technology with airwash systems. The company’s new 700 series proofers utilize the latest in controls and airwash technology.
Revent ovens are manufactured in New Jersey with the same careful attention to quality that has become a Revent tradition. At the factory Revent can offer its test bake facility for training and testing. Customers are welcome to see for themselves the excellent result that they can achieve from baking in a Revent.
Revolutionary thinking in design and application is how Revent remains on the cutting edge of baking technology and on the minds of bakers who recognize quality as a value.
