Company: DEBAG

Technology Snapshot: During the week of September 23-26, Stuttgart will be hosting südback 2017. At Germany’s leading fair for the bakery and confectionery trades, DEBAG will be presenting its Baking 4.0 range of innovative baking technology. This has been designed with the needs of bakers, restaurateurs and food retailers in mind, simplifying the operation of their ovens and facilitating the control and evaluation of their baking process data as well as economising on valuable labor time and energy costs. – DEBAG’s innovative software for oven control and networking – facilitates considerably simplified and convenient oven operation. It ensures consistently high quality in bakery products, enhances process control and helps to save on energy costs. It makes the control and evaluation of baking processes not only more transparent but also much more straightforward and efficient. Totally consistent with the company slogan: DEBAG – baking with added value.

SmartBake detects the batch quantity in the oven and automatically adjusts the parameters during the baking process. Whether there are ten trays or just one in the oven, SmartBake ensures that only as much energy is supplied as necessary. The program not only helps to save energy and prevent operator error but also guarantees a consistently high quality of baked products.

VirtualBaker: The digital baking assistant detects the batch quantity in the oven and automatically selects the appropriate baking programme. Developed by PreciBake, this system can be installed in selected DEBAG in-store ovens. It minimises the likelihood of operator error and logs the entire baking process. The subsequent systematic data evaluation supports bakers, restaurateurs and food retailers in optimising the processes at their individual business outlets.

With the help of the LMS performance management system, energy costs can be significantly reduced by avoiding expensive power peaks. A specific oven group is controlled and synchronised via a processor unit. The software takes on the job of resource planning for the linked ovens, limiting power peaks from the outset. The advantages are obvious: significantly lower energy costs in the individual business outlet.

The FilialNet oven networking software can connect an unlimited number of ovens with one another, thus facilitating a convenient and clearly structured baking programe management. The linked ovens can be controlled at any time and from anywhere via smartphone or tablet. This not only saves valuable working time but also means that the operator can respond flexibly to unwanted changes during the baking process. In addition, FilialNet allows for practical remote maintenance of all linked ovens. FilialNet permits oversight of all processes at any time. It logs all processes in the oven to the nearest second, generating highly accurate data in both graphic and tabular format. Simple controls and maximum operating convenience are guaranteed with FilialNet.
