Equipment Snapshot: MECATHERM will be attending the International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE) from 8 to 11 September 2019 in Las Vegas, Central Hall - Stand 6437. The equipment manufacturer will be unveiling a brand-new flexible line concept and will be demonstrating its new M-NS divider.

During IBIE 2019 and a year after the launch of three other innovative pieces of equipment, MECATHERM will present for the first time a global solution for manufacturers who require greater flexibility. The aim: easily adapt production to meet constantly changing market challenges and new products consumer demand.

Raymond Nogael, VP marketing, explains: "MECATHERM'S flexible line solution adapts to a new economic model with flexibility and agility, to replace the previous mass consumption reference model. Today, industrial bakery manufacturers need to be able to produce multiple products involving varied customized processes and need to launch products on the market quickly, without compromising on quality or performance."

The new Flexible production line, launched during the IBIE 2019 tradeshow is the solution highlighted by MECATHERM to respond to this new demand. Smart and responsive, this new line provides the opportunity to supply a large range of products, produced using different process combinations with trays of varied types and formats. The latest MECATHERM technology and equipment, such as the M-TA oven and the M-UB handling system unveiled during IBA 2018, will play a part in providing a unique and innovative solution for industrial bakers.

Visitors to the IBIE fair will also attend demonstrations of the new M-NS divider on the MECATHERM booth. This new make-up line equipment has numerous advantages: its innovative technology produces authentic bread with a taste and shelf life adapted to current market demand. By attending presentations that show the M-NS divider in operation, visitors will have the opportunity to evaluate its added value in terms of products quality.

The new M-TA oven will also be presented at the stand. Let's not forget, it was this piece of equipment recognized with the "IBA Innovation Award" during the IBA show in Germany last year.

The solutions presented by MECATHERM are the product of a strongly customer-oriented development and research policy. As a result, the equipment and line provider will present a global offer adapted to the industrial needs regarding product quality and industrial efficiency.
