Fritsch set to release new bakery lines at iba
German-headquartered bakery manufacturer Fritsch is set to showcase its latest series of equipment, including a soft dough sheeting system, at this year’s iba trade fair.
As the company (pictured at last year’s Sudback event) explained, its new line has been developed in response to a growing trend towards healthy eating, which has seen bakers increasingly processing softer and more developed doughs that classical machinery can only handle with difficulty.
In response, Fritsch’s SDS system, which will be exhibited at iba, which takes place between 15-20 September in Munich, Germany, has been devised to portion soft doughs and produce a continuous dough sheet.
Consequently, the high weight accuracy of dough blocks, the elimination of height drops, and the fine, uniform dusting with flour have been devised to help deliver smooth production.
The equipment is said to be particularly suited for artisanal breads and rolls, designed to deliver a hand-crafted appearance. Its capacity ranges from 800 kg to 5 tonnes at a dough yield of 165 to 190, depending on the type of flour.
During iba, the business will update customers on key developments with its machinery, supporting everyone from handicraft bakers through to industrial groups seeking turnkey solutions.
The company said: “Digitalisation is continually presenting us with new opportunities to offer even better services to our customers. With our intelligent services – the first three will be presented at iba 2018 – we are improving, among many other things, the monitoring and maintenance of our lines.
“Our new iba 2018 exhibition concept perfectly reflects our corporate philosophy, and is bound to show every customer how our passion for dough and technology is the motivation that drives us towards high performance.
“Our goal is to familiarise every visitor with our full range of machines and services – through exciting live demonstrations at the booth and through one-to-one talks with our experienced personnel.
In addition to this, on Monday, the 17th of September, we will be hosting our Fritsch & Friends Evening right there at the booth for our customers and partners.” The company’s appearance at iba 2018 is at Hall A2, booth 111.
