Mecatherm’s M-VT oven received the IBA Award 2023 in the oven category in October at the IBA 2023 trade fair in Munich and the Industry Excellence 2023 prize in the best processing innovation category in November at the Gulfood Manufacturing show in Dubai.

TMG/Mecatherm, a designer of equipment and automatic production lines for bakery, pastry and patisserie production and other products, announced the oven at the IBA event.

Olivier Sergent, president of TMG, said, “These two awards are a true recognition of the work we have accomplished and our capacity for innovation.”

Raymond Nogael, vice-president of global marketing and business development for TMG/Mecatherm, said, “This new M-VT oven is the culmination of three years of development involving many of our employees, all aiming to offer industrial players a baking solution that supports them in their daily challenges of product quality, industrial performance, and sustainable development. To achieve this, we have rethought all the concepts of the vertical oven, such as airflow circuit, conveying system, heating, and hygrometry management.”

The result is a collection of innovations serving sustainable development, particularly in terms of the energy transition. The M-VT oven is designed to provide high baking quality for a wide range of products ranging from crusty bread to pastries and other soft products. It is extremely compact and guarantees optimal industrial performance, the company said in a press release, noting that its data can be collected and processed to produce a performance report or monitor its energy consumption.
