Toast bread line
By Doug Picklyk
Mecatherm has launched MECAtoast, its new versatile toast bread production line. The production of toast bread requires dough to go through a series of stages, each open to the potential for mistakes that could disrupt the bread’s chemical process, thus the need for automated production.
The MECAtoast line can accommodate different variants of toast bread in terms of formulation, format and baking. The line is made up of established equipment including: the H3 divider, Bloc Combi make up line, MVS proofer and FDA oven.
The production line is scalable and can switch from semi-automatic to automatic without needing to modify the equipment. It’s also a flexible solution that allows producing toast bread but also permits the production of baguettes and derivatives.
MECAtoast provides production capacities of up to 47 tonnes of toast bread per day, and the line can operate 24/7 without intervention. Other features include remote maintenance, removable cooling plate and elements, easy cleaning and energy-saving operations.
