Bakeries are highly profitable businesses, as the cost of the ingredients is considerably less than the cost of the final product. This is because if you sell a good amount of bread and other products, the profits can be very good.
The first thing you should do before buying equipment specially designed for bakeries is to be clear about the type of business you want to start; especially because on this will rely the type of machinery you will need.
In this post we present an equipment guide to ensure the quality and correct preparation of breads and related. At gaux we have the best equipment for your business and we want to make sure that you cover your operational needs.
The main machinery you need in your bakery is the one whose function is to prepare the dough. That´s to say, join all the elements and mix them until obtaining a completely homogeneous product before fermentation and baking.
We are talking about the mixers as a determining factor to obtain a good quality bread; especially because good kneading produces optimal excitation of gluten and yeast. As result, the bread rises.
And not only that, it also improves the taste, as it gives the dough a certain sweetness flavor. A good kneading will optimize sugars, giving as result a better taste, especially in pastries. In any case, there are 5 types that you get in gaux:
1. L-Shaped Mixer
It is used for pastry and soft, wholemeal and rye doughs. The kneading time ranges between 18 and 30 minutes, so it is a slow machine. Therefore, it forces the addition of yeast halfway through kneading to initially reduce the strength of the dough.
2. Spiral Mixer
It stands out for its speed, which leads to a reduction in kneading time. In addition, it allows supplying a production line without having to increase the mixing capacity.
3. Fork Mixer
It is a slow kneading system with low overheating that allows optimal oxygenation of the dough without overheating it. Additionally, it adapts well for both, hard dough on the first speed, and soft dough on the second.
4. Planetary mixers
They are machines designed to knead, beat and mix ingredients. They are industrial pastry and bakery mixers widely used in workshops.
5. Lifter mixer
It is used to raise the fermented dough to the necessary height and then send it to the laminator.Within your business plan, you must include a list with all the bakery tools and instruments that you are going to need, ordered from the most essential and expensive. Click To Tweet
