Universal Pastry Line
One of Rademakers newest innovations is their universal pastry line. Taking feedback from their customers, they developed a highly efficient pastry production line with the lowest cost of ownership possible. Its features include the tool assistant and hygienic design. The tool assistant saves line configurations and tooling info and holds a chronological list of tools, simplifying changeovers. To improve the hygienic design of the universal pastry line, Rademaker looked at every aspect of the line. Edges are all rounded, tools are mounted with standoffs at least 1 inch off the surface, and they eliminated recesses and cavities. The resulting open design allows for easy, quick, and safe operation and cleaning.
Rademaker knows that as bakery technology continues to innovate, there are fewer individuals educated in industrial baking technology. This knowledge gap can lead to problems in production line operation and dough processing. Particularly as the industry moves toward advanced dough sheeting, Rademaker believes that closing that education gap will enable a production line to maximize profitability and ultimately, the profitability of the bakery itself. Developed by a multidisciplinary team of technologists, service engineers and commissioners, Rademaker Academy offers three training courses: basic sheeting technology, advanced training, and production line and process efficiency. The courses are provided at Rademaker’s headquarters in the Netherlands, and are offered before a production line is installed, so there is no production downtime for bakeries.
