Tailor-made solutions for the bakery industry

Whether kneading system, conveyor belt or continuous furnace: Modern bakeries operate numerous automated processes – and all of them are equipped with at least one individual electric drive system. These drive systems are an important factor in automated bakery production and deserve attention for several reasons. On the one hand, they have to meet demanding requirements, for example, in terms of hygiene – keyword: food safety – and reliability. On the other hand, these drives can offer significant potential for increasing energy efficiency and reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
