The market for artisan bread is not only growing, it’s diversifying. In addition to homemade taste and rustic appearance, consumers today are seeking out heirloom grains, functional flours, protein supplementation, and more. At the same time, they still want clean labels with minimal ingredients.
Whatever artisan-style breads you make — baguettes, boules, ciabatta, rolls, and so on — you need equipment designed to handle challenging high-hydration doughs. Naegele Bakery Systems offers a wide range of bakery processing solutions to ensure that every product that comes off of your line looks and tastes authentic.
Automated equipment for artisan bread production lines
To make high-quality products, you need a high-quality mixer. Our continuous and roller bar mixers are designed to develop uniform dough structures and gluten networks.
A high-quality dough divider is the key to achieving consistent portions every time. We offer three types of dough dividers to meet your handling and capacity requirements.
Dough sheeting technology enables manufacturers to make artisan breads at an industrial scale. Our sheeting lines provide gentle, stress-free dough handling to ensure the dough is not damaged or degassed during processing.
Whatever your dough’s crumb structure or water content, we have moulders that provide gentle handling at high capacities.
Our rounders can run a wide range of dough consistencies, including the fermented and high-hydration doughs typical of artisan breads.
Tired of throwing away under- or over-proofed dough? Our proofers will help you reduce waste by increasing reliable consistency and product quality.
The oven is the heart of your artisan bread production line. Choose from our selection of impingement, gas-fired, and thermal oil ovens to find the one that best meets your requirements.
Spiral coolers and freezers
Spiral coolers and freezers provide rapid heat extraction and even cooling / freezing across the belt. Our equipment features a specialized air distribution system that guarantees sensitive products will not be damaged and prevents excessive dehydration.
Pans and bakeware
The right bakeware is crucial for the quality and consistency of your final product. We offer straps, pans, and baking trays for every product.
