Mono has unveiled an Integrated Deck Loader designed to take the strain out of manually loading each oven deck. 

The new equipment is “ideal for artisan bakers”, according to the company, as it is designed to load products directly onto the oven sole, reducing manual handling of the dough. This alleviates undue stress on the final product and helps to ensure even heat distribution, which Mono said is perfect for traditional oven-bottom bread.

The loader also reduces the risk of bakers burning themselves on hot oven components, according to the supplier, which added that the loader can increase productivity, save time between bakes and reduce energy from heat loss during door-open times on loading.

Earlier this month Mono launched a new oven range, following consultation with bakeries.
