Baker Perkins (Peterborough), formerly APV Baker, is offering an upgraded control system for Tweedy mixers. The company says that most Tweedy mixers in daily use are mechanically sound, but their control systems are obsolete and provide limited functionality. Upgrading these improves performance and extends the life of the machine.

Tweedy mixers are fitted with one of three types of control system, each of which has a different upgrade level. Although tailored to suit individual requirements, control systems are based on standard components. Baker Perkins’ offers site survey and design of the system, plus commissioning and operator training.
