Swansea-based machinery firm Mono Equipment hosted an open day at Miller’s Vanguard’s Training facility in Bury earlier this month, to display the latest machinery, designed to increase efficiency, productivity and profit.

Among the exhibitors were Mono Equipment, Bakon Food Equipment and Rondo Doge.

Mono was promoting its Omega Depositor, which deposits muffins, cupcakes and biscuits, that were then baked on its deck ovens.

Ronde Doge displayed its Sheeting and Polyline, which sheets dough, before filling it, rolling it and cutting it into products such as cinnamon Danish pastries.

Another machine on display was Bakon’s Ultrasonic Cutter, which is capable of cutting through trays of freshly baked custard slices, without the blade even touching the product, enabling minimal wastage.

Its Enrobing/Finishing machine can also produce a constant flow of fondant icing over a continuously moving conveyor belt of Danish pastries, traditional custard slices and Belgian buns.
