In addition to the Kaak Group’s industrial “mono lines” described in this section of the website, automation is also available for bakery lines with a larger variety of bread types. The Multi-Product line is the ideal solution when the production volume of one bread type does not justify full automation with a mono-line.
The strength of the line concept is that it combines conveyors, final proofers, oven and cooling successively for differing products. Two or three independent dough production lines (rolls and buns, large bread, baguette, sheeting, laminating) are merged together into a combined layout.
Although each make-up line does not produce throughout the whole day, the remaining systems (such as the proofer, the oven and cooling) can be used efficiently by one of the other dough make-up systems.
The Thermal-Oil DAUB oven is the heart of the total line. It is a “multi-deck” oven, equipped with several baking levels. Each deck is totally independent and can bake different kinds of products. Behind the oven, the unloader will ensure that product flows do not mix. The Multi-Product line is “tailor-made” and dedicated to the customer’s needs in terms of capacities, product assortment and required daily output. The testimonial from Stuyver’s Bread (Canada) offers an impression of a Kaak Group Multi-Product line.
The Multi-Product line concept combines production flexibility with industrial efficiency.
