Bakery Manufacturing Machine

Reading Bakery Systems (RBS) can help you meet your snack food manufacturing challenges with high quality commercial machines and systems. Our equipment line includes cost-effective mixing, dough handling, forming, baking, and drying solutions for every part of your process.

As a long-time global leader in the snack food industry, RBS proudly offers the world’s most advanced equipment from Thomas L. Green, which has supplied the biscuit, cracker and cookie industries since 1893, Reading Bakery Systems, whose long history of oven manufacturing expertise dates back to 1947, and Exact Mixing, the world’s most innovative developer of Continuous Mixing solutions.

Continuous Mixing Solutions

To produce a consistent dough and finished product, consider our Continuous Mixing technology. Continuous mixing offers numerous advantages over batch mixing, and Exact Mixing offers several mixer models that are appropriate for different types of products.

The Exact Mixing EX Continuous Mixer, for example, is ideal for crackers, pretzels, pie crusts, sweet goods, pet treats and a variety of other wheat-based snacks. It uniformly mixes products with a variety of dough moisture levels. This mixer offers dough production rates from 50 to 10,000 kg/hour.

Our most versatile mixer is the Exact Mixing MX Continuous Mixer. It is well suited for a wide range of products including pizza, cookies, snacks, batters, icings, and pastes. It is also an ideal first stage mixer for processes that require creme up and pre-blend stages.

Dough Handling Equipment

RBS is proud to offer customers an extensive range of equipment for dough handling and forming in between the mixer and the oven.

For extruded and co-extruded products, the Reading Pretzel Low Pressure (LP) Extruder enables consistent and accurate production of a variety of structural, flat and filled extruded shapes and sticks.

The Thomas L. Green Rotary Moulder efficiently produces high definition, three dimensional rotary molded biscuits, cookies and pet treats.

For sheeted snacks, the Thomas L. Green Sheeter creates a consistent dough sheet, and Gauging Stations ensure accurate thickness prior to forming. Form scrapless geometric shapes and distinct shapes with the Rotary Cutting Station.

Innovative Oven Technology

The biscuit, cookie and cracker industry has trusted Thomas L. Green ovens for more than 120 years. The PRISM OVEN is designed to enhance product consistency. Features include:

  • Direct gas fired (DGF), convection, and Emithermic (radiant / convection) baking zones
  • Better baking efficiency with uniform quality, color, taste and texture
  • Repeatable control of time, temperature, humidity and type of heat transfer

When your product line involves pretzels, bread snacks, potato chips and other crisp baked snacks, the flexible Reading Pretzel SPECTRUM OVEN® offers the same flexibility as the PRISM OVEN and features:

  • Radiation, convection and conduction heat transfer options
  • Repeatable control of time, temperature, humidity and type of heat transfer
  • Separate heating zones for more precise control
  • Stainless steel interior construction

A separate optional Multi-Pass Dryer provides faster oven speeds, greater production throughput, and more process control. The Dryer efficiently reduces product core moistures, improving overall quality and storage characteristics.
