They include the Exact MX Continuous Mixer, our most versatile mixer, which is well suited for a wide range of products including pizza, cookies, snacks, batters, icings, and pastes, the Exact EX Continuous Mixer, which is ideal for crackers, pretzels, sweet goods, pet treats and other wheat-based products, and the Exact HDX or High Development Continuous Mixer, which is designed for ultra-high absorption doughs, such as buns, breads, rolls and English muffins.
