LeMatic is targeting mid-sized to small bakeries with
a new system for bread slicing and bagging, the LS3 Bulk
Packer. The system can process up to 22 packages a minute in plants with small to medium production volumes.
According to Mr. Woods, LeMatic is also set to unveil
a new LX-8i bun bagger at IBIE. "This is an inline system without any directional changes in the flow of the
product," he explained.
Meanwhile, closures used with baggers for breads and
buns are also a focus of improvements. Mr. Lindsey noted the role that effective twist ties can play in bagging
bread and bun products.
As demand increases for bread and bun production,
and bakers continue to focus on speed and versatility, updates in bagging equipment will help them keep pace.
