One of the largest industrial bakeries in Europe produces a wide range of bread, pastry and cake products. These are being sold under their own brand name and as private label products all over the world.
Recently they started looking into how they can improve production efficiency to create more higher quality homogeneous products. One of the processes that needed to be improved was the egg glazing application.
Egg glazing can be a difficult process when you’re not using the right equipment for the job. In this case the production lines were relying on operators to manually apply the egg wash with a brush. This approach caused a lot of issues that were hurting the final quality of the product:
- • Inaccurate dosage
- • Bad distribution
- • Low production speed
To improve on the situation the bakery decided to look for a spray solution to replace the manual brush approach. The system would need to deliver on a number of specific goals:
- • Automated
- • Better distribution
- • Dosage control
- • Higher production speed
- • More hygienic
