The M-TA oven

The new technologies MECATHERM is launching at iba will be the highlights at the stand, starting with the new oven (M-TA oven), the new conveying system (M-UB handling system), and the new dough divider (M-NS divider).

The M-TA oven was designed with complete versatility in mind, and industrial trends for 100% productivity, meaning no product loss and reduced cost of operation. It has a modular construction, built in independent compact modules. Each module comes with its own, independent types of heat transfer options. Airflow circuits giving an extremely homogenous flow throughout the oven’s width ensure the oven’s precision. In addition, it adapts to the number of products inside and allows quick changes from one product to the next, while consuming less energy.

MECATHERM is also launching a new modular handling system, the M-UB handling system, that ensures products are delicately handled. Its trays are on a continuous loop, which means a homogenous transport in every process step. No shocks affect the product, so there is no danger that it could collapse, and there is no friction, which ensures food safety through no risk of contamination.

In addition, the new M-NS divider is a high-precision machine (+/- 2% standard deviation), with a product range starting at 250g, and capacity of up to 4,000 baguettes/hour. Its main advantages are benefits in product quality, especially authenticity, the specialist told us, with the added value of a low cost of ownership. The machine’s working principle comprises the stages: generating a calibrated piece of dough, dough sheet formation, cutting the dough, and final calibration.


MULTIVAC will be presenting a complete range of solutions for packing bread, bakery products, biscuits, and snacks.


In addition to two chamber machines, the exhibits will also include a compact thermoforming packaging machine and a tray sealer. Various compact machine models for producing MAP packs will be shown at the trade fair, including the R 085 e-concept thermoforming packaging machine. 



RADEMAKER introduces a wide range of completely new generation production machines: high-end industrial breadline, midrange/medium capacity breadline, high-end industrial pastry line, midrange/medium capacity pastry and croissant line; concept midrange sheeting line; advanced new croissant molding systems; and several depositing machines.

SASA Demarle – B2/230

Pierre Escarbelt

SASA is introducing iNFiNiUM® 6001, the new generation of silicone-based non-stick coating.The iNFiNiUM® 6001 can not only be successfully used at all times to supersede the previous iNFiNiUM® 601, but it can also now be considered as a better option when PTFE or PFA non-stick coatings were used, thanks to its newly extended characteristics,” Pierre Escarbelt, sales and marketing director, Groupe Sasa Demarle, tells us. The new silicone coating solution is as versatile as the previous iNFiNiUM® 601, with great results for baking crusty bread, on all automatic lines, whether equipped with an upfront heat booster or not.

SASA has developed the new generation of silicone with greatly improved characteristics, whether on abrasion or on temperatures, for reducing the CAPEX and OPEX of the industrial bakers. The iNFiNiUM® 6001 can withstand more than 5,000 baking cycles, up from 3,500 with the previous solution. It can also withstand operating temperature up to 260°C, easily competing with other type of non-stick coating chemical formula (e.g. PTFE or PFA), whereas the iNFiNiUM® 601 was limited to 240°C. For an improved thermal performance, the color of the new coating is now charcoal grey, darker than the previously used light grey.

Sveba Dahlen – A6/311

The cloud solution, svebaconnect, part of middlebyconnect, is among highlights for Sveba Dahlen.

The company will present a new S-Series combination oven, a new Prover F-Series (the F500 will be shown), and the updated rack oven C252 (new design) and also with core temperature.
