Sigma and Spiromatic recently announced the creation of SCUDO, a joint venture with over 100 years of combined expertise, created to offer innovative dough-mixing solutions for the bakery and industrial pastry markets.
The Italian company Sigma, a manufacturer of kneading machines and planetary mixers, and the Belgian Spiromatic, specialized in pre-food processing, announced the birth of SCUDO, a joint venture created to become a worldwide reference in automated and customized dough mixing solutions for industrial production.
SCUDO, Specialized and CUstomized DOugh-mixing solutions, supports its customers facing the challenges of the market by taking care of the production peculiarities of each context.
The implementation of new technologies, the reduction of costs and waste of production process, the control and management of increasingly complex production systems are just some of these challenges.
“We want to offer customized solutions starting from the specific needs of our customers,” says Stefano Salvadori, president of SCUDO. “This approach allows us to design unique dough-mixing solutions with the cutting-edge technologies. We manage the whole project: from manufacturing and assembling, to the integration of automated solutions and installation, and up to after-sales services”.
SCUDO puts together the 100 years of experience of the founding companies with a strong focus on the automation.
“Global competition has led many companies to diversify their offer, therefore increasing the complexity of the production systems,” says Dirk Dhont, director of SCUDO. “SCUDO solutions aim to master this complexity, improving customers’ flexibility and making them more reactive to market stress”
“SCUDO mixing solutions integrate and automate all dough production process phases. This allows constant monitoring of performance parameters to optimize production flow in real time,” said Andrea Gnocchi, R&D manager of SCUDO. “Through the planning of the predictive maintenance activity we reduce machine downtime, increase production efficiency, and achieve better safety standards”.
