The increasing demand for healthier bread will increase the demand for technologically advanced baking equipment over the next six years.

According to data released by the Data Bridge Market Research, the Bakery Processing Equipment Market will grow to USD 11.2 billion by 2026, from USD 7.6 billion in 2018, marking a 4.9 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR). This demand for better equipment is seen as a driver for market growth. 

The research suggested that the production of healthier bread, like those which contain multi-grains, whole-grains and nuts, would require higher advanced baking equipment. 

The shifting preference towards multi-grain bread

Bread consumption patterns are changing, with more consumers gearing away from white bread. The Global Bread Market report found that more consumers now prefer multigrain, wholegrain, ethnic and seeded bread kinds. This changing pattern is driven by consumers’ desire for more nutritious products. 

Cholesterol reduction, weight management, higher protein intake and sugar control are key players in modern consumer trends in the bread industry. New varieties of low-carb, high-fiber bread that appeal to the health-conscious, triggered market growth. 

Lesser-known grains, such as millet and ragi, have gained popularity in the bakery industry. In addition, natural ingredients such as natural preservatives, enzymes and anti-oxidants are on the rise. Companies are now targeting to replace shortenings and fat with Omega-9 and Omega-3. 

Increased demand for better baking equipment

The increased demand for multi-grain bread, in turn, increases the demand for better baking equipment. The Global Bakery Processing Equipment Market is forecast to rise rapidly in the coming years. 

The market is segmented into five segments: type, application, end-user, mode of operation and function. Some of the most notable findings include:

On the basis of type, the market share for Mixers (this category comprises of continuous mixers, double planetary mixers, specialty mixers and spiral mixers) is projected to reach USD 5.95 billion by 2025, with a CAGR of 6.2 percent starting 2019.

Again, on the basis of type, the market share for Ovens and Proofers (this category comprises of electric ovens, gas ovens and special ovens) is projected to have a CAGR of 6.0 percent starting 2019.

On the basis of application, the Cookies & Biscuits market is growing, with a CAGR of 6.2 starting 2019 going to 2026. This sector comprises proofers & retarders, slicers & dividers, sheeters, molders, pan greasers & depositors, freezers & coolers, handling systems, dough feeding systems and piston filling injectors (like single head piston fillers). 

On the basis of mode of operation, the Automatic segment is growing with the highest CAGR of 6.2 percent in the forecast period of 2019 to 2026.

Healthier bread by the numbers

Healthy bread

According to a survey conducted by London-based consultancy New Nutrition Business, they found out that 61 percent of respondents believe whole grain products are good for their digestive health. Meanwhile, the Grain Foods Foundation in Washington said that white bread contains 2 grams of fiber per 100 grams, while whole wheat bread contains 6.5 grams of fiber per 100 grams. Fiber helps with digestion and helps prevent constipation.

Europe holds the largest share in the global bread market. Now, there is a rising consumer preference for value-added, ethnic, fresh and artisanal bread in the continent.

The increasing demand for healthier bread options has promoted a boost in demand for better baking equipment. If your bakery needs upgrading, reach out to us at Volumetric Technologies. We have helped customers increase their productivity and decrease their costs by providing reliable filling equipment that drive up the efficiency and accuracy of their production lines.

Choosing the Right Table Top Conveyor for Your Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Business

The pharmaceutical industry develops and manufactures drugs that prevent, treat, cure, or diagnose illness or disease. This sector, particularly the global pharmaceuticals market, is growing at a steady pace. A recent report by The Business Research Company, a market research firm, revealed that the market would grow from $934.8 billion in 2017 to $1.17 Trillion in 2021.

If you plan to enter the thriving pharmaceutical manufacturing business, one of the pieces of equipment you’ll need is a conveyor for the production line of pharmaceutical and medical products. Getting the right machine for your facility is crucial, as you’ll need a machine that performs product accumulation, high-speed filling, packaging, labeling, and tracking accurately, cleanly, and safely.

Here are some of the factors you need to consider when buying a table top conveyor for your pharmaceutical manufacturing facility:

Safety and Sanitation

Check if the conveyor system you want has features that help you adhere to the sanitation and safety standards of your facility. See if the machine offers one or more of the following:

  • Stainless steel or anodized aluminum frames
  • Lockable reject bins that can catch all non-compliant pharmaceutical and medical items
  • Photo eyes or vision systems that can help assist with product inspection

Belting

woman working with manufacturing

The kind of belt you need for your conveyor would depend on the products in your facility. Keeping lightweight pharmaceuticals, such as pills and capsules, in place on a conveyor can be difficult due to their weight. This also makes orientation and precise spacing a challenge during processing.

If you’re thinking about installing conventional flat or thin belts, you may want to reconsider. Medications, for instance, can’t force the belt to stay flat. Additionally, thin belts could curl when placed under tension. Instead of conventional belts, opt for vacuum belting. As well as being fully customizable, vacuum belting can help hold down light pharmaceuticals.

Transfers

Most pharma products have a size that is less than an inch, which means that transferring items from one conveyor to another can be a challenge. So if you’re getting a conveyor system, you will need one that has a roller diameter of less than an inch. Otherwise, the items will fall between the conveyors.

The roller diameter of conventional conveyor systems is 1.26 inches or bigger. You, however, can find machines with end rollers that are 0.63 in diameter. Alternatively, you can choose conveyors with nose bars that can effectively transfer pharma products with a size of less than an inch.

Conveyors aren’t simply machines that move products from one location to another, they are integral to the accuracy, cleanliness, and safety of the pharmaceutical manufacturing process. Consideration of the previously mentioned factors when choosing a conveyor can help you produce top-quality pharma items for your clients.

The Top 3 Features of Filling Machines That Boost Productivity

Bakeries rely on the quality of their manufacturing equipment as much as they rely on the skill of their bakers. Without a great oven to cook their pastries in or mixers to whip their batter, even the most talented confectioner will have difficulty turning a profit.

However, a bakery isn’t just about ovens and mixers. A good bakery also needs top-notch filling / depositing equipment to inject sweet fillings into their baked goods or apply icing to their pies and cakes.

Without decent filling machinery, bakers must accomplish these things by hand, an inefficient substitute. This is truer for large-scale bakeries rather than mom-and-pop operations. Well-designed and engineered machinery is a necessity.

But when choosing their filling equipment, bakery owners should consider these three signs of an excellent piece of machinery.

Efficiency

When your business needs to deliver dozens upon dozens of pies and thousands of cream-filled goodies, you’re going to need all the help you can get. Find a machine that can perform your filling steps quickly and efficiently to ensure that not a second of your day is wasted. Ask the manufacturer what their machines’ filling volume is, how many cycles does it complete every minute, and what size particulate can the machine’s nozzles accommodate. See if their answers align with the type of baked goods you’re expecting the machine to handle.

You also want a machine that can accomplish its task accurately. No matter how fast a filling machine operates, drips and overfilled product results in unacceptable losses. By eliminating product waste, a good filling machine saves money based on how accurately it can dispense product repeatably.

Versatility

checking machines

A good filling machine helps you meet your bakery’s production target by the end of the day. But a great one also offers you versatility.

Multiple dispensing nozzles and modular assembly features allow you to get more out of your filling machine. Bakeries with multiple products that require filling can use the same machine for different functions. Instead of purchasing two machines, great filling equipment can be reconfigured after each batch is completed to assist in the production of another product.

A bakery that produces pies, eclairs, and iced cupcakes can produce all three desserts with ease from the same machine.

Cleanliness

Even if a machine is versatile enough to help produce multiple kinds of desserts and pastries, it must also be easy to clean. With too many parts to clean or poor design that inhibits efforts to sanitize it thoroughly, a filling machine is equally likely to contaminate food as much as it pumps pastries full of sweet cream.

An ideal filling machine can easily be disassembled for regular cleaning without requiring tools, and is made of materials that are durable and easy to clean. A machine that helps speed up cleaning processes is also a boost to production, as it reduces downtime between batches.

When a bakery owner finds a filling machine with all three of these features, they’ve not only found a machine that can boost their profits, they’ve found a tool they can rely on.

A Brand Synonymous with Quality and Dependability

Volumetric Technologies’ line of American-made, stainless steel filling / depositing machines have all the above capabilities and more, providing bakers and other manufacturers the equipment they need to really help their businesses thrive.

Baking Boom: How to Increase Bakery Profits and Production

According to the American Bakers Association, the combined revenue of the bakery industry in the United States contributed 2.1 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product. These bakeries comprise approximately 3,000 independent outfits and 6,000 retail bakeries. The former brings in $30 million in revenue every year, and the latter does $3 billion annually.

Volumetric Technologies can offer bakeries of all sizes the advice and the equipment you need to increase the productivity and profitability of your operation. This process begins with acquiring top-notch equipment.

Machinery Matters

Our product line includes Bakery Belt Conveyors and Piston Depositors. Like all of our products, we designed these machines for versatility throughout your full range of products. You can customize them to suit the output of your bakery, and their stainless steel construction makes them perfect for the hygienic requirements of the food industry.

Making your bakery profitable starts with purchasing machinery that matter, that contributes to the success of your business. However, your path to improved productivity and profitability also involves streamlining your production line and using innovative marketing methods.

Perfecting Production

As a product provider, you have to match your customers’ demands with just the right amount of supply. Once you have the perfect equipment to produce your baked goods, you’ll need to synchronize your production line. By scheduling and timing the activities of everyone involved in the baking process, you can increase the number of orders in a given period. Synchronization also makes the quality of your products more consistent. You can even use the time gained from the efficient flow to expand the number of products your bakery offers.

Often times your primary consideration for synchronizing your bakery is the oven. Its capacities dictate how many products you produce and how long you have to wait to produce the next batch. The oven becomes the benchmark of your production line, and you should time all related activities to its capacity. This will ensure little to no delays between baking batches and increase the output of your bakery.

Of course, once your delicious products are out of the oven, you’re going to need a creative way to tempt people into purchasing them. This is where savvy marketing steps in.

Marvelous Marketing

The key to making your bakery’s brand stand out is to determine your business’s unique selling proposition. What makes your bakery better than others? Tapping into specialized segments of the consumer market or popular dietary trends will benefit you here. Consider serving vegan options or keto-friendly merchandise. Perhaps you can advertise that your ingredients come from local vendors or strictly within the United States.

Once you’ve locked on to your unique selling proposition, use new mediums to spread the word. Social media platforms and digital frontiers offer you ways to reach untold millions of potential customers. They also give you methods to easily engage with your potential and actual customers, which can give you an edge over the competition.

Synchronized production lines and smart marketing campaigns, however, all depend on your ability to create quality products in enough quantities.

Designed for Efficiency

Volumetric Technologies can supply you with the machinery you need to boost your bakery’s profits and production. Through our solutions, you’ll eliminate delays and breaks in your product processing line. Whether you need an upgrade or looking to increase the efficiency and consistency in your operations, we’ll fulfill your needs.

How Filling Equipment Helped Change The Packaging Industry

The packaging industry has come a long way thanks to various equipment that has made the process easier. Before, it was particularly hard to properly fill liquid containers because of spills and inaccurate measurements.

There is a wide variety of filling equipment available in today’s market. From pressure fillers to piston fillers and pump fillers, there is something out there that can address your filling challenges in a convenient and efficient way.

Simpler and easier

Filling equipment eliminated various filling problems such as inaccurate and sloppy filling that resulted in contaminated and low-quality products.

Filling equipment also helped increase production rates. Because of a simple, systematic filling approach, the filling process can now be done twice as fast without fear of imprecise measurements. This results in more products being produced in a shorter period of time with fewer waste.

Some of these filling machines are also equipped with touch screen HMI’s with menu-driven control for easier operation. These machines require little manual adjustments and minimal human intervention during production.

Secured and safe products

As we all know, food and other products such as cosmetics, require very careful handling and packaging because they can be hazardous to health when exposed to contaminants.

Filling equipment revolutionized packaging food and beverages as well as cosmetic products by making sure that they are packed safely and free from contaminants.

Multi-purpose

Many filling equipment today is compatible with food and non-food products. They can be used to transfer and/or fill containers with fluids of varying viscosity, from free-flowing liquids to thick creams.

Volumetric Technologies’ filling equipment is made from high-grade stainless steel and is durable enough to withstand sanitation chemicals used in food manufacturing. When pumping specialty chemical products, we adapt our equipment to ensure proper operation and longevityin your application.

Fully integratable and upgradeable

Aside from the convenience they bring, filling machines are fully integratable and upgradeable. As the company expands, the demand for more finished products will also increase. With increased finished products often brings more packaging equipment. Modern filling equipment has the capabilities to fully integrate with other packaging equipment. If you do not require integration initially, your equipment is upgradeable in the future to meet your integration needs.

The packaging industry would indeed be very different without filling equipment. We would still be stuck with inaccurate fill volumes or lots of waste product due to sealing issues. The convenience and speed of production they have provided us are incomparable. What is more, technological advancements will soon pave the way to more highly innovative filling machines in the future.

Choosing a Conveyor System for Food Processing? Stainless Steel is a Great Option

Businesses operating in the food processing industry can benefit from using stainless steel over other materials. According to a report made by the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, stainless steel is chemically inert. Its constituent metals do not transfer to or react with food in any significant way. On top of that, the material is versatile. People can manufacture stainless steel into smooth, non-absorbent utensils, equipment, and surfaces.

Companies that need conveyor automation technologies to safely and effectively process and handle edible products, such as ice cream, frozen pizzas, and seafood, can choose conveyor systems constructed with stainless steel. Here’s why this is a great option:

Preserves Flavor

One of the most important qualitative measures for any food is taste. This measure, in fact, is consumers’ number one preference for new foods and beverages. When it comes to food processing, many lower-grade conveyors could affect the quality and flavor of the ingredient or product going through the conveyor equipment. A few select conveyor belt materials, on the other hand, do not affect the quality and flavor. On top of that, food processing conveyors are less likely to produce particulates that could contaminate the products.

Easy to Clean

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has strict requirements for food processing equipment. Facility managers must take every effort to clean the equipment frequently and avoid the spread of disease and bacteria. The good news is that cleaning is easy with conveyor systems made of stainless steelwith special designs for easy sanitation.There are many belt options and some of them have a nonporous and flat surface and do not absorb bacteria.

Sanitizing stainless steel conveyors is easy, as well. Spraying the equipment down with sanitation solutions and scrubbing it thoroughly will eliminate any germs lingering on the surface.

Ideal for Freezing and Cooking Applications

cooking-meat

Stainless steel belts are highly resistant to extreme temperatures. These belts:

Hold up to high heat without losing their shape

Transition smoothly from a freezing stage to a cooking stage (and vice versa)

Are more reliable and last much longer than plastic belts under extreme temperatures

Are great for handling and cooking raw ingredients. They cook food evenly and thoroughly, thanks to the even and quick transfer of heat.

Indeed, a stainless steel constructed conveyor is an excellent piece of equipment in a food processing facility, as it preserves flavor, is easy to clean, and is great for applications that involve cooking and freezing. If you’re looking for this type of conveyor, Volumetric Technologies has what you need. You can easily integrate our stainless steel constructed table-top chain conveyors into your existing machines.

Our conveyors are also available in hygienic, closed top, and open top designs. We produce them for use with all kinds of packaging and filling machines to convey goods to and from various manufacturing lines. Get in touch with us today for inquiries about our conveyors.

Smells Like Profit: Basic Tools You Need for Your Perfume Business

Over the five years leading to 2017, the perfume and fragrance manufacturing industry in the US enjoyed economic growth. More and more consumers spent money on luxury goods in both cosmetics and department stores. In 2017 alone, the industry reached $3 billion in revenue. This data is according to the most recent market report by industry research firm IBISWorld.

If you’re starting a business in this industry, you don’t necessarily have to start big and compete with the giants. Instead, you can run a small perfume business. You can start by drafting a business plan, which includes your product offerings, your target resellers, startup costs, and projected cash flow. On the manufacturing side, you also have to consider where to get your containers and how you plan to make the product. Once the product is made, you also have to consider how to package it. If the business is relatively smaller, there are some basic tools you can’t be without:

Measuring Equipment

In the creation of the perfume, hygiene and accuracy should be the top priorities. To filter fragrances and measure all raw ingredients accurately, you should use measuring equipment like glass measuring cylinders, beakers, and flasks. You should also have a thermometer if a recipe requires a certain temperature for a specific ingredient. But before you use any of these tools, you should wash the glass cylinders and flasks with soapy water and sterilize them with ethanol.

Digital Scale

While cylinders and flasks can do a good job measuring your raw ingredients like oils and other liquids, you can also use a digital scale to weigh out the blends. Digital scales are the best tools you can use for replication of formula and volume accuracy.

Disposable Plastic Pipettes

Pipettes are vital in the entire perfume-making process. You use these to carefully and accurately transfer small amounts of different liquids. They can also be heat-sealed to store samples. While glass Pasteur pipettes come with distinct advantages, such as resistance to high temperature, solvents, and acids, a small-scale perfume business should use disposable plastic pipettes, instead. That is because it is not advisable to use the same dropper for various fragrances. Otherwise, you risk mixing different scents, especially if you haven’t properly sterilized the glass pipette.

Testing Strips

Since you’re now running a business, you might want to get the suggestions and recommendations of as many people as possible regarding your product. You can do so with testing strips, which are free from contaminants. So why not just spray the scent on the body? Perfumes react according to body chemistry, oils, odor, and temperature, which may, in turn, affect the fragrance. The strips, on the other hand, provide a neutral testing area, allowing the true fragrance to come forth.

Bottles and Vials

Once you’ve perfected your signature scents, it’s time to place them in stylish bottles and vials. These not only serve as your containers but are also a representation of your brand, just like any other packaging product. You must make sure that they are well-sterilized and free from pollutants and other chemicals, so they don’t compromise the quality of your perfume.

Like your raw ingredients – oils, flowers, and spring water – the basic tools are necessary and crucial to your budding business. Invest in high-quality products and make sure that you take care of them properly.  Also, be meticulous about proper sterilization and storage of all implements and containers, to ensure that your perfume smells the way it should. From the packaging perspective, if you’re small and just starting out, or expanding your business, you may want to invest in bigger tools, like our filling machines. With machines from small and simple bench top fillers to fully automatic filling lines, we are your solution for filling equipment. Fill out this form for information about our products.

Responding to Customer Demands with Liquid Filling Lines

The food manufacturing industry has seen continuous growth for the past few years. According to Food Engineering’s 2016 Annual State of Food Manufacturing Survey, sales have been consistently high in the industry. The same can be said for 2017 as revealed in that year’s survey.

But along with the increase in sales comes the increase in production demand. To respond to the growing demands, manufacturers felt the need to make improvements in their production.

How Manufacturers Are Improving Their Production

According to the 2016 survey, some manufacturers have invested in infrastructure to expand their plants and increase their production rates. Data from the succeeding year’s report saw companies reaping the benefits of expanding their capacity.

Many companies have also focused on upgrading their equipment as a response to the significant decrease of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) in 2016. Respondents said that they set aside around 22 percent of their company’s total budget for new production, packaging, and process control equipment, while 88 percent of the respondents expressed plans to upgrade their existing equipment.

New Priorities Leave Food Safety Behind

As a response to rising consumer demands, workplace expansion and equipment upgrades became the new priorities for manufacturers. Unfortunately, existing priorities and other important aspects of the industry were left in the backseat.

Food safety management, for example, saw a drastic decline. In 2018 alone, Food Engineering has reported at least six cases of companies recalling various food items for the possible presence of salmonella, E.coli, and other disease-carrying microorganisms. To combat this situation, manufacturers intensified their focus on allergen-controlling procedures and preventative control points to reduce the health risks of their food products.

Consistent Quality Products

Your customers will keep coming back for your sweet treats if you’re consistent with the quality of your products. It’s crucial to stick with the recipe you know your customers enjoy. This will mean a focus on quality control to maintain the flavor of your baked goods.

Part of quality control entails checking your ingredients to ensure that they do not contain anything that might damage your reputation. For instance, check if your flour contains metal objects or if it has pest infestation.

Another check point for quality control is your employees; you’ll need to make sure everyone on your staff has sufficient training in your processes and for using the equipment.

With proper quality control, you can improve not only your products but your yield as well.

Make sure you have a comprehensive safety plan and compliance with all sanitary codes in your area.

Plan Your Business

Starting a business requires a deft hand as one would need when mixing wet and dry ingredients. You need to spend time on research and planning to find the right mix for a successful bakeshop.
