As iba opens its doors in Munich, Germany from 22-26 October 2023 DEBAG will be presenting, among other solutions, the new deck baking oven DEDEC, the new control generation networking software and other product innovations. These new solutions are aimed at reducing time and costs and optimising the workflow in bakeries.
Under the motto, ‘The whole world of baking united at the DEBAG trade fair stand’, international baking stars will be presenting the company’s new products and demonstrate their skills in live shows at the company stand including Kullanan Wilaiwan from Thailand, Owner of the Grainbaker baking school, champion baker Johnny Chen from Thailand and Bread Sommelier Paul Müller from Germany.
More than 50% of baking processes are affected by user errors, said the company, in spite of user-friendly controls. With the support of its Oven Station Assistant, developed in cooperation with PreciTaste, it aims to reduce these errors and make them a thing of the past.
The assistant system uses AI and camera technology to recognise the type and quantity of baked goods as they are about to be baked. Oven parameters are set automatically, helping to reduce user errors. As a result, the program helps to reduce energy costs and guarantees a high quality of baked goods. A live demonstration of the new assistance system will be a highlight at the company stand.
In addition to this, DEBAG is introducing the new D-Control generation, marking a step towards standardisation with the aim to roll out a uniform control system for the entire DEBAG portfolio.
This will make it easier for users to operate their equipment alongside the new, cloud-based D-Connect networking software which is being shown for the first time at iba. This allows an unlimited number of ovens, proofing and refrigeration products to be networked, controlled and evaluated at any time and from any location.
The new deck baking oven DEDEC still includes baking on stone slabs, but on a smaller footprint and with a higher baking capacity. The smallest DEDEC is 900mm and has the option of a double compact baking chamber with a pizza function. It also has the new standardised D-Control and can therefore be connected with the networking software D-Connect.
Other solutions being shown at iba include a mobile and compact blast chilling station which utilises one efficient fan and therefore reduces energy consumption. The fan system cools dough pieces in a pile of stacking boards to the desired core temperature. The station is equipped with a core temperature sensor and external operating unit.
Finally, DEBAG’s smallest in-store baking oven GALA 35 has been equipped with several new features and also comes with the new D-Control system. Thanks to a three-pane insulating glass in the door, the oven is better insulated and consumes up to 8% less energy.
The new optimised hood design ensures a lower output of visible wet steam in all programs and contributes to better hygiene. DEBAG is the exclusive technology partner of the Central Association of the German Bakery Trade.
“We are very pleased and it is a great sign of confidence that the accomplished baking professionals of the Central Association of the German Baking Trade want to bake with our DEBAG technology at iba and that we are allowed to equip their stand as their exclusive baking technology partner this year,” commented Oliver Theiß, Managing Director of DEBAG.
The four baking rooms for competition, the show baking room and the iba Forum will be equipped with deck and in-store baking ovens and the corresponding proofing and refrigeration technology.
