Holistic Approach to Plan Your Depanning Process
Depanning is a crucial step in the bakery industry, involving the delicate removal of baked products from their pans. The process, while seemingly simple, requires a thoughtful approach to ensure the integrity of the final product, optimize workflow, and maintain easy washdown standards.
A key component of this process is the equipment you use. Rexfab’s Inline Vacuum Depanner (IVD) is a state-of-the-art solution designed to automate depanning, seamlessly integrating into your bakery’s complete pan handling operations1.
The IVD comes in three models based on the width of the vacuum chamber: 24, 36, and 42 inches. This variety ensures the IVD can accommodate different bakery sizes and production volumes.
Besides, the IVD is design to fit into most of the existing line, replacing less efficient units.
