Auto-Bake automated industrial baking ovens and systems

Auto-Bake is a global designer and supplier of fully automated industrial baking ovens and systems. Internationally renowned for its innovative Serpentine technology, Auto-Bake’s compact, cost-efficient, continuous baking solutions are custom-configured for a diverse range of baking applications. Beyond cakes and pastry, Auto-Bake’s technology also excels in ready-made meals, artisan/specialty breads, and pet food.

Auto-Bake provides total customization to match all your requirements. Serpentine’s modularity, along with its small footprint, enables a fit for any factory envelope and also allows for fast installation. With Auto-Bake’s extensive product library, global knowledge, and test facilities, Auto-Bake is your partner in pursuit of perfection.

The heart of Auto-Bake's technology is the ultra-compact Serpentine oven, where trays are conveyed across multiple horizontal levels in a distinctive S-shape, achieving a footprint one-tenth the size of tunnel ovens. This space saving Serpentine technology has also been incorporated within the proofing and cooling modules, resulting in one of the most compact baking systems available today. Enormous advantages are provided over conventional technologies.

Auto-Bake offers ovens (infeed and outfeed) coolers, proofers, robotic de-panners and washers.

Serpentine Ovens

The ultra-compact Serpentine design is based on a transport technology where pans are conveyed horizontally through the oven via an ingenious vertical ‘S’ configuration. This means the products travel through multiple precision-controlled thermal zones, providing superior baking control and consistency.

Typically one-tenth the footprint of an equivalent tunnel oven, Auto-Bake Serpentine ovens offer a crucial advantage in environments where production floor space is at a premium.

Serpentine ovens and systems offer superior flexibility, allowing product changes by simply changing pans, and ancillary tooling. Options include Auto-Bake’s standard ‘contained pan’ model, or the innovative ‘free pan’ transport interface that allows bakers to utilize baking pans that are independent of the oven or system.

Serpentine Ovens are the heart of the Auto-Bake Line.

Custom built reduced footprint in modular design for future expansion.

Consistent energy efficiency bake.
