Oven Loading and Unloading Systems

Increase your system’s productivity, reduce waste and lessen the need for manual labor with our automatic oven loading and unloading systems.

We’ve designed our oven loaders and unloaders to handle products of just about any size and shape, including hearth products, pans, and bake-able cardboard, aluminum tins and plastic trays.

All of these systems feature:

  • Heavy-duty stainless steel construction to meet demanding sanitary standards and ensure years of trouble-free operation
  • Advanced PLC control systems, reliable sensors and variable speed drives to synchronize loading and unloading with upstream and downstream equipment

Proofing, Retarding and Cooling Systems

Our step-style proofing, retarding and cooling systems are compact, have few moving parts and are simple to operate and maintain. The units are custom-designed for maximum efficiency and built to last.

All of these systems feature:

  • A walk-in environmental enclosure, which optimizes product consistency by keeping fermentation or cooling conditions constant
  • An advanced heat and humidity or cooling system with stainless steel air-distribution ductwork to balance atmospheric loads based on diverse environmental factors and requirements


Our step-style accumulators are compact, have few moving parts, and are easy to operate and maintain. Designed to automatically store pans and/or boards for a set period of time when a line stoppage occurs, they reduce the need for manual labor and make the production process more efficient.

Conveying Systems

Our conveying systems handle products gently, minimize transfers and guard against product jamming. All are constructed from stainless steel and are easy to clean and maintain. Our state-of-the-art PLC control systems give you precise control of production rates, which you can vary by product and pan type. Count on reliable conveying of all your products, every day.
