Capway Systems, a leading supplier of fully automated and integrated bakery systems, is known for providing tailor-made solutions for all types of automated bakery systems. A Capway bread production line is made up of various components such as proofers, robot systems, depanners, conveyors, bread coolers and cleaning equipment. All these components are also available for the up-grading and automation of already existing lines. Capway also offers dedicated bread production solutions in control programs and software for complete line management systems.
Capway's daughter Capway Pan supplies non-coated and Teflon-coated bread pans, trays and baking forms. Capway Pan products are made to customer specification and are completely compatible with robot systems integrated into production lines. Capway Pan products of course can also be used on non-Capway production lines.
Bakery Production Lines
Capway Systems is a solution provider for bakeries. This is illustrated by the plant concepts that are at the heart of each lay-out. Capway plant concepts are used for so-called 'mono product lines' that are focussed and optimised for the production of one type of bread. Capway has the ability to realise production lines that can produce different types of breads on one and the same line: the 'CapFlex' concept.
Cap-Flex lines are characterised by the ability to handle a wide range of bread types with the accompanying different types of baking forms and / or baking trays. Furthermore, changing from one type of bread to another takes only the bare minimum in change-over time.
Bakery Robot Systems
Capway Systems pioneered the application of robots in bakeries in 1987. Since then the Capway RoboCap has become the benchmark for robots in bread production lines. The RoboCap is a portal mounted robot especially designed for handling, buffering and storing of a wide range of baking forms, baking trays and lids.
After pioneering portal mounted robots, Capway has expanded its expertise in robotic systems into so-called RoboGrip "one-armed" robots. These versatile robots are used for the lidding and de-lidding of baking forms as well as the cutting of dough, needle depanning and crate filling.
