Bunting Magnetics Co. has formally introduced an innovative product concept for the baking industry. The newly patented devices represent a revolutionary advancement in bread pan magnet technology, significantly increasing the life of magnets on proofing and oven lines, and greatly reducing magnet replacement costs in baking applications. A patented magnetic circuit prevents spillage on racks, and the new Bunting bread pan magnets can be placed on and removed from racks without the need for bolts. The magnets ‘float’ on racks, and maintain contact even with warped pans.
Discussing the revolutionary new product, Don Suderman, Bunting Product Manager for Material Handling and one of the inventors, said, “Customer interest at the recent IBIE show exceeded all expectations; this new bread pan magnet represents a major improvement in baking technology. The new Bunting bread pan magnet is easy to use and maintain in busy baking plants. Tool-free installation and quick maintenance are just two features of the new concept. The unique and patented Bunting design features a sealed structure, locking out moisture which could degrade the magnet. Oxidation is eliminated, extending magnet life and lowering costs.”
