Mixers & Processing Equipment
Shaffer offers the most extensive and innovative line of horizontal mixers in the baking industry. Our staff pushed the envelope with our proprietary open frame mixer design and has elevated bowl cooling performance standards. We develop technology that not only makes the mixing process more consistent, but also minimizes downtime through maintenance-free and enhanced sanitation designs. This advanced yet simple theme carries over to our line of bread moulders, with features like independently driven sheeting rollers and a hinged and counterbalanced pressure board.
