Leading the Digital Wave: AMF UX and Bakery Intelligence for Modern Bakeries

The baking industry is facing a transformative era where digital integration is key to addressing current challenges like labor shortages and the increasing need for sustainable practices. AMF Bakery Systems is at the forefront of this digital wave, offering innovative solutions like AMF UX and Bakery Intelligence to modernize and enhance bakery operations.

Tackling Bakery Challenges: The Need for a Unified Interface

Bakery operators are often hampered by inconsistent Human-Machine Interfaces (HMI), high staff turnover, reduced productivity, and limited employee empowerment. AMF UX emerges as a solution to these challenges, providing a globally standard HMI operator interface across all AMF bakery equipment brands, ensuring a streamlined, intuitive user experience. This standardization leads to fewer errors, less downtime, easier maintenance, and simplified training, making it a platform-agnostic solution​​​​​​.

AMF UX: Bridging the Interface Gap

AMF UX revolutionizes bakery operations with its user-friendly interface, offering preventive maintenance recommendations, enhanced system monitoring, and optimized process control. This not only simplifies the user experience but also significantly improves operational efficiency and reduces the need for specialized training. AMF UX will soon become a standard on all new AMF equipment across our family of brands.

AMF Bakery Intelligence: A Leap Towards Automated, Data-Driven Baking

AMF’s Bakery Intelligence is a catalyst for digital transformation in the baking industry.

From ingredient mixing all the way to applying the exact amount of product toppings, AMF’s pizza and flatbread solutions are sure to increase efficiency and product consistency for pizza and flatbread makers.

Cakes and Pies: Like pizza and flatbreads, cake and pie production requires accuracy across many steps, from ingredient scaling to mixing to depositing and decorating, all of which AMF’s data-driven equipment helps to optimize for the highest-quality outputs with reduced ingredient and energy waste.

Pastries and Croissants: Although pastry and croissant production once required delicate, hand-pressed methods, modern bakeries can achieve similar quality at scale with digital solutions from AMF that help you control the entire baking process with innovative, customizable equipment.

Sustainable Baking: The Intersection of Digital Transformation and Environmental Responsibility

Digital transformation through Bakery Intelligence aligns closely with sustainability objectives in the baking industry. By leveraging these digital tools, bakeries can significantly reduce their environmental footprint while maintaining high production standards​​ and higher production standards​​.

Promoting Sustainable Baking Through Waste Reduction and Energy Conservation

AMF actively promotes sustainability in baking through identifying, developing, and implementing solutions to reduce ingredient waste and energy consumption. AMF’s flour reclaim technology saves bakeries money and reduces waste by recycling flour that is still usable in the baking process. Likewise, the Smart Applicator contributes to reduced waste as it uses precision technology to only apply the exact amount of toppings needed on a specific product. In terms of reducing energy usage, AMF invests in solutions that conserve energy to optimize baking processes and contribute to global sustainability efforts. AMF’s Sustainable Oven Service, for example, ensures that bakery ovens are operating at peak efficiency.
