Burford Corp. rolled out two new systems at the recent International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE) to help small- to mid-level wholesale bakeries automate their operations.

The Burford Entry Level (EL) Topper includes the company’s patented rotary dispense system, which applies a wide variety of toppings and provides labor savings. The stainless steel and aluminum system features a quick change template and a hopper agitator to prevent bridging of toppings.

Additionally, the company introduced its Entry Level Twist Tyer system that may be used with manual or semi-automated bag loaders to improve the efficiency of the bakery packaging process.

The new series of equipment allows Burford to enter new markets, says Clay Miller, sales engineer.

“We are excited to introduce the new EL series that takes us back to the basics,” he says. “Designed specifically with the small to mid-level bakery in mind, the Entry Level Twist Tyer System and the Entry Level Topper provide practical solutions with proven results.”
