Dough And Bakery Fixtures

Dough and bakery fixturesFTC offers a range of fixtures which are specifically designed to test the raw ingredients for the bakery industry.

These accessories are made to the specifications required by accepted industry tests, or standards adopted by bakery bodies and organisations, such as AACC International.

Dough’s stickiness, extensibility and firmness are particularly significant in processing optimisation and FTC has fixtures to evaluate these texture attributes through adhesive force and tension tests, plus controlled (local) compression methods.

Texture analysis glossary

Trusted by customers across the world

As a seasonal vegetable processor, understanding crop maturity and the accuracy of this measurement is key to staying ahead of crop and knowing when to make the move from value to premium product as harvest time constraints permit.

The TU units provided by FTC give us the accuracy to work to much tighter tolerances, replacing older less accurate analogue equipment which in turn can affect final product grading and profitability.

The units are well designed, very low maintenance and are backed up with a strong support service which will allow them to provide many years of accurate, reliable service.

We are looking forward to future innovations from FTC.

I have been working with FTC for the past 3 years, we bought in that lapse of time 2 texture analyzers with different probes fixtures for all kind of applications at our Monterrey Plant. We have always been able to count on the technical support of FTC who kindly answers our requests in a prompt manner and with the best disposition.

As we continue developing our process to achieve better results at our company, we will for sure rely on FTC for technical support and equipment upgrades that will deliver us the best possible results.
