We at BTE are very proud to introduce you to our most innovative product line for the production of Health and Snack Bars - FORMABAR™. If you're in the business of making any kind of snack or health bars, you're going to want to take a very close look at the all new BTE exclusive FORMABAR™ system. Our registered and trademarked FORMABAR™ product is a complete bar making line that contains every component you'll need in order to make the highest quality bars as efficiently, quickly, and cost-effectively as possible. Every component in this system has been developed from the ground up for long-lasting quality and efficiency. FORMABAR™ not only produces snack and health bars, but it's a versatile and complete bar production line that's capable of producing cereal, nutritional, protein, fruit & nut bars, and just about any type of bars that are being currently being sold in markets around the world today.
FORMABAR™ is made up of 7 vital components:
Pro-Former™: The Pro-Former™ heads the line by creating a workable slab of product. (The 3-roll option adds improved weight consistency.) The unique design allows this component to reduce loss and improve the yield of the final product. (Each Pro-Former™ is delivered with custom milled grooves depending on client’s product requirements.) Increased efficiency in speed and energy savings over earlier methods of forming have been achieved while at the same time reducing re-works. The Pro-Former™ also reduces need for additional ancillary equipment, such as water chillers, when handling extremely sticky or tacky product.
Pro-Press®: The Pro-Press™ sizes the product slab. It has been specially designed to improve line speed and product efficiency with high-speed continuous slab production. This press offers a 2 or 3-Roller Pro-Press™ attachment. There is also an optional driven Backer Roll.
Pro-Slit®: The Pro-Slit™ system separates the product slab into strips. It incorporates a unique, self-lubricating, slitting system as an option. The built in self-lubricating feature has been designed to extend the life of the cutting blades by extending the life of the blades. A better looking final product is produced, product loss is minimized, and maintenance and blade replacement costs are reduced.
The Pro-Slit™ system, the Pro-Span™ and Pro-Sonic™ all offer the following features and options:
- Optimized Spacing for Slitting, Spreading, and Cutting to feed automation systems for different packaging configurations.
- Optional Individual or Expanding Spreader Belt
- Optional Ultrasonic Guillotine Attachments
Pro-Span™: The Pro-Span™ spaces product appropriately for the rest of the automation process.
Pro-Sonic™: The Pro-Sonic™ cuts strips that have come out of the The Pro-Slit™ system into the final bar shapes. This step prepares the product for enrobing and/or packaging.
Pro-Robe™: Our Pro-Robe™ enrobes or coats the formed, pressed, and cut bars with the final coatings, such as chocolate, or white confectionery coatings for snack bars; or yogurt, carob, fruit flavors, or other healthy coatings for protein bars and health bars.
Turba-Flo™: The Turba-Flo™ sets the coating around bars by cooling the bars to the necessary temperature as quickly as possible. This step also stops decorative swirls and stripes from melting or getting smeared in subsequent steps such as packaging.

Cracker & Biscuit Equipment
Cookies, crackers and biscuits are mainstays of the baking industry. They are among the first cooked foods ever made by man, and not only continue to be a favorite until the present time, but will be around for centuries to come. With the cookie industry being an $8 Billion category, it seems cookies have been rising in popularity since the beginning of time. From breakfast cookies and biscuits to cream filled berry topped swirled creations and beyond, these long time favorites are not only selling at a great pace, but are evolving and creating new opportunities for commercial producers everywhere.
With the “better-for-you” shift in foods that is being driven by the millennials, come new opportunities for cookie, cracker, and biscuit manufacturers across the US and around the world. As delicious as they can be, cookies are no longer simply an indulgence. The inclusion of new and exotic seeds, fruits, nuts, or extracts from nontraditional plants and crops, have new and existing manufacturers of cookies, crackers, and biscuits creating unique and exciting products that consumers are enthusiastic to try.
According to Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery “If you can provide the market with a clean-label product with health benefits and a great taste, you’re likely to pique the interest of today’s consumer.”

Even online sales of candy show astounding figures, with 30% of shoppers having purchased candy online.
The largest channel for confectionery is grocery at 22 percent of total confectionery sales, followed by mass merchandise outlets (21%), convenience stores (16%), club stores (13%), drug stores (9%), confectionery stores (5%) and value/dollar stores (4%). - Data excerpted from NCA’s 2014 Annual Confectionery Industry review.

Commercial Snack &
Health Bar Equipment
Snack Bars & Health Bars are perhaps some of the fastest growing segments in the packaged food and snacks categories - and for good reason. They can be a tasty and quick snack, or healthy and nutritious, so active people on the go can simply grab one whenever they feel the urge or the need. Although Snack Bars are usually all about delicious flavors, good prices, and convenience for a younger demographic, Health Bars are typically made from nutrition packed foods such as nuts, raisins, and whole-grains. Health Bars pack a lot of vitamins and minerals into a small and often low calorie delicious product. They usually cost a little more, but they are worth it because of the types of ingredients they use.
Several varieties of Health Bars are made for specific market segments, such as Protein Bars for athletes and bodybuilders; energy bars for runners and bikers; and meal replacement bars for dieters and hikers. These items are usually sold at premium prices and carry higher mark-ups as well.
Production of these bars take highly specialized equipment - often different depending on the specific type of bar intended to produce - but here at Bakery Technology Enterprises, LLC we have plenty of experience designing and creating just what is needed to produce excellent products at good prices, while maximizing profits for manufacturers.
If you're contemplating the purchase of Commercial Snack or Health Bars Equipment you'll find plenty of information on our site. If you need answers now, call us or contact us from one of the contact pages on this site now.

Food Processing Equipment for Snack Bars & Health Bars
If you are already producing, or you want to produce bars for sale, you'll want to use the proper types of food processing equipment across your line. One important element in quality bar production is proper forming equipment. It's a common misconception in the industry that some types of non-standard equipment, such as the Vemag (made to produce meat patties), will be "good enough" for producing quality bars. Sadly, this is not the case. Using a Vemag will cause your product to be hard and over compacted. If you want to secure large contracts with the retail grocery chains, etc. the quality of your bars will have to be much better than what can be produced with a system like that. It's best to start with a proper customized slabbing system that gives a significantly more tender final product.
Industrial Equipment for Snack Bar & Health Bar Production
Snack bars and health bars are some of the hottest products in our industry right now. Consumers love these products, and it seems they can't get enough of them. And why not? They are convenient for people on the go, and they taste great. We're so convinced that this is the time to get into snack and health bar production that we've not only made it a specialty of ours, but we've come out with our own line of registered and trademarked processes and equipment to support this evergreen and popular consumer trend.

Miscellaneous Equipment for
Commercial Bakeries &
Food Production Facilities
Commercial Bakery Equipment Manufacturer
Commercial bakeries have special needs when it comes to equipment and machinery purchasing. As a manufacturer of large equipment and ovens for industrial bakeries it’s our business to understand your business.
Industrial sized equipment for large production facilities -- such as the equipment we manufacture -- will typically be made to order to suit your specific production needs. There are several things you should keep in mind when choosing a company to manufacture your equipment:
Equipment with adequate strength and durability are a must from a safety and return on investment standpoint. Seems need to be up to the latest standards. Not only for the looks of the equipment, but for safety from harboring pathogens. There are legal requirements that must be considered in order to comply with OSHA, USDA, FSIS, FDA, CDC, and local agencies that are responsible for overseeing and maintaining the public health. Sometimes these things are overlooked or not understood by foreign manufacturers.
As a U.S. commercial bakery equipment manufacturer we understand your challenges and needs. Here at Bakery Technology Enterprises, LLC we make sure to keep abreast of current laws and practices that may affect our customers, their retailers, and the people who purchase the final consumable products.
There may be times when you need a piece of equipment that is made to work with other machines on your line. There are some pieces that are perhaps a little less common, or that are used in conjunction with the main workhorses on your line. Miscellaneous industrial bakery equipment can be items such as dough dividers, certain types of mixers (perhaps where smaller quantities are required), safety guards, etc. We can usually supply you with most of the miscellaneous bakery equipment you’re going to need.
If your bakery or facility has a special related need for a machine or piece of equipment that isn’t regularly produced, don’t worry. The BTE engineering and production teams can usually produce or manufacture just about anything you’ll need right here in our U.S. facility.
Food Production Equipment Design and Manufacture
When it comes to the production of candy, chocolates, confections, snack bars, health bars, protein bars and similar products, some types of equipment are somewhat standard and necessary to most production lines. It’s when you need something unique to your product, or something that’s hard to find, that you’ll be happy to have BTE on your side. BTE specializes in creating and manufacturing special and hard to find pieces of equipment that stump other equipment manufacturers. We pride ourselves on our ability to produce new and innovative equipment for our customers.
Maybe you need a piece of special equipment that lays a decorative topping or sprinkles in a certain way, or one that puffs rice to a unique specification. In a world where being unique and standing out from the crowed is the best way to make a name for your company, you need an equipment manufacturer that doesn’t know the meaning of the words “it can’t be done.” At BTE, it can be done, and we can do it.
Shuttle Feeding Systems
A shuttle feeding system is the machine that places or distributes loaves or pieces of dough across the forming system. The shuttle feeding system automatically places or dumps dough at a specified rate into each hopper at the proper amount. This ensures uniform products with more accurate weight and quality control. Go here to learn about our other commercial bakery equipment and food production lines.
Hard to Find Machines & Equipment
for Food Production Facilities
If you’re looking for that hard to find Food Production Machine, or a difficult to source piece of equipment for your commercial bakery, contact us here at BTE. If we don’t have it, or if we can’t tell you were to get it, odds are we’ve made something similar before. If we haven’t, made or come across similar equipment in the past, we love a good challenge. Let’s discuss your needs. Some of our best industry-changing innovations have come about through helping our customers solve some sort of manufacturing challenge or production problem.
If you’re responsible in your company for buying equipment for food production, baked goods, candies, chocolates, confections, snack bars, health bars, protein bars, or similar equipment, and you’re looking for an equipment manufacturer in the United States that can design and produce uncommon or hard to find equipment for your production line, the folks at BTE welcome your inquiry. Call us or contact us from our contact page or one of our contact forms that can be found throughout our site, and let’s work together to take your business to the next level of quality and profits.

Industrial Bakery Cooling Systems
Industrial Cooling Systems, or Cooling Tunnels, are used in many types of industrial baking and food processing production lines. Cooling systems such as these are usually only installed and utilized when it’s necessary to quickly reduce the temperature of hot or warm products before the next step on a production line. For instance: If your production line makes cookies or biscuits with decorative lines of fudge rippling across the top of the cookies, you will need to quickly cool the cookies after they come out of the oven. By cooling the cookies or biscuits at that stage, you’ll be able to apply a chocolate fudge ripple beautifully and then cool the coating.
A quality cooling system or tunnel will allow a baked goods producer to have proper temperature control throughout the tunnel in order to be able to produce the best results for a given product. Not only that, but the temperature often needs to be very consistent across the entire tunnel. Some cooling tunnels are designed to produce more cooling at the bottom – for chocolates and confections – and some are designed to cool evenly throughout the entire tunnel.
Commercial Baked Goods Cooling Tunnel Manufacturer
As a commercial Baked Goods Cooling Tunnel Manufacturer for many large US baked goods producers, BTE is in tune with all of the current trends and methods for cooling baked goods, confections, and other food products on an industrial or commercial production line. Our systems are fine-tuned and geared to high capacity food production at minimal cost to food producers and industrial bakeries.
Just take a look at the beautiful smooth finishes and welding seams of a cooling system or any other piece of equipment that we manufacture at BTE, and you will understand the quality standards we have set for ourselves. Our high standards are what we deliver to every client -- both large and small.

Industrial Tunnel Oven Types

Our Industrial Tunnel Oven Features:
The Ovens are shipped fully assembled in modules that will fit trucking.
More Efficient Heating
• The recirculation fan increases airflow thereby saving loss of heat energy which saves on gas consumption.
• Directional dampers improve the efficiency of the air distribution and makes the
oven easier to operate and improves control for a more consistent bake.
• Heat loss is reduced as well by using high-density insulation, high temperature rock wool batting in place of loose fill. The outer shell affords fewer opportunities for heat to escape and offers an easy to clean surface for easier maintenance. Both the exhaust fan and burner gas train are prewired. The re-circulating fan has been designed so replacement is inexpensive.
The oven is designed for faster, simpler installation. Modular in design, the BTE Classic model is installed in half the time it took for older models.
BAKING BAND CONVEYOR
The product is conveyed through the Oven Body on a 48” wide solid band, at controlled speeds of up to 50 FPM (Feet Per Minute). The band is driven & travels by drum ends on the Drive & Take-up. The band is driven by a variable frequency drive motor.
The recirculation blower returns the air and is controlled by a dampening system on the oven to allow change in airflow for different products. One (1) exhaust fan per zone is supplied to balance the system and to remove moisture-laden air as needed. This fan exhausts to the exterior
The fans are designed for high temperature continuous operation. Each have easy to service fixed speed, guarded belt.
Each Oven Zone is furnished with a LoNox packaged oven burner assembly. Each assembly includes all parts and safety devices necessary for control and safety supervision. The 40 to 1 firing turndown ratio provides wide process flexibility. Burner assemblies are pre-piped and pre-wired in easy to install modules. Each burner has a locally, mounted NEMA 4 junction box, combination blower air-inlet filter, air and gas mixing system, pilot flame system, spark ignition, flame detector and discharge sleeve. Each burner chamber has safety blow off panels. The gas train & safeties meet or exceed NFPA 86.
A. Temperature Controls
All zones of the oven are individually controlled for a temperature range of 100°F to 650 °F. Each is digitally operated, which receives a signal from a thermocouple mounted in the supply air stream. This digitally controls the fuel supply valve to maintain the design set point temperature.
B. Control Panel
One Control Panel is provided for the system. The Panel is powder coated mild steel. The components are Allen Bradley. The unit is pre-wired and free standing, complete with burner ignition and flame safety monitoring systems with diagnostic lights. The Panel is completely factory wired internally and tested prior to shipment, minimizing technical problems in the field.
BTE Pancake Griddle:
BTE Two Pass Pancake griddle oven is a DFG based two pass solid band griddle with capabilities of up to 50,000 pancakes per hour. The BTE pancake griddle has the unique ability to transfer the pancake after the bottom is baked to an upper shorted DFG griddle to finish the top back. This is done through a PLC controlled lift wrap conveyor that is perfectly timed to not slide or change the pancake or even French crape profile.

Forming is typically done after the mixing of the main ingredients and before baking. The pieces of equipment that are responsible for giving shape to the product before baking are known as forming equipment. Forming equipment is often what adds the the decorative touches around the outer edges of a cookie or biscuit, but it can also be the piece of equipment that places just enough raw product on a belt for the creation of the final product.

Commercial Extruders and Depositors
Commercial extruders and depositors are types of forming machines that are used on baked goods or industrial food production lines to measure out and place the proper amount of batter, dough, or mixed raw product onto a belt, or into pans or cups, before moving them into an oven or onto the next step in the process of producing consumable products.
A depositor may also measure and/or work in conjunction with some type of cutting machine for producing bread, cookies, biscuits, bars, or similar food items. On the other hand, an extruder will typically squeeze out the proper amount of raw batter or other uncooked product onto its position in the production line, and can be used to create decorative swirls, ridges, or other unique patterns on the surface of cookies, biscuits, and similar products that are being made. We supply all solutions depending on your needs.
The type of product you wish to produce will determine the type of forming machine, extruder, or depositor you will need to use on your production line.
