How just one compact scale Puro® can support the many processes in a bakery
The Lyckans Bakery produces baked goods using traditional methods. The individual ingredients are weighed according to the recipe, then worked in a kneading machine before being portioned out, formed and refined by hand. The bakery's selection of products includes various types of bread and cakes, as well as muesli, crispbread, pastries and spreads. These products are available for customers to buy from its shop and café.
The bakery has a wide range of products on offer with its uses for scales being similarly broad. From simply weighing out ingredients to checking the weights of pieces of dough and pre-packaged products, the scales are applied in many different uses: not only in the bakery, but also in the shop or café kitchen. As a flexible solution to meet all its weighing needs, including weighing out expensive ingredients like saffron, the Lyckans Bakery opted for a compact scale Puro® SmallFlat with the "Advanced" application package, a 30,000 d resolution and 3 kg capacity from Minebea Intec. Based on its 150 years of expertise, this manufacturer of industrial scales and inspection solutions offers Puro®, a practical and modern industrial scale series for various applications in manual weighing.
"In daily use, our Puro has proven itself to be a robust, modern and extremely precise compact scale. It’s easy to use - and we use it almost everywhere!”"

The Puro® SmallFlat guarantees precise weighing results for avariety of applications in the stone oven bakery. For weighing individual ingredients in cups and bowls every day, the prominent tare key proves to be extremely useful. The HMI also has impressive features, such as the unit on the display, which appears once the weight value is stable.
Switching between individual applications, such as "Counting","Weighing in Percent" and "Check Weighing" is simple. Minebea Intec offers various practical tutorials on YouTube on how it works. One application that is regularly used in the bakery is the "Check Weighing" option for pieces of dough. This application offers a significant benefit: a traffic light function (red, amber, green). Once the weight is within the tolerance range, set in advance, agreen LED light shows, which makes checking weights faster and helps to avoid wasting materials.
Thanks to its wireless operation, long battery operationtime and practical recessed grips on the underside of the scale, the Puro® SmallFlat is particularly flexible. This means its can be used for days at a time and simply moved from one weighing station to the next. Any unevenness in work surface is quickly balanced out thanks to the large, adjustable feet.
