Auto-Bake is a global designer and supplier of fully automated commercial baking ovens and systems.
Internationally renowned for its innovative Serpentine technology, Auto-Bake’s compact, cost-efficient, continuous baking solutions are custom-configured for a diverse range of baking applications. The company has been in the business of baking since the 1950s, when founder Kevin Hicks built his first bakery in Melbourne, Australia.
Since then, this successful business has evolved into a truly international enterprise, with successful installations on every continent and a dynamic service and support presence in the USA, Europe and Asia. Because Auto-Bake had its beginning in industrial baking, it understands first-hand the unique requirements of bakeries and bakers, and the pressures of the marketplace in which they operate.
Auto-Bake’s experience in space-saving automatic cookie machinery led to the conception and development of the ultra-compact Serpentine oven—where products in the baking zone are conveyed horizontally through an ingenious ‘S’ path over multiple levels.
This patented technology provides significant advantages over conventional tunnel and band ovens, including an oven footprint of approximately one-tenth the size, consistent product quality, reduced labor costs, and increased productivity.
The Auto-Bake Serpentine oven is also ultra-flexible, being suitable for the widest range of baked goods, savoury and sweet. An equally vital ingredient in Auto-Bake’s success has been its comprehensive scope of supply.
While its own product range encompasses ‘upstream’ and ‘downstream’ equipment to complement its core oven technology, the company also has proven partnerships with ancillary equipment suppliers.
This modular approach enables Auto-Bake to provide individual equipment elements as needed, or fully customized turnkey baking system solutions using the best available components.
