Autofeed Weighing & Mixing System

The Autofeed is a fully automatic high-accuracy system to weigh and mix up to eight dry and liquid confectionery ingredients and feed any cooker in Baker Perkins’ range.

Efficiency and accuracy

A standard accuracy of 0.1% in a typical 180kg batch eliminates errors associated with volumetric systems. Up to eight ingredients are weighed and mixed in batches, with the reservoir tank providing a continuous feed to the cooker.


Up to 20 different recipes can be pre-programmed and stored, maximizing flexibility and minimizing operator involvement and error.

Tight control

Full batch reporting ensures tight cost control so the use of every ingredient can be accurately calculated.

This is part of the medicated gummy machine and gummy manufacturing machine production lines.
