Meaningful dough examinations for achieving best baking results
On the basis of the recorded extensogram, reliable information on rheological dough properties – and therefore later baking results – can be determined. Recognize and determine the effects of flour additives, such as for example enzymes or ascorbic acid, and flexibly adapt the short methods to your own particular application.
The dough previously created in the Farinograph is rounded and stretched out in the Extensograph. After defined settling times and temperatures have been reached in the cooking chambers provided for the purpose, the dough is stretched until it tears. The dough’s resistance is automatically measured and recorded. This test procedure is based on processes that are usual in bread and bread roll manufacture.

Brabender devices with this function have a built-in computer and a touch display. This allows our customers to directly and easily start operating our devices without any IT experience. Combined with other Brabender technologies such as EmbeddedHC, this results in a very compact device setup.
Brabender’s cross-device software solution provides a consistent user experience between all Brabender units. The MetaBridge comes with various data evaluation functionality, preimplemented standards and customizable measurement methods in order to meet application specific requirements. Regular updates improve and expand your device and let you automatically benefit from the latest trends and developments.
The MetaBridge Connect technology provides various data exchange interfaces and flexible connectivity features. Data sharing between all Brabender MetaBridge devices in one network allows for smart workflows and process efficiency. Moreover, the integrated web-based software interface (WebAPI) connects and automatically exchanges data with natively connected database systems and / or 3rd party laboratory information and management systems (LIMS) or ERP solutions.
MetaBridge Correlation is an optional software package for performing correlation studies across multiple data sets. It allows for comparison of multiple measurements and parameters in a tabular and in an interactive graphical view. Particularly for quality control purposes, the compliance with a pre-defined tolerance is automatically evaluated and highlighted.
The EvaluationEditor enables the creation of customer-specific evaluations. You are able to define logical, mathematical operations based on the measured data. These are calculated automatically and displayed after the completion of a measurement. This allows a qualitative comparison of the measured data based on a few significant points
The MetaBrigde Database represents a local data center in the customer network and a basic laboratory information and management systems (LIMS) for Brabender devices. Connected Brabender devices transfer measurement results automatically into the central MetaBridge database. Besides of the backup functionality, statistical analysis and crossdevice correlations between multiple data sets can be performed.
labfolder allows you to store, manage and search your measurement data in one central location, independent of the instrument. Brabender MetaBridge instruments have an automated built-in connection to labfolder. It’s never been easier to get started with lab digitization.
