ZEDEX® – High-performance plastic solutions

Dough mixer

The plain bearing bushes of ZX-100K are used for the rotating device of the dough bowl in dough mixers.

Thanks to its excellent sliding properties, a smoother running and stable operation of the entire assembly is ensured. Additionally, thanks to its lower wear values, the lifespan, in comparison to the previously used plastic, was significantly increased.

Industrial bakeries

In industrial bakeries, dough rolls made of ZX-530 with different diameters are used. The shell made of ZX-530 is mounted on a stainless steel shaft. ZX-530 is used due to its high resistance to leaven and aggressive cleaning agents.

Components made of ZX-100K for dosing and making bread dough


ZX-100K is used as an outer roller and piston in a dough dividing and knitting machine. The dough is pressed into the drum opening through a funnel. The piston pushes the dough through the openings of the rotating drum in which the dough is preformed. The remaining dough is then removed by the mean of a scraper. ZX-100K is used because of its non-stick effect and approval for applications with direct food contact.
