The Escher M100 is our best-selling mixer, and for good reason! This fixed bowl spiral dough mixer is designed specifically to improve your production quality and time parameters. The Premium Line was created for intensive use with stiffer doughs whilst featuring the Premium drive system and dual belt resulting in more power being delivered to the spiral tool. The Escher M100 is the most robust spiral mixer on the market, producing the highest quality dough with minimal heat generation, making it the ideal mixer for croissant dough and sourdough where dough temperature is critical. The M Premium Series has a capacity range from 40kg to 240kg. There are two speeds available for use, automatic timers and a two-way bowl rotation allowing you to reverse the bowl at first speed.

The Escher MD & MDW are part of Escher’s industrial mixer range and are designed to produce all types of dough in large quantities. The range of spiral mixers has a bottom discharge system, where the dough is unloaded onto a conveyor belt or into a moveable bowl. This compact system is available in models with a capacity of 160kg – 500kg and features two or more series of mixers that feed the dough directly into the production lines, while an optional extension offers a system for letting the dough rest. The design of the machine pays close attention to various aspects of hygiene maintenance, whilst optimising the function of the machine. For example, the closing cap on the cleaning bowl. The bowl transmission guarantees constant RPM to improve the quality of the dough. This transmission is designed to last longer and requires less maintenance compared to the classic clutch wheel transmissions used in this sector.
