Flying COLUMBUS deck oven for Bäckerei Schmidt | Wachtel GmbH

In Bad Langensalza our COLUMBUS deck oven was delivered by "airmail"

In the tranquil Bad Langensalza in Thuringia our customer, the Schmidt Bakery, received a new COLUMBUS multi-deck oven . The delivery, however, was unusually spectacular.  The oven could only be delivered through a backyard access, which turned out to be too small for the oven measuring almost 3 x 2 meters. Hence we had to resort to unusual means: A crane should carry the oven through the air over the 12-meter-high row of houses - sort of an "air mail" delivery.

 

 

Thomas Schmidt, master baker and owner of the bakery, praised the quality of the WACHTEL ovens. His previous one, after all, baked for 20 years at least in his bakery. Nevertheless, it was time for a new generation of ovens: "The reason for the new acquisition is that this oven bakes more modern and much more efficient. The baking results are more even and I can now bake different baking goods at the same time, thanks to the option to heat the baking chambers separately. In addition, I now save electricity, since the modern oven generation of WACHTEL bring along different energy saving features."

 

The Highlight:

COLUMBUS is delivered by crane to the bakery

Almost 40 meters high and 11 meters wide, the crane had to extend its boom. It took a hefty 45.5 tonnes counterweight to hold the heavy oven.

That´s new:
