SPI 53 & 63 fixed bowl vertical mixers are ideal for the production of small volumes of dough (between 1.6 and 40 kg of dough). Thanks to a turn-and-a-half spiral, the penetration of the dough is improved and kneading optimized. These kneaders are recommended to produce traditional bread, special red and Viennese pastry.

The SPI 63 Digy version of the mixer is equipped with an automatic lifting head, unique on the market, facilitating the emptying and cleaning of the bowl. The Digy touch control panel is intuitive, allowing quick and easy setting of recipes.

The SPI 63 Digy is now available in Snacking version, to expand the range of recipes to include pastries. The SPI 63 RM Snacking is delivered with a paddle and a scraper. The quick-release system allows the 3 tools to be exchanged easily (whip and spiral in option). The SPI 63 Digy Snacking can be equipped with a castors kit to make it easier to move around (optional accessory).

Latest addition to the VMI range of dough mixers, GENIUS has been designed to improve the working conditions of the bakers, while rising their efficacity. GENIUS guarantees a perfectly homogeneous mixing with a fast kneading, keeping the blowing-shearing-extension balance required for an optimal dough. User-friendliness has been optimized down to the smallest details, with a pedal built into the frame to move the kneader more easily. A water supply has been fitted to reduce heavy loads and make the cleaning phase easier. Ease of use and robustness are translated into such features as the dual driving system and the shape of the spiral, forged by VMI, to knead all types of flour.
