Extensive knowledge on the workings of the Lanham Baking Plant as designed by Tweedy of Burnley, England has been gained by the team comprising Quintin, Chad and Nathanael. This system is made up of a chain that is hydraulically drawn through its track, continuously picking up pans and taking them through the process of either proofing or baking before transferring to other conveyor systems to complete the baking cycle. The track and its chain are maintained on a weekly basis to ensure optimum performance in the production of the well-known Albany brand. As the chain grows over time links are removed so that there is always enough tension to prevent slack that can lead to costly breakdowns. The combination of hydraulics, pneumatics, steam, gas and electricity that makes the system work needs to be checked and calibrated at regular intervals to maintain the efficiency of the system.
