At All Torque Transmissions, we could have told you this a while ago, as we have seen production at a few of our bakery customers switch over to the little fruit buns with the tell-tale cross.
Australians enjoy hot cross buns in a variety of styles. Of course, there is the traditional version, but it is the alternative versions that seem to get the most attention.
There is one version with chocolate chips instead of currants, but the latest trend is for the coffee flavoured variety. This is probably more in keeping with the obsession with coffee that Australians have!
The production of hot cross buns mirrors that of standard fruit buns, with the added process of putting the white dough strips on top.
The power transmission equipment involved normally has to cope with high heat transference, as well as wash down conditions.
We have already had a few things to say about some of the issues with power transmission in the food production industry.
