A large variety of processes occur in the Wegmans bakery. The manual process of Parbake rounding has been determined to be an ergonomically challenging job. When the raw dough comes down a conveyor to the employee, he or she has to grab the dough, cup their hands around it, and move their hands and arms in a circular motion while tucking the dough to achieve a smooth round ball of dough. The Twister Dough Rounding design is meant to improve the Wegmans Parbake line by reducing ergonomic injuries that may occur and improving the quality of the final product while maintaining production efficiency.
