JBS (Market Deeping, Peterborough) has introduced a flexible sheeting and curling unit for its Rollmaster range of roll plant. The unit’s horizontal sheeter replaces the conventional vertical unit and is already operational in a customer’s plant in South Africa.

According to the company, in-line sheeting and curling, featuring rolls above and below the band, provides simpler operation and improved maintenance access.

Greater flexibility is also a feature, as the sheeting rollers can be raised to use the unit as a pinner to make round rolls and baps.

Rollmaster plant is a modular system which can be configured to suit individual customers, producing soft, hard and fruited rolls, as well as flat breads, pizza bases and focaccia.
