JBS (Peterborough, Cambridge-shire) has developed a new, flexible sheeting and curling unit for its Rollmaster range of roll plant.

In-line sheeting and curling, featuring rolls above and below the band, provides simpler operation, while still retaining the high-speed high-friction belting that provides the quality features of positive curling of dough pieces for finger rolls and baguettes, says the firm.

It can also raise the sheeting rollers and use the unit as a pinner to make round rolls and baps. End-product and output needs run from 1,000 to 30,000 per hour, in a scaling range from 25g to 350g.
