The Pietroberto Bread Plant from Norbake (Batley, West Yorks) can produce bloomers, tinned bread and full-sized French sticks, among others, and 150 of the units are already in service in the UK.

The compact Pietroberto has a weight range of 120-1,200g and features variable speed and adjustable time in the pocket prover. The divider has a Teflon-coated hopper and a new styler/hander-up system, eliminating the need for a conical rounder. The moulder is fitted with an adjustable top pressure board, which moves more slowly than the bottom belt, helping to reduce the stress on the dough during the final mould.

Both divider and moulder are fitted with lockable castors, making them easy to move and maintain.
