Koenig, the specialist manufacturer of automatic roll plants, has recently introduced what it says is its most versatile industrial roll plant yet.

The new Koenig Rex Industry plant produces a full range of traditional products, such as round rolls, baps, finger rolls, bridge rolls, teacakes, fruited buns, Swiss buns and ball doughnuts and, in addition, also produces a wide range of stamped rolls, cut rolls and mini baguettes. The incorporation of a special moulding belt also enables oval products to be made on the plant.

The finger products can either be simply moulded between two belts or the dough pieces can be sheeted and curled using Koenig’s unique convoluting shoes. If cylindrical, hot dog-style products are required then side guides are deployed on the forming station to control the shape and length of the product precisely.A stamping unit allows different designs of stamped rolls to be made and different patterned stamping heads can be changed in seconds.

The roll plant is available from four rows to eight rows with capacities up to 24,000 pieces per hour. Koenig plants in the UK and Ireland are supplied, installed and supported by European Process Plant (Epsom, Surrey).
