According to the company, the line’s output is up to 50 percent higher than that of other industrial bread roll lines currently available, with an hourly capacity of 45,000 pieces for stamped products. It can be used to produce round stamped, long rolled, long rolled folded, long rolled convoluted and flattened bread rolls.
