The variable rounder from bmTEC gently shapes your dough pieces - even very soft (organic) doughs - into the desired form. You determine the number of rows in which your products pass through the rounder, as well as the contact pressure, number, speed and direction of the knitting strokes. Our rounders are designed to meet the requirements of your products.

Like all our line modules, the rounder is mobile and easily integrated into the entire line by means of a quick-locking and locking system.

After use, the rounder with its easily removable knitting cups can be cleaned quickly and efficiently.

Customer benefit

Forming of square dough pieces into round ones

Good knitting result even with soft doughs

Experience from a baker:
The big advantage over a drum rounder is that I can run much softer doughs in the cup rounder and adjust the machine perfectly to my wishes. For example, I can turn the "Rosenbrötchen" back a bit, set them down on a floured plank, store them at about 4°C, cook and bake them. This way, I get great torn-open bun crusts that my customers love.
