Industrial production of croissants with the IMPRESSA croissant

Peak performance from start to finish


A well-established technology can only retain its leading position if you constantly keep improving it. This motto explains the passion inspiring FRTISCH to integrate new solutions into existing lines again and again.

One example for this philosophy is our high-performance IMPRESSA croissant line. 

With the CCT (Croissant Cutting and Turning) system introduced during last iba, we set new standards with regard to performance combined with highest accuracy in shape, position and weight. However the production of croissants requires more working steps besides punching and turning and these have to keep pace with the output from the CCT.

For us performance is not only a question of the number of cycles but also a question of quality and precision. For perfect quality of the final product it is extremely important that the tip end of the coiled product is exactly in the position you desire for proofing and baking. Therefore we optimized our vacuum coiler CSV with its well-proven alignment system in a way that it guarantees an exact position of the tip end of the croissant even for high cycle rates. During the preceding process steps the long moulding unit has been improved so that we are now able to meet our customers‘ request for a higher number of coilings even at 150 cycles per minute

For sophisticated shapes we offer a very special and unique solution on the market: our bending robot CBS. It can bend croissants exactly according to specification up to a closed bent shape. This unit has been expanded by one step to a 3-step execution so that this component can bend the incoming croissant at top speed safely and precisely.

All components of the IMPRESSA croissant combine peak performance with utmost precision and process safety.

  • Punching & turning in one working step
    • for extremely gentle processing,
    • very precise shape, position and weight
    • and a maximum process safety
  • Spring-mounted knives ensuring a precise cut

MULTILFILLER: the suitable solution for every filling


  • Processing of pasty and self-flowing fillings at high capacity
  • Accurate weight depositing spots, stripes or continuous operation
  • Filling amount and deposit pattern adjustable for every single production row

CSV coiler: our vacuum coiler with final positioning


  • For perfectly coiled unfilled and filled croissants
  • Vacuum fixes the triangle from beneath thus ensuring a precise coiling process and a perfect coiling result even during highest output
  • Especially gentle procedure with flexible fields of application for many different product shapes
  • Perfect final position is guaranteed by our alignment unit

New operating concept: intuitive operation with the new 19'' touch panel


With the introduction of the new Siemens 19-inch touch panel we are setting new standards with regard to user friendliness of our lines. It offers an extremely intuitive operation and user guidance. The user interface has also been redesigned and optimized so that functionally related sections are together on one page. This significantly facilitates orientation on the line – especially for unexperienced operators.
