IMPRESSA croissant: The high-performance line for coiled products

Cutting and turning in one step for accurate weight, shape and position

The IMPRESSA croissant line is “high-tech made in Germany”, which ensures a safe and permanently reproducible baking process. It not only produces outstanding croissants in every shape but also the entire range of coiled products fully automatically and in large quantities and premium quality.

Extremely gentle dough handling from the dough sheet to lamination and sheeting lays the foundation for the outstanding quality of the final products. The well-proven LAMINATOR 3000 is the centerpiece within the IMPRESSA croissant system to ensure this.

The IMPRESSA croissant cuts and turns the triangular dough pieces in a single fluent step. This guarantees consistent shapes, accurate weight and position, therefore creating the best pre-conditions for continuous high-speed processing and top-quality products.

The CSV vacuum coiler provides extremely accurate coiling. A suction device underneath the table holds the dough pieces in place so that they can be coiled precisely. The products are bent fully automatically offering many different types of bending including closed rings exactly according to the customer’s request and ensuring exact positioning.
