MULTITWIST: This all-rounder is much more than a pretzel machine

For a wide range of products made from dough strands

High capacity, high stroke-rate, top-quality products at a minimum noise level – these are just a few of the advantages of the MULTITWIST. Modern technology combined with many years of experience make it the ideal machine for twisted products and this concept has already won several awards.

Thanks to a variety of tools, the MULTITWIST is much more than a pretzel machine. It can produce many other twisted products such as plaits, knots, rings, sticks, loops and flat bread in different sizes and from different dough types. The tools can be simply and quickly changed without the need for additional assembly tools.

A single MULTITWIST can produce 2,000 pretzels per hour effortlessly. For industrial pretzel production up to 10 modules can be set up in parallel thus increasing the output to up to 20,000 pretzels per hour.
