The universal solution for the dough sheet production


Producing continuous dough sheets of the highest quality in reliable manner - with the FRITSCH DOUGHLINER 700. Due to its compact dimensions, the line can be installed even in small bakeries with limited space.

In technical terms the DOUGHLINER 700 does not fall short of its industrial counterpart: in both cases the sheeting unit consists of a satellite head, a cross roller and a calibrating head. This combination treats your dough gently and preserves the desired pore structure under a homogenous surface even when processing soft dough. Moreover, it achieves very accurate weights across the total dough sheet width.

The DOUGHLINER 700 is extremely flexible from the very beginning: the line can be fed with dough blocks, as well as from bins or dough sheets from a FRITSCH dough sheeter – typical batches of between 100 and 800 kg per hour.

The DOUGHLINER 700 is an all-rounder for dough processing. It can handle yeast dough, short dough, croissant dough, Danish and puff pastry, as well as wheat and mixed rye dough equally perfectly. Infrared sensors and an intelligent dough loop control make sure that the dough sheet is transported without tension or stress.

  • High automation and process reliability due to continuous dough sheet production
  • Gentle and consistent sheeting for premium quality
  • High level of diversity and flexibility due to its ability to process a wide variety of dough types
  • Low space requirement due to very compact design


The DOUGHLINER 700 can be combined with the FRITSCH make-up lines VARIOFLEX M 700, VARIOFLEX L 700 and MULTIFLEX L 700 to one processing line, the so-called PROGRESSA.

"With the FRITSCH DOUGHLINER 700, you not only get the highest quality, but also flexibility in dough sheet production. It is extremely gentle on the dough and guarantees precise results."

Markus Fackelmann | Senior Expert Bakery

The DOUGHLINER 700 in detail

As an option, the DOUGHLINER 700 can be fed with a dough sheet former. The "Low-Stress" dough sheeter TBP is ideally suited for the gentle sheeting of doughs with a hydration rate of 145 to 175. This system regularly reduces the dough in four steps and the pressure is minimised accordingly.

The dough sheet former DS with its three rollers is particularly recommended for firm doughs that don’t require any proofing times. A clean separation of the dough sheet from the rollers is guaranteed by scrapers. An infra-red sensor controls a flawless transfer of the dough sheet onto the conveyor table without stretch or accumulation.

  • Flexible dough sheeting options
  • “Low-Stress” system for soft doughs

The heart and soul of our Soft-Processing technology is the FRITSCH satellite head. This forms the dough sheet quickly while going gentle on the dough texture and giving the sheet its desired thickness. Soft dough types are supported on the DOUGHLINER 700 at decisive points by electrically powered transfer rollers. If laminated doughs are next on the agenda, you can simply push these rollers to the side and out of the way. An integrated, driven pressing roller ensures that the dough is pressed down gently before it enters the satellite head. The roller gaps of the pressing roller and the satellite head are infinitely adjustable by motor. The satellite head achieves a reduction degree of max. 10:1. The rollers are continuously cleaned using scrapers or brushes. The dough removed by the scrapers is collected in stainless steel trays.

  • Quick but gentle reduction of the dough
  • Support for soft doughs

Gently but surely, the cross-roller unit spreads the dough to just the right width while simultaneously releasing it from whatever tension may be present. the toothed belt drive works hygienically - and quietly.

The calibrating head works the dough sheet into the desired uniform and structurally stable final thickness. For puff pastry and Danish dough types the reduction degree is around 2:1. If wafer-thin premium quality with perfect lift is the goal, simply add a second calibrating head. The so-called dough loop control with infra-red sensors ensures a tension- and accumulation-free dough sheet transport. Non-contact sensors monitor the dough sheet progression and adjust the drive speed if necessary. The dough sheet runs in a continuous, tension-free loop.

  • Uniform sheeting
  • Tension- and stress-free transport

The dough sheet can be longitudinally cut directly on the DOUGHLINER 700. The cutting frame can then be omitted on sequential lines (such as the FRITSCH MULTIFLEX L).

The outfeed table of the DOUGHLINER 700 is designed with minimal height of drop to minimize stress on the dough. It can be conveniently height-adjusted and swivelled for adaptation to subsequent lines or tables.
