The laminating line for industrial dough sheet production

LAMINATOR 900/1100/1300

The product quality of your pastries and croissants starts with the dough sheet - and thus at FRITSCH in the industrial sector with the LAMINATOR 900/1100/1300. Gentle, flexible and precise - the perfect start.

When a dough sheet is formed and laminated, it is crucial to maintain the already developed structure of the dough – even when processing large amounts and natural dough.

The FRITSCH LAMINATOR reliably processes the whole range of different dough types: from short dough to puff pastry, Danish and yeast dough through to the soft dough types of modern, rustic bakery products such as baguettes or ciabatta bread. The SoftProcessing technology processes all dough types very gently. Starting from forming of the dough sheet to laminating and stress-free sheeting through to the transfer to the make-up line – the components of the laminating line lay the foundations for the excellent quality of the resulting final products. The laminating components allow for 4 to 144 layers – depending on the line configuration and the number of folding systems.

The LAMINATOR can be cleaned very easily and quickly due to its coated surfaces, efficient scrapers, hygienic stainless steel design, removable flour containers, quick release mechanisms on all conveyor belts and the removable folding channels. Moreover, one single person can operate it using its central control via a touchscreen.

  • Continuous dough sheet production at the highest levels of quality
  • Gentle working method to maintain the dough structure
  • Wide range of applications due to the possibility to process very different types of dough
  • Quick and easy operation


"With the LAMINATOR from FRITSCH, perfection starts with the dough sheet. Its precise and gentle operation makes it the key to outstanding results."

Michael Gier | Manager World of Bakery

The LAMINATOR 900/1100/1300 in detail

The LAMINATOR can be flexibly configured depending on the type of dough. 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 combination of a LAMINATOR with 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

Fat or butter is conveyed via the fat pump and applied to the dough sheet as a fat band. The FRITSCH fat pump ensures optimum flow properties of the fat and thus an extremely uniform fat band. The new nozzle makes it possible to individually adjust the desired thickness of the fat band quickly and easily. A water separator can also be installed as an option. The pipe system leading from the pump to the nozzle can be easily removed for cleaning.

  • Uniform fat band
  • Individual adjustment of the thickness of the fat band

The standard folding channel has motorized belts and is suitable for folding widths of up to 800 millimeters. It can even be used for processing sensitive doughs. The active forward feed and guidance of the dough sheet during the folding motion prevent any additional tensile stresses in the dough sheet.

As an option, it is also possible to use a horizontal folding station. This allows overlapping of cut dough sheet segments so it is even possible to fold odd numbers of layers.

  • Uniformly folded layers
  • Avoidance of tensile stresses due to driven belts

Our cooling technology for extremely gentle cooling and resting for the dough sheet is based on a combination of contact cooling and convection cooling. This way, the desired core temperature of the dough sheet is reached very quickly, and the process thus stabilized. Our cooling cells consist of cooling plates, which are modularly integrated into the cooling tunnel’s conveyor belt system. One cooling cell comprises up to ten levels, depending on the desired capacity. The temperature of each conveyor belt level can be individually regulated. In order to prevent the dough from drying out or forming skin, we use a low air flow rate in our cooling cells.

  • Fast cooling down through contact cooling
  • Prevention of skin formation and dehydration

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. 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.

  • Fast sheeting of the dough (max. reduction degree of 10:1)
  • Gentle processing 

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.

  • Uniform sheeting
  • Tension- and stress-free transport

To operate the LAMINATOR, it is only necessary to set the output and number of layers; all subsequent adjustments to the folding width or number of layers are calculated automatically. For greater clarity and user-friendliness, the entire line is displayed on the control panel. This facilitates orientation on the line and enables the user to quickly access the required operating level.

  • Simple and intuitive operation of the line
  • Excellent overview of the running process
