    Variable Thickness Control 

    • Makes it possible to achieve desired thickness and ensures consistent thickness at the same dough ball weight.
    Production 

    • 18” platen allows for making variable crust sizes and thickness up to 18 inches. The size of the crust is determined by the weight of the dough ball and the thickness setting.
    • Depends on the desired size of the crust:
      9” to 18” = 150-200/hr.
      7” to 9” = 300-400/hr.
      6” or under = 600-800/hr.
