D-TXM-2-18 Dual Heated Press

High to Medium Volume Production at an Affordable Price.

  • The D-TXM-2-18 commercial manual dual-heat dough press is incredibly versatile. It can be used with dual-heat, upper heat only, or no heat – making it the perfect choice for all types of products. The D-TXM-2-18 is a press for medium to high volume production. Its heavy-duty stainless steel construction and cam over-lock make it the top manual press in the industry. The D-TXM-2-18 is a swing-away design with upper and lower heated platens.

    The D-TXM-2-18 Dual Heated Platens speed up production, and that is where the real dough is! Operators are able to press thinner products faster and with consistency. Dough flow is important, and this unit allows dough to be pressed straight from refrigeration, keeping the dough from shrinking back.

    The D-TXM-2-18 is an easy, affordable way to improve your production time as well as your finished product. It is great for both pizza and tortilla dough. The D-TXM-2-18 Variable Thickness Control makes it possible to achieve desired thickness and ensures consistent thickness at the same dough ball weight. The D-TXM-2-18 requires no skilled labor, unlike hand tossing. Our presses are safe and have no age requirements, unlike sheet/roller equipment. The D-TXM-2-18 is one of the easiest presses to use and operate. Prepare dough balls, set temp and thickness, center the dough ball on the lower platen, and press the dough. Pizza was never this productive!

  • Dual Heated Platens 

    Pizza/Tortilla Dough

    • Speeds up production (faster pressing times)
    • Enables pressing thinner products
    • Aids dough flow
    • Allows dough to be pressed straight from refrigeration unit
    • Helps keep dough from shrinking back

    Pizza Dough

    • Enables pressing thinner products
    • Aids in pressing sticky dough
    • Helps activate yeast for faster proofing if desired
    • Enables par baking pizza crust

    Tortilla Dough

    • Initial grill off for tortillas
    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.
    Pressing Tips

    • Recommended Time:
      1-3 seconds
    • Recommended Temperature:
      275°-300°

    Par Bake Pizza Dough

    • Recommended Time:
      Depends on percent par bake desired
    • Recommended Temperature:
      250°-350°

    Fresh Pizza Dough

    • Recommended Time:
      Warm dough, moderate to high yeast…2 seconds
      Cold dough, moderate yeast…4-6 seconds
      Cold dough, small amount of yeast…8 seconds
    • Recommended Temperature:
      Warm dough…110°F, Cold dough…150°F
    Finished Product 

    • Pressed dough keeps air in the crust, unlike sheeted dough where the air is forced out of the crust. Pressed dough is consistent in thickness and size, unlike hand tossed where the thickness and size can be inconsistent.
    Use 

    • D-TXM-2-18 is easy to use. Prepare dough balls, set temp/thickness, place dough ball in center of lower platen, and press the dough.
    Labor 

    • Presses require no skilled labor, unlike hand tossing.
    • Presses are safe and have no age requirements, unlike sheeters/rollers.
