A new toolkit for the MultiTwist from Fritsch USA can make single-strand braids with a handmade look. Such braids formed from lye (pretzel) or bread roll dough are among the most labor-intensive and complicated products in the baking business. The module twists braids with the finesse of a baker’s hands. Similar to hand production, the starting point is a cylindrical dough string about 450 mm long. Gripper arms twist one braid after the other from dough pieces weighing approximately 90 to 110 g. The braider’s capacity is about 1,000 pieces per hour.
