The dough dividing-and-moulding machine, Soft Star CTi,
which produces particularly efficient dough balls of high quality
and weight accuracy, will be highlighter in the booth. This technology is optimally adapted for processing doughs with extremely high dough absorption and dough rest. The separation of the
dough processing area and the drive area, as well as the modular
design of the machine, makes maintenance of the machine easy.
WP will show visitors how good ergonomics, optimal accessibility, easy-to-exchange interchange parts and a graphical user interface complete the profile of the SoftStar CTi. The hygienic design
provides good accessibility to all dough contacting components.
As such, dough residues can be removed quickly and completely.
Using long-lasting drives along with its robust design, the Soft
Star CTi is specifically designed for use in multi-shift operations.
