Equipment and options of the head machine SOFT STAR PLUS
The standard for precise dough dividing and moulding

We develop and build all our production lines and machines completely in our own company. The decisive performance features of our lines are their high functional reliability, their excellent profitability, and the consistently high quality of all products they make.


  • The continuous dough feeding is done by three pairs of rollers
  • The pre-portioner can be moved for cleaning and maintenance purposes

Measuring piston

  • The patented mouthpiece of the measuring piston ensures that the dough is divided as gently as possible
  • The dough is compressed less, ensuring dry dough surfaces and accurate weights

Measuring drum and oiling

  • The multi-measuring drum is equipped with two different rows of pistons
  • This enables infinitely variable adjustment of the weight range
  • The measuring drum oiling improves the release of the dough pieces from the measuring piston

Intermediate belt

  • Ensures the necessary relaxation phase of the dough pieces between the dividing and molding process

Moulding drum

  • Moulding drum for the moulding station to cover a defined weight range
  • The moulding revolutions are infinitely variable
  • Moulding can be adapted to the dough consistency

Spreading belt attachment

  • For further transport of the round-moulded dough pieces to the downstream modules


  • Block-off for 1-3 rows
  • Stainless steel dough chamber
  • Flour duster above the moulding drum
  • Flour duster on the spreading belt
  • Pressure roller  and alignment station on the spreading belt attachment
