Designed to be flexible in its handling of viscous doughs, the DRB model comprises an intermittent running conveyor for baking molds, a head with a hopper, and a teflonized chute for dough feeding. A guillotine system with interchangeable die-plates is used for dough portioning. The equipment can also be supplied with a double jacketed hopper for mix cooling or heating, a grid to facilitate hand loading the mix, and also a motorized scraper for use with viscous mixes.

Featuring a user-friendly touchscreen panel, all the machine functions are easily programmable to simplify operation. The DRB unit has also been designed to incorporate as few components as possible, which facilitates inspection and cleaning and minimizes down time as all the parts that come into contact with the product can be easily stripped down.
