Equipment and plants for making all types of cheese: Mozzarella,Swisse Cheese, Feta, Cheedar etc, and drying & maturing systems.

 

 

Cheese Making System

 

Dry Cooker 

Dry Cooker is the first mozzarella system that uses electromagnetic power in place of the traditional cooker/stretcher cook water. Electromagnetic cooking eliminates fat loss to water and allows for precise temperature control, ensuring the curd is heated to the exact desired temperature.

 

Single Auger Cookers

For medium to high production capacities. This cooker stretcher offers the highest production rates in the world while maintaining gentle stretching with long residence times for improved fat retention and maximum yield. Various models are available covering mid- to high-capacity cheese production.

 

Dual Auger Cookers

For low to medium production capacities. More compact in size, these machines offer thorough, dual-auger blending and ease of use. It offers proven, rugged designs that will suit your cheese production needs and your budget.

 


Molders

  • Highest molding capacity in the world
  • Increased product yields
  • Excellent fiber alignment
  • Superior rapid cooling
  • USDA/3A sanitary design
  • Available with Allen Bradley or Siemens control packages
  • Capacities exceed 12,000 lbs per hour on a single machine
  • No chill water-to-product contact
  • Exceptional weight & shape control
  • CIP Standard
  • Interchangeable non-teflon molds 30+ inchesin height
  • Automated operation with minimal operator intervention

 

String Cheese Autoloader

String Cheese Autoloader primarily used for the high-speed loading of more delicate products such as fresh cheese sticks. Upon delivery to the unscrambler, product is gently aligned using launcher belts. During sanitation procedures, this equipment may be easily disassembled without tools in less than an hour.

 

Cheese Processing System

 

Cutting

Our cutting machines can cut blocks of cheese into random as well as exact weight sizes in various dimensions. In addition, these machines can reduce large blocks into cubes for shredding, grinding, grating, and melting for industrial use. Our cheese cutters operate in manual, semi-automatic, or fully automatic mode depending on application and production requirements. Many custom cutters have been designed for unique applications. 

 

Shredding

Designed for lower volumes, Cheese Shredders has a dual containment center and has become quite popular with retail grocery chains, pizzerias, and food service institutions. This machine has enabled many low- and medium-volume cheese processors to compete in the marketplace with its heavy-duty ruggedness, ease of operation, and versatility.

 

Slicing 

When it comes to high productivity and a wide range of applications, the Slicer offers one of the most efficient combinations on the market. The choice between circular or involute blade technology allows the machine to be used for a wide variety of applications and capacities.

  • Highest capacities with circular blade (up to 750 rpm) or involute blade (up to 2000 rpm)
  • Slicing up to 440 mm width and 180 mm high
  • Best flexibility covering all market portions patterns (shingle, stack, zig-zag, shaved, folded, rolled, free programmable contour patterns)
  • Award-winning hygiene concept

Cheese Press

Designed for reprocessing of trim into blocks as well as general curd pressing, the vacuum tunnel cheese press provides a modular solution for the cheese pressing needs of large operations as well as single block operations.

Uniquely designed, the horizontal approach to pressing cheese allows various shapes and sizes to be pressed using the same equipment. Highlights include:

  • Fully programmable vacuum and pressing operations
  • Independence from “mold-specific” pressing machinery
  • Completely modular design allows for flexibility
  • No product loss at start or end of production runs
  • Minimal downtime between product changeover
  • Easily cleaned and operated

Wax Tanks

Wax tanks provide a sealed, protective coating over your cheese, assuring a safe and long shelf life while adding an attractive, eye-appealing package for your merchandising. We offer easiest, simplest and safest operating different sizes wax tank systems.
