Brining

For the transport of cheese from the brine bath, we use bar or chain conveyor belts. Our scope of delivery starts there where the cheese leaves the brine bath. After the discharge, the cheese can be cured. We have developed a blow-off unit for that, with which the cheese is blown almost completely on each side during the transport.


Cheese treatment

A cheese treatment line consists of various components. De fixed elements constitute of a plasticiser, a board washer and one or several robots and/or manipulators. These components can be added with the charge and discharge system for boxes, cheese and board transport tracks, and possible turners.




Plasticising

The way of curing is of great importance for the final taste of your cheese. The cheese rind plays an important role at that. This is made up by a cheese coating, also called cheese plastic or coating. We offer a reliable solution for the application of this cheese coating. In order to apply the cheese plastic optimally, the Plastomatic, type Economic II, is used. This highly on-developed machine plasticises the top and 60% of the side of the cheeses. After plasticising, the cheeses are returned to the boards in order to dry and cure (further).


Board washing

For the thorough cleaning of the cheese boards with the highest obtainable hygiene, we have a unique and advanced system available whereby the board follow a complete washing programme. The system functions efficiently, requires little maintenance and can be kept clean easily.


Paraffin coating

One of our specialities is paraffin coating. We make use of the latest techniques at that. We offer your fully automated paraffin coating solutions for the most diverse cheese types. You can choose for the conventional approach with a line paraffin coater, but also for robot technique with the so-called robot paraffin coater.


Banding/labelling

For applying a decorative or supportive band and for the application of silk tissue labels, we supply various banding, labelling and re-cladding solutions Depending on the application, applying the bands and labels is done by means of cheese plastic or a glue solution.

For the application of a label on top a cheese, we supply special labelling machines which can process up to 2,400 cheeses per hour. The label is spread out extra after it has been applied. Because of this, and because of the pressing with a bent sponge role, the label can be pressed tightly on the cheese.





Control

In our lines, we can integrate equipment for the weighing and inspection of the cheeses. One could think of the presence of metal, faults or damage, foreign parts or other visual deviations such as stains in the coating. This inspection can be carried out by means of a metal detector, an X-ray device or a visual inspection.


Loading and unloading boxes

One of the first robot that was applied within the cheese industry in the Netherlands, was a robot for loading transport boxes. The use of robots for loading and unloading has since expanded enormously. We supply various systems for the unloading and loading of boxes.


Cover boxes

A specific type of loading and unloading of boxes are the so-called cover boxes. Cheeses are laid from one box type into the other at that. This system is suitable for many cheese types and box types, and can be used for the storage and removal from storage, but also for transferring internally to a different box type.


Small packing

For transferring, depositing and packing various products and packing types, Kaasbehandeling.nl has a broad range of robot systems available. Robots can for instance aid you at removing the cheese from the cutting and portioning systems and take over the depositing in packing machines from you.


Large packing

For the packing of complete cheeses we offer a number of solutions as well. Whether it concerns the large packing of Gouda cheeses (five and/or thirteen kilogram) in quadruple, octagon or in an American folding box, or packing in foil and/or cover box of rectangles: we have a tailor-made solution for you!




Foil packing

There are various options for the vacuum packing of cheeses. The client, the cheese assortment, and the price level of both the packing machine(s) and the foil determine the choice. Usual packing materials include thermoform and shrink coating. The selected machines can be supplied by us and subsequently integrated in an automatically operating system.


Loading and unloading crates

Rectangular cheeses packed in foil are laid in crates for curing. After the foil cheeses have cured, they are removed from the crate for shipment or further processing. The capacity depends on the dimensions of the cheeses. For so-called Euroblocks the maximum capacity amounts to 1,500 pieces per hour. .


(de)Palletising

For the (de)palletising of among other things loose cheeses, foil cheeses, boxes and crates we supply tailor-made robot (de)palletising systems. Thereby we pay attention to the product to be handled, the palletising, the capacity and the set-up.
