EQUIPMENT
line of conveyors and equipment, which provide such solutions
to cheese manufacturers who work with various product and
packaging sizes. By combining the steps in one system, it offers
increased operational efficiency, reliability and durability,
minimalizing physical damage and decreasing cost.
There also is new equipment desinged to help cheese
makers with the process of dry salting cheese and evenly
distributing salt on the cheese's surface. Salt can stop
bacteria from forming while also adding to the flavor of
the cheese.
Tetra Pak offers its Dry-salter for mozzarella cheese,
its Salt-Dispenser 2 for cheddar and other types of cheeses, and
a White Cheese Salt Dosing unit, which adds the salt to storage
tanks, ensuring a consistent salting of cheese.
Weber, a Kansas City, Mo., equipment manufacturer, added
an integrated X-ray and 3D scanning technologies to its cheese
processing equipment, which was designed to slice, package and
deliver cheese more efficiently.
Reiser's offerings in the cheese industry include the Vemag
Cheese Block Former for portioning and forming a variety of
cheese or butter products. The Vemag helps produce everything
from cheese spreads and dips to reforming of semi-hard cheese
into snack sticks, cheese slices, or bars and loafs that can be
used in further processing.
" For cheese production, our Seydelmann bowl choppers
are used for making cold pack cheese, along with flavored
cheese where inclusions can be uniformly mixed in, " said Adam
Wozniak, dairy application specialist with Canton, Mass.-based
Reiser. " Our bowl choppers are also used for size reduction of
hard cheese types such as parmesan or Romano. "
Additionally, Holac, Reiser's brand for dicing/shredding
and cutting, offers machines to handle small enterprises
to high-capacity operations. For packaging, Reiser offers
horizontal form/fill/seal machines and the Supervac as a bagsealing
machine.
" The Holac Cheesemax 200 is one of our latest
advancements, " Wozniak said. " The design eliminates precutting
and transforms 40-pound cheese blocks into shreds, cubes,
crumbles, sticks in a compact footprint. The Cheesemax can also
process odd-sized pieces from conversion lines and turn them
into shreds. "
A CUT ABOVE
Urschel, Chesterton, Ind., focuses on food cutting technology,
partnering with cheese processors to deliver high-capacity,
precision shredders and dicers to fit their production line needs.
The company said leading cheese processors also may
benefit from its network of sales and support, as well as free-ofcharge
test cutting of their products.
" Urschel engineering develops patented cutting methods

The Salt-Dispenser 2 from Tetra Pak is designed for
cheddar and other cheeses.
to improve customer profitability, " said Alan Major, chief sales
officer for the company. " Cutting principles, including knives,
mechanics, drive parts and powerful motors, work in sync to
deliver targeted, in-spec cuts. "
For example, its SH-14 MicroAdjustable Shredding Head
employs 14 shredding stations, almost doubling the capacity of
normal CC series shredders.
" The head was developed so processors could produce more
cheese shreds without the expense of purchasing an additional
machine, " Major said. " The knives and modular construction
reduce time spent on maintenance and head changeovers are
much easier for the operator. The SH-14 also offers significant
cost-savings through a reduction in blade changes and overall
reduction in part consumption. "
For cheese dicing, Urschel's Affinity Series processes highfat,
cold-temperature and normally difficult-to-cut products.
" The feed roll and feed drum offer additional assistance
transitioning product throughout the cutting zone, " Major said.
" Optional outboard bearing reinforces the cutting components to
handle even the toughest applications. "
Not only does Urschel manufacture high-speed cutting
equipment, it also produces all crucial knives and cutting
components and critical parts to make sure cheese quality is
maintained throughout the process. And the company offers
more knife options to increase knife life.
With advancements in equipment happening so rapidly,
it could be that specialty cheesemakers and processors may
decide to wait a while before making any change in equipment,
but industry insiders believe they should be updating more
frequently, as it will save time and money in the long run.
Major said newer equipment offers increased capacity and
simplified maintenance and sanitary design. Newer cutting
machinery also offers simple, lock-in adjustability.
" This leads to cost-savings in terms of less operator
involvement, " he said. " Higher capacities in less time
improve profitability. "
