Emmi Käse AG

Client/developer: Emmi Käse AG

Place: Kirchberg

Project: conveyor system for cheese preparation

Year of construction: 2012

As general contractor, Frei Fördertechnik AG implemented the system from planning to commissioning, including the control unit. The feeding of the cheese wheels to the passing machine or to the blade is monitored automatically so that the correct mixtures are produced every time. The weight of the filled "paloxes" (pallet boxes) is automatically detected, and the palox is replaced as needed. The system meets the strictest requirements in terms of sanitary design.
