Portioning and packaging hard and semi-hard cheeses

Date: 26.10.2023Source: CibusTec

In the Industry and Demo area of Italian trade show Cibus Tec, a line replicates the processes of portioning and packaging hard and semi-hard cheeses. The initial step is cutting, a process that can be conducted with different diameters and heights, resulting in products with fixed geometry or calibrated weight. The portioned cheese is transported to a quality control system that employs 2D and 3D analysis to examine the product. Two anthropomorphic robots handle it, placing it on machines dedicated to packaging, either in a modified atmosphere (MAP) with subsequent weight-price automatic adjustment or on skin packaging attached to cardboard (with passage through a combined X-ray system and a checkweigher for the detection of foreign bodies). Safety at work is also considered in this line, with specific stainless steel protections safeguarding tasks performed by human operators.
