Portioning

Curd quality and portioning technique determines the quality of the cheese at a very early stage. Deviations cannot be easily corrected and have a direct influence on weight, consistency, shape and quality of the cheese.

ALPMA has developed various portioning systems for a large variety of cheeses, which are tailor-made to the various demands.

Block Moulds

Moulds have a great influence on the form, dry matter and final weight of the cheese. For this reason ALPMA placed great importance on the development of its cheese moulds. Quite often, intensive trials on site are the only way of finding the correct mould.

Movement from Rack to Rack

The cheese must be removed from the mould, either prior to or after salting. This is best done fully-automatically.

The loading of the ripening racks is carried out by a vacuum drawing device. The negative pressure used is very low and is gentle on the sensitive skin of the raw cheese. The suckers are of a hygienic design and are easy to clean.
