Ultrasonic cheese cutting – Ultrasonics and robotics combined

Increasingly, cheese producers – or cutters and packers – are looking to reduce costs in an increasingly competitive market. What are the key target areas? Principally , we are talking about yield, giveaway, increased quality of cut product, output and less labour utilisation. Here we have addressed all these by utilising ultrasonic cheese cutting combined robotic system for the cheese producer.

Combined the power of ultrasonic cutting, advanced automation and robotic technology to provide a comprehensive cutting and picking system. At the heart of the solution is ultrasonic block cutting machine, which accepts wire cut blocks from the customer’s existing equipment and ultrasonically portions them to produce multiple mini-portions per cut. A special portion separator is then used to present the cut portions to a robotic pick and place system ; this features an Flexpicker 360 unit, equipped with a vacuum picking head and operating in conjunction with the Pickmaster vision system.  The robot makes light work of identifying and then picking the portions – placing them onto the infeed to the customer’s existing flow wrapping machine.


The cutting and picking solution means that manual handling of input blocks and output mini portions is kept to a minimum, whilst at the same time guaranteeing excellent cut quality, giveaway and yield. The system can be configured to cut standard blocks and slices, and the robot pick and place is easily adapted to new cutting requirements.  As you’d expect with all systems – standard or customised – flexibility and future proofing is key.
