Cheese depositing on buns
Industrial production of cheese buns is hard to do. It is a costly part of many production lines. Many producers have been looking for alternatives to the traditional cheese waterfall systems. FoodJet depositors offer a solution for significant cost savings.
What goes wrong?
Many production lines presently use a water spraying system before a cheese waterfall. The idea is to make the shredded cheese better stick to the product because of the water. Nevertheless, you see a lot of things that go wrong:
- Cheese does not stick to the water adhesive and falls off
- In many cases, more than 50% of the cheese is returned by a carousel system
- Material falls off in the freezing tunnel, causing major cleaning issues
- Products do not look nice in the packaging as most of the cheese has already fallen off before
Cheese depositing alternative
FoodJet offers a liquid cheese alternative that has proven to be a major leap forward in many aspects. You replace your water spraying system with a system that applies liquid cheese. This cheese will function as an adhesive for the following waterfall system. This investment creates a fantastic ROI:
- All cheese that falls on your products will remain there. So you can significantly reduce the number of cheese flakes.
- Cleaning costs downstream are simplified tremendously.
- Client appreciation of the final product has increased
Any conveying system
It does not matter if your products are on a tray or a conveyor belt. FoodJet can handle many different conveying systems. As we deposit all material on the product, the pollution of the production line downstream is neglectable.

What other products to deposit cheese on?
The FoodJet depositing technology stands out because of its flexibility. It is particularly suitable for applying cheese to products that are not aligned, products that have odd shapes, or maybe even product flows with multiple shapes at the same time. The FoodJet vision system will capture it all. Anything is possible. Just reach out to us and schedule a demo in our test lab.
