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's cheese depositors offer a solution for significant cost savings.

What goes wrong with traditional machines?

Many production lines presently use a water spraying system before a cheese waterfall. The idea is to make the shredded cheese stick better 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 depositor 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:

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.
