SPECIALISED PRODUCTION LINE FOR CUTTING OF CHEESE AND YELLOW CHEESE WITH PRECISE WEIGHT
This machine is designated for cutting yellow cheese and cheese from a rectangular loaf into blocks with precise weight. The working principal of the line is as follows: The rectangular loaf of yellow cheese is set in start position; a spinner-pusher moves it to the section for pre-cutting into three roughly equal pieces, then each piece is fed to the conveyor with a scale which measures their weight. Thus the measured piece is transported to the cutting guillotine. During the movement the shape and dimensions of the piece of cheese are measured by laser sensors. Taking the resulting parameters, the microprocessor calculates the thickness of each slice. After the guillotine each slice falls to a check scale and if there is a deviation from the specified weight, it is removed by a rejecter.
