Application Description: 
Pressing cheese blocks from molds.

A cheese producer was looking for an electric actuator to press out cheese blocks from formed molds. The actuator needed to withstand high-pressure, high-temperature caustic wash down procedures and offer a hygienic design to conform to the facilities production standards.

Tolomatic Solution:
Tolomatic provided an ERD25 electric rod actuator with a hygienic all stainless steel design approved by the USDA for use in meat (livestock), poultry and dairy processing applications. The IP69K rated actuator was provided with a longer than standard stroke in order to release cheese blocks from the larger molds.

Customer Benefit:

  • Actuator delivered hygienic design, while subjected to vigorous wash down procedures
  • No need for expensive actuator guarding
  • Reduced overall machine costs and reduces cleaning time
  • Electric actuation provides more control and consistance than traditional pneumatic cylinders
