The discontinuous cooking-stretching and moulding machine mod. Compact 100 is suitable for small dairies, that want to automate the steps of cutting, cooking-stretching and moulding of the cheese, while maintaining a diversified and small artisan production. In fact the machine works in batches, and therefore allows very high flexibility for the artisanal cheese makers who do not need a high and constant production capacity.

The machine consists of a curd slicer where the curd blocks are cut into the desired size by rotating knives, mounted on a cutting disk with adjustable speed.

The curd slices, coming from the curd slicer, feed the cooking-stretching section, where is carried out the kneading by the mechanical action of stretching arms with adjustable speed. The cheese maker adjusts the input and quantity of water as needed, depending on the product being processed.

The cheese mass then passes through a special discharge outlet and is fed into the moulder, designed for the production of spherical shaped mozzarella or other products with various shapes and/or sizes. 

The cooking-stretching and moulding machine is made entirely of AISI 304 stainless steel, the parts in contact with the product are treated with Teflon certified for the food industry.
