Moulding of any kind of “pasta filata” cheese: mozzarella, fior di latte, pizza-cheese, provolone, scamorza. If necessary the machine is ideal also for the production of mozzarella with very high humidity content.

The moulding machine mod. DM27 is suited for small daries that want to automate the cheese moulding phase, while maintaining a diversified and small artisan production. The machine has been designed for the production of mozzarella and any “pasta filata” cheeses by means of moulding with different moulding drums and/or special moulding drums and accessories.

Products include: mozzarella from 1 to 500 g; scamorza and provole; slices, disks or other particular shapes; cylindrical products like pizza cheese, provolone etc. up to 3 kg; continuous cords for the manual production of treccia (tress cheese), nodino (knot cheese), oaxaca and string cheese; and cheese dough sheet. Production capacity adjustable up to 200 kg/h.

The cheese mass coming from the cooking-stretching machine falls into the hopper of the moulding machine. The auger inside the machine body pushs the hot cheese mass towards the rotating moulding drum to uniformly fill the moulding cavities, in order to obtain a constant product size.

The rotation of the moulding drum causes the cutting of the cheese portions contained in the moulding cavities.

The particular shape of the moulding cavity radius ensures perfect sealing of the cut fibers. 

The speed of the auger and the moulding drum can be separately adjusted, depending on the moulding drum type, the humidity degree of the product and the desired hourly production. The machine can be supplied with moulding device, complete with moulding tube for cylindrical products up to 3 kg or other moulding accessories for various product sizes.

The moulding machine mod. DM27 is made entirely of AISI 304 stainless steel, the parts in contact with the product are treated with Teflon certified for the food industry.
