Our point of difference lies in our ability to develop and deliver custom solutions in response to each customer’s specific needs.

Drawing on our full range of equipment and integrating these with additional equipment from other suppliers, H&C can provide complete line integration and optimisation.

    Cheese and dairy product processing is an industry of expertise for H&C.

    For cheese processors we can provide an integrated solution for the back end of processing, from the cheese tower to palletising.

    And for cheese converters we provide this integration at the front end, from de-palletising through de-packaging to deliver an unwrapped block ready for cutting, slicing or other further processing.

    Many of our systems can also be applied to butter, cream and other dairy products.

    H&C, BetaVac and Milmeq technology has been installed for many of the world’s biggest names in dairy. All of our systems have a reputation for reliability and simplicity of operation.

    Mechanical De-Bagger

    H&C has been providing automated bag removal technologies since 2001. The latest model of our Mechanical De-Bagger uses the same reliable and thoroughly tested design as a foundation but incorporates multiple technological advancements to maximise hygiene and safety.

    The H&C Mechanical De-Bagger is specifically designed to handle 20kg/40lb blocks of cheese. It reliably delivers 12 de-bagged blocks per minute to the processing line, with no manual handling required.

    The Mechanical De-Bagger can be used as a standalone piece of equipment or as part of a full turnkey solution.

    Key benefits:
    • Reduced labour – allows staff to be re-deployed to higher value work
    • Elimination of manual handling, knives and the associated risk of injury to staff
    • Improved hygiene – removes risk of contamination through touch
    • Best in class footprint
