At H&C, we are constantly innovating to develop solutions that can enhance efficiency and drive growth in your business.

When talking to our customers around the world, they have the same challenges in their processing businesses: labour, worker safety, hygiene and product safety and quality control. The most cost-effective way to address these issues is automation.

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.

    The H&C Robotic De-Bagger automates the removal of vacuum bags from multiple cheese block sizes.

    Also known as the De-Bagger Multi Block, or DBMB, it is capable of managing virtually any block size or type on-the-fly, without resets or staff inputs.

    It safely and reliably removes the vacuum bag to present an undamaged, uncontaminated block to the processing line every time.

    When combined with the H&C Defect and Foreign Object Detection module, the system provides unprecedented confidence that product entering the processing line is in perfect condition, free from defects and foreign objects.

    Key benefits:

    • Increased productivity with less stoppages for product changes, resets or errors
    • Risk of product contamination is removed
    • Reduced labour – allows staff to be re-deployed to higher value work
    • Eliminates manual handling, knives and associated health and safety risks for staff
    • Waste plastic is managed efficiently in specialised units
