At the trade fair Anuga FoodTec in Cologne, special innovation projects of the international food and supply industry will be awarded with the acknowledged award of the International FoodTec Award. The jury decided that it is worth to award the Silver International FoodTec Award to this innovative cutting solution. The USS 1000 Helios provides for the first time an automatic cutting solution for soft cheese.
The challenge: Up to now, there was no ultrasonic cutting solution for lots of cheese. Existing ultrasonic cutters only offer a limited cutting quality for e.g. soft cheese. Therefore, cutting cheese, in particular in the premium segment, is a challenging task.
The innovation: With the USS 1000 Helios cutting machine, the company Döinghaus cutting and more GmbH & Co. KG offers a modular machine concept to cut soft and hard cheese, which is for the first time combined in one machine.
The central component is the patented Helios circular blade, which allows cutting soft and hard cheese. The Helios circular blade “rolls through” the cheese and thus creates a high-quality cut without discharge. At this, the blade vibrates up to 20,000 times per second.
