The world has changed and finding dependable labor has become a big challenge. Automating your cheese handling process will reduce your labor dependency. With the cost of automation falling and a shortage of available workers, it is becoming easier to justify capital investment.
Repetitive operations are ideal applications for automation. These functions often lead to injuries related to the poor ergonomic conditions. Some job functions require sharp tools which increases the risk of injury. When evaluating equipment for handling cheese blocks, barrels and 640s, many companies overlook the expenses related to lost time.
Human machine operators are flexible, but often perform at rates that are slower than expected. They get distracted, lose interest, or simply have a bad day. Automating your process leads to consistent line speed that is repeatable day after day. Machinery can often perform job functions at higher speeds than a person is capable of moving.
