Ergonomically production of curd blocks by automatic draining and pre-pressing curd. When the process in the cheese vat is finished, the mix of curd and whey is fed to the drainage table via gravity or curd pump. Through the perforated walls in the drainage table, the whey can flow away leaving curds.
To further separate whey and curd, the curd bed is automatically pre-pressed to the desired height. After pre-pressing, the automatic system will cut the block to the desired size and deliver it to the operator at working height via the elevator.
