The caves store up to 140.000 cheese wheels. Ripening can take up to 18 months and includes weekly treatment with saltwater solution. The resistant drum motors from Interroll play their role in the automated conveying process.
"The environment here is extremely demanding and has a fairly high ammonia component. We therefore need very reliable machines for safe care of our Gruyère, machines with a high performance capacity in view of the number of cheeses we handle. For instance some of our cheese finishing machines process up to 2000 cheeses an hour," says Pierre-Ivan Guyot, Director Fromco SA, Moudon "The drum Motor is exceptionally robust and reliable. It is precisely the motor we need for our application."
