Cheese / Dairy

Robotic Dairy Handling Machinery, Robotic Top Load Case Packers & Palletizing Systems

Quest specializes in manufacturing automation equipment for the dairy industry. With robotic automation solutions for cheese and dairy producers, these systems ensure that products are packaged according to safety standards and regulations.

Primary packaging for dairy requires precision and great attention to detail. The Quest Quik Pick QP100 primary food handling solution provides an automated system that can load, orientate, stack, and group products into a variety of primary packaging machines. The QP100 series is designed to grip hard-to-handle cheese and dairy items with care so that the product isn’t damaged. Quest also offers the QF100 Quik Fill Primary Tray Loader for the produce industry which is designed to automate the filling of compartment trays. This system allows an operator to personalize tray filling patterns for each specific product, whether it’s fruits, vegetables, nuts, cheeses, protein, or snack foods. This is all completed in a USDA and USDA Dairy compliant environment that adheres to safety and sanitary standards.

Quest also offers automated secondary packaging solutions for the dairy industry. This starts with the Quik Pack QP200 top load robotic case packer. The QP200 series is a robotic top load case packer optimized for cheese and dairy products in flexible packaging. Designed to identify, locate, and track incoming beverage products on the conveyor, the QP200 eliminates the need for changeover and infeed systems. The QP200 features a compact footprint and is versatile to accommodate a wide range of products, especially cheese/dairy. QPack Casepacking Software, which comes standard with every QP200, is a dynamic casepacking software allowing cheese manufacturers to create customized pack pattern variations as well as new pack patterns. This software is easy to use, saving time and money.

Once the case is packed, the Quest Box Bot QB300 series robotic palletizer automates the palletizing process. These palletizing solutions are available in stainless steel washdown-rated designs, perfect for environments exposed to sanitary chemicals. This is perfect for dairy and endless other industries. Eliminating the dull, repetitive task of stacking boxes from your labor requirements adds value and offers a strong return on investment.

When it comes to food manufacturing, Quest’s robotic packaging solutions add precision, customizability, and speed throughout the packaging process.
