Exact Weight String Cheese Machine

The patented Exact Weight String Cheese Machine (EWS) is a precision system consisting of a cooker, extruding machine, and forming head. Machined to a tolerance of .003”, the EWS produces dimensionally precise string cheese with less than 0.5 gram deviation per 28 gram piece, resulting in a tremendous yield savings over traditional methods of string cheese production.

Precision That Can Save You Millions

Traditional extruding and cutting results in up to 22% overfill – meaning companies that produce at least 1,500 lbs. of string cheese each hour are continuously wasting product and packaging. In contrast, the EWS’s cavity-filling method results in variations less than 0.5 grams from your target weight.
