Discover Smaller Footprint Production Lines (For Custom Block & Barrel Handling)

Need to reduce the size of your blocks & barrels, without sacrificing all of your floor space?  KOSS Sanitary, Custom Grinders can help with that.  Other lines can be bulky, involving multiple steps and machines…KOSS Grinders can extrude barrels, directly into cookers or onto conveyors if desired.

Sick of harping?

Sick of harping on the same old issues when cutting your cheese barrels?  Cutting barrels can pose an enormous safety risk.  All of those moving parts can be an accident waiting to happen, and securing the area surrounding cutting machinery takes up a significant amount of space.  Instead of cutting product to reduce size, try a KOSS Grinder, or view some of our equipment tests in our Green Bay, WI manufacturing plant.  We’ve tested a variety of cheeses, in Grinders ranging from lab- to production-sized.  View some of our videos in the playlist below.  Can you see your product in a KOSS Custom Grinder?

Free up floor space!

Koss Industrial, Inc. believes your space is valuable, so why waste it?  Our production lines are custom designed to suit your space – whether you have limited floor space, or a height restriction, KOSS will find a way if there’s one to be found.

Sized to suit you, the biggest constraint on time for KOSS Grinders is load (feed) time…the standard “speed problem” is that our machines grind faster than they can be loaded.

Strong & sanitary, innovation is the name of our game – call us at 1.800.844.6261 and find out more about the Custom Grinder KOSS would recommend for your application!
