Our story

Founded in 1963

The company initially specialized in wood products for cheese manufacturers (e.g. shelving, packaging).

In the 1970s

AVRILLON moved towards producing specialized machinery in stainless steel with its first investment in computer-aided design (CAD) and the opening of a design department.

In 1980

The company combined stainless steel machinery with automation to become a leading player in the automation of repetitive tasks for cheese manufacturers.

Late 1990s

The company diversified to provide solutions to the surface treatment industry, in particular for anodizing aluminium.

Today

We provide specialized machinery for mechanization and robotization to cheese manufacturers and for surface treatment.
We also offer a range of standard equipment for cheese manufacturers.

Expertise

Cheese making

Our areas of operation start with cheese demoulding and stop at packaging.

Between these two stages, we can supply machinery or complete production lines that enable you to:

  • Stack/unstack, transport, turn and generally handle cheese racks, stacks, pallets, storage racks, draining mats, baskets, bottom plates, aging boards etc.
  • Condition cheeses, demould, turn, detach them, wash, salt/brine, cover with plastic wrap, scrub etc.
  • Clean equipment: single or stacked cheese racks, pallets, palbox containers, aging boards.
  • Make workstations more ergonomic.

 

Surface treatment

From initial study to deployment of your installation, the AVRILLON team gives you the benefit of its experience to best meet your needs and improve productivity.

  • We can automate and/or robotize the processes of part assembly/disassembly.
  • Our solutions cover the areas of automated production lines, the integration of vision-guided robots, mechanized parts assembly, material handling (automated or manual hoists), heating chambers, and washers.
