What Cheeses can the HSP9000 pierce?

The HSP9000 is our industry leading piercing solution for the blue cheese industry. Utilising second-generation full servo drive systems, the HSP9000 (High Speed Piercer) provides cheese manufacturers with an authentic production method with the efficiency of modern technology.

Piercing cheese is the most common way to develop the mould needed for blue cheese production. This method is used with the following popular blue cheeses.


English Stilton is made in the East Midlands, popular in pies and soups, including steak and Stilton pie.

Italian Gorgonzola is made in Lombardy and is used in Gorgonzola Cream Sauce and is known for its distinct aroma.


Danish Danablu has a sharp taste that pairs well with fruit and honey.


German Cambozola is made in Allgäu and used in recipes such as Cambozola Strudel.


Polish Rokpol originates in Lower Silesia and is similar to Danish Danablu.
