Herringbone Parlor SwingOver

With the SwingOver EuroClass 800 milking parlor system, you get an innovative herringbone milking parlor that saves time and increases throughput without requiring a large investment.

With the SwingOver EuroClass 800 milking parlor system, GEA gives you a herringbone milking parlor that both increases throughput and decreases investment costs. As a Total Solutions provider, GEA has designed the system as an integrated solution. It consists of three components: the EuroClass 800 herringbone milking parlor, the innovative PosiSwing milking arm and an electronic milking control system. All of the components can be expanded and combined with one another as needed. This means that you can configure the SwingOver EuroClass 800 milking parlor system to meet your exact requirements.

The key feature of the EuroClass 800 herringbone milking parlor is its "1 for 2" principle with the PosiSwing milking arm

The key feature of the SwingOver EuroClass 800 milking parlor system is its "1 for 2" principle. This means that the milking arms, milking clusters and milking control devices are mounted above the milking pit, with each serving two milking stalls simultaneously. This means that the system alternates sides: While the cow on one side of the milking parlor is milked, you can let the next animal into the other side. At the flick of a wrist, the cluster can be swung over to the opposite milking stall. The many benefits of the SwingOver EuroClass 800 milking parlor system include:

  • Increased throughput and yield
  • Better ergonomics for the milker with shorter pathways, meaning the cow and the milking clusters can be reached easily
  • Short hose lines and low strength vacuums for better udder health and high milk quality
  • Low investment costs as the milking parlor components each serve two milking stalls
  • Milking starts automatically when the PosiSwing milking arm swings out.

SwingOver EuroClass 800 milking parlor system: better ergonomics, higher throughput and low investment costs

In the SwingOver EuroClass 800 milking parlor system, all of the milking parlor components can be found centrally above the milking pit. They are positioned to be right at your working height. So you save time as they are always nearby. The alternating process enables you to milk quickly and continuously, despite the low number of milking parlor components. The SwingOver EuroClass 800 milking parlor system optimizes your entire milking routine and increases efficiency with its intelligent design. As you only require a single milking control device and cluster for each stall, this milking parlor system is incredibly good value. You get an ergonomic and innovative herringbone milking parlor without having to make a huge investment. The system is available in different sizes to suit your needs and has space for from 2x4 to 2x32 animals.

For optimum control: the electronic milk management system from GEA

The modular design of our solutions means that all of the components in the herringbone milking parlor are completely compatible with one other. The electronics in the milking parlor assume control of the system, reducing your workload dramatically:

  • You can use the DemaTron or MetaTron milking control devices to control the entire milking process.
  • The gates can be opened and closed from any milking stall via the milking control device, meaning you no longer have to walk unnecessarily to the other gates.
  • The milking process beings automatically when the PosiSwing milking arm swings out, and is controlled using the milking control devices.
  • These are connected directly to the milking management system and provide you with important data to help you optimize your herd.

High milk quality and excellent udder health due to shorter hoses and gentle, low strength vacuum

The positioning of the milking parlor components in the herringbone milking parlor also helps to ensure that your milk is of high quality. The "1 for 2" principle shortens the length of the hoses and optimizes the milk flow. These short pathways also mean that a low strength vacuum can be used. This is gentler on the udder and helps to maintain better udder health. The innovative SwingOver EuroClass 800 milking parlor system combines multiple benefits into a single solution. It gives you low investment costs, high milk quality, high throughput and also saves you time.
