Milking Parlor AutoTandem

Individualized, gentle milking with higher throughput: With the AutoTandem milking parlor, GEA meets the highest requirements of both cow comfort and efficiency.

Tandem milking parlor AutoTandem from GEA’s DairyParlor line for smaller herds

Every cow is different. The most animal-friendly way to milk them is to always take an individualized approach. So GEA has developed the AutoTandem milking parlor, a solution which combines a stress-free milking process with a high degree of automation. You can use it to milk small herds in individual boxes – fully automatically and much more efficiently than in group milking parlors.

For individualized milking: the AutoTandem milking parlor from GEA

The AutoTandem milking parlor is completely different from other milking parlors. Its range of benefits are particularly suitable for small herds:

  • Individual boxes give you an ideal view of the cow and makes the process stress-free.
  • Each cow is milked individually and on its own – this increases throughput by up to 30 % per milking stall.
  • The MultiLine control panel produces minimum noise emissions and protects the sensitive milking parlor components.
  • The cow boxes can be arranged flexibly – suitable for all buildings.
  • You can choose from a range of modern milking parlor components: Milking control units, milking arms and pulsators

Individualized milking: good milk quality and higher throughput per milking stall

The AutoTandem milking parlor from GEA focuses on an innovative concept: animal-friendly and individualized milking with a high degree of automation. This is possible due to the unique design of the milking parlor.

  • It consists of multiple boxes with sufficient space to keep even the largest animals comfortable.
  • The boxes are mounted parallel to the milking pit, giving you a clear view of the animal.
  • This also make it easier to attach the milking clusters.
  • Each of the boxes works independently of the others.

This means that each of your cows is milked individually. The AutoTandem is therefore suitable for cows that take longer to milk. The key feature: Despite this individualized milking process, the throughput per milking stall can be increased by up to 30 %. Individualized milking also increases the quality of the milk as there is no group pressure and the animals can be milked calmly.

Flexible layout for your milking parlor

The AutoTandem milking parlor can be installed in your dairy regardless of the amount of space available. You can arrange the milking boxes however you like. You could create an L or U-shaped milking parlor, or a single-sided milking parlor with the milking pit on either the left or the right. This substantially reduces your investment costs as you no longer need to make structural changes. GEA is more than happy to help you design the right layout for your situation.

The latest technology for your milking parlor: Milking control devices, herd management and pulsators

As an agricultural systems provider, GEA can provide you with a range of innovative solutions for your dairy. Your AutoTandem milking parlor can be fitted with a variety of milking parlor components. All of the products integrate seamlessly into the milking parlor. We particularly recommend the DeMax and MetaTron milking control devices for the AutoTandem milking parlor, which send important data directly into the herd management software. This is the first step towards the future of precision livestock farming. The StimuPuls Apex pulsator helps to ensure that the cows are milked as gently as possible. It enables the udder to be completely and gently stripped and can also be combined with the PosiLactor or PosiCare milking arms to further relieve the strain on the udder.

The milking cluster is the point where the machinery attaches to the cow. On the one hand, the milking process should be as efficient as possible, but on the other, it shouldn't damage the cow's sensitive udder. The Classic 300 and 300 E milking clusters fulfil both of these requirements and provide a range of important benefits.

Milking Cluster Positioning

Milking Cluster Positioning

To ensure that the milking process is both fast and comfortable, the milking cluster must be positioned perfectly under the udder. Otherwise it can be very uncomfortable for the cow. Get it right every time by fitting your milking parlor with a professional milking cluster positioning system. These products help to ensure that the weight of the milking cluster is distributed evenly across the udder. This accelerates the milking process, giving you higher throughput and yields for your dairy, as well as happier cows. As an agricultural systems provider, we are proud to offer you a range of cleverly designed solutions for milking cluster positioning, specially developed for your milking parlor.

The majority of this strain can be relieved by designing the milking stalls in an ergonomic way. Which is why GEA offers the EGO lifting floor for group milking parlors and indoor and outdoor rotary milking parlors. You can use it to adjust your working height and position in the milking parlor to suit the cow and reduce the physical strain of the work substantially.
