Products & Services

  • Lactalign

    Lactalign is a retrofit cluster support, which has been designed and engineered to support the weight of a milking cluster evenly under the cow, providing equal weight and vacuum across all four quarters of the cow’s udder. Its simplicity and effectiveness to prevent mastitis has been recognised to win a Gold Innovation Award at LAMMA 2023 and a Highly Commended at The Cream Awards 2022.​ Manufactured from durable HDPE (high-density polyurethane) hygienic plastic. Lactalign cluster supports can be easily installed in most milking parlours, including rotary, herringbone and rapid exit parlours. How does Lactalign work? Lactalign works by supporting the weight of each cluster’s pipes, which in turn supports the weight of the cluster, preventing the weight of the pipes unbalancing the cluster.​ An individual Lactalign cluster support is secured to the parlour above each cluster’s pipes, Once the cluster has been fitted to the cow’s udder, the Lactalign support is swung into place by the milker, providing three positions to support the clusters pipes. The milker simply selects which position to mount the pipes, depending on the height of the cluster. The ACR cord should then be located below the pipes (or the same notch if positioning the pipes in the bottom notch). Once milking is complete the ACR engages, releasing the cluster. The retracting ACR cord and the clever weight distribution of the Lactalign cluster support combine, ensuring the Lactalign automatically swings back out of the way. ​
