R3 Rotary milking parlour with external milking


The Rotary milking parlour R3 is the jewel of TDM parlours, the first and only rotary entirely “Made in Italy”. Conceived to combine a heavy-duty structure, made to milk 24 hours a day, with a simple, clean and elegant design. The platform of our rotary, designed and installed by TDM in every single component, is realized in short time through a modular bolted structure. Then the concrete base is poured on this structure. The cage is composed by vertical inox cabinet for the housing of removal cylinder, the milk meter keyboard and the openable inox plate for washing system. The rotation mechanism on wheels made of Teflon is managed by oleo dynamic motors. The platform is inclined towards the inside of the central hole but the water does not fall inside the rotary but it is recovered and carried externally through an appropriate gathering system. The rear milking is supported by a dedicated positioning arm, designed specifically for the TDM rotary.

Available both in galvanized iron and stainless steel, our rotary milking parlour is characterized by the care of details and the attention dedicated to every aspect of the installation. The rotary is certainly the system which allows the farmer to reach the best performances in terms of cow/milking hour but, to make this happen, it is essential to let the rotary works continuously and that the animals enter and exit from the parlour in maximum calmness and naturalness.

Very important to obtain the best result, more in this parlour model than in the others, is the presence of the backing gate which allows the loading of animals in groups, one after another, in order to keep the rotary active by a constant flow of animals.

The Automatic Teat Spraying Robot is a system that automatically disinfects the udders with a spray product before the animals exit the rotary. An arm is controlled by a piston and positioned under the cow’s udders, a special sensor starts spraying the disinfectant when the cow is no longer attached to the milking unit. The arm is flexible and this ensures that it cannot neither break nor cause damage in case of contact with the animal or with components of the rotary. This system is also applicable to the pre-dipping phase and involves big savings in terms of labor.


With the innovative AD 4.0 system, the farmer has the ability to keep his farm under control thanks to a single touch panel on which to set different parameters for both the milking parlor and the refrigeration and ventilation system.

For example, it is possible to adjust the milking vacuum values, all the settings for washing the system and the tank, as well as the temperatures and pressures of the refrigeration units in real time, setting the desired parameters and receiving automatic alerts in case of anomalies.

Control is also possible remotely with a simple internet connection.
