At the Edewecht site, the new packaging line
for grated cheese works with a High-speed
Continuous-Inkjet-Printer from Hitachi.
DMK Group
As Germany’s largest dairy cooperative, the DMK Group
makes milk into foods of the highest quality with around
7,700 employees at more than 20 sites in Germany and the
Netherlands. The product assortment ranges from cheese,
fresh dairy products and ingredients, baby food, ice cream
and health products, to special animal feeds. MILRAM and
Humana are brands that enjoy the full confidence of
consumers at home and abroad and make the company
an established name, both in its home markets and selected
target markets around the globe. As the fourth-largest supplier
to Germany’s grocery retailers and with a turnover of 5.8 billion
euros, the DMK Group is also one of the leaders of the
European dairy industry.
CHALLENGE
The Edewecht site, with nearly 600 employees and 20
apprentices, processes annually around 1.2 Million litres
of milk. This corresponds to filling 50,000 tanker trucks.
The production program includes whey products, whey
concentrates, whey powder, cut cheese and butter. Also
located at the site is fabrication that produces 50,000 tons
of butter and 117,000 tons of cheese which are then
processed into slices, pieces and flakes.
In 2017, the planning of a new grated cheese line was started.
Since September 2018, it has been producing around 100
bags of grated cheese per minute.
Because the reliability of Hitachi inkjet printers for product
coding have been valued at the Edewecht plant for many
years, they have turned to Allen Coding as the official dealer
in equipping their new line.

SUMMARY
The DMK Group
has a new
packaging line for
their grated cheese.
They needed a printer,
which can print 100 bags of
grated cheese per minute.
DMK has decided for Hitachi
Inkjet printers with a small
nozzle size, which was able to
meet the specific requirements
of the new production line
SOLUTION
„Only a Hitachi printer was eligible for the marking in the new
line, as we have only had good experiences with these so far,“
says Herr Matthias Säfken, Team Leader Maintenance at the
plant in Edewecht.
The specific application requirement was the quick withdrawal
of the film in the packaging machine. At Edewecht, tests had
highlighted that instead of a standard printer a Hitachi UX High
Speed Model had to be used. The UX-D, which is now in use,
with a special 55 μm nozzle, prints up to 3,173 characters per
second and this means that there are still reserves for an in-
crease in production.
Thanks to its stainless-steel enclosures with spray water
protection (IP65 protection class) the printer can be cleaned
with steam emitters and industrial cleaning agents, which
meets the hygiene requirements of the dairy industry.
“Only a Hitachi printer was
eligible for the marking in the new line. “
Matthias Säfken, Team Leader Maintenance
RESULTS
The ease of use of the Hitachi printers via the coloured touch
display facilitates the operators entering the shelf life date
(MHD) and batch number.
The accidental spillage when filling with ink and solvent were
prevented by the new bottle system. The long interval between
maintenance speak volumes for the Hitachi models.
Overall, Edewecht is completely satisfied with Hitachi‘s printers
and Allen Coding‘s service.
