Fast on-site testing
After the investment in a new printer was announced, the Herbsthäuser Brewery set out to find a successor model. "It was important to us above all to provide reliable and fast service and a consistently high-quality printimage,"explains Markus Lutz, the technical director of the brewery. In a trade journal he became aware of Allen Coding, the worlds premium manufacturer and distributor of specialist marking and coding systems located nearby Würzburg and contacted them. A printer was installed for testing the next day.
Best print result in high-speed printing
It turned out that the high-speed of the label and the offset between printing and application of the label required some adjustments. With the Hitachi UX-D 150W high-speed printer in combination with a clocksliding register, a suitable solution was quickly found, which is now successfully in use since the beginning of 2019.
Markus Lutz is very satisfied with the printer and service of Allen Coding. "Our old printer kept printing misprints with missingn characters or smeared prints. Since we have used the Hitachi, the prints of the best-before date and the lot number have always been excellent."
Permanent monitoring and control of printer functions ensure consistently high print quality. the printer withstands the hard conditions in the production hall with temperature fluctuations and high humidity with its IP65 proofed and robust stainless steel housing.
Fast service and low running costs
With the advice and service of Allen Coding, Mr. Lutz is very satisfied. "The service staff are quickly reachable and are at our side with advice and guidance, because we cannot allow ourselves a standstill in the bottling plant."
Last but not least, the significantly lower consumption of solvents compared to the previous model is inspiring. "Thanks to the economical Hitachi printer, our costs for consumables are halved and the service costs at Allen Coding are lower," Markus Lutz is pleased.
Allen Coding meets the requirements
For Herbsthäuser Brewery, three factors were decisive in the selection of a new label printer:
Fast service availability. High reliability with consistently high-qualitym print result. Lower costs for consumables and service.
"Allen Coding meets these requirements to our full satisfaction," confirms Markus Lutz in conclusion.
