As of now, Dinnissen Process Technology can track and trace the base material of every part, plate and bolt of all its machines and systems. This includes all associated material certificates. The Dutch system integrator invested in complete traceability so that its customers can safely produce food and other products.
For Dinnissen, product quality and safety are the most important aspects in production. To ensure that these two criteria are met, Dinnissen applies full tracking and tracing in the production process. This makes it possible to trace exactly which base material was used for each component. In this way, Dinnissen has complete insight into the origin and quality of all materials used in its production processes. This helps Dinnissen’s customers produce food of the highest quality and safety.
In this video, Dinnissen shares an impression of how full traceability is achieved:
For transparent food production processes
Especially in the food industry, manufacturers must adhere to strict guidelines. For example, they must be able to justify which base materials have been used for product-contact surfaces in its production processes. As stipulated in European legislation, the origin of those specific materials must also be traceable. By applying strict tracking and tracing measures during the production of all components, Dinnissen can trace exactly which component was made from which base material. This includes all corresponding certificates.
How full traceability works
To make parts easily traceable, all parts are given a QR code after processing. By scanning the code on a specific part, the material certificates can be retrieved. In the near future, Dinnissen plans to add all kinds of other relevant data, such as the technical drawings of each part. Other plans include reordering spare parts by scanning specific QR codes and retrieving detailed information about parts via tablet or smartphone in the event of a fault. In this way, Dinnissen is constantly striving to make the entire production process smarter, more efficient and more sustainable.
