Domino D-Series tests huge success for Adelholzner Alpenquellen

Get in touch

Nestled at the feet of the Bavarian Alps, stands a humble mountain spring water factory. If you didn't think anything of it, you might think that this was a standard spring water company. It's the furthest thing from it. Instead, Adelholzner Alpenquellen has been bottling and distributing mountain spring water for almost a century, but its age isn't the only thing that sets Adelholzner Alpenquelle apart.

Wholly owned by the Sisters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul religious order, the plant currently operates seven modern production lines and is capable of filling 240,000 bottles of water an hour. In fact, Adelholzner Alpenquelle stands as the largest mineral spring in Bavaria. 

With a focus on innovation, the company had made big investments in new machinery, but felt hampered by the poor quality of the laser printers they were using. Turning to Domino Amjet for help, the two companies began working together in 1998, developing printing solutions for Adelhozner’s wide range of labels and bottle types. When Domino announced the imminent launch of their innovative D-Series line of CO2 laser printers, the company was keen to get involved.

Adelhozner worked closely with Domino in their print labs, creating labels that tested the D-Series printers for quality and speed across different materials. They were particularly interested in testing how the lasers performed on the metallic labels they needed to apply, as well as seeing how the machines could reduce maintenance expenses, save costs and increase overall efficiency of their plants.

Over the course of the test phase, the D-Series CO2 Laser units outshone Adelhozner’s expectations. Better still, the new laser printers could be installed directly into their existing production lines, reducing installation costs and giving them maximum flexibility to move units around as required.

“The test results created in the sample laboratory at the Domino laser competence centre convinced us of the performance capacity of the i-Tech generation of lasers, especially the D620i laser coder...”
