"What's the point of organically produced cheese if it's not packaged in environmentally friendly ways?" Frederik Hohnstedt, owner of the Siebenhäuser Dairy, and his plant manager Christian Preuß have asked themselves this question very often in recent months and have been searching intensively for a solution. They finally found it at Topac in Gütersloh. Together with the specialist for print products and carton packaging and the machine supplier Ribbeck, the innovative dairy from Rehden in Lower Saxony has set up a pilot project in the dairy industry and developed sustainable carton-based packaging for Siebenhäuser's various cheese specialties.

Labelling of controllers and hydraulic pumps with hinged paint protection label
If components with an individual marking are painted, the marking must be protected from the paint so that it is legible again after the painting process.

The company InLine Hydraulik GmbH relies on exactly this solution for the marking of controllers and hydraulic pumps in the painting process.
