Our method

For a reliable global food supply, the world depends on food, feed, aquafeed and pet food producers. We see it as our responsibility to do everything we can to provide them with the continuity and security they deserve. Our 200+ employees share the same drive: to become the most reliable organization in the world. That is why we keep everything in-house: sales, engineering, production, control, testing, delivery, service and the complete system integration. This makes us extremely flexible and allows us to switch quickly. We are not dependent on others, which is why others can count on us. In this way, we help manufacturers around the world with:

  • Optimizing, innovating and automating their complete production processes.
  • The best machines and systems for the process steps: product intake, transport, dosing, weighing, mixing, treating, coating, grinding, crushing, sifting and packaging.
  • Producing the best possible products.
  • Minimizing the consumption of energy and raw materials of production processes.
  • Preventing product loss and product recall due to damage and contamination.

Starting points of the cooperation

The quality of your product and process is our first priority. Our starting point is your specific challenge. In addition, we use the following goals for each project:

  • As much uptime and capacity as possible
  • The lowest possible total cost of ownership
  • As little consumption of energy and other raw materials as possible
  • As little equipment and materials as possible
  • Constructing as compactly and sustainably as possible, and minimizing transport.

In each project we work with fixed contact persons. This means that you always have a technical and a commercial point of contact. Other important principles are:

  • Everything in-house, from engineering and production to control and commissioning
  • Pre-testing with your product in our D-innocenter
  • Prior insight into KPIs on capacity, uptime, number of FTEs, cleanability
  • Traceability and documentation of all used components
  • Always a solution for every challenge

Our story: from 1948 to today

System integration

Dinnissen has over 70 years of experience in the system integration of production processes. As a system integrator, we take a holistic view of the production facility as a whole. Together, we look for the best possible implementation, set-up and system architecture. The goal: maximum output and efficiency and minimum downtime in the smallest possible space. We integrate all machines and systems for all process steps in one complete production line, in one system that is automated to the largest possible extent. From specification to service. From product intake to packaging. And from machines and systems to the complete control and automation. In order to be able to guarantee a well-functioning and robust production line, we keep everything from engineering to production and from control to commissioning in-house.

Every challenge is unique and requires a custom solution. However, our working method is the same for every project:

1. Your challenge, our starting point
2. Concept development for the best solution
3. Testing and innovation in the D-innocenter
4. Project management and automation
5. Engineering, production and in-house testing
6. Commissioning, service and SLA
7. Spare parts and maintenance

1. Your challenge, our starting point

How can we help you? Every project starts with getting to know your goals and your product and process. Only when we understand your situation, we start with an extensive inventory of your needs. Important here are the desired process steps, production quantities, available space, system integration, sustainability, ROI, total cost of ownership and delivery time. Thanks to our knowledge and practical experience, we quickly understand exactly what you are looking for. You provide the framework and together we will arrive at the best possible solution that fits within your existing systems. If we cannot offer the best solution for your challenge, we will admit that honestly. After all, we believe that simply wanting the best for all concerned is always the best strategy in the long run.

We like to sit down with all the experts as early as possible. Your experts and a team of Dinnissen experts consisting of technical consultants, account managers, project managers, and control and process experts. Together we look at which installations are best suited to your application. Then we'll think about how to optimally design the machines and systems, and how to organize your process lines in the best possible way. Together we create the ideal image and then also realize this. Throughout the process, we see every problem as a potential solution. And we don't stop until we have a solution that meets your - and our own - quality requirements.

2. Concept development for the best solution

As soon as we have mapped out the framework, concept development begins. Also in this phase, we work intensively with you as the client. Dinnissen experts from various disciplines work with you to develop the concept for the best possible solution. Then, together, we make a plan with drawings of the solutions and also of the optimal layout of your production facility. Including an explanation in the form of a complete P&ID and layout. With a functional design in 3D, it is immediately clear to your entire organization how the Dinnissen proposal will be integrated into your process. An essential part of this concept development is the art of leaving things out, which is structurally reflected in our approach: the fewer steps, the less equipment, materials, consumption, transport and costs are needed.

We find it important to involve our experts in the field of control and commissioning in the concept development from the beginning. In this way, we validate the practical feasibility of our concepts right away. We ensure that our concept works just as well in practice as it does in theory. And that means we dare to vouch for KPIs such as production capacity, uptime, energy consumption, number of operators/FTEs required and cleanability.

3. Testing and innovation in the D-innocenter

In the D-innocenter, our practice-oriented R&D and testing department, our engineers work on the further optimization of production processes. Our developed concepts are also tested here, so that customers can rest assured that they are using tried, tested and proven technology. In our quality laboratory, the properties of raw materials, auxiliary materials and semi-finished products can be tested beforehand. In the D-Innocenter you can, among other things:  

  • Perform analyses on the desired product properties
  • Test the production capacity of virtually all process steps
  • Validate product quality and homogeneity
  • Measure dust emission, perform baseline measurements, check for residue  
  • Check speed, capacity and/or breakage of conveyor systems

For almost every question you can find in the D-Innocenter a complete test set-up, which tests every practical situation and proves that the offered solution meets the specifications. This gives you the certainty that the solution realised is also immediately operational in your own production environment and can deliver the desired capacity. Our R&D department also offers you the possibilities to realize the highest possible product quality, homogeneity and safety. With consistent product end quality, you prevent product recall, claims and product liabilities.

Thanks to the unique combination of decades of cross-industry experience and process knowledge, and our in-house production and testing facilities, we succeed in creating the best solutions.

4. project management and automation

You will be guided by experienced Dinnissen project managers from the start to the finish of the project. This means you will always have a technical and a commercial point of contact, from the inventory and concept development phase, to the delivery, installation and commissioning of a fully tested production line. Throughout the entire process, our project managers are the lynchpin between you and the Dinnissen departments involved. The focus is entirely on a tight project turnaround time and maximum customer satisfaction.

Every day we are busy automating, innovating and optimising. This applies to the machines and process lines we create, but also to all our internal processes and systems. Each machine is better than the last and each employee is better today than yesterday. Automation is therefore a crucial part of every project. The Dinnissen automation and electrical departments have extensive experience in developing perfectly functioning machine and process controls. Thanks to the full integration between the engineering and automation departments, you are completely unburdened. Our electrical engineers develop the entire automation part in-house and guarantee optimal machine and process control in accordance with the ISA-88 standard.

We apply the strictest data security in our industry worldwide and are ISO 27001-certified for the entire organization. This ISO hallmark relates to information security and focuses on the availability, integrity and confidentiality of data. Your data is in safe hands at Dinnissen. This is guaranteed by external audits, 24/7 monitoring and certified data centres. In addition to ISO 27001, Dinnissen is also ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001 certified.

5. Engineering, production and in-house testing

In our engineering department, dozens of engineers work on further optimizing each component in the production process. Here, engineering teams create tailor-made innovative solutions for every challenge, together with our customers. Many of our best-known innovations originated from a specific customer request, after which they took entire industries to a higher level. Examples include our Pegasus® mixers, Hamex® hammer mills with automatic sieve changers and the revolutionary vacuum coating technology.

All solutions are designed project-independently; this allows us to cleverly reuse items. Once engineering has finished designing the machine, the drawing is transferred to a batch plot, which is Dinnissen's own development. The batch plot is used to check a package of drawings for current agreements and manufacturability before it is printed. It also communicates with the ERP production systems and automatically prints all the drawings and relevant documents. This has automated routine tasks for our engineers, giving them more time for things that add value for you, the customer.  

Our mechanical engineering is integrated with our electrical engineering. Data is delivered in such a way that electrical drawings, software for PLCs and documentation are generated largely automatically. Once our engineers have cleared their drawings for production, human intervention is no longer necessary.

Dinnissen has modern production facilities where activities such as laser cutting, bending, rolling, turning and milling are carried out in an almost fully automated manufacturing process. This enables us to deliver customized work, but also our time-to-market is much faster. Our welders and production staff have all the required (welding) certificates and are continuously trained by our internal instructors. Thanks to these in-house facilities we can switch quickly and produce flexibly. After we have functionally tested our solutions, your project is expertly installed by our assembly team. Anywhere in the world.

6. Testing and innovation in the D-innocenter

From developing the functional specification to training your operators, Dinnissen process engineers are involved in the entire process. Thanks to their many years of production and control experience within various sectors, they are highly skilled in getting your production line up and running quickly and properly. Because our process engineering experts are already involved in the concept development, we avoid surprises during commissioning. And if there are any challenges: our team stays until the entire installation is in production according to your wishes and specifications.

For us, service starts with creating the best solution. A solution that is built to be robust, durable and low-maintenance will require less service, repair and maintenance. In the development phase of each solution, we therefore pay close attention to hygiene, fault reduction, efficiency, ergonomics and many other individual customer requirements. Together, this generates a substantial list of points of attention that will be gone through before, during and after the production of your machines and systems. Because prevention is better - and cheaper - than cure.

Dinnissen has all disciplines in-house to respond quickly and adequately to all your questions, wishes and problems. And if there are problems, we solve them first and only then do we look for the cause. To ensure maximum uptime, we draw up a Dinnissen SLA (Service Level Agreement). This contains agreements about our service, entirely based on your wishes. In this way, we can protect you as much as possible against claims, breakdowns and other factors that threaten production.

7. Spare parts and maintenance

To keep your production operational continuously, Dinnissen works with maintenance plans and spare part inventories. Minimizing waiting times to get the right parts to the right destination is of substantial importance. It goes without saying that Dinnissen helps you reduce downtime of your machines and systems to a minimum. We use a special spare parts management system, where specific wear parts are in stock or can be sent quickly to the right destination.

However, even parts that are less sensitive to wear and tear can become damaged through misuse or external influences, which can bring production to a standstill. We like to think along with you, for example by keeping machine and wear parts in stock for you. Whatever or however you want it, it will be arranged for you immediately and laid down in a conclusive agreement.
