WHAT THE CUSTOMER NEEDED?
The Danish welding machine manufacturer Migatronic holds the position as one of Europe's leading development, production, sales and service providers of complete solutions for welding.
Cooperation with Mekoprint covers the supply of graphic overlays for a number of welding machines in Migatronic's wide product range. The graphic overlays are produced in sturdy foils which are printed, embossed, punched and laminated – and supplied with an adhesive, so that by delivery they are ready for mounting on Migatronic’s welding machines.
WHICH SOLUTION WAS CHOSEN?
A typical Migatronic welding machine has a recognizable front in gray, black and green as the dominant colours. The graphic overlay is made of a transparent foil which has been screen printed, punched and embossed. The front of a Migatronic Sigma welding machine may look very simple at a first glance, but itconsists of six layers of silk-screen printing. The push buttons are embossed into the foil - and are of course free from the adhesive that secures the graphic overlay of the welding machine.
Migatronic welding machines have one or more display windows for reading the data about the welding machine setting. These display windows are supplied with Windotex which gives them a glossy surface.
WHAT WERE THE BENEFITS?
"Migatronic is a well-established manufacturer with many years of know-how which has purchased quality raw materials and parts of all kinds throughout the years. With the choice of Mekoprint as the exclusive supplier of graphic overlays, Migatronic ensures first-class quality and at the same time a uniform graphical expression. Of course, Migatronic will also obtain lower prices through the synergy of reusing punching and embossing tools. Another reason for our cooperation is naturally also Mekoprint’s desire and ability to understand the Migatronic thinking and they advise us on what is feasible both technologically and in terms of production".
