What the customer needed?
Rittal GmbH & Co. KG is part of the German Friedholm Loh Group and is the world’s leading system supplier solutions for modular and energy-efficient data centres, innovative security concepts, and physical data and system backups for IT infrastructures.
They turned to Mekoprint to have a visually appealing multiple color overlay for a high-end electrical rack designed and produced. The front had to be partly transparent and self-adhesive for easy mounting.
Which solution was chosen?
To match its high-end design a glossy polycarbonate was chosen which is suitable for both screen and digital printing and which gives an exclusive look to the front of the monitor.
The Rittal logo is multi-colored for which reason the best solution was to digitally print it on the foil. The text on the front had to have a metallic look for which reason it was screenprinted.
After going through the two printing processes an adhesive was mounted on the back of the foil and subsequently die cut.
What were the benefits?
“The multi-colored Rittal logo comon the front of the rack is a challenge to print in high resolution and in the quality that we require.
Mekoprint’s digital printer is however able to print all colors of the logo in one process eliminating displacement and creating a result that matches the exclusive look of the rack. Should the logo have been printed by means of screen print, it would have required 6-8 screens, making it too costly”.
