Krohne Group is a world-leading manufacturer of industrial process instrumentation and automation for industries such as oil & gas, water & wastewater, chemical & petrochemical, power, food & beverage, minerals & mining and marine.
Mekoprint supplies industrial printed scales for a range of flowmeters for measuring liquids, gases and steam for industrial applications.
Krohne was in a situation where they needed industrial scales, which had to be punched out in materials according to their own wishes. The scales had to be printed using a screen printing technology so that data could be read quickly on the front page.

Sales Project Manager, Mekoprint A/S
To ensure flexibility in Krohne’s production, the scales are produced on frame order, that is, Mekoprint always produces and maintains a minimum of both glossy and finished screen printed scales ready for delivery when the need arises.
For the production of the scales, Mekoprint uses high-volume punching in customer-specific tools that produce multiple elements of the scale at the same time.
This ensures a faster production time and a lower cost for Krohne.
Logo, text on the industrial scales is printed after stamping with the screen printing technology.
As a total supplier of industrial scales, Mekoprint always produces with a focus on quality, therefore the tolerances are of course as needed to ensure a reliable and easy reading of the data.
The customer says
To us precision in printing the scale was crucial and Mekoprint’s more than 60 years of experience in screen printing was a major factor for us trusting them with the scales. Also the flexibility in stock keeping and our agreement as to contact orders are pluses in our cooperation”.
