Press increases capacity at Mekoprint

Aalborg-based Mekoprint Mechanics has ordered a new press line from AP&T. The new line, the company’s third from AP&T, will not only increase production capacity, but also enable the manufacturing of large metal components.

“Following a period of great fluctuation in demand for our products, we’re now seeing a strong recovery from many customers,” says Karsten Møller, technology and product manager at Mekoprint Mechanics. “To increase capacity and strengthen our competitiveness, we’re making a substantial investment in new buildings and machines, of which, the new AP&T production line is an important part.”

Mekoprint Mechanics manufactures cabinets, chassis parts, front panels and other metal components for a large number of companies in different industries. For installation in the autumn, the new line includes a press with 500 ton of press force, a 1900 x 1600 mm press table and a SpeedFeeder for unloading. The order also includes two years of complete service and maintenance.

Just over three years ago, the company installed a similar line, which saw the addition of another press in 2019. But AP&T has an even earlier history of delivering equipment to Mekoprint.

“We’ve been collaborating with AP&T for decades and we’re thoroughly confident in their ability to deliver technology that meets our needs for reliability, flexibility and productivity,” says Møller. “Having access to quick, local service is also highly beneficial to us.”

Peter Karlsson, key account and area sales manager at AP&T, adds: “It’s great that Mekoprint is now strongly investing in the future and that we at AP&T are part of their expansion journey.”
