What is a Membrane Switch Manufacturer?

A membrane switch manufacturer like us at AGE Nameplate is a company that specializes in the design, development, and production of membrane switches. A membrane switch is a type of switch that uses a flexible membrane to make electrical connections. It typically consists of a top layer (the graphic overlay), a middle layer (the circuit layer), and a bottom layer (the adhesive layer). When the graphic overlay is pressed, it makes contact with the circuit layer, completing the electrical circuit and activating the switch. These types of switches are widely used in various applications, such as industrial control, medical equipment, security systems, and consumer electronics. They are known for their durability, reliability, and ease of use. We offer a wide range of services, including but not limited to custom design, printing, material options, assembly, testing, and many more. We only offer the highest level of service that you can expect from a membrane switch producer.

Our Membrane Switch Manufacturing Services

Custom Design

AGE Nameplate offers membrane switch custom design services to design and develop a switch that meets the specific needs and requirements of our customers. This involves working closely with the customer to understand your needs, developing a concept for the switch, creating a prototype, testing the switch to ensure it functions properly, and making revisions as necessary. The end goal is to produce a custom-designed switch that meets your needs and expectations and is suitable for your specific application. This also includes various options such as different materials, sizes, shapes, and graphics, different types of actuations and feedback, and different types of lighting to fit your product design.

Printing

We also offer membrane switch printing services, to print the graphic overlays for the switches. The graphic overlay is the top layer of the membrane switch, and it is typically printed with the design of the switch, including text, graphics, and any other visual elements. The printing process is an important step in the production of membrane switches as it ensures that the switches are visually appealing and easy to read. We also use different printing methods to produce graphic overlays, such as screen printing, digital printing, and offset printing.

Material Options

You can rest assured that AGE Nameplate provides a variety of material options for you to choose from when creating your membrane switches. We use polyester because it is a strong, durable, and flexible material that is often used as the base material for the circuit layer of membrane switches. It is also used as the material for the graphic overlay, which is the top layer of the switch. Other materials we use include:

  • Polycarbonate is a clear, impact-resistant material that is often used as the material for the overlay of membrane switches. It is often used in applications where the switch needs to be backlit.
  • Rubber is a flexible and durable material that is often used as the material for the tactile membrane switch. This type of switch is activated by pressing down on it, and rubber is a good choice for this type of application.
  • Adhesives are used to hold the various components of the switch together. We offer a variety of adhesive options, such as pressure-sensitive, heat-activated, and UV-cured adhesives.
  • Metal dome is a popular choice for the tactile switch. It is a small metal piece that is placed on top of the circuit layer and acts as a mechanical contact.

Assembly and Testing

We provide comprehensive membrane switch assembly and testing services. These services assemble and ensure they meet our customer’s specifications and function properly. We will test the switch to ensure that it functions properly and performs as expected. This may include testing the switch’s electrical properties, such as resistance and conductivity, as well as its mechanical properties, such as button feel and travel.

Moreover, we test the switch to ensure that it can withstand the conditions it will be exposed to in its intended application, such as temperature and humidity. Age Nameplate also tests the switch to ensure that it meets any relevant industry regulations and standards, such as those related to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and hazardous materials. Our membrane switch assembly and testing services are an important step in the production of membrane switches. We make sure that the switches are assembled correctly, perform as expected, and will last in the intended environment.

Technical Support

AGE Nameplate provides assistance to our customers who need help installing, configuring, or troubleshooting their membrane switches. This may include providing instructions or diagrams, answering questions, or providing remote assistance via phone or online chat. Furthermore, we provide support for customers who are covered under warranty, such as repairing or replacing a switch that is covered under warranty. If necessary, we will also provide assistance to customers who need to customize or modify their membrane switches to fit their specific needs and requirements.
