Through the investment in the latest digital technology Reid Industrial Graphic Products is able to provide low volume rapid prototypes of Membrane Keypads, Graphic Overlays and Labels. Rapid prototypes can be produced in as little as 3 - 5 business days (design dependant). Our prototyping service also includes short runs and variable data options.

Reid Industrial rapid prototypes are ideal for product modelling, product launches, photo-shoots, exhibitions and client meetings. Our prototyping service also includes short runs and includes labels with variable data.

Reid Industrial is a leading specialist manufacturer of Graphic Overlays, also known as Overlay Panels or Fascia Panels Whether you require basic printed information, imaginative patterns, visually enhancing bright metallic finishes, coatings to give scratch resistance or antimicrobial protection, here at Reid Industrial we have the technology and know how to manufacture your Graphic Overlay to the highest tolerences to Quality Standard AS/NZ ISO 9001:2015.

RFI Shielding for clear or tinted display windows or the entire control panel, can also be incorporated into the design.

We use a range of Vinyl, PVC, Polycarbonate and Polyester materials in gloss, semi-gloss, matt and textured finishes and have available high performance adhesives to meet varying application surfaces.

We are an authorised 3M Adhesives converter and the largest user of MacDermid Autotype films in the Southern Hemisphere.

Reid Industrial is a specialist leading Membrane Switch manufacturer, also known as Membrane Keypads, these are momentary switches with a user interface to control equipment and machines, and are generally a cost effective alternative for machanical switches. The top layer is typically the graphical interface, also known as a graphic overlay, which identifies the functions being controlled using icons or text.

To improve the user experience, a membrane switch can be designed to provide haptic or visual feedback. A great example of tactile feel is through the use of tactile metal domes or poly-dome construction, our thermal embossing process allows for precise embossing of various button designs. When this type of tactile feedback is used, a user will press a key or button and feel a ‘snap’ action as the dome is compressed. A selection of metal domes with varying actuation force are available, our US supplier specifies a life span of 5 million actuations.

We understand your needs, let us help you develop your next flexible Capacitive Sensor Project.

Recent Project:

Australia's largest Air Conditioner manufacturer, Actron Air, has successfully completed a project to rebrand and retrofit existing wall controllers, utilising our Flexible Capacitive Switch Technology.

*  Actron Air B75H Controller, installed at the Novotel Sydney Olympic Park, Homebush and other venues.

*  Easy one step upgrade to existing established wall controllers.

*  Hardcoated scatch resistant Gloss Acrylic incorporating SMD Led's.

*  Utilising Optically Clear Acrylic for crystal clear LCD display.


The Reid Industrial membrane QWERTY keyboard can be designed to your graphic requirements, and by using our range of 3M adhesives becomes a completely sealed solution able to be used in the harshest environments and meet your IP expectations. Utilising our extensive range of MacDermid Autotype hard coated polyester films. These films allow unlimited textures including Autotex AM (Antimicrobial) for those environments that require a germicide or Autotex Soft Touch for a silky smooth feel to your keyboard.

The Reid Industrial USB Keyboard Encoders are a simple plug and play device linked via a USB cable directly to your Windows PC environment.

The Reid Industrial USB Keyboard Encoder makes it easy to connect custom membrane QWERTY keypads to the USB keyboard port of a PC, by converting contact closures to Windows compatible PC USB keyboard codes.

We are a specialist leading manufacturer of backlighting technologies and have the process capability to integrate into devices such as membrane switches and capacitive sensors. We can also incorporate NVIS to enable night vision capabilities if required.

Electronic devices featuring brightly glowing keypads have achieved wide acceptance in the marketplace. This is primarily because of carefully engineered flexible electroluminescent (EL) lamps. These selectively backlit keypads reveal numbers, letters, and other characters to create a fresh and uniform look.

Light emitting diodes (LED’s) provide uneven light across a keypad, resulting in some characters being too bright while others were barely visible. New-product designers had been demanding thinner, whiter, and more-uniform illumination than other technology is able to provide.

Reid Industrial's Touchscreen Protectors are designed to safeguard your touchscreen interface from scratches and wear and tear. Made from durable anti-glare polyester, our touchscreen protectors can be fitted to any standard touchscreen terminal. The easy peel adhesive allows for hassle free replacement on the shop floor, which works exceptionally well when down time of the terminal is not permitted. You can purchase in bulk quantities for multiple terminals, or just have a spare on hand for when the unthinkable might occur. It’s always better, and usually cheaper, to have a damaged touchscreen protector, rather than a damaged touchscreen terminal.

Customised branding is a must for your touchscreen protector, ask us about design possibilities which can include coloured borders and corporate logo if required. As with our Graphic Overlays, printing is on the reverse side of the touchscreen protector, so the ink can’t be scratched off. Each touchscreen protector is specially designed to your exact specifications and can be embellished with tactile feedback embossing.

Industries we serve include all factory floor situations, medical equipment, computer peripherals, meat processing and the military and aerospace industries. Our touchscreen protectors are durable.
