Simplicity & flexibility at its best.
Through the investment in the latest digital technology Reid Industrial Graphic Products are 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). Reid Industrial rapid prototypes are ideal for product modelling, product launches, photo-shoots, exhibitions and client meetings.
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 will make your ideas come to life.
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.
Membrane switches, also known as membrane panels or keypads, are electrical switches with a user interface to control equipment and machines. 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, membrane switches typically provide haptic or visual feedback. A great example of haptic feedback is through the use of tactile metal domes or poly-dome construction. When this type of feedback is used, a user will press a key or button and feel a ‘snap’ action as the dome is compressed.
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.
