Membrane Switches

Membrane Switches

Over 30 years, we have served custom membrane switches to wide range of industry verticals ranging from automobile to medical industry and waste recyling and disposal to dairy industry. We are experts in Membrane Switch manufacturing and offer application specific switches. If the application priority is hygiene, or the membrane switch is exposed to harsh working environments, we offer the most suitable switches for every industry.

 

Membrane switches are induced with various features to meet the expectations of application. Profile, domes and backlight illumination enhance the effectiveness of the membrane switch to give that impressively sophisticated and technologically advanced eye-catchy look. The size, design and color can be customized as desired. Membrane switches are layered, this allows freedom for product designers and engineers to design and implement a very precise customer experience.

What is a Membrane Switch made of?

The typical Membrane Switch is made up of a thin membrane layer of film. The film is usually constructed using Polyester material, however there exist many alternatives that are beneficial in the most extreme of environments.

The circuitry is prepared using various conductive inks. This process distinguishes the Membrane Switch from Copper etched Printed Circuit Board and other conventional electronics. The use of conductive inks offers a higher cost-effectiveness as well as a reduction in lead time and development process in comparison to its copper-etched counterpart. There are many different circuit actuation methods which can be incorporated in a Membrane Switch from non-tactile keys, metal domes for an audible and tactile response, polyester domes and capacitive alternatives. Other electronic components may be integrated in the Membrane Switch as well for more functional features. Low-profile LEDs, resistors and capacitors can be integrated into circuit to provide more advanced feedback options for the user.
