Which type of tactile feedback dome works best in a higher heat environment?

Stainless Steel domes will out perform a polyester tactile dome in this situation.

Can you surface mount LEDS on my Membrane Switch?

Yes. We do it all the time!

Quantities required for prototypes and production?

5 to 10 parts or lot of fixed number of parts. Production quantities vary from 5 to thousands. Due to the digital age, from approval of artwork to final part, a label or graphic overlay with EL and or membrane switches will be produced very quickly. Basically termed Fast Turn.

We have all the latest design equipment and software to cater to your needs. It’s required that we receive final approval from you before production commences. Our CAD team has the ability to create from scratch.

Cost and delivery of prototypes?

The price depends upon the work involved and time to deliver. These parts are being produced without the need for tooling except for embossing tools.

Dome type, is tactile feel needed?

Both metal (stainless steel and gold plated) and poly domes offered. Tactile feel is customer’s preference.

Different types of termination we offer.

AMP, Berg, Nicomatic. Different centers and of course open contacts for ZIF application

What are typical metal dome sizes?

8MM, 10MM, 12MM, 14MM, 20MM

What is the actuation force of domes?

Dome force ranges from 85 grams to 700 grams

What is your "lead time"?

Because we manufacture custom products our “lead times” are dependant on volume and complexity of the project.  We make every effort to deliver your part the way you want it when you want it.

How robust is an EL lamp over a stainless steel dome incorporated in a membrane switch? 

We have tested our EL lamps up to 1,000,000 cycles without showing any degradation or failure
