FLEXIBLE MEMBRANE SWITCHES & RIGID MEMBRANE SWITCH PANELS
FLEXIBLE MEMBRANE SWITCHES
Our team is comprised of talent from industry-leading companies and we specializes in solving complex problems for the medical, industrial, and consumer goods industries.
WHAT IS A MEMBRANE SWITCH PANEL?
The difference between flexible Membrane switches and a rigid membrane switch panel is that a membrane switch is flexible and a panel is not. Both are electronic input devices made up of multiple layers bonded together using pressure sensitive adhesives to create a completely sealed and ultra-thin profile. Usually including a graphic overlay or a rubber keypad as the top layer. Having multi-layered construction creates endless options for appearance and function.
By adding die cutting to the process, engineers can achieve nearly any shape making membrane switch panels a perfect solution across multiple industries.

Top Circuit Layer
Lower Circuit Layer
Optional Rigid Support Panel
Using metal snap domes or hydro-formed tactile domes in membrane switches, we can obtain nearly any tactile response desired. The ultimate benefit of using a snap domes for tactile feedback is the overall package thickness remaining low-profile, while still providing a mechanical response.
Benefits of tactile membrane switch panels
Customizable Tactile Feedback
Completely Sealed Surface
Easy to Clean & Sterilize
Antimicrobial Graphic Overlay Options
Custom Tail/Connector Routing
Completely Customizable Graphics
In addition to the thin design and easy to incorporate nature of membrane switches— they also have numerous design options to make your product user interface more functional and more beautiful. Some of the design features that make membrane switches a popular user interface solution are:
Customizable Graphic Overlays
Multiple Tactile Response Options
Fiber Optic Backlighting
Embedded LEDs & Components
EMF/RFI shielding Layers
Customizable Tail/Connector Shape/Path
Standard Connector Options
