Membrane Keypads, also called membrane switches and metal dome keypads, are a rugged, reliable, and cost-effective alternative to discrete mechanical switches and controls.  By combining the aesthetic qualities of graphic overlays (link here) with the added functionality of flexible momentary switches and arrays, membrane keypads have become an integral component to many electronic products. 

 

Membrane Keypads are thin and flexible, and integrate many design features into a single, inexpensive part.  Graphic overlay, display and LED windows, low-voltage switches and illuminated LEDs can all be combined into a single component.  Additionally, membrane keypads provide a waterproof barrier that is chemical resistant and can be used to protect display screens and seal enclosures. Metal domes and polydomes can be added to provide tactile feedback, making your product user-friendly and easy to use.

 

NEXTECH uses both digital printing and traditional screen printing to offer our clients the best membrane keypad solution.  Based on your design requirements and annual volume, we will quote the best method to meet your needs. 

 

Most orders ship in 3-4 weeks, and we can deliver laser-cut prototypes in 7 days.  Pricing starts at $600, depending on the number required, size, and complexity of the design.
