Silicone keypad is made of translucent elastomer silicone material by compression mold tooling,which is widely used in industrial electronic products, medical products, consumer products as reliable switch performance.
Silicone keypad web/wall thickness and uniformity, key travel, and silicone materials hardness which mainly determine keypad actuation force and also known as tactile feeling.
High or low actuation force keypad, which can’t determine elastomer keypad’s tactile feeling. Making good tactile feeling keypads should care about the global keypad designs, and also keytop hardness, keypad wall uniformity, keypad travel, tooling EDM process etc.
Offer 2D, 3D design (PDF, CAD, STEP, IGS, slprt. ) drawings, or samples; Inform legend number and how many colors. If it needs silicone light guide; With or without carbon pills; Keypads surface demands: Laser Etched, Silkscreen, Spray Coating, UV Coating etc.; Buying quantity. These are the primary elements for a basic quotation. Other details such as travel, force, durometer and tactile response can be decided later; Other features such as protective coatings, laser etching, light pipes, etc. will eventually determine the price.
