They are manufactured using compression molded silicone rubber and found in applications within industrial machinery, instrumentation, Consumer goods, and Automotive markets. The properties of Silicone rubber help create an excellent switch response. Pressure applied to the key deforms an angled webbing around the switch with a defined “click” response. Once removed, the web returns to its original position.
Custom Elastomeric Keymats
The tactile response can be tuned, dependent on the intended user profile. Elastomeric Keymats 3D form can be customised to integrate into a products overall design. Careful design can create a sealed switching interface with wide operating temperatures making them ideal for more rugged environments. We offer a range of keymat finishes including epoxy/plastic key tops and can advise on methods of illuminating keys using integrated LEDs.
By utilising our Product Managers both in the UK and the Far East, we can communicate designs efficiently with our manufacturing partners, to ensure we meet customer design time-frames and delivery schedules. Use the enquiry form below to request further information
