Production of foil based control elements
Laser technology on the march

The use of flat control and information panels has become standard across a range of industries throughout the world. Thanks to the modern industrial design and compact construction, they meet the ideal requirements for a cost-effective solution in many areas of application. Thus, membrane keyboards are used for high-tech equipment in medical engineering, mobile phones, electrical household appliances, electric teller machines, remote controls and many industrial machines.

The demand for quality and reliability in respect of the keyboard elements is high, and continues to increase. Keyboards must be permanently usable under a particular set of conditions and must overcome external influences such as humidity or soiling. Flexibility combined with ease of cleaning and a high level of resilience are decisive criteria, which it pays to meet.

This creates ever increasing demands on manufacturers and the processing industry. The extensive range of products and ever shorter delivery times mean that calls for simpler production methods are getting louder all the time.

This is where laser cutting comes into its own:
- No chipping of material as can happen in punching.
- Requires no knife cleaning, no adhesion of individual parts
- No humidity as in water jet cutting
- Sealed cutting edges
