OVERLAYS AND FRONT FOILS IN POLYCARBONATE WITH ACTUATORS


Overlays (Front Foils) manufactured in Polyester or Polycarbonate are usually the Front Panel of the device that we want to control. Normally, devices receive input orders through switches or keys. Switches can be operated directly or by pressing the keys on the Overlay.

When switches are operated directly, the design of the overlay is adapted including a hole for the switch. From other hand, when the switches are actuated by pressing keys in Polyester or Polycarbonate Overlays, the pressure is transmitted directly on the switch.

The gap between the keys and the switches is an issue we commonly face as a Polyester or Polycarbonate Overlay manufacturer. There is no problem when this gap is small or there is no gap. The keys in the Overlay work normally and tactile effect is not affected.

However if this gap exists and is big, then major problems will occur. Polyester or Polycarbonate Overlays are deformed more than usual during keys operation, the tactile effect is completely different than expected and damages in the Overlay will appear after some use.

Crespo has solved this problem many times. It is not necessary to change the switches or the hosing of the device. We can adapt Polyester or Polycarbonate Overlays eliminating the gap between keys and switches. Your device will keep the tactile effect originally expected and the Front Panel manufactured in Polyester or Polycarbonate will maintain its original features while operation for a long time.

Each device is different, contact us and we will assist you to find the best solution for your project!
