Silicone Keypad Manufacturers and Suppliers
TOGOHK silicone keypad manufacturer, which is widely used in a wide range of applications. We custom-design silicone keypads with different properties for medical, military, communication, instruments, and industrial machinery.
What is Silicone Rubber Keypads
Silicone keypads are manufactured by the compression molding way, to create angled webbing around a switching center.
On depression of the switch, the webbing uniformly deforms to produce a tactile response. When pressure is removed from the switch, the webbing returns to its neutral position with positive feedback.
To make an electronic switch, a carbon or pill is placed on the base of the switching center which contacts a printed circuit board when the web has been deformed to have the conductive signal.
It is possible to vary the tactile response and travel of a key by changing the webbing design and/or the shore hardness of the silicone material.
Tactile forces can be as high as 500g depending on key sizes and shapes.
The snap ratio of a keypad determines the tactile feel experienced by the user…
In designing the good feeling of the silicone keypads, the main factor is the silicone material, thickness design, and all rich experience.
TOGOHK is able to achieve a variety of customized silicone keypads for customers.
Custom Silicone Rubber Keypad
We can provide you with customized silicone keypad solutions according to your requirements for silicone buttons. We have experience in different silicone keypad processes, such as light transmission, printing, carbon particles, two-color, etc.
The carbon pill silicone button is a conductive silicone keypad. Carbon pill switch buttons are more durable than conductive ink-printed keyboards.
Multi-color silicone keypads are also called multi-color button, it includes multi-color silicone keypad in one silicone rubber button.
Epoxy coating can be applied to conductive silicone keypads, giving the silicone keyboard a hard-cover plastic feel. This method can be an alternative to using plastic keyboards to produce custom silicone keypads.
Laser silicone keypads use a special laser marking system to laser out the desired pattern to achieve the effect of light transmission.
Customize the printing pattern of the silicone keypads, according to your different numbers to print the pattern on the keyboard, you can also screen printing the color symbols or icons on the silicone buttons.
We are a silicone push button manufacturer, producing custom silicone push buttons according to your drawings or samples.
We are a silicone button cover manufacturer, we make a lot of rubber button covers and silicone keyboards. Welcome your inquiry!
Rubber push buttons, also known as silicone button, rubber electronic button, is made of silicone compression molding.
TOGOHK design and manufacture silicone button pads, rubber buttons, silicone button, and rubber push button for electronic switches.
KEYPAD PRESSURE REFERENCE
The pressing force is 50-80g, used for computer keyboards, and calculator keypads, suitable for silicone keys that need to be clicked frequently.
The pressing force is 80-120g, which is used for: a home appliance keypad, remote control buttons, suitable pressing force, and good resilience.
The pressing force is 120-180g, used for audio equipment, industrial equipment, and mechanical remote control, and suitable for relatively large silicone keypads.
The pressing force is more than 180g-500g. This kind of silicone keypad is used less and is suitable for special industries, such as medical treatment, aviation, etc.
THE DESIGN DRAWING - 1
Preparation for the design drawing: manufacturing the silicone keypads according to the customer’s silicone sample or keypad design drawing, firstly test the sample, secondly run to the production after confirming the samples.
SILICONE MATERIAL - 2
Preparation for the silicone material: Evaluate the customer’s requirements, determine the hardness of silicone material according to the structure of the keypad, meanwhile prepare the contact pill and suction tool.
SILICONE VULCANIZATION MOLDING - 3
Silicone vulcanization molding: types with the manual flat vulcanizing machine, automatic flat vulcanizing machine and vacuum vulcanizing machine included, mold has up and down block mold, up mold opened after compressed, filling the silicone material and black contact pill to the down block mold, pressing them by the high temperature and molding machine.
MATTERS NEEDING ATTENTION - 4
The key factors are the mold temperature, pressure, and vulcanization molding time during the molding process.
SECONDARY VULCANIZATION - 5
Secondary vulcanization for silicone keypads: after high temperature molded of silicone keypads, whether if undergo the secondary vulcanization process is depending on the customer’s requirements, the purpose is to remove the residual and improve the performance of the silicone keypads.
SURFACE TREATMENT - 6
Surface treatment for the silicone keypads: oil coating, UV treatment, silk screen printing, laser, epoxy, customized based on customer’s different requirements on treatment.
DEBURRING - 7
Deburring for silicone keypads is usually a manual and die stamping method to do it, but however, many silicone keypads are complicated due to the deburring by stamping way, which requires many manual operations, thus increasing the manufacturing cost for silicone keypads.
INSPECTION QUALITY CONTROL - 8
Inspection quality control for silicone keypads:
Inspecting the quality of the silicone keypads including their size, elasticity, hardness, color, material, or unqualified, to remove the defective one.
Inspecting the surface quality of the silicone keypads including no shadow, printing overflow, blurred logo text, bad resistance, and inconspicuous light transmission.
Quality inspection for the silicone keypads including its full printing, stamping and the whole packing process to check out the good one to be packed.
How to Make a Silicone Rubber Keypad ?
how to make a silicone rubber keypad: Carbon-impregnated silicone pills are the most frequently used contact with silicone rubber keypads. The silicone in the conductive pill allows enables it to securely co-mold with the keypad. Gum stock silicone rubber is placed directly on the tool.
Silicone Rubber Buttons Design & Manufacturing Process of Silicone Button
silicone buttons add conductive carbon particles, black conductive carbon particles, to achieve electrical conductivity. Commonly used in remote controls, computer keyboards, POS, and home appliances.
TOGOHK assists customers to complete 100+ cases. We are very familiar with the manufacturing process of carbon particle keypads. If you have any needs, you can contact us.
