ALMAX is a custom membrane switch manufacturer with a full line of custom membrane switches and custom membrane keypads from the membrane switch electronics to the membrane switch graphic overlay. Our membrane switch company began as an engineering consulting firm and has grown to own three ISO-certified manufacturing plants. OEMs and membrane switch re-sellers trust our engineering and manufacturing teams to support their custom membrane switch from concept design through volume manufacturing.
Membrane switch innovation has fueled ALMAX’s growth into a leader in the manufacture of custom membrane switches. Our engineers have developed proprietary membrane switch technologies including:
- Membrane switch back-lighting
- Sealed membrane switches
- Capacitive-like actuation
- Glove actuation membrane switches
- Metal-like membrane keypad finishes
- Networked membrane switches
We help companies build custom membrane switches that look and work beautifully.
ALMAX provides the following membrane switch ordering services:
- US membrane switch prototypes in as little as 24 hours
- Off-shore membrane switch prototypes in as little as 5 days
- No minimum order value (MOV)
- Most quotes returned in 24 hours or less
- Single-source supplier to transition from prototype to volume production
- US-based engineering support
- Customer service (8 am – 5 pm PST)
Our membrane switch experience includes three manufacturing sites, membrane switch design engineers and cost engineering to help you build a high quality, high functioning custom membrane switch. Our custom membrane switch applications include medical membrane switches, industrial membrane switches and high-end consumer membrane switches. Our engineering and sales staff can help you select the correct technology that meets your membrane switch performance and price requirements.
Contact our engineering team for value engineering services, a review of your membrane switch design or to explore how our design team in combination with our membrane switch prototype capabilities can help you get you a better product to market faster.
ALMAX began as an engineering consulting company founded by two engineers well know in the electronic switch industry. Solving human interface problems was the core business, but with many issues surrounding how membrane switches were manufactured, the founders realized that true membrane switch innovation required control over the membrane switch manufacturing process.
Ten years ago, they purchased their first manufacturing facility, becoming a membrane keypad manufacturer, and have grown to own three sites: one domestic membrane prototype facility and two off-shore membrane switch manufacturing plants with prototypes to volume capability.
If you want membrane switch electronics without the graphic overlay – ALMAX can do that. If you want a complex membrane switch including a the graphic overlay – ALMAX can do that too.
ALMAX supplies custom membrane switches in volume to global OEMs, single piece prototypes to VC seeking start-ups and high-quality membrane switch electronics to membrane switch graphic overlay printers and other re-sellers. Because of our product depth and manufacturing control we can often produce custom membrane switches at prices like an off-the-shelf membrane switch. Purchasing teams save time because our sales team delivers responsive service from quotation through shipment.
Unless you enjoy online commodity catalogs, purchasing your membrane switch from ALMAX may be the easiest way to meet your project goals.
Our responsive sales team will quote most membrane switch products within 24 hours and our North American engineering support can help with your membrane switch design or provide manufacturing cost assessments.
From a simple membrane switch to a full box-build, ALMAX has the membrane switch manufacturing breadth you need to increase your membrane switch quality while reducing your membrane switch pricing.
