A Single Source – Electronics through the Membrane Overlay
ALMAX began as an engineering consulting firm specializing the design of electronic interface components. Many of our customers then, as well as today, are graphic overlay printers that purchase our electronics so they can print and apply the final graphic overlay.
However, our OEM and EMS customers began to demand a streamlined supply chain both for cost reduction and tighter quality control. We responded by purchasing graphic overlay printing equipment and adding graphic designers to our staff. Now our visual art team partners with our engineering teams to design complete electronic interfaces – electronics plus the graphic overlay – that look and function beautifully.

ALMAX EIS is a full-service membrane switch manufacturer so you can source your membrane switch from the switch design through the prototype and on to volume production. We have long history of membrane switch innovation.
Why ALMAX for Your Membrane Overlay
We are membrane switch experts and have helped our valued re-seller customers design and print membrane overlays that work in conjunction with the underlying membrane switch electronics. Sourcing your entire membrane switch with ALMAX means you gain direct access to our electrical engineers who work in conjunction with our visual staff to ensure every membrane overlay we produce functions as beautifully as it looks.
Material selection support for your membrane overlay may reduce your costs while increasing your product reliability. Our engineers have developed propriety membrane switch technologies which can be integrated with your membrane overlay.
We have designed many custom membrane overlays for specialized use cases including aerospace, medical and light industrial applications. And we are known for our ability to solve our customers’ product challenges, achieving balance between membrane switch cost and desired performance by either creating proprietary technologies or through the innovative use of existing membrane switch technologies.
