Advantages Of Our Silicone Rubber Keypads

Low-Cost Silicone Keypad Manufacturer

A rubber keypad is the best solution for applications that require low production cost and responsive switching solutions.

Excellent For Demanding Environments

Rubber keypads are also an excellent solution for demanding environments.

Weather Resistant Printed Silicone Keypads

Rubber keypads provide an interface that is virtually weather resistant. These keypads are not easily affected by moisture, dust, vibration, and shock, so they can be used in the harshest environments.

High Electrical Resistance

Additionally, printed silicone keypads offer high electrical resistance so are often used to increase worker safety in challenging environments.

Custom Silicone Keypad Manufacturer For Your Needs

Ruggedization is not at the expense of your company’s brand identity as the rubber can be screen printed to your specifications. No matter how complex your custom silicone keypad requirements might be, ALMAX can review and then manufacture your design, as a world-class silicone keypad manufacturer.

How We Design Our Silicone Rubber Keypads

Rubber keypads are compression-molded rubber actuators with or without a conductor at the bottom of each key.  A flexible printed circuit board, or PCB, provides the circuitry traces while the rubber keypad acts as the overlay and shorting pad.

Our Silicone Rubber Keypad Prototype

Silicone rubber keypad prototypes can be challenging due to the molds that may be required.

Choose Your Silicone Keypad Prototype

Understanding our customer’s needs to purchase low-volume silicone rubber keypad prototypes at reasonable prices, we developed some standard rubber keypad constructions to reduce manufacturing cycle times and costs.  Of course, we are also happy to build a completely custom silicone keypad prototype to your color, shape, and lighting specifications.

Advantages Of Using Our Rubber Keypad Prototype Services

Our rubber keypad prototype experience gives you manufacturing acumen, cost sensitivity, and technical innovation so your rubber keypad prototype will ramp into a viable production product. Contact our engineering team for value engineering services, a review of your rubber keypad design or to explore how our design team in combination with our rubber keypad prototype capabilities can help you get a better product to market faster.

Carbon Tactile Keys Silicone Rubber Keypads

Tactile rubber keypads offer an alternative look and feel to more common polyester or polycarbonate switch overlays.  They are compression-molded silicone rubber actuators with or without a conductor on the bottom of each key.  A flexible PCB provides the circuitry traces while the silicone rubber keypad acts as the overlay and the shorting pad.

Our Capabilities As A Tactile Custom Keypad Manufacturer

As tactile silicone rubber keypad manufacturers, our capabilities include:

  • Domestic and off-shore rubber keypad prototypes
  • Order size flexibility from one piece to 1000+
  • Fully custom complete silicone rubber keypad assemblies
  • Carbon impregnated silicone
  • Conductive contacts to create conductive rubber keypads
  • Gold plated rigid PCB
  • Gold plated copper flex PCB
  • Carbon coated silver flex PCB
  • Screen printing
  • Laser etching
  • Rubber keypad backlighting
  • Engineering support to realize your switch technology

ALMAX is a full-service custom rubber keypad manufacturer so you can source your keypad from the PCB through the final overlay.
