How does switch technology work in an epoxy keyboard?

Printed circuits are used in microswitch technologies as key carriers and components. They are associated with a support plate.

They are also used as a replacement for traditional screen-printed polyester circuits, thus serving as both circuits and supports. There are the keys and the LEDs. Possibility of adding threaded rod type inserts to guarantee and facilitate the integration of the products.

How does screen printing protect the printing on the fronts of your keyboards?

All of our categories of keyboards can be printed with color images or illustrations (four-color screen printing).

Screen printing is a technique of printing from the back of the front face. Therefore, we do not get any loss of color over time due to friction and use of keyboards since the color is on the back layer. The lifespan of the image printing is therefore almost infinite.
