What are the applications of film panels?

Film panels, including membrane switches and membrane panels, are gaining popularity as a new type of electronic complete product operating system worldwide. These panels integrate both decoration and functionality, making them versatile and useful in various industries.

Film panels have found extensive applications in intelligent electronic measuring instruments, medical equipment controlled by computers, CNC machine tools, electronic weighing instruments, post and telecommunications devices, copiers, refrigerators, microwave ovens, electric fans, washing machines, electronic game machines, and other industrial and household appliances.

The membrane switch, in particular, offers numerous advantages that contribute to its increasing use across different fields. These advantages include friction resistance, waterproof capabilities, dustproof features, resistance to harmful gases, long service life, and stable performance. These qualities make the membrane switch an ideal choice for a wide range of applications.

When comparing PVC film boards and PET film boards, it is important to consider their respective performance characteristics. Both materials offer advantages in different areas. For instance, PVC film boards provide strong processing adaptability, allowing for the application of different textures on their surfaces to enhance their appearance. On the other hand, PET film boards offer their own set of benefits, such as improved durability and resistance to wear and tear.

In conclusion, film panels, such as membrane switches and membrane panels, have become essential components in various industries due to their versatile nature and numerous advantages. Whether it is PVC or PET film boards, these panels offer unique features that cater to different needs.

②Chemical resistance: Dilute acid, weak base, alcohol, alcohol ether. In addition, PC film has the characteristics of high dielectric strength, non-directionality, high brightness, and low fogging degree.

③High temperature resistance (within the temperature range of -30℃~℃) When the temperature or temperature changes suddenly, the PC film does not change much. ④Good mechanical properties, PC film has high impact resistance and high elasticity, and its yield point force is about the plastic application with the strongest impact resistance today: PC film is suitable for various signage film panels and other occasions, and the price is moderate, it is the most Commonly used materials.

PET (polyester) film

Advantages: PET film has good on-off key life, excellent corrosion resistance and wear resistance, and excellent insulation performance.

Disadvantages: The price is slightly higher than the PC panel, and it is not UV resistant.

Application: Instrumentation and home appliance panels with higher requirements.

let’s go to the workshops to see how the products are made!

Design: First,the product concept takes shape in the R&D department,where LuPhi’s engineers design and create initial samples.

Membrane Keyboard,Membrane Switch,Membrane Keypad,Touchscreen Panel, silicone rubber keyboard,silicone rubber keypad, Capacitive Switches

before mass production,their PP samples will undergo various function and environmental testing, such as button actuation life testing,high-low temperature constant temperature,and humidity testing,as well as salt-spray & waterproof testing,ink adhesion force testing,click ratio test, and many others.

01 KEY PROCESS OF PRODUCTION

Once the pre-production samples pass all necessary testing and materials arrive at the factory,production begins.LuPhi uses high-quality imported materials, such as 3M adhesive,Autotex polyester,nikomatic connectors, and many other components.

Material Cutting:

Membrane Keyboard,Membrane Switch,Membrane Keypad,Touchscreen Panel, silicone rubber keyboard,silicone rubber keypad, Capacitive Switches

The first step of production starts from raw material cutting- where overlay films,circuit films and adhesive layers are cut by automatic cutting machines with high accuracy.

After that,the cut materials are transferred to a silk screen printing workshop,where first the ink is prepared to match the exact color requirements of the customer, and silkscreens are created for printing.

Silkscreen Printing:

Drying:

Following the printing,semi-finished products,are further passed to a baking treatment in a 12-meter drying tunnel until the ink is completely dried and cured, LuPhi also has 4 drying ovens to increase efficiency at this step.
