For over 67 years Bovie Printing And Fabrication has been a leading manufacturer of Membrane Switches, a product widely used in appliance, medical, and the electronics industry. Membrane Switches offer an economical alternative to mechanical switches because they allow for graphic overlay design, and can facilitate brand marking. A typical Membrane Switch is constructed in the following layers:

  1. The graphic overlay layer is a polyester or polycarbonate film, printed on the second surface with a switch location, and copy required. The display of the buttons can be flat or embossed, with led windows, which add functionality.
  2. Top circuit layer contains shorting pads which close the electrical circuit when depressed through a spacer layer.
  3. Spacer layers act as a circular spring separating the two circuits. The function of the spacer is to allow room inside the switch for the tactile domes to rest without being subjected to partial compression by the layers around the domes.
  4. The bottom circuit layer has both poles, and the switch array, and the tail which connects to the printed circuit board.
  5. Adhesive layers allow the switch to be permanently mounted onto a smooth surface.

Steel rule Dies are used to cut the final shape of a decal or overlay. They can be manufactured in any shape to match the features required by the customer in the finished part. When used, the Die cuts like a cookie cutter; it is forced, under pressure through the material to produce the desired shape.
The Dies are made by laser cutting a design into a piece of birch plywood, then sharp blades are inserted into those cuts. The die is then put in a die press and the parts are cut out to their final shape.

The correct colors on an overlay are one of the most important parts of the job, and that is where we use color chip proofing to match a customer’s specific color needs. When the customer requires an exact color, it is important that it is matched thoroughly to their design, on the same material that will be used in production.
