Silicone Rubber Keypads Manufacturing Process
This is what we do when it comes to making custom silicone rubber keypads:
Rubber Keypad Design
The first thing to make a silicone rubber keypad is to confirm the design. Our design department can assist with the design if needed.
Making The Tool
Once the keypad design has been confirmed, we should use CNC milling machines and electrical discharge machines to fabricate the tool.
Mixing and Matching Colors
Colored silicone rubber is manually placed on the base mat. Keyboard bases will be formed from silicone, the keys will retain their specific color.
Compression molding is the process of creating products through the placement and heating of pre-cured silicone rubber.
Laser Etching/Silkscreen Printing
Depending on the effect, we can choose screen printing or laser etching to meet your requirements.
Testing and Packaging
We test our products every step of the way during production, then pack and ship them to you after they’ve passed quality checks.
Estimated Manufacturing and Shipping Time
The process of importing silicone rubber keypads from China is quick and painless. The added benefit? You get them at an affordable price!
You can also place rush orders for your urgent need. Rush order delivery is currently estimated at 7-15 days from design to arrival, but we will do everything possible within this time frame!
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some answers to some common questions regarding silicone rubber keypads. Nevertheless, every order is a little different, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
What is your minimum order quantity for silicone rubber keypads?
We will gladly manufacture from 1 up to millions of parts regardless of how many you need. When you have 100 pieces or less, we recommend choosing prototype tooling since they are approximately 1/4 the price of production tooling. Going this route can reduce setup costs, but you will have to create production tooling if your design is successful and a larger quantity is needed. Designing a prototype aims to create a new design that will probably need to be revised later.
What's the normal travel distance of a button on a silicone keypad?
Suppose the silicone is provided with the actuation force (or webbing), and then the travel should be 0.04 to 0.05 in. If a metal dome provides actuation force, travel should be 0.00″ to 0.01″.
How do I get a quote for my custom silicone rubber keypads?
Just send us an inquiry. Tell us what type of silicone rubber keypads and the materials you need. And send us your 2D/3D design with an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will quote you shortly.
What hardness (or shore) should I use for my silicone rubber keypad?
It depends on how the actuation force is applied. Typically, we recommend 50-55 shore A if no metal dome is under the button. The 60 shore A setting would be recommended if there is a metal dome under the button. We have a variety of shore A ratings available for your reference. You can find out which one is right for you by feeling the different keys on our engineering sample silicone keypad! Request samples now!
