Rim Embossed Polyester Keys by MTI Form-X that Prevents Overly Preloaded Membrane Switch Keys
MTI Form-X has perfected the rim embossing process to ensure a flat, problem free, membrane switch key.
Most polyester film that is rim embossed will naturally concave (cup) unless steps are taken to prevent it. Cupped keys most often result in a sensitive switch response in non-tactile keys and tactile metal or polyester domed keys. Permanently closed switch contacts can also result.Membrane switch designers have a very difficult time eliminating the problems caused by concaved keys. By using MTI Form-X you will no longer have to adjust the spacer thickness or take other preventative measures to accommodate for this unwanted feature.Aesthetically a flat and crisp embossed key is much more appealing. This process does not add cost to the embossing tools or unit price
