With the development of technology, more and more electronic components are beginning to appear in people's lives and membrane switches are a typical example. Membrane switches are a combination of key switches, panels, markings. The membrane switch is a new type of electronic component that integrates optical, mechanical and electrical components together with the symbol display and liner sealing. However, many people do not know how to use membrane switches correctly. This article will provide a brief analysis of the maintenance and use of membrane switches by introducing basic information about membrane switches.

Why are membrane switches popular?


Membrane switches are the product of a new era of technology, with their ease of operation and good tactile feel. To be more specific, it can be said that it is the product of the need to develop electronic products into miniaturised, digital, intelligent and multifunctional products. Today's membrane switches are widely used in medical instruments, computer control, CNC machine tools, electronic scales, post and telecommunications, photocopiers, refrigerators, microwave ovens and other industries.


How to use membrane switches correctly?


Check the environment of use

Firstly, check the environment in which the membrane switch is to be used. If the environment is dusty, the surface to be laminated needs to be cleaned and the surface to be laminated needs to be flat, rust-free and oil-free.



After checking the environment, the lamination process is carried out. The membrane switch is then placed in the appropriate position and a portion of it is laminated, then the remaining centrifugal paper is slowly removed. It is important to note that the overlay should not exceed 15 degrees in order to reach the corresponding position.


In short, when using a membrane switch, the first thing to do is to check the surrounding environment. A membrane switch is a switch made with a conductive paste printed contact circuit on a flexible polycarbonate or mylar membrane, a type of contact switch, and a harsh environment can easily affect its use. In addition, membrane switches can be personalised according to the user's design conception, reflecting personalisation in the design of the colour pattern, and reflecting the comprehensive characteristics of material beauty, decoration and process beauty in the decorative effect. Therefore, membrane switches are highly customisable. If you have any ideas, please feel free to practice with us.


The design requirements of overlay


The basic design requirements of an overlay are based on its reliability, which can be influenced by a number of factors. In addition to the material of the functional ink, the reliability of the membrane switch and the circuit is also closely related to the correctness and reasonableness of the circuit design in the production process, as well as to the stencil production and printing methods, because a careful process and a good brand of material will result in a good quality overlay.


Membrane switches are a product of social and technological development. When using membrane switches, we need to pay attention to some things to avoid its service life being affected.
