Capabilities
   Product       
   Your choices are...         
   Overlay       Text or graphics are printed on a membrane as well as any cutouts for controls or connectors. The membrane, which is now the overlay, is secured on top of the device. 
   Front Panel       Front panels have markings or graphics as well as cutouts for controls or connectors, which is meant to be part of an enclosure. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Printing / Marking       
   Your choices are...         
   Digital Printing       Digital printing refers to the production of printed media, text, graphics, or hardcopies from digital media. 
   Engraving       Rotary engraving uses carbide tools, either in a fixed or rotating position. These tools travel along vectors and can be used with a variety of materials. Rotary engraving is used to polish the surface of a material (burnishing), or to displace or remove the material altogether (diamond drag and deep cutting). In general, rotary engraving produces deeper cuts and longer-lasting work pieces than laser engraving. 
   Embossing / Debossing       Embossing impresses a raised design onto a material and then applies ink or foil to the raised area. There are two basic embossing techniques: blind and foil. Blind embossing does not apply colors. In other words, the embossed design is the same color as the surrounding material. Foil embossing heats the material and then embosses the image over heat-resistant ink. Debossing is the opposite of embossing. With debossing, the imprinted design causes depressions in the material.   
   Etching / Scribing       Scribing or etching is performed through the use a diamond or tungsten-carbide point to scribe text into a material through surface removal. 
   Flexographic Printing       Flexography is a rotary-press printing technology that uses water-based inks. Flexographic printers are often used to print on plastic, paper, or cardboard. 
   Hot Stamping       Hot stamping is a dry printing process that prevents the penetration of light. Hot stamping is used strictly with flat surfaces. A heating press stamps the image through a metallic fold, which burns the image on top of the surface. 
   Laser Marking / Laser Engraving       Laser marking and laser engraving are performed by a computer-controlled laser beam. It is used to discolor the surface of a component or to engrave it by vaporizing the material. The laser can be positioned and controlled very accurately, allowing for a variety of effects to be achieved. Laser marking is well-suited for barcodes or 2D matrix codes, patent information, and company logos. It can be performed on a variety of materials, including stainless steel, plastics, and ceramics. 
   Offset Printing       Offset printing uses a rubber cylinder to transfer an inked image from a printing plate to paper or other media. 
   Pad Printing       Pad printing or transfer pad printing is used with products of odd shapes, sizes, or materials. The image is transferred from one surface (a silicon pad) to another (the workpiece).  
   Screen Printing / Silk Screening       Screen-printing stores ink in a screen made of silk or another mesh material. A squeegee forces the ink through the screen and onto the workpiece. Screen printing produces high-quality images, but is not suitable for products with odd shapes. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary capabilities. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Surface Effects       
   Your choices are...         
   Dead Front Graphics       Dead front graphics are embedded in graphic overlays and panel and are only visible when illuminated. 
   Encapsulating / Doming       Doming or encapsulating the surface of the graphic overlay or panel enhances the wear resistance of the finished product. 
   Hard Coating       Hard coating applies or forms a hard surface layer in order to provide a high hardness or abrasion resistance relative to the substrate, or compared to other similar coatings or finishes. Hard coating applies or forms a hard surface layer in order to provide a high hardness or abrasion resistance relative to the substrate, or compared to other similar coatings or finishes. 
   Laminating       Laminating is the joining two or more layers of foams, films, paper, or foil using pressure-sensitive adhesive products 
   Sub-Surface Printing       Sub-surface printing allows the production of an overlay or panel where protective surfaces are required to extend the life of the product. 
   Selective Texturing       Texturing such as pebbling, knurling, ridges or other texturing for aesthetic or operator tactile identification purposes 
   Thermoforming Inserts       Thermoforming is a process that covers labels or plates with a molded plastic sheet or similar material. During the forming operation, the label is inseparably bonded to the thermoformed part. 
   Transparent / Tinted Windows       Transparent or tinted windows are used to view displays and lights that are embedded in the panel. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary surface effects.

   Your choices are...         
   Digital Imaging       Digital images are electronic snapshots taken from documents such as photographs, manuscripts, printed texts, and artwork. The digital image is sampled and mapped as a grid pixel. Each pixel is assigned a value, which is represented in binary code (zeros and ones). The binary code is then interpreted and read by the computer to produce an analog version for display or printing. 
   Graphic Design       Services include graphical design and layout of company or product logos and decoration. 
   Just-In-Time (JIT) Delivery       Supplier has just-in-time manufacturing capability of labels and plates in order to reduce need for inventory maintenance. 
   Kitting       Kitting packages contain associated products put together. For example, a serial number plate, and certification label, and the product logo for a product are packaged together for easy assembly. 
   Low Volume Production       Suppliers provide low-volume production. 
   High Volume Production       Suppliers provide high-volume production. 
   Prototype Services       Suppliers can build a small quantity of representative parts for use in presentations and functional testing. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary service.
