Have you ever operated heavy equipment, worked in an assembly line, or used sensors and other related technologies? If you have, then you’ve probably seen and touched the printed graphic surface on the internal electronics of a product or tool. That surface is called a graphic overlay. Graphic overlays protect the sensitive components and materials of an electronic instrument or machine from wear and tear and elements like dust, rain, and snow. If your company needs graphic overlays, here’s why you need to get in contact with Reid Print Technologies.
Building Printed Electronics Since 1990
If you need graphic overlays and other forms of printed electronics, turn to the experts at Reid Print Technologies. The company was established in 1990 in Clontarf, Queensland and has been producing graphic overlays, flexible printed sensors, membrane keypads, wearable, stretchable electronics, and more for manufacturing and industrial applications.
The company puts themselves in their client’s shoes, aligning their aims with their customer’s objectives. They use collaboration to unlock the full potential of their business. Today, they supply a wide assortment of flexible printed electronics and advanced Human Machine Interface (HMI) products to industries and markets in Australia and beyond.
Enhancement Possibilities in Overlay Panels
At Reid Print Technologies, they have enhancement options for graphic overlays for panels and other types of printed electronics. The overlay panels they produce are used across various industries, including power management, aerospace, automotive, medical, hospitality, air conditioning, construction, manufacturing, and defence.
For example, in the automotive industry, the company prints coloured filters behind translucent symbols or text on the dashboard and speedometer of motor vehicles. They help to create warning symbols meant to be seen when the graphic panel is illuminated. At Reid Print Technologies, overlay panels are designed and made to stand the test of time in manufacturing and working environments.
Various Embossing Options for Overlay Panels
One of the best reasons to have graphic overlays made from Reid Print Technologies is that they utilize thermal embossing technology. This technology lets them emboss intricate designs and patterns without cracking the crease line or damaging the base material.
Several metal tooling embossing techniques can cause cracking at the crease line, resulting in moisture ingress and premature wear and tear. The damage can lead to a shorter life expectancy of button flexibility and reduced product or machinery longevity.
Reid Print Technologies approaches its work in designing and manufacturing graphic overlays and other printed electronics by applying its knowledge to their client’s internal way of doing work.
All staff members understand that to maximize the success of their products, they need to shape their expert advice to how their clients do business.
Reid Print Technologies continues to grow, thanks to the confidence and support that their clients have in them.
