Capabilities/Solution Partner

  • Laube Technology, Inc.
    • Laube Technology is a leading supplier of membrane switches and other flexible circuit solutions for the consumer, commercial, industrial and medical markets. Laube provides a quality product at competitive prices. All products are produced in ISO approved facilities.

      Silicon Rubber Keypads continue to be a popular choice for design engineers. By utilizing silk screen printing or in mold decoration for legends and background, virtually any key colors and layout combinations are possible. When properly designed, tactile performance and wear resistance of Silicon Rubber Keypads can rival that of mechanical switches. Tooling cost and piece price is an exceptional value.

      By being involved early on in the design stages of your end product we can offer our unrivaled knowledge to help you determine if Silicon Rubber, as a key switch option, is correct for the application. Our technical sales staff can assist you in providing information that may affect cost and product performance. Our engineering team will review all available documentation during the development of the keypad, to assure that keypad and housing together with the printed circuit board are compatible in fit and performance. We will make certain that as we develop the tooling it conforms to product requirements.
