Capacitive Touch Sensors

Customizable, flexible and curved designs

Capacitive touch sensors are capacitive sensor fields printed on ultra-thin films. Similar to capacitive touchscreens, these functional films are operated intuitively with just a light touch. For many applications, these printed control elements have become a popular alternative to common tactile membrane switches and touchscreens. The biggest advantage over conventional touchscreens: the customizability! The capacitive key shape and sizes, design and backlighting can be implemented and configured according to customer requirements.

Thanks to their low profile and light, flexible design, this technology is ideal for compact devices. The flexibility of the capacitive touch sensors allows for easy integration even on curved surfaces. The printed capacitive film can also be combined with tactile switches and buttons.

Virtually endless design options

Printed capacitive touch sensors can be easily customized! They are custom printed with capacitive, translucent sensor fields. You have the choice between variable key shapes and sizes and different membrane materials and thickness. The flexible properties of the membrane film also allows easy integration on curved surfaces, even 3D molding / in-mold electronics.

The user interface is also designed according to your design requirements. Whether graphic design overlay, cover glass or plastic disk – the layout is configured individually according to your design requirements.
