Control panels allow users to monitor and operate industrial machinery or processes from one specific, centralised area. They house a range of electronic displays and components.
For ease and safety of use, these control panels require covers, graphic overlays, labels and enclosure components. There are typically areas for various push buttons, switches and even LCD screens; these are used to input commands, adjust settings and view information about the status of the machine or process.
Quality Materials & Leading In-house Manufacturing Processes
Whether you have an existing product or a new control panel in the early stages of development, we can assist you with design and prototypes, ensuring a solution that meets your specification and budget.
Our range of specialist in-house processes enables us to offer a robust, long-lasting solution tailored to your precise application and budget.
- Anodised aluminium with digitally printed graphics: Anodised aluminium is suited superbly to harsh exterior environments. During the anodising process, we can print digitally onto the metal’s open pores, allowing us to recreate any type of design or colour combination; perfect for a highly visual solution.
- Laser cut and printed acrylic panels: We can cut and shape control panel components from polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), a transparent thermoplastic. Lightweight, shatterproof and UV resistant, this material offers excellent clarity and even chemical resistance.
- Etched and filled stainless steel: By using an acid solution to wear away certain sections of the metal not masked by a ‘chemical resist’, we can create a solution of remarkable durability and exceptional corrosion resistance. This can be infilled with paints to suit your design requirements.
- Powder coated and printed metal panels: Powder is applied to a metal and heated, causing it to bond to the surface. The result is a solution resistant to corrosion, fading scratches — perfectly suited to challenging applications.
Don’t hesitate to contact our team for advice on materials and processes for your application. All of these products can be manufactured to your desired colour, shape and thickness.
