Algra AG from Switzerland has devoted itself to this special field. It develops and manufactures printed plates, panels and keyboards and can draw on decades of experience. This accumulated expertise has made Algra a world leader in this segment. Keyboards must always remain operational no matter what special conditions they are subjected to and they must be capable of resisting external impacts such as moisture and soiling. In other words they have to meet special criteria, whereby the combination of flexibility, ease of cleaning and durability are of vital importance.
'The high degree of flexibility and accuracy provided by the eurolaser systemtechnology is the reason we prefer laser cutting to punching. Camera recognitionof optical markings has brought enormous benefits for panel processing.'
In order to automate the production of the high-quality keyboards, one of the laser systems is fed with membranes directly from a robot. The position of the foil sheet is recognised per camera and cut exactly. Then the keyboards are collected again by robot and separated from the rest of the sheet. Thanks to the fully-automatic system it is possible to operate round the clock and to utilize the potential of the laser systems to the full.
Thanks to its many years of experience in the field of membrane keyboards Algra AG is well aware that customer orientation plays an important role in the production of an optimum keyboard. This approach means that the individual requirements and specific demands of each and every customer can be met. Algra AG offers its customers in-depth consultations and supports them as partner from the word go with the development of complete solutions.
