If products that are resistant to weather, UV light, fading, chemicals, and abrasions are a must for your business, look no further than Reid Industrial’s Durable Screen Printed products. Selective & zoned adhesives, custom textures, and optically clear materials are features that are readily available to enhance your products.
With over 25 years of experience, we are able to offer our customers expanded capabilities to fulfill a wide variety of applications. Our membrane switches, overlay panels, capacitive switches and labels are permanent components on many of today’s high visibility products.
For years, Reid Industrial has been offering our customers extensive screen printing capabilities of membrane keypads and graphic overlays. Our goal is to give you the tools and capabilities to create and manufacture your entire part here, which saves you time and money. If you can imagine it, we can build it.
Reid Industrial Graphic Products is recognised as an industry-leading printed electronics company utilising the latest digital printing technologies. The technologies we utilise allow us to offer our customers high quality, short to medium run products including labels, decals, and membrane switch overlays with quick turnaround times. Cost savings are achieved by eliminating films, screens, and traditional material waste.
Our digital printing technologies allow us to produce parts with variable data, this includes custom numbering, bar codes, security features, and even fully variable images. These systems can be integrated with our digital finishing technologies, thus eliminating the need for tooling.
Our graphic and engineering design personnel work with clients to determine the best product design with the latest state-of-the-art technology. We provide complete converting and finishing options, and our processes adhere to ISO AS/NZ 9001:2015.
Reid Industrial provides RoHS, Certificate of Compliance and Material Traceability Certificates for our Aerospace and Defence industries customers, just ask our sales technicians if you require these documents with your next order .
Every product produced at Reid Industrial goes through rigorous review. We test for conformance to specific performance requirements identified at the design stage. Colour is always critical for products that represent your company in the market. Reliable electronic circuitry with repeatable resistance is important for switch performance. Every circuit on every Reid switch receives a verification for circuit integrity. Each LED is tested independently. Your product needs Reid Industrial Technology!
Reid Industrial have a full in-house colour-matching and ink-mixing department, offering total control from colour approval to dispatch. Utilising a computerised colour matching system we are able to offer total colour consistency from order to order.
Our accurate and calibrated system not only ensures perfect colour matching but also calculates the exact amount of ink required for each print run. This in turn eliminates waste and ultimately guarantees our customer’s products are being manufactured as ‘lean’ as possible.
We have the capabilities to match to any colour system (Pantone, RAL, BS, Munsell etc…), or a corporate hybrid. We can also offer phosphorescent or metallic blends. All colours are checked in a D65 light box before being released to production.
All of our Ink Technicians have been trained to industry-leading standards by the ink manufacturers. This in-depth training has given our technicians an understanding of inks on a molecular level, leading to a thorough knowledge of ink behaviour and colour control.
Whether you require graphic overlays, labels or membrane switches, we can guarantee perfect colour consistency every time.
With our team of professionals checking the progress and quality requirements at every step in the manufacturing process, you can be assured that your project is in good hands at Reid Industrial. Our in house Production Management System is under constant review to ensure that we always exceed our customers expectations. Did you know that our manufacturing system allows us to have full trace ability of our raw materials?
With our varied knowledge of plastic films, specialty pressure sensitive materials and adhesives; Reid Industrial has the ability to combine multiple custom converting techniques to enhance your unique constructions.
Our diverse capabilities include precision laser cutting, adhesive lamination, and custom precision die cutting. We also specialise in, hydro form embossing, liquid lensing and robotic pick and placing of smd components. By bringing these processes together, we are able to produce highly specified interface products for the electronics industry.
Product development cycles sometimes require the need for rapid prototyping or small production runs. Often this need is driven by milestones such as a proof-of-concept, the need to provide a product demo to your client or you simply have a requirement for small quantities of high quality graphic panels or labels.
Reid Industrial Graphic Products has made significant investments in equipment to achieve a completely digital production process. A State-of-the-art wide format digital printing press, high-speed laser cutting machines in conjunction with thermal embossing equipment have enabled Reid Industrial to dramatically reduce setup times, avoid expensive tooling costs, and shorten delivery times. Whilst we always place the highest priority on quality and utilise our full range of MacDermid Autotype and 3M product ranges, shorter than normal lead time is the over-riding factor in our prototyping and small production run services.
By utilising a digital workflow allows for seamless output of variable data, whether that is consecutive numbering or barcodes that are first or second surface printed.
Membrane Switches can also be produced as a prototype, which in essence is a small production run. The overlay layer however, can be either digitally printed or a traditional screen print, which can be embossed and have tactile metal domes. The circuit layers are fully-functional and screen printed using the same processes and standards as our production runs. These small quantities can also utilise our backlighting technologies, including EL and LED.
