Light up your product.
Lighting is becoming increasingly important for successful branding of products. These applications require general back and/or functional lighting.
Abatek has an innovative portfolio of technologies designed to support and develop the shape of both attractive and functional lighting solutions.
Be inspired by some examples below and discuss new ideas or improvements with your nearest Abatek partner.
Light guide films and sheets
Each LGF or LGS not only reduces the number of LED's usualy needed but also spreads the light more efficiently where desired.
In conclution: Fewer LED's means less energy consumption and less heat.
Enjoy design freedom.
Light Guide Sheet (LGS) can have a glossy or matt surface in any 3D shape.
Light solutions with Silicone Keypads
Abatek offers high quality equipment for precisely laser etched graphics on silicon parts.
Sealing LED light pipes within the Keypad.
Thin windows for indicator LED's: When the LED window is very thin it almost appears transparent. This characteristic can be used to design a sealed window for indicator LED's.
The almost non-transparent silicone on the side wall will still prevent from light leakage.
For additional protection - if required - the surface can be covered with an additional color layer whereas the LED windows are cleared by a laser process.
Transparent key top
A-Surface with silicone part
For A-Surface parts the backlight can be adjusted by the percentage of the color pigments added into the base material. The LED can be positioned directly under each key for example by using a ring pill.
Transmission of light.
The most commonly used technique is to guide the light through a silicone pipe to the surface.
As a light pipe acrylic glass instead of silicone can be inserted into the keypad.
Night Design & Dead Front
Night Design & Dead Front Panels.
This technology is also known as Night Design / Dead Front Panel and basically uses the “Disappearance Effect”.
All lit areas disappear when the source of light is turned off and all that remains is a homogeneous surface.
Only when the light is switched on the desired function/information is visible.
Abatek offers the Black Panel Solution as stand-alone or as part of a complete design combined with our Light Foil or Light Sheet.
Discover new design freedom for 3D objects with a self-healing and closed surface.
Distinguish the look by combining various colors and surface structures to emphasize your brand.
Exciting new design possibilities.
This 100% closed water proof & chemical resistant surface offers never previously seen design possibilities.
