AEROSPACE ALUMINIUM TOUCH SENSE SEAT CONTROL UNIT

Project

A French aerospace seating system manufacturer, a world leader in its field, needed a new and innovative approach to its units interface panel. The new design had to be more effective, better quality and, importantly for the client, be modern looking and fit within the ergonomics and aesthetics of the surrounds.

Solution

Thanks to our experience in membrane switching and the expertise of our Innovation Engine, we provided a unique solution.

We combined a special substrate material and printing process to produce a polymer that replicates brushed metal (aluminium in this case, but it could have been many other materials).

The design team then integrated this with a self-calibrating capacitive sense switching system, producing the world’s first metal Touchsense seating switch.

“The moment In2tec showed us the concept ideas we were excited about the prospect of this project. The team involved believe it will provide us with a significant advantage in the market place.”
