Complete Panel Fabrication

Precision Graphics can build your entire panel in one complete process.  We can punch, machine, paint the substrate, and install hardware.  We can design, print, and cut the circuits, and then integrate components.  We can also print, and cut the graphic overlay, and then assemble the entire part.  Providing this whole process internally helps ensure beautiful registration between all layers while reducing lead time and cost.

Our extensive fabricating capabilities can be utilized individually to create labels, stickers, or banners. Combining capabilities allows for much more complex and useful parts that include membrane circuitry, rigid panels with multicolored graphic overlays, and PEM installations. Our business process allows for a highly customized treatment for your unique part. Let us know how we can help meet your panel needs today!

IN HOUSE TECHNOLOGIES

What sets Precision Graphics apart from other panel, membrane switch, and graphic overlay manufacturers is our in-house capabilities of fabrication, machining, punching and cutting for metals and plastics. Why is this significant? Because it affords Precision Graphics control over the entire manufacturing process for most custom front panels, enabling us to offer superior lead-times, quality, and pricing. Providing these capabilities internally also helps to ensure excellent registration between graphic layers, membranes, and sub-panels. These capabilities also enable us to offer competitive pricing by avoiding mark-ups of external suppliers and to offer the quickest lead times for orders.

FEATURED: METALPHOTO®
PHOTOSENSITIVE ANODIZED ALUMINUM

We are one of very few certified MetalPhoto® converters in the country. Our MetalPhoto® products are an incredible combination of durability, versatility, and beauty. These are primary objectives for control panels and nameplates! If you need a part that does not require circuitry, we encourage you to look into our Metalphoto® process as an option. We explain much on our MetalPhoto® webpage but if you would like more information, feel free to check out MetalPhoto’s own website here.

Quality Service and Master Craftsmanship

Ready To Use

Precision Graphics can build your entire front panel as a single complete process. We punch, machine, and paint the substrate, then insert hardware. We also design, print, and cut the circuits, then integrate its components. Furthermore, we print, and cut the graphic overlay, then assemble the entire part. Providing this whole process internally guarantees beautiful registration between all layers while reducing lead time and cost.

Fast

With no minimum quantity requirements, short run is our specialty. Precision Graphics manufactures the entire part from overlay, to circuitry, to sub-panel in the same facility. This incredible spectrum of capabilities allows for the most competitive price and shortest lead time. An established rhythm among our coordinated staff will move your parts swiftly through the facility from quote to shipment.

Durable

Durability is an undeniable strength of our products. We print graphics subsurface which protects the ink behind the plastic it is printed on, making it most effective against abrasion, aggressive chemicals and of course, every day handling. The look and life of your overlay can be further prolonged by placing it inside a recessed pocket of a rigid panel. This shields the edge from receiving abrasion. For those who want a black image imbedded in aluminum, Metalphoto yields a sapphire-hard anodized layer tolerant of extreme temperatures, long-term outdoor exposure, abrasion, salt spray, and most chemicals. Whatever the hazards, Precision Graphics will defend against it.

Precise

We take pride in our level of precision. It is in our name. The graphic designers color match with the latest vector software and our large format digital printers swiftly lay ink up to 1,200 DPI. The screen printers color match with the exact science of UV curable ink mixing formulas and produces features as small as .005” across. We machine within a tolerance of .005” and the painters color match with computer databased paint formulas that utilize a mix of 16 base colors. To bring it all together, the assembly department works closely with the others by its very nature, so the registration between all these beautiful layers remains accurate.

Beautiful

The beauty of our product is established through precision and durability. We will follow the exact specifications of your part with the tight tolerances of our equipment and our numerous methods for color matching. Your part will remain looking new by employing various methods such as printing subsurface, recessing overlays, and Metalphoto®.
