Through a collaborative effort between JN White and the customer, the design and engineering teams worked through the challenges and came up with a solution.
Prioritizing Durability- The team choose a weatherable polycarbonate coated graphic overlay resistant to chemicals, extreme temperature, exposure to sand, dust and debris, humidity/water, UV rays, and more. This solution ensured that the product can operate reliably under any condition.
Outstanding Graphics- JN White’s digital printing technologies allowed us to produce the graphic overlay in full photographic quality, highlighting the carbon fiber gradient background pattern the client had envisioned.
Collaboration- Having a hybrid JN White graphic overlay (digital and screen printing combined for extreme durability) and Chinese produced membrane switch allowed us to sell competitively in the market place. This collaboration allowed JN White to drive the volumes the customer required, with the potential to grow to two million units annually. After an audit of our facility to better understand our supply chain and our ability to manage high volume jobs, they validated JN White’s ability to support their volume positively.
The JN White team applied their extensive experience in graphic overlay and membrane switch manufacturing to meet all of the customer’s requirements for durability and quality. It was through the engineering teams from both firms, and the collaboration with our Asia partners, we were able to develop a solution that allowed us to drive the volume of products needed, with the protentional for further growth into the future.
