Snaptron SMT S-series metal dome switch line additions
Snaptron is thrilled to have announced the expansion of its S-Series metal domes switch line with 8.5mm, 12mm, and 14mm size options.
This latest addition demonstrates Snaptron's commitment to expanding this solution that caters to the evolving needs of its customers.
Snaptron’s S-Series domes are standard four-leg metal dome switches with two solderable tabs. The tabs allow the dome to be soldered directly to a printed circuit board or flex circuit without impacting performance. Like traditional tactile domes, the solder dome is a normally open momentary contact that provides crisp tactile feedback, letting the user know a button was pressed.
Traditional methods of adhering metal domes to the circuit board require adhesive tape or placement into spacer pockets. This process is typically done semi-automatically or manually and requires an assembler. A major benefit of a solder dome is the ease of assembly and the ability to use existing surface mount technology (SMT) equipment to place these domes.
"We are excited to announce the expansion of our S-Series metal domes switch line with the introduction of the new sizes and forces, and this is just the beginning,” said Ashley Steinbach, Director of Strategic Development at Snaptron. “We are actively investing in the expansion of this line to provide our customers with an even greater range of options.”
As part of Snaptron’s commitment to driving innovation within the tactile switch industry, it’s continuously expanding its product offerings. Snaptron empowers engineers, designers, and manufacturers with the tools they need to drive innovation and create remarkable user experiences in their products.
