Data sheet engineering services (eng) Data sheet engineering services (norwegian)
Keytouch designs and develops control and display panels tailored to customer requirements. Our highly experienced team of engineers and technicians ensure that all aspects of a project are completed in a thorough and timely manner and that technology and quality are built into every aspect of the project.
Combining our core competencies, we can provide our customers with solutions in:
- Polymer thick film
- Environmental standards/testing
Keytouch’s engineers have designed a project flow chart which is used to quality assure the project phase and define milestones that incorporate both customer requirements and supplier capabilities.
The customer is involved in every aspect of the development phase of a new product in order to secure the optimal solution. The outcome of this phase leads to a series of prototypes. When the prototype has been accepted, the process of industrializing the product for production begins.
Environmental testing or certain product certifications may be required at a certified testing facility before a product is approved for production. Keytouch Engineers have the knowledge and capability to accomplish these testing/certification requirements.
From concept to final production, there are six primary phases in the development cycle:
- Test and qualification/acceptance
Data sheet 3D Modelling (eng) Data sheet 3D Modelling (norwegian)
In an evolving market where product complexity increases while development time decreases, the need for modeling ahead of production is vital. We use 3D modelling when constructing complete panel solutions that contain mechanics, printed circuit boards, and electromechanical parts.
In products containing printed circuit board we use the CAD software Cadstar, a program that enables the design of anything from two-layer circuit boards to complex multi-layer boards. We use Cadstar for drawing circuit diagrams, placing components, and for tracing. Following these steps, PCB documentation and production descriptions for printed circuit boards are generated. Cadstar can also be used to transfer printed circuit board outlays to 3D in order to maintain an exact three dimensional model. This is highly useful for adapting printed circuit board, mechanics, wiring, and other necessary components.
Keytouch uses the 3D Autodesk Inventor, a tool utilized for the construction and development of mechanical components and for collocation of the different parts of the product. With this tool, drawings are easily extractable and modifications to these drawings can easily be done. Autodesk Inventor can handle files of various formats, including Cadstar, as well as other 3D DAK programs like Pro-Engineer and Mechanical Desk Top.
