Developing a new keyboard product involves many different steps. Once a basic concept has been outlined, you’ll need to come up with a realistic design, taking into account things like functionality, ergonomics, back-lighting, key-feel, and other user experience factors. The goal is to design a product that does what you want it to, and is practical enough to develop.
Next will come the engineering stage, where designs are refined. If certain materials won’t meet the necessary requirements for your keyboard or other electronic device, an engineer will be able to come up with better alternatives. They may also come up with a better design that’s easier and cheaper to produce.
After going through a few iterations, it’ll be time to prototype the product. This involves taking your idea from paper (or CAD drawing, more likely), and making 3-D models and/or working samples.
Finding a manufacturing partner that can walk you through all stages of development, from design and engineering to prototyping, will cut down a lot of time during the process. Techprint’s team of engineers offers turnkey solutions for keyboards, printed circuit boards, elastomer design, cabling, electromechanical components, and much more.
Our team of experts will work with you to create the best iteration of your product, including remodeling, prototyping, and re-engineering as necessary. We can even take care of the procurement side of things to keep the process as simple as possible. Techprint can work as your manufacturing partner to support the full manufacturing lifecycle of your product.
Our processes are certified to ISO 9001, UL, CSA, IPC, ESD, ITAR and RoHS Compliant standards, so you can be assured of product reliability.
