HMI systems for appliance manufacturing

It is a straightforward and obvious rule that lowering operator error rates directly increases productivity, so we place great importance on usability and intuitive operation. That is why design plays a crucial role in developing HMI systems – the keyboard surface design, colour and illumination ensures error-free appliance operation.

The challenge for device construction applications lies in evenly lighting the low-profile keyboard. We are specialists in this field, and one of the leading suppliers with our Griessbach-illuminated key, and have what it takes to satisfy the latest trends and requirements while developing product solutions that meet the most demanding installation situations and requirements on style. We develop innovative lighting systems alongside the classical keyboards – lighting systems that simulate modern glass and touchscreen control surfaces using conventional illuminated keyboards with large overlays in an inexpensive and robust alternative to touchscreen solutions.

Rest assured, our engineers will develop the right solution for your operating requirements using latest technical advances.

Case Study

Example: imitation of a glass front

Imitation of a glass front


· The glass front cost optimized imitate


· To realize the shiny, glass-like surface a high gloss film was used and combined with tactile switching behavior. This allows the operator a direct feedback on the executed shift, while maintaining the highest design specifications.
