Snaptron, Inc.

Our tactile domes are momentary switch contacts that, when used in conjunction with a printed circuit board, flex circuit, or membrane, become normally open tactile switches.  Tactile domes are placed onto the substrate with pressure sensitive adhesive tape (Peel-N-Place Array) or captured in a membrane-type pocket design.

For over 20 years Snaptron has been the industry leader in providing high quality tactile metal switch contacts (snap domes) and complimentary equipment for a wide variety of industries.  Our customer service and breadth of product (variety of dome styles, sizes, and forces available) are second to none.

Snaptron carries over 10 different standard dome styles, with sizes ranging from 4mm to 25mm.  Custom tactile domes can also be created with minimal lead times.

Featured Product

SQ-Series Dome 

SQ-Series domes were developed in 2014 using Snaptron’s proprietary manufacturing processes.  This dome is more square in shape than previous 4-leg domes which allows it to maintain robust features including a life cycle specification of 10,000,000 cycles.  It also features the ability to incorporate higher forces without affecting its life cycle rating (which can diminish with other styles of domes).  In addition, the SQ04200N is 4mm in diameter (3.3mm side measurement) making it one of the smallest micro-domes on the market today.

Peel-N-Place Dome Arrays

 

Snaptron tactile metal domes are often placed onto a printed circuit board or flex circuit using a pressure sensitive adhesive tape – referred to as Snaptron’s Peel-N-Place dome arrays.

Two options for Peel-N-Place Arrays:

Standard – A single dome on a square piece of adhesive tape (packaged in sheet form)

Custom – Multiple domes placed in the exact locations you require (including cuts for “keep out” areas.  Send Snaptron a PNP drawing.
