Control Panel Printing
Full colour, flexible control panels
Control panels or switch panels are often produced by attaching engraved labels to a powder coated steel backplate. We can make control panels this way but we also offer a number of unique alternatives. One of the most cost effective, flexible and powerful ways of labelling control panels is to print them directly onto a routed Aluminium Composite panel.
This solutions allows for more detailed information, including EN7010 warning symbols, full colour logos or photographic / illustrated mimic images. You can keep your marketing department happy, whilst improving the safety & usability of your machine and also potentially reduce costs.
Our Manufacturing On Demand set up means that we can customise these labels for you on the fly, making each panel unique or changed every batch. If you need similar flexibility with colour and print, but even need better abrasion or chemical resistance then take a look our Aluminium Ano-Printing. See more.

Made In Britain
We are proud to make all our products in the UK, sure we bring in raw materials, but all the processing is done here. As much as we love real ale and sausage rolls, our pride really comes from the power of distributed, lean, on demand manufacturing. Making locally means supply chains are more secure, transport CO2 is dramatically reduced and Just In Time becomes much more feasible.
