Marketing manager Karen Keighley comments: "A lot of our product enquiries are for one-offs and specials, and with 3D design software and then the capability for 3D printing the finished parts, we can achieve a much faster turnaround both for prototypes and short production runs."
Tapeswitch manufactures pressure-sensitive products for safety, signalling, sensing and control applications, designed to serve a wide range of industries and markets. The company has developed a wide range of ribbon-switch systems suitable for use in numerous different applications. The versatility of the product, combined with the expertise of Tapeswitch's engineers, enables the company to provide innovative solutions for customers' requirements.
