Spray Painted & Pad Printed Faceplate for the Telecommunications Industry

A telecommunications customer in Michigan needed to have this faceplate bezel finished for use on one of their product lines. To obtain the desired finish, we developed a custom paint finish that would match the customer requirements for color, gloss and texture. We used a gray polyurethane paint system, which was applied in our paint booth, with a fine detail spray gun.

The graphics were applied utilizing pad printing techniques as opposed to screen printed, which yielded much sharper graphics on the textured surface. Laser etching was used for the parts marking for optimal permanence and clarity. Throughout the process, various quality control measures were applied such as visual Inspection for color/texture match and artwork correctness, as well a final inspections prior to packaging.

Prime Products produced 9,000 to 10,000 of these components per year, with lead times as short as 3 to 5 weeks. To learn more about our other capabilities, contact us directly.
