Faceplate Prototype Project Solution
Manufacturing Faceplate Prototypes for a Regional Transportation Authority
Ticket vending machines for a regional transportation authority were becoming a target for vandalism in busy city terminals. Because of constant everyday use and mistreatment, the customer’s Braille polycarbonate overlays were failing at an unacceptable rate. Not only was product longevity a concern, but government regulations also had to be met due to the tactile and Braille printing. Roemer Industries was consulted to manufacture a long-term solution to correct these problems.
Considering the application, Roemer sent the customer several material samples for review and testing. Through working closely with Roemer’s Sales Team and engineering staff the customer was able to determine that the most durable and functional option for them was a polycarbonate overlay mounted on top of an aluminum panel. The overlay required a unique combination of fabrication processes including embossing, laser cutting, and screen-printing.
With Roemer Rapid Prototyping, custom samples were manufactured for the customers’ approval. By working with Roemer Industries, the company was able to receive prototypes that exceeded their requirements, while meeting government regulations.
