SCHURTER Electronics spol. s r.o. (former AKI ELECTRONIC) was founded in Jihlava in 1992 as a production facility for membrane keypads and overlay panels. In the beginning, the main market and distribution facility was located in Austria. However, due to consistently good quality and favourable production costs, the company has been able to expand successfully. Today, SCHURTER Electronics spol. s r.o. manufactures on a production area totalling 5,000 m² products such as input systems, PCAP touch panels and membrane keypads for the German, Austrian and Czech markets.
From the beginning, aki's focus was on the highest possible production coverage, with the result that all the following production steps are now carried out in-house: mechanical production of aluminium base plates on CNC milling machines, complete production of the cover glass (including mechanical processing, chemical pre-stressing and imprinting within automated screen printing), optical bonding of touch sensors together with mounting of displays in the clean room.
In addition to touch panels with resistive and capacitive technology, membrane keyboards remain a very important product for SCHURTER Electronics spol. s r.o.. Important processes such as the screen printing process have been automated to achieving optimum production. SCHURTER Electronics spol. s r.o. has many years of experience in the implementation of a wide range of requirements and needs, and our application engineers offer comprehensive support in the design and construction of the keyboard.
SCHURTER Electronics spol. s r.o. has been awarded certification according to ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 (medical devices) as part of our commitment to quality and ongoing improvement of all relevant processes.
