Control panels

Control panels, commonly called window panels, are elements which are built in the front part of electronic devices and household appliances. They have a significant decorative function, but, above all, they are used to control the whole device. Their task is to present a user with the status and operating parameters of the device in an aesthetic and legible way. Control panels are made of plastics with the use of the injection moulding method thanks to which they can be freely formed and adapted to the shape of the whole appliance. The method guarantees high aesthetics and precision. Thanks to special printing techniques with the use of paints and coatings with insulating or conductive properties, it is possible to transform the control panel into a touch control panel which replaces traditional buttons and knobs. In this way, control panels improve the aesthetics and functionality of the whole product.

  • durable print made with special paints
  • aesthetic and durable design
  • easy mounting to the housing of the device
  • any shape
  • any type of material



Control panel labels – manufacturer

Etisoft specialises in manufacturing all types of control panels for various branches of industry. We custom manufacture and supply control panels for car chargers, control panels for power tools and household appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators, and dishwashers.

Control panel labels – functions

Control panel labels are an indispensable element of every household equipment or appliance. Above all, they serve practical purposes, but are also decorative elements. Control panel labels protect the displays, LCD screens, electronics and luminescent diodes hidden behind them. They make it possible to control a given appliance using integrated buttons as well as, more and more frequently, touch screens.

Control panel labels for the automotive industry

Currently, we are one of the largest European suppliers of control panel labels for electric car chargers. The control panel labels mounted in chargers are made of printed sheets of polycarbonate film. The sheets then go to the machine that gives them shape and also makes small embossing in the places of buttons. Thanks to their elasticity, it is possible to exert pressure on the microswitches hidden under the panel and responsible for controlling the device. Polycarbonate control panel labels are exceptionally durable and resistant to repeated pressure. They meet all the standards of the automotive industry. Control panel labels are manufactured in accordance with IATF 16949, ISO 9001, and ISO 14001 standards, which ensures top quality and product repeatability.

Control panel labels for household appliances

We make control panels for the world’s largest manufacturers of household appliances. More than 100 million of various types of panels have been manufactured so far. The most frequent type of control panels for washing machines and refrigerators are  Window Panels. Window Panels are characterised by modern design, high functionality, and durability. Their name derives from the characteristic ‘window’ under which LCD displays and screens are hidden. They are made with the injection moulding method and screen printed on the back side. Thanks to that they are aesthetic and fully resistant to external conditions such as abrasion, washing, chemical agents or mechanical scratches. Touch-sensitive control panels are manufactured using screen-printing in the places of buttons with special inks of conductive properties and appropriate resistance. The sensors hidden behind the panel detect changes in potential at these points when the panel is touched, and in this way make touch control of the appliance possible.

Control panel labels for power tools

Control panel labels for modern power tools are manufactured from screen printed polycarbonate sheets. The sheets then go to the machine that gives them shape and also makes small embossing at the button locations. Thanks to their elasticity, it is possible to exert pressure on the microswitches hidden under the panel which are responsible for control. Polycarbonate control panel labels are exceptionally durable and resistant to repeated pressure. They are characterised by modern design, functionality, and ease of assembly.

Control panel labels – verification at every stage of implementation

Control panel labels are manufactured to customer specifications. Each such implementation is divided into stages that are followed by a design compliance check:

  • design execution
  • preparing an injection mould or taking it over from the customer
  • carrying out a series of test injections
  • tests and measurements of raw workpieces
  • selection of printing technology and inks
  • preparation of printing moulds
  • test printing and measurements, and tests of print durability
  • manufacturing of a series of samples

After the official positive evaluation and the absence of customer comments, mass production and order processing begin.
