Front panels

Front panels, also known as decorative panels, are an important element of the casing since they inform users about basic functions of the device and facilitate its operation. An appropriate print in the form of a graphic design, text or pictogram makes it possible to control the device in an easy way. Depending on the type of devices and the function they are supposed to perform, they may contain cut-out holes for knobs, buttons, and sockets for connecting cables. They can have flexible embossed areas for microswitches used in electrical appliances, household appliances, power tools and their batteries.  Front panels can also have transparent fields behind which clocks, indicators and digital displays will be mounted. On the front of electronic and audio/video devices, decorative panels, whose task is to emphasise their modern look, are more frequently used. The so-called back panels are then mounted on the back walls. The panels are made of printed sheets of plastics, metals, laminates, multilayer composites punched on special presses or CNC plotters. Selectively applied adhesive layers or double-sided adhesive assembly tapes are most often used for their assembly.

Faceplate labels manufacturer

Etisoft is a manufacturer of modern faceplate labels and front panels labels for electronic equipment, audio/video devices, household appliances and power tools. They are made of plastics using injection moulding machines or pressed on special presses and CNC plotters. These technologies guarantee high precision and aesthetics of any panel, and also allow you to make durable multi-colour prints.

Faceplate labels – functions

Faceplate labels mounted on the front of the appliance inform users about its operating status and facilitate its operation. They usually have cut-outs for knobs and buttons with which the user can control the appliance. Apart from the fact that they serve practical purposes, they are also decorative elements. Modern front panels are made of plastics, laminates, and multi-layer composites. Their task is to highlight the modern design of appliances which has, increasingly frequently, a decisive influence on the consumer’s choice of a specific appliance model.

Faceplate labels for household appliances

Faceplate labels and front panel labels for washing machines and refrigerators are manufactured most frequently. Currently, we make faceplate labels of plastics using injection moulding machines or by pressing them on special presses and CNC plotters. Graphic prints are made directly on the formed part with exceptionally durable inks suitable to the design of the whole appliance. Thanks to that the panel with printed descriptions is resistant to abrasion, washing, chemical agents, or mechanical scratches.

Faceplate panels for electronic and electromechanical appliances

Faceplate labels in modern electronic equipment are the basis of control panels. They are made of metals, laminates, and multi-layer composites. They are also used as decorative panels and trims on the front of electronic equipment and audio/video devices. Their task is to highlight the modern design and style of the product.

Faceplate labels for the automotive industry

Faceplate labels in the automotive industry are most frequently used as counter faces to which clocks, counters and digital displays are mounted. There are made of plastics, laminates, multi-layer composites reinforced with polycarbonate. Thanks to that they have exceptional resistance properties. The panels are also used as decorative elements of dashboards or decorative panels imitating metal and wood. Faceplate panels and other elements of car interior are manufactured in accordance with IATF 16949, ISO 9001, and ISO 14001 standards, which ensures top quality and product repeatability.

Faceplate labels – control at every implementation stage

Faceplate 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

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