aki was founded in 1992 in Jihlava, Czech Republic and manufactures with 200 employees input devices for industrial applications, automation industries and medical appliances. Our core markets are germany, austria, switzerland.
Main products are touchpanels, membrane keyboards and complete input devices.
Since 2012 aki develops and manufactures projective capacitive touchscreens with glass overlays, as well as capacitive switches/keyboards. Our manufacture facilities include cleanroom and ESD-safe areas for assembling electronic components.
Our quality managment focuses on thorough and extensive preparation of new products and continous surveillance of all current and new processes. An integrated FMEA process is a mandatory core element for new projects as soon as there is any deviance from internal aki-standards.
Since 1998 aki is certified according ISO 9011.
Total area is 42.000 sq feet, production departments are cnc-milling, silkscreen printing, mounting of electronic components, assembly and final electrical testing.
Cover foils and cicuitry are printed in climatized environment. For specific processes the printing is done in cleanroom conditions.
our cnc-milling machines are optimized for aluminum frontplates up to thickness 35mm. According to specification or technical requirement different alloys of aluminum are beeing used.
Outline and cut-outs of single foils or the completly laminated composite are manufactured on cnc laser-cutters. All data are generated by our CAD department and stored together with the production papers for later analyses.
Led bonding on pick and place machine specially adapted for flexible materials. The bonding process guarantees resistance to mechanical and thermical stress. Accuracy of positioning is +/- 0,1 mm, actual minimal size of leds is 0603.
Assembly of displays, touchscreens and overlays (glass, polycarbonate, foil . . ) requires cleanroom conditions with controlled temperature and humidity. The complete production department is ESD safe.
bonding of glass overlays and touchscreens as well as the following assembly processes are as well done in temperature controlled cleanroom.
