This supplier of metal tactile domes and dome arrays developed a procedure for “stacking” metal domes supplied on adhesive tape (Peel-N-Place arrays). Stacking domes gives design engineers the ability to double the actuation force of any of the supplier’s 4-leg domes, sizes 7 mm to 20 mm. Actuation forces in excess of 4,000 g can now be achieved on standard and custom dome arrays with adhesive.
Typically, the life of a dome diminishes as the actuation force increases in relation to the size of dome. As a result, design engineers have often had to sacrifice actuation force in order to achieve desired life. Stacking domes allows higher forces to be achieved with little or no impact on life.
