Why membrane switch remains a relevant HMI technology.

At their core, Human-Machine Interface (HMI) technologies are “The hardware or software through which an operator interacts with a controller. An HMI can range from a physical control panel with buttons and indicator lights to an industrial PC with a color graphics display running dedicated HMI software.” 

The future of manufacturing in Singapore


Understanding the Singapore Startup Ecosystem

Central Midori has close ties with Singapore's startup hub, which is ranked 17th globally by Startup Genome (top five include Silicon Valley, London, NYC, Beijing and Boston) and fifth in Asia (top four include Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo and Seoul).

Request for Quotation Checklist: Membrane Switches

In this second article about Quotation Checklist we will look specifically into Membrane Switches.

Request for Quotation Checklist: Security Foils

Requesting a quotation can be daunting for  our potential and current customers. Done correctly, a thorough RFQ can dramatically reduce friction and shorten lead-time. In this series of articles our objective is to simplify the RFQ process by providing clear instructions on what is expected from the manufacturer’s standpoint.

Rapid Prototyping in Lean Startup Methodology

In his book Lean Startup Eric Ries tells us that startups used to spend years developing and perfecting a product without ever showing it to prospective customers. Failures were often because the customers did not have the opportunity to say whether the product was interesting to them.

Central Midori is proud to announce the purchase of a fully integrated Laser Plotter and Film Processor.

In our ongoing efforts to deliver more value to our customers CMI has purchased a new Laser Plotter and Film Processor. This new addition will allow CMI to produce its own films in-house, which will reduce tooling charges and shorten lead time.

Design of Experiment for Printed Electronic

A  Design of Experiment (DOE) is a technique that helps to determine the influence of the process factors to the process output. It originated in the US after World War I, was taken to Japan in the 1950s by W Edward Deming and became very popular in the late 90’s thanks to six sigmas process improvement methodology.

Functional Inks for Printed Electronics

A few years ago, confronted by a drop in sales, we had to reflect on our capabilities,  as defined by Clayton M. Christensen as Resources, Processes, and Priorities  and reexamine our strategy.
