Graphic Overlay Printing

No matter what industry or sector, our graphic overlays offer a versatile solution that seamlessly integrates with various products and applications.

Membrane overlays manufacturing

Our membrane overlays offer a superior user experience with ergonomic design, making products engaging and easy to use. We offer backlighting to enhance visibility, including electroluminescent (EL), fiber optics, and LED (light-emitting diode) for an energy-efficient option. Membrane overlays also can be embossed to create tactile feedback to improve input accuracy.

Our materials ensure the utmost protection, including thermoset plastic, such as polycarbonate (best known by the GE registered trademark of Lexan®) or a thermoplastic such as PET, also known as polyester, (under the Dupont trade name of Mylar®).  With our graphic overlay printing techniques, you can rest assured your brand will always look sharp.

Nameplates, labels, and dials manufacturing

Established in 1937, NMG initially provided basic metal dials to the aerospace sector.
