Laser Cutting

Optically registered laser cutting enables prototyping and fine precision for close proximity cutouts, such as spacer guides. Our skilled laser cutters can cut custom shapes and sizes that would be impossible to achieve using a steel rule die. Typical tolerances of laser cutters are of +/-.005″.

Deadfront Graphics

With years of experience creating custom panel overlays and faceplates, NFI Corp can offer a variety of options. We can include deadfront icons and symbols with a range of color windows. SinglePoint LEDs can be included in designs or on the backlit graphics. In fact, we can design your products and solutions to be backlit and not visible until lit. Colors can be created by using either translucent inks with a white light source or color LEDs.

Backlit Graphics

These products are visible when not lit but become functional indicators when lit, and the addition of urethane doming provides a button-like feel. Specific daytime and nighttime colors can be customized.
