IDM case with waterproof and antibacterial IPX7 Office keyboard for medical use.

1. Demand analysis In environments such as hospitals, keyboards often need to be waterproof and washable to ensure their safety and hygiene. In response to these demands, KEYCEO needs to design a waterproof and washable keyboard for medical use, which needs to reach the waterproof level of IPX7 and can be soaked in water for cleaning. In addition, the keyboard also needs to be widely used in humid environments such as hospitals, gas stations, and fishing boats. During the design process, designers need to consider the following factors:

3. Use scenarios: keyboards need to be widely used in humid environments such as hospitals, gas stations, and fishing boats. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the appearance, material, function, etc. of the design suitable for various environments.

2. Design ideas In the design process, the designer follows the following principles:

1. Appearance design: The keyboard should have a simple and beautiful appearance design to meet a wide range of usage scenarios. At the same time, designers need to consider other special design requirements, such as strengthening the sealing of the keyboard.

2. Material selection: The designer chooses to use high-quality ABS plastic to make the shell of the keyboard, and uses suitable sealing materials to ensure waterproof performance. Materials for keycaps and keyboard switches need to choose materials with good antibacterial properties.

3. Keyboard type: The designer chooses to use a membrane keyboard or a silicone keyboard. These two keyboards have better airtightness and water resistance.

4. Sealing design: Each key of the keyboard needs to be sealed to a certain extent to ensure the waterproof performance of the keyboard. Designers use O-rings, double-sided tape and other sealing materials to seal the keyboard.

5. Antibacterial design: The designer adopts antibacterial treatment technology on the surface of the keyboard to effectively inhibit the growth of bacteria and improve the hygienic performance of the keyboard.

1. 3D modeling design: Designers use 3D modeling software to design the overall shape and key position of the keyboard to ensure the keyboard's appearance, streamlined and tightness. Designers should set appropriate holes in the keyboard shell to ensure the waterproof performance of the keyboard.

2. Mold making: Mold engineers carry out mold design, mold flow analysis, material shrinkage analysis, and injection molding deformation analysis according to the designer's 3D design file, and then start mold making. After making copper work through CNC, pass high-precision mirror surface Spark machine discharge, wire cutting, etc. are precision-made into waterproof keyboard molds for mass production.

3. Manufacturing and processing: The designer uses an injection molding machine to inject the shell of the keyboard, and uses a laser cutting machine to make the surface patterns of the keycaps and keys. During the manufacturing process, it is necessary to pay attention to the selection of materials and processing technology, and to use a suitable sealing material to seal the keyboard.

4. Antibacterial treatment: Antibacterial treatment is a key manufacturing link. Designers can use metal ion treatment technology or other new antibacterial treatment technologies to ensure that the keyboard has good hygienic performance.

5. Testing and debugging: Before final assembly, the designer needs to conduct testing and debugging to ensure the waterproof performance and hygienic performance of the keyboard wired.

4. Quality inspection After the production is completed, the personnel of the quality department will conduct quality inspection on each keyboard to ensure the stable performance and high reliability of the keyboard. The main test items will include visual inspection, button accuracy, waterproof performance test, antibacterial performance test, etc.

5. The production efficiency is relatively lower than that of general keyboard manufacturing. Designers need to carry out more detailed debugging and processing in terms of material selection, sealing design, antibacterial treatment, etc., so the production efficiency will be affected to a certain extent. However, in the design process, advanced production technology and automation equipment can be used to improve production efficiency.
