A custom manufacturer of dials, gauges and instrument clusters for the boating and marine industry approached idproducts with a challenge to help design a backlit inlay for a steering wheel application. The quantity used was relatively low, and expensive high quantity production tooling was not in the budget. Tim McCann, the owner of idproducts, made the sales call and suggested that we die-cut a thick, semi-rigid foam, and apply a back-printed polycarbonate overlay with see-through tinted dead front windows for LEDs to the top of the foam. The outcome was outstanding and our customer was thrilled!
