Face and back plates
At Gravic Group, we manufacture a variety of face and back plates for our industry partners who appreciate our ability to quickly design or adapt these products to their exact specifications, requirements and criteria.
A face plate provides graphical and functional solutions for human-machine interfaces. It contributes to the visual identity of a product, providing numerous types of functionality in terms of ergonomics, safety, execution controls, watertight seal and resistance to external water ingress.
Printing for a face plate is done on the inner side of the transparent, textured or polished, plastic (PET or PC) film. Once printed, it is laminated with an adhesive layer, ensuring that it is ready for fixing and that its colours are protected for a long time.

A back plate offers greater flexibility for multi-lingual and multi-model personalization of your devices at the end of the production cycle or in after-sales service. It is essential to ensure the functionality of the device and to help improve the ergonomics of its connection to the device. Like the front face, the back face provides a durable solution, printed using silk-screen or digital technology.

Automotive Speed Dials
Manufacturing automotive speed dials requires strong control of all the printing parameters of opacity, texture, transfer, light and colour during the screen or digital printing phase.
At Gravic, we take a particular care to control these screen-printing parameters.
- Our manufacturing process allows us to offer a range of products on sheets or rolls, depending on volumes.
- Selected adhesives can be screen-printed to make them the most competitive for this type of market.
- Camera monitoring between printing and cutting ensures the dimensional compliance demanded by the automotive sector.
- A final 100% control by a camera is made before the delivery.
As part of a new project, our expertise in this area now enables us to offer you your desired colour and opacity further up the line of the production chain.
