EXPERTISE – We are your solution provider
Your success is our top priority. That is why we have systematically developed our company broadly and deeply in over 100 years of history: from innovations to development and production to customer service. Our specialists are at home in a large number of industries. Added to this is our considerable manufacturing depth in many areas: touch sensors, metalworking, electronics manufacturing, plastic injection molding, application technologies, component and system assembly. We do all this in-house. That gives us complete control over the quality of your products. Of course, the human element is equally important. We are always ready to listen to you. What makes all the difference is clear communication, personal contact, and close dialog with you. This kind of partnership builds a strong basis of trust. It’s an approach we value because it benefits both you and us. At your request, we will be happy to support you through the entire product life cycle.
INNOVATION – Creating trends keeps you ahead of the curve
Innovation is part of RAFI’s tradition. With our own engineering department and several high-tech locations, we continuously create innovative solutions for our customers. With a consistent focus on customer benefits. Because you can only get added value from solutions that really help. We have generated a number of innovations that are now world standards in the areas of key switches, operating systems, and EMS. However, our innovation work never stops. Every day we work on new prototypes for new operating concepts which can drive you forward. Simply contact us to discuss the opportunities and possibilities for your company.
MANUFACTURING – We produce Trust
To ensure you and your products are ready for a great future, RAFI applies all the key technologies for HMI (human machine interface) and EMS (electronic manufacturing services). Our production methods meet high standards of both economy and ecology. That’s because we aim to guarantee defined quality standards at optimum profitability, economical use of natural resources, and high environmental compatibility. This is why almost all production is in-house on our state-of-the-art machines: SMT and THT assembly, plastic injection molding, metal processing, contact technology, printing, and component and system installation. We even manufacture our own touch sensors in Germany. RAFI offers you everything from a single source.
GLASSCAPE – The next level of HMI
GLASSCAPE by RAFI sets benchmarks in capacitive touch technologies when it comes to the user experience. Here, haptic, visual, and acoustic feedback meets balanced ergonomics. The touchscreen platform was developed for the industrial environment and is manufactured entirely in Germany – by RAFI. With GLASSCAPE, our customers benefit from the long-term availability of the components, supply security thanks to independent production, and industrial-level ruggedness. They can also choose from the extensive portfolio of components and controls made by RAFI. Development, production, system integration, configuration, assembly, software, testing, packaging, logistics, approvals, and aftersales – all from a single source. We support you at every step of the way, from the idea to the customized finished product, and manage the entire process for you.
SERVICE – Always at your side
To boost the success of your project, we not only apply our extensive design, development, and manufacturing capacities. At your request, we can also take care of the entire life cycle management including after-sales service: from purchasing and materials management to worldwide logistics and repair management. Through our global networks, we are always in touch with the international markets. Our service portfolio is rounded off by the necessary infrastructure, the required industry standards, and – especially important to us – comprehensive project management on an equal footing with you.
