Inside CHERRY MX ORANGE

1 UPPER HOUSING

The Upper Housing is a CAD high precision component made of plastic polymer. With a tolerance of less than 0.01 mm, the component guides the switching slide precisely, forming the CHERRY MX keyswitch’s switching mechanism housing. The housing features the updates of the MX2A switch family with improved sliding rails geometry.

2 SWITCHING SLIDE / STEM

A CAD high-precision component made of plastic polymer specifically for the CHERRY MX creates the pre travel and the keystroke feel between the upper housing and coil spring. The key cap is attached on the upper part of the stem.

This orange switching slide is responsible for the linear switch characteristics of the CHERRY MX ORANGE. Due to the straight TLS surface, the switch triggers directly.

3 GOLD CROSSPOINT CONTACT

Gold-based, the crosspoint contact is the heart of every CHERRY MX keyswitch and the basis of its incredible reliability and durability. With absolute precision, these triangular cross-contacts meet each other at precise right angles. This unique CHERRY innovation and ornate gold-plating make the electrical contact enclosure self-cleaning and gives the keyswitch permanent protection against corrosion, guaranteeing the keyswitch for more than 100 million operations.

4 PRECISION COIL SPRING

The MX2A generation barrel spring recreates the original spring force of the legacy MX ORANGE while ensuring a smooth while accentuated key press.

5 HOUSING BASE

Dual-functional, the housing base component is made of plastic polymer and glass fibre. The inner part forms the mounting for the CHERRY MX keyswitch’s switching mechanism. The outer part is both the base and mounting surface for CHERRY’s mechanical keyboards.
