Do you want an i-pad look and feel in your product?? Our Flushtouch is a unique touch window and coverlens solution perfect for bringing a rapid, risk-free, consumer 'look and feel' to your industrial and medical touchscreen applications. Suitable for standard resistive and projected capacitive (PCAP) sensor technologies, that can be easily integrated into or mounted onto a target design.
Design of the front panels for industrial and medical touchscreen systems is increasingly influenced by expectations resulting from use of mobile phones, tablet technologies and other touch-based consumer products. The andersDX FlushTouch service helps OEMs to meet these expectations with totally flat, bezel-free designs that combine standard touch sensors with touch window or cover-lens technologies, different materials and finishes and a variety of custom options.
This service is available for all touch sensor technologies and is compatible with display sizes from 2” to 22”. Glass or plastic front panels and touch borders are available, ranging in thickness from 1.6mm to 20mm. Flexible membrane options are ideal for medical applications and other environments where ease of washdown and cleaning are particularly important.
The completely flat, bezel-free nature of FlushTouch designs allows touch functionality to be expanded beyond the active display area and simplifies the cleaning of the front panel. FlushTouch options that help to further enhance user experience and optimise industrial designs include matt or gloss finishes, coloured borders, rounded corners, the graphic printing of logos, icons and buttons, cut-out holes and rear grooves for LEDs. IP65-rated FlushTouch configurations are also available.
FlushTouch implementations are viable for low-volume applications thanks to low non-recurring engineering (NRE) costs and minimum order quantities (MOQs). Designs can be supplied pre-integrated with TFT panels through airgap lamination or optical bonding allowing andersDX to provide a single-supplier solution for product development, manufacture and quality control.
Mike Logan, Product Marketing Manager for andersDX, says: “Touch has become fundamental to the user interface in industrial and medical designs and users are becoming increasingly demanding based on their experience of consumer products such as the iPad. FlushTouch front panel designs not only meet specific application and environmental requirements but provide the user with the same look, feel and experience they have come to expect from their consumer devices.”
