Vendors combine forces to craft durable touchglass
Visualplanet has partnered with Romag to create touchglass, a laminated variant of touchfoil. The vendors are designing the product to meet companies' needs for a durable and customizable touchscreen, according to a press release.
The touchglass is made using glass shaping, curving and ceramic printing devices. Romag will supply the glass, and Visualplant will offer touchglass designs for kiosks, vending, tables and more.
"Visualplanet invented touchfoil and founded the large format, 15-75 inch, flexible film Pro-Cap touch market — a market that continues to grow significantly at 6-8 percent CAGR. Customers have been asking for an 'on-glass' version of touchfoil and we are now able to respond with touchglass, allowing us to directly compete against the incumbent suppliers of glass laminated touch sensors," Dan Spencer, product manager, Visualplanet, said in the release. "Together, we can tailor-make touchglass in volume, as a single, dual or multitouch sensor to meet integrators’ vast scope of needs, and an anticipated 99 percent of design briefs."
