Visualplanet has responded to demand for smaller touchfoil sizes, providing design flexibility for self-service touch kiosk and vending machine manufacturers and integrators. Now available in sizes as small as 15" (diagonal, corner-to-corner), the touchfoil is used to create a touchscreen when applied to glass and combined with a display and computer.
The visualplanet touchfoil is a clear large format, projected capacitance, flexible film sensor that is applied to glass and many other surfaces to add interactive touch capabilities. The flexible materials and manufacturing processes used in its construction allows for easy size customisation, so product designers are no longer limited by the constraints of standard integrated touch modules. Choosing the touchfoil provides a wider choice in the type of glass and display for the end solution.
Using visualplanet’s unique patented MaskedCap method of projective capacitive technology the small format touchfoil can work through solid glass up to 15mm. This valuable feature makes it the touch sensor technology of choice for public facing displays withstanding heavy daily usage. Protected from user-abuse and the elements by the exterior glass of the enclosure, the touch sensor requires zero maintenance once installed. The dual touch offering is suitable for self-service, single user interaction with solutions including: wayfinding kiosks, vending and ticketing machines.
“At visualplanet, we work hard to innovate in line with our customers’ demands and are delighted to be bringing our expertise in large format touch sensors into this smaller format market with sizes as small as 15". We are now connecting with the manufacturers and suppliers of smaller self-service touch solutions to bring them the benefits of the design flexibility of our established touchfoil product,” said Mike Cole, Director, visualplanet. “There is a requirement for a touch sensor that enables the production of competitive and reliable interactive solutions without compromising the final aesthetic. The customisable touchfoil, delivered as a thin film package, now addresses this need for freedom in design creativity across a wider size range”.
Visualplanet has over 12 years of experience in manufacturing, designing and supporting their flexible film based touch sensors around the world, so quality and continued innovation are assured.
