aTouch – Traditional shape with modern functionality
Listen to this article
While most of our products use the uxTouch design, we have noticed a need for the functionality it gives but in the traditional size. So, to meet our clients’ expectations, we have created the aTouch.
Both uxTouch and aTouch are specially designed LCD TFT displays with Projected Capacitive Touch (PTC). They are the perfect choice if you intend to have an interactive design and technology due to their absolute flat design and multi-touch capabilities. They feature chemically strengthened glass, which has increased durability thanks to the process of ion-exchange. They are easy to assemble, easy to clean and easy to implement into your design.
Today, most newly built devices use the uxTouch panel. It is slightly larger than the display and is stuck to the outside of the device. This gives the sleek and modern feel we are so used to through smartphone and tablet usage.
aTouch is the panel that used to be the norm. Before the age of mobile gadgets, when there was a clear distinction between what’s meant for the industrial market and what for consumer, the display was mounted from the inside of the device and into the classic hole. Now, we have reintroduced the aTouch for those older devices where only the display is being upgraded and where the panel needs to be the same size as the display. It has all the same advantages of modern technology as uxTouch but it is designed to fit older machines. Here is the current selection of our aTouch displays. After the 7”, coming soon are 5” and 4.3”.
A very important new feature that both uxTouch and aTouch have is the possibility of changing the glass thickness or even adding an additional glass layer on top – something that used to be impossible with the old style touch panels. Our engineers would be happy to tune it for you. Here is more information about glass thickness.
Right now aTouch displays are air-bonded as standard but they can be optically-bonded as a customized option. uxTouch come with optical bonding as standard so if you want to test the performance of an optically-bonded display, you can order one with uxTouch here.
