Unveiling a plan to boost touch screen optics and performance, Touch International announced at Display Week 2011, it will be building lighter, brighter, resistive and projected capacitive touch screen systems with tighter, micro-etched borders and spacings.

Leveraging our dry-etch equipment and procuring specialized materials, Touch International will produce touch screens with optimized light transmission, weight and durability

Outlining a plan to boost its customizable resistive and projected capacitive touch screen lines, Touch International announced today at Display Week 2011 in Los Angeles, Calif., it will be leveraging its newly-opened manufacturing facility in Shenzhen, China, to build lighter, brighter touch screen systems with tighter, micro-etched borders.

Details of the touch screen improvements include:

1)    Lighter and more durable designs, through the use of specialized materials, such as Gorilla and borosilicate glass.

2)    Increased brightness with indexed matched films for optimal light transparency.

3)    Tighter micro-etched borders with 25 micron lines to allow for narrower borders, smaller package sizes, larger touch screens and better touch performance.

"By leveraging our dry-etch equipment in China, and procuring materials that will optimize light transmission, weight and durability, Touch International will produce touch screens with 50 percent higher resolution, better optical clarity, and faster, more accurate multi-touch capabilities,” explains Michael Woolstrum, Touch International CEO.

Utilizing its vertically integrated manufacturing system, Touch International can optimize its improved touch screens by adding cover glass lenses and display enhancement coatings for a fully customized, optically superior touch system.
