Dr. Filipp Ignatovich, Chief Technology Officer, at Rochester-based Lumetrics Inc, presents latest findings on cell phone construction variability to the plastics industry at the 2014 AIMCAL – The Association of International Metallizers, Coaters and Laminators conference.

The leading manufacturer of thickness measurement and non-contact measurement solutions, Lumetrics®, Inc. was selected to present at the prominent 2014 AIMCAL Web Coating and Handling conference. A leading conference on plastics applications, trends, and issues. Dr. Filipp Ignatovich, Lumetrics CTO, presented his work on critical measurements of multilayer screens for tablets and cell phones, and the inconsistency among brands.

The field of touchscreen technology is undergoing an explosive growth and development. With the high pace of the consumer electronics market, there is significant pressure on all aspects of touchscreen business, from improvements in technology, to improvements in quality control.

Dr. Ignatovich’s paper explored the requirements on all cell phone and tablet manufacturers to understand and improve their processes for manufacture of their products and provide the highest quality and repeatability. In order to understand their process a manufacturer needs to be able to measure their products in a repeatable manner at their production line.

“We were surprised at the variability among brands”, said Dr. Ignatovich “We expected differences because of the number of layers in a typical cell phone or tablet screen.” “With our new measurement technology, manufacturers will be able to evaluate their processes in real-time and make the corrections they need.”
