Market-leading, large-format touch sensor expert Visualplanet™ has formed a strategic partnership with Romag to create touchglass™, a glass laminated variant of touchfoil™. Building on touchfoil’s success, touchglass bolsters Visualplanet’s offering to worldwide integrators requiring durable and customised glass touch sensors for public-facing touchscreen solutions.
The market-disrupting partnership is an industry game-changer. Using state of the art glass shaping, curving and ceramic printing machinery, Romag will supply glass that incorporates customised borders and motifs. This enables Visualplanet to offer bespoke touchglass designs that are ideal for kiosks, self-service ticketing, vending and wayfinding, as well as multiuser tables and curved cabinets for the gaming industry.
Dan Spencer, Product Manager at Visualplanet commented “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% CAGR.
