The Power of Integration Partners
A world leader in manufacturing and supplying touch solutions to the gaming market approached visualplanet to develop a bespoke version of its touchfoilTM touch sensor
To enable the creation of a brand-new range of curved gaming machines, a unique product was required
To design a high-performance touch sensor that could be securely attached to curved glass with no loss of performance or clarity. Approval, testing and rapid manufacturing were all required within a short lead time.
We were chosen for our level of expertise gained over a decade of touchfoilTM design and manufacturing.
MEETING THE CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS
The ability to scale manufacturing, especially for large quantities of specialised product, enables visualplanet to meet demanding volume and quality requirements within short lead times. In building this solution the benefits of visualplanet’s consolidated UK design and manufacturing team allowed for a flexible approach and rapid prototyping, vital as time to market was a crucial requirement.
In designing a bespoke touch sensor that could easily be applied to curved glass, we also delivered highly accurate touch resolution, fast performance and seamlessly integrated the new design with existing hardware.
Through extensive environmental testing in partnership with the customer, the touchfoilTM solution met or exceeded all the requirements set out in the original brief.
To meet the capacity requirement, we invested in both additional machinery and scaled our workforce, quality standards were maintained while the rapid deployment and application needs were satisfied.
A new range of curved machines fitted with the custom touchfoilTM solution were launched during 2013. They have gone on to win critical acclaim and awards and through increased game usage they have become the current benchmark for the gaming industry.
