Touch Active Surfaces

The ways we interact with technology (sometimes referred to as HMI or Human Machine Interface) has seen many changes in recent times. Where we once pressed buttons, flicked switches and turned rotary knobs we are now starting to swipe sensitive surfaces and touchscreens.

The technologies to achieve this are also changing rapidly. New touch or proximity sensing surfaces are flourishing and by combining decorative polymer foils with printed sensors or receptors it is possible to simplify the switch structure and reduce assembly and processing costs

Touch screen displays have grown too…

Conventional 2D surfaces are being replaced by curved touchscreens designed to blend into the profile of the interior of the vehicle. These geometric challenges are bringing new processing techniques such as FIM using anti-glare, anti-reflective and abrasion resistant foil technologies to the forefront. With the combination of optical bonding processes, it is also feasible to combine the sensor to the curved lens providing a single decorative and functional structure. 

McGavigan has been active in the research and development of these technologies and applications for more than 15 years, developing a broad range of structure and production processes.
