Optical bonding is the process by which a thin pane of glass is sealed onto the display screen of a monitor. The glass is coated to be anti-reflective and fastened into place implementing one of several technologies, including the use of silicon adhesive.
The result is greatly increased display visibility under virtually all types of conditions, including outdoor applications that are exposed to the sun and other weather elements. Before optical bonding, monitor displays were often difficult to view due to reflected sunlight or ambient artificial light, accumulation of dust, or condensation.
Users were compelled to block the light in some manner or frequently wipe the display clean in order to be able to read the screen or conduct transactions.
No longer. With optical bonding, the displays on Caltron Industries’ touchscreen monitors are consistently easy to see. As the use of Human Machine Interface, or HMI, technology becomes more prevalent, customers will increasingly expect the clear, high-contrast computer graphic displays that optical bonding provides.
Optical bonding provides an airtight seal between display and enclosure. With this gap eliminated, condensation and dust no longer obstruct the user’s view of the display....
