From Mechanical HMIs to Touch: Old vs New Technology Webinar

As resistive and capacitive touch technologies have become more cost effective with far greater performance, these high-tech HMI designs have become more widespread across all industries from consumer products, to medical, and even military applications. Manufacturers continue to phase out the legacy dome and tactile switches with higher reliability touchscreens that offer far superior flexibility, fewer moving parts, and the ability to downsize and consolidate system components.

From Mechanical HMIs to Touch: Old vs New Technology

However, this brings a new and unique set of program concerns such as integration, firmware development, obsolesce/material risk, and most importantly understanding what technology works best for the right application.

This webinar will review the technology behind today's touchscreen products and the steps necessary to bring next-generation products to market.

America's Oldest. A History of Innovation.

Today at Epec, the customer comes first, and everything we do must be put through that filter. Whether it is developing e-commerce platforms to make it easier to work with us, or creating a NPI (new product introduction) process that helps our customers get to market faster, or the other 10 new projects we have in process, we must focus on building the new. By doing that every day, and by always making the customer our top priority, we plan on being here for another 65 years and then some.
