Offering high image clarity and exceptional precision, Touch International’s specialised medical touch screens are often used in surgical displays, patient monitoring units and hand-held devices to improve patient care.
Touch International (TI) designs and manufactures customisable touchscreen, display enhancement and touch-enabled devices for high-reliability markets such as the medical device industry.
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, TI has International Organization of Standardization (IS0)9001, ISO13485, and Aviation Supplier (AS)9100 Certifications with Class 10,000 cleanrooms and operates four vertically integrated facilities worldwide.
Our solutions include insulin pumps and other handheld medical devices, mobile industrial touch computers and medical touch monitors for applications ranging from patient check-in to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Class III surgical applications.
Austin serves as the corporate headquarters and primary engineering design centre, fully International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliant.
Shenzhen and Zhongshan, China, function as commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) engineering, sourcing, and high-volume manufacturing centres. Bangalore, India functions as a regional sales and engineering hub and has complete touch manufacturing capabilities.
Leading touchscreen technology for medical devices
TI specialises in the design and manufacturing of the latest in packet capture (PCAP) multi-touch technology from 0.5in to 70in. We can work with low minimum order quantities (MOQs) and has a library of reference designs paired with industrial-grade displays to leverage development speed and reduced engineering fees.
TI also offers resistive technology for legacy applications and has various sizes and configurations of standard designs for reference.
Enhanced touch display technology for medical applications
TI offers a series of touch enhancements, which include electromagnetic interference (EMI) filters, privacy filters, colour filters, polarisers, infrared (IR) filters, custom communication cables, embedded controller options, and custom cover glass.
Cover glass customisation includes tailored thickness, from thin and light to heavy-duty and ruggedized; custom shapes; sizes; curves; cut-outs for buttons; cameras, and controls; custom graphics such as colours, indicators, logos, indicators, as well as other brandings.
Surface treatments and coatings include anti-fingerprint, anti-glare, anti-reflective, anti-microbial and more.
Display enhancements include high-brightness, sunlight-readability, night-vision (NVIS), dual-mode (NVIS+SR), extended-temperature operation, transparent heaters, electromagnetic interference (EMI) shields, gasket bonding, optical bonding, and more.
Industrial computing and video processing technology
Various industrial computing options can be design-in as part of a complete pack, and TI has reference designs across multiple form factors to speed development and reduce cost.
TI can design and integrate single board computers, compact PCs, Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) media players and custom Raspberry Pi (RPi) integration.
Operating system options include Windows, Windows Embedded / Internet-of-Things (IoT), Linux and Android,
Peripheral integration and connectivity complete the computing package, with options such as cameras, controls, card readers, near field communication (NFC) / radio frequency identification (RFID), Power over Ethernet (PoE) accessories, repeaters, and a variety of sensors such as fingerprint, motion, heat, mechanical, electrical, along with other IoT applications.
TI also designs and manufactures custom video boards and has reference designs for customer integration. Any resolution (custom / full high definition (FHD) / 4K), as well as any input / output (high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) / video graphics array (VGA) / RS232 / PoE).
Custom housings and complete assemblies
Final assembly design and integration combine all of TI’s engineering and supply chain resources to deliver complete, plug-and-play touch-enabled products.
TI in-house metal and plastics capabilities include milling, laser sheet cut / bend / weld, large format thermoforming and hydrographics.
Examples of finished products include kiosk housings, stands or mounts; chemical and weather-resistant touch PCs; and custom hardware adapters for adaptation, integration, or retrofit.
Custom paint, graphics and powder coats can be applied to almost any final assembly to meet stringent requirements.
OFX Series multi-touch monitors are complete turnkey touch display packages that can be customised for a specific application.
Available from 7in to 55in, they include medical-compliant and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 60601-certified configurations.
Customisable design enquiries
All TI’s in-house engineering and manufacturing capabilities can dramatically reduce customer development time and cost, simplify the supply chain, and yield better products, changing the way companies can approach touch-enabled product design.
