Touch displays, for example for smartphones and tablets, use ultra-thin glasses whose production places special demands on temperature measurement technology. For this application has Optris the new infrared thermometer CT Laser G7 brought on the market. It precisely measures the surface temperatures of glasses ranging from 100 ° to 1200 ° C.

Electric drives open up new design possibilities for the vehicle body. Röhm Molding Compounds presents "Plexiglas Hi-Gloss NTA-5", a high-impact special molding compound for black, high-gloss applications and at the same time robust components such as the radiator grille, ventilation grilles, trim panels, mirror housings and pillar trims.

lpkf0519Current foldable displays are made of plastics and therefore prone to scratches, wrinkles and early total failure. Conventional smartphone displays do not have these problems because they are made up of at least two layers of partially tempered glass. Due to the glass, these displays can not be easily folded. LPKF presents with the "Lide "technology a solution to this problem.
