Courtesy: American Industrial SystemsThe multi-touch screen displays from American Industrial Systems (AIS) offer an interactive and unique dual-touch, gesture experience for users. Instead of just one touch point, the projected capacitive touch technology allows tracking of two simultaneous touches across the entire touch screen. Gesture-based user interactions requiring simultaneous, dual-touch capabilities including panning, zooming and rotating are also made possible with the technology.

This technology make the multi-touch screen displays ideal for a multitude of new emerging applications in self-service kiosks, Point-of-Purchase (POP), Point-of-Information displays (POI) and industrial machinery. Engineered for a diverse range of graphically intense application environments, these open frame displays are also suitable for control, monitoring and diagnostic applications in hospitals, medical facilities, building and industrial automation. 

The proliferation of application possibilities in the retail environment is a driving force behind the explosive growth and demand for multi-touch screen displays with gesture capabilities. Retailers are always looking for new ways to draw traffic and accelerate their omni-channel agenda in-store. AIS touch screen monitors with dual touch capabilities compatible with Windows 7 and other popular programming languages are poised to deliver on these new and fast-growing opportunities in retail kiosk markets. The multi-touch displays allow developers to design products that offer retailers interactive and engaging kiosks that improve in-store merchandising and help connect their shoppers to the online and virtual worlds. 

The AIS multi-touch gesture displays feature an industrial grade IP54 ingress rating TFT LCD flat panels in a flush mount chassis or open frame design. These industrial multi-touch chassis monitors are commercially off the shelf units (COTS) and come standard in a selection of popular sizes including 15.6”, 18.5” and 21.5 in”.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
