3M Touch Systems has expanded their line of Multi-Touch Projected Capacitive Touch Displays to include screens with diagonal sizes of 18.5", 21", 24.5", 27.5", and 32". The expansion also includes three Dual-Touch Chassis Displays with diagonal sizes of 15", 17", and 19".

3M MicroTouch & Multi-Touch Surface Capacitive Touch Displays utilize an all-glass surface capacitive touch sensor and proprietary 3M ClearTek™ Hard Coat to deliver superior durability, 91.5% light transmission, and ultra-fast up to 6 millisecond touch response time. 3M MicroTouch & Multi-Touch Surface Capacitive Touch Displays employ an all-glass touch sensor that has no moving parts, whereas 5-wire resistive solutions rely on compressing the top film layer against a conductive coating to recognize touch. Since force is required to activate a resistive touch screen, it is susceptible to mechanical wear and the appearance of "Newton Rings" which can potentially reduce product life and optical performance. These rugged 3M Displays continue to operate in the presence of on-screen contaminants and carry an "unlimited touch" warranty for a period of 3 years. In addition, 3M owns the design and tooling for the display thereby increasing control over the product life cycle and decreasing the possibility for an external change.
